Treading Water

Do you ever feel like you're just treading water? Like you're only doing the minimum to get by? The last time I really felt this way was when I got called to be the Young Women's president. For a couple of months, I just made sure some activity was planned for Wednesday and someone was teaching a lesson on something come Sunday. That was about it. It was months before I felt like I was actually making headway in the program.

Now is another one of those times. I'm not sure why, exactly. I had a baby last Christmas; why can't I do things now when my body is better and Ollie is older? Of course, last year at this time I wasn't back to work. And Rhett was still going to a babysitter twice a week. That might have something to do with it. But this year is different. I feel like there are a million things I want to do (or feel like I should be doing), but I just can't. I'm really just doing the minimum.

So please forgive me if I skip a Monday, or a Friday, or all week. (And really, I know I care way more than any reader of this silly blog.)

We'll just pretend this is Rhett saying, "You can do it Mom!"


  1. i'm totally there with you. it just takes all my time to just maintain is what i feel. i can't get any "extras" done; it's so frustrating and bumming. i'm always saddened when it's a M, W, or F and you don't have a new post. :) but i understand, so no worries.

  2. I can relate. I felt like Sept, Oct, Nov were a blur of getting NOTHING done! Just so you know, the calendar in my kitchen was on September until the latter part of November. Blah.
