It's not that I'm unhappy...

Just really, really overwhelmed. Sleep deprivation, hormonal swings from pregnancy and birth AND the Depo-Provera, and learning to deal with three kids. Really overwhelming to me right now. Terrible mood swings. Totally unmotivated to do much to be productive. Just doing my best to keep my head above water.

Anybody been there? ;)

I know it will pass. I know the challenges will get better and different as I learn to adjust and when I get more sleep and a better routine going. Just trudging on, hanging in there. Trusting that I can do all things (yep, even mothering 3 kids) through Christ who gives me strength.

YES! I told your hub to prepare for survival mode for about two years. That's really what it was for us. We shuffled responsibilities and it tested us like nothing so far...but, when we learned to served on another (and exercised grace in failings), our love grew.

I'll come give you a break for a good long nap somewhere soon.

I was really moody on Depo-Provera and I'm pretty moody with two kids... so I think you deserve an extra helping of grace!!

I know I don't have three kids, but our schedules are so crazy and so totally opposite that I've been utterly overwhelmed and exhausted for a few months now. Between mothering full-time, working outside the home full-time, and Danny being in school full-time, I'm in full-time emotional and physical overload! I think some of us girls need to plan a night out for dinner and a movie and let the hubs babysit!
