I’m irritable….

my kids have been sleeping horribly for the last week. It is not doing wonders for me. When I’m tired I get angry quickly. I feel sorry for my kids when I’m tired. I’m not fun to be around.

ugh i’m still noticing side effects from the medication that landed me in the hospital. It’s very irritating.  It’s kind of funny at the same time though. I’m sure people are wondering why I have a disgusted look on my face. (the muscles in my upper lip twitch and make it look like I’m sneering. LOL I’m sure no one else notices it as it isn’t that noticeable, but it’s still noticeable to me and it irritates me. I’d rather take a diarrhea side effect then this. LOL sorry TMI

Sunday SOAP: Do not be lazy!

I got the SOAP idea from Amy at Mom’s Toolbox.

Scripture:

Proverbs 31:17

17 She sets about her work vigorously;


her arms are strong for her tasks.

Observation:

I honestly think God is trying to tell me to stop being a lazy wife a mother. When I clean around the house it is rarely with a servants heart.

Application:

I need to make sure I pray before I do any type of housework. I need to be reminded of why I am a stay at home mom and what that entails. I have a job to do. Yea, I don’t get paid monetarily…but the payment I recieve in the littlest 2 sets of eyes is way more then money could buy. I know my husband appreciates a clean home and doesn’t want to have to deal with it when he gets home. I have been so lazy and selfish lately.

Prayer:

Dear Lord, please be with me while I embark on a new adventure of homemaking. Please help me in changing my selfish ways. Help me be the wife and mother you intended me to be and who my husband and children need me to be. Amen

ADHD

Yes I have more than one disorder. lol I can’t wait until my next psych appointment. That is when he will adress my ADHD. The bipolar is being controlled pretty well with the 10mg Abilify. I’ve noticed, and hubby has noticed, a huge difference in my fuse being longer these days. It takes me 10-15 minutes before I want to blow a fuse instead of 2-3 minutes. Which gives me time to recognize what is going on and am able to calm myself down.
My ADD on the other hand is a mess. I can’t stay concentrated on one thing for more then 2 minutes. It’s horrible and frustrating at the same time. I’m in the middle of doing something and then I think or see something I need to do and I drop what I was doing to go do the other. I never get to finish anything because of this. I will admit though that yesterday was a good day for me. I cleaned the entire house. (which rarely happens)
I really hope I get some meds that work for my ADHD. I’d love to be able to keep a clean house all the time!

CEH = Chief Executive Homemaker

And now I have an ‘office’. lol I wanted a spot to put everything I need to manage the home. I have my craft room, but it would just get lost in there. So, we have this space in our hall way. I made it mine. There wasn’t anything there to begin with except for cluttered junk.

So I cleared it and this is what it looks like. It holds my bill filer, calendar, board with daily/weekly cleaning schedule and this weeks dinner menu along with my home management binder.

My husband got me this from the hospital gift shop while I was there earlier in the month.

Insomnia

I absolutely hate this part. For the last week I have been having trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep. There have been many early mornings. My Meds are supposed to make me drowsy but…….not so much. I may be in a manic state right now. I know how to differentiate when I am depressed or not, but I haven’t quite pin pointed my manic state from a normal state.

I checked out a few books from the library on living with BPD. It’s nice to read stories of other people who suffer from this disease as well. There are several people whom I’ve told that just give me a look like “yeah right lady, it’s just an excuse for your behavior.” UGH UGH UGH It’s almost like since they have never had the disorder or known someone with the disorder, then it doesn’t exist. It irritates me so much. It really is a debilitating disease. Although I am happy that my family is being very supportive and most of all my husband. 

For 5 years he’s dealt with my ups and downs. I ♥ him.

The Library

Did you check out my new book list up in the menu bar? that is all ONE TRIP to the library. LOL I can NEVER get out of there with less then 5 books. I just can’t help it. It’s like shopping…but free! It actually does cure that need for me to spend money. At the end of 2009, I was 8.5 months pregnant and have 10 books checked out! I did not take them in until after I gave birth to our daughter on Jan 4! I had a $50 fine!!! So it’s free as long as you take them back. I blamed it on the pregnancy.
I rarely finish all of these books by the time I have to give them back. I usually request an extension.
Is there anything that you do that you can’t get enough of?
