Have you ever been so stressed that you can barely take it anymore? We got back from vacation, a fun but exhausting one at that, and we are currently trying to get back into a normal daily routine at home. I am so behind right now, and Scamp has been exceptionally needy and fussy these past few days. I am literally exhausted emotionally and physically. The house is a wreck, and I can't seem to get anything done. Clothes are strewn all over the house, and the aroma of cat pee, yes that's what I said, is permeating from several rooms.
Not only has Scamp been irritable, Scratchy, our cat, has been having a major breakdown and is urinating everywhere he's not supposed to. We came back from vacation with poo littered all over one of our shag carpets. I am this close to giving him away even though it would break my heart. I'm taking him to the vet tomorrow (if he doesn't escape like he did before). I don't know what I'm going to do if the vet can't give me any sound advice to stop his bad behavior.
My brain is wracked with negativity because I am so frustrated with all of these issues. This morning, I thought today would be a new day, and I would at least pick up the mess surrounding our downstairs rooms. But, once I started clean-up, I kept running into more and more obstacles, ie. cat pee and new Scamp messes. I would clean one area just to find more newly strewn toys to pick up.
She's in her bed right now calling, "Maaama, Maaama." It's her nap time, and I haven't even eaten lunch yet. I think I will be about one-fourth less cranky once I have a good meal in my belly. And she's sound asleep:)
Hopefully, with some rest, and a few minor areas clean I will be able to de-stress. Then, it's off to Mommy and Me swim lessons. It's fun but with it being a 40-minute drive, I hope we survive the trip down and back. And I hope I come out of this day feeling like I'm still a good Mommy.
