I’m sorry… but if you don’t think this is funny, well then, I can’t help you.

Anyway… things have been pretty quiet around here as I haven’t been my usual crafty self.  I was under the weather for a bit with some viral something and then the crazy pollen levels gave me a run for my money as well.  Add that to two little girls who are bursting with non-stop energy, a full-time job, a spouse that works every other weekend, a crazy time change (and all the other everyday crap that has to be accomplished to run a household) and you can probably figure out why the projects just ain’t crankin’ out like they usually do.

I’ve also found myself in a bit of a funk lately so quite a few evenings have been spent aimlessly perusing Pinterest, going to bed early, and watching way more Duck Dynasty than is probably normal.  I’m not sure what’s got my goat, to tell you the truth.  Maybe it’s that my body just needed some rest to recover from whatever had me down for the count.  Maybe it’s that I’m sick of budgets, money, saving, and analyzing every penny that I spend.  Maybe it’s that I’m tired of feeling like I can’t relate to a lot of the other moms I meet because I’m one of very few that actually work outside the home.  Maybe I’m tired of feeling like I can’t relate because they all have their moms and I don’t.  Maybe some days I really just want to be a daughter for a change, and I’m sad/angry/distraught that I can’t be that anymore.


I don’t know.  Whatever it is, it’s slowly getting better with rest, with some therapeutic runs, and with a little introspection and time in the Word.  Nothing like the Lord to put things in perspective.  (And a little painting doesn’t hurt either.)



  1. I am NOT a stay at home mom to my 2 kids and I lost my mom 8 1/2 years ago. My husband was laid off 2 months ago and we were already needing to watch every penny and now more than ever so I can totally relate to you. It does suck sometimes and you have every right to feel down if you want to. I know I do! But then you need to pick yourself back up and figure out how to get back to what makes you happy again.

  2. I'm sorry that you've been in a funk, Rhonda. We all go through times like that, and it sounds like you have plenty of reasons to be in a funk. I'm glad that you know where to go for help. The Lord really does have a way of putting things in perspective. Your last couple of sentences made me think of this verse, "This is my comfort in my affliction, that Your Word has revived me." (Psalm 119:50) And while I'm at it, here's one more, "Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (Isaiah 40:28-31) Praying that He gives you that strength! {sorry this is so long!}
