I Have the Blog Blahs

Been quiet on this ole site lately. Less writing = less comments = less motivation to write. It's a vicious cycle, huh?

This past week? The week from HELL.

Monday: Fifths Disease.

Wednesday: Hubby found out that everyone in his company, effective immediately, would be forced to take a 10% reduction in salary. And? His longtime assistant was laid off. And yes, I do realize that we're both lucky to be gainfully employed. But still.

Thursday: I was convinced that Baby had a sinus infection. Nope, DOUBLE EAR INFECTION. *sigh*

On top of Hubby's work situation, I'm dealing with work issues of my own that I can't really write about. Soon, but not now.

So life in general here in the Trenches has been a bit of a downer.

But then again?

I have this:
Here's to a better week ahead.

Sorry to hear about hubby's job situation. Super cute boys.

I guess that's why they say "when it rains, it pours". Hopefully the kids are feeling better soon and the sun comes back out!

Claire said...

They are so stinking cute!!! The end of May can really wipe out a parent, huh? We have been ridiculously busy too - end of the school year, leaving current job, finding new daycare - but I'm still reading your blog, no matter how busy it gets! Always uplifting and funny. And useful, too!

Good luck with all the drama...

Michele Renee said...

Jobs really suck. I've not been able to relax all weekend due to mine. Thank God for the boys, huh?

Hey, sister, if we lived closer I'd take you out for a margarita! Sorry to hear about hubby's cuts at work. I know you're both glad to still have jobs, but that salary reduction still has a big effect on your family! And you have just had an AWFUL month with all the boys' ailments! That is enough to make you want to just throw in the towel, I know! I know you are so grateful for your beautiful, spunky boys, but it's okay to have some "blah" moments sometimes. Just getting it all out there usually helps me a bunch! You're awesome and such an inspiration to me, bloggywise and mommywise! I'm sure God has great plans for you and the boyz; just hang on, have faith, and you'll ride out this yucky phase in life. Love ya!

I'm sorry about the blahs! I wish I had something good and inspirational to say ... I hope things look up soon!

Jenni Jiggety said...

Gah! When it rains, it pours!

Here's to sunshine and inspiration for you this week!

Amy said...

Oh bummer! Like you said though, a cut is better than losing a job. Still sucks big time.

Hope all is looking up soon - and that picture is frame-worthy!

Sorry...it will get better though. It always does, right?

Jim was laid off all winter WITHOUT unemployment. He's finally back to work, thank God, but I was sure all that togetherness would ruin a perfectly good marriage. The whole ordeal gave me a lot of material to write about.

Eva Robertson said...

Sorry for hard time. At least there's sun in the trenches to make those beautific boys' smiles extra bright!

Robin said...

Well, I hope your weekend turned out a whole lot better.

Hope your day today is beautiful.

Elisa said...

Sorry you had a bad week! It's amazing though, how much strength our children can give us. Cliché, but true :-)

chrissyrudd said...

Hang in there! I love reading your blog, you always bring a smile and "Thank God it's not just me!" to my lips!

Angella said...

Oh, they are dolls. I hope this week is shaping up to be better!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Wishing you a great week!

Amelia said...
