"I know you can be overwhelmed or underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?"
-10 things i hate about you

I feel so overwhelmed lately! I find myself more easily annoyed, quicker to temper, and sooner to yelling. And I hate myself for it.

Nothing seems to go right lately! Nate is having issues with BYU deciding he didn't really graduate. Medicaid denied me because I failed to turn something in (it was faxed in by ASU, not my fault) and so I get to fight with them. I haven't seen a doctor here yet and feel super guilty, but can't afford to. I have hardly prepared for this baby, once again, guilt. No one helps clean up, no one else cooks, no one was ready on time for church at 1 pm on Sunday, everyone stays up past bedtime, everyone gets up way too early, no one naps, the kids are off from school this week and fight all day long, the dog can't be trusted around Afton and so I have to keep them separated at all time which is just so fun, and on and on and on and on it goes.


No, that didn't really help.

The bishopric came by tonight, promised not to give us callings until after baby. yay.


Trying to focus on the good....that's hard to do when there doesn't seem to be much good lately.


  1. I am right there with you! Hang in there! Get a blessing and hopefully that will help some!


    My only hope is that 20 years from now, it will all be a blur, and I won't have anxiety attacks from remembering. :P

  3. Oh, Chris! How frustrating! I hope things get better for you soon! Bouts of utter frustration and overwhelmed-ness are temporary. Things will settle down, and you'll have a chance to remember how blessed you are. :) Love you!
