I am struggling.
There I said it. I know that I am, I have been extremely stressed the past few weeks. One of those I can't really talk about it kind of stress. I will share more soon, I hope.
Last night I decided that I would get up early and make some muffins for my family and have some quiet time to prepare myself for the day. Well, I did get out of bed, have a cup of coffee and some quiet time before anyone woke up. I was patient when I got my girls up this morning, even though they really wanted to stay in bed.
Then the girls started to wake up. Sometimes in the morning they are not very nice to each other. In turn, I get really crabby. This morning was not really any different than any other day. There were tears, there was a little yelling. . .there were apologies.
Does anyone else have Mondays like these?
The older girls are off to school. I am mad at myself for another not so wonderful morning. But, I have to brush it off and tell myself that tomorrow I get another chance.
I am still working on my Mamavation Goals. My vacation to Disney World is getting closer and it is time to get serious again about getting healthy. Two months and two weeks until I am going to be relaxing in the Florida sun.

Tonight Pete Cohen will be joining the Mamavation Chat. If you need motivation, like I do, check it out. He will motivate you.
My friend Chele over at The Bonafide Life devotes Mondays to Goal Gathering. I keep telling her I am going to join in, so today I am going to share my goals for the week.
So here are my goals for the week:
Exercise! (My hubby has been really busy with work so I have not been getting to the gym. When Dora the Explorer is done, I am taking back the TV to do my EA SportsActive)
Sleep (Lately I have been getting to bed at about midnight and then getting up at 6:30. I need more sleep.)
Home Organization (My focus this week is the bedrooms.)
Quiet Time (If I get to bed at night, this should be a little easier to accomplish in the morning before my kids are awake.)
I am so thankful that everyday is a new day. I am so thankful for second, third. . .chances. I am thankful that my girls go to school and forget all about the crazy mornings. I am thankful for the amazing women that will read this post and give me a little push to get motivated again.
