Bah Humbug!

Alright...I blew a gasket tonight.

Jared & I got into it {oh & you thought it was all rainbows & butterflies around here? Nope.}.

I haven't left the house in six days. Count them- six. S-I-X. That's a long time to be cooped up & not have one single breath of fresh air. I have avoided getting Jett out in an attempt to keep him from getting more sick, & all the while some major cabin fever has been setting in on my part. Oh, & who knows if my attempts at keeping him healthy are even working! There is still snot flung from here to Kingdom Come!

I have been working my butt off around this house trying to get it in tip top shape for Christmas. Cleaning, painting, organizing, shopping, blah blah & every other woman who is trying to make it a perfect Christmas for her family.

OUR to-do list is a mile long, & somehow it feels like it all is falling on my shoulders to complete. I can't do it all. I simply can't. There aren't enough hours in the day & I'm gonna need some help.

Finally tonight, I had had enough. Jared walked in the door, I handed him the baby, & I walked out the door. I needed to get out of this house. I left, & didn't come back for five hours. I spent the time chipping away at my to-do list, turned the radio up loud in the car, bought some last minute Christmas gifts {do you realize how hard it is to buy presents for someone you are ticked off at?}, bumped into my bff & did some shopping with her for a little while, & tried to enjoy the fact that I wasn't racing against time to get home for a bottle, or a nap, or a bath {again, do you know how hard it is to enjoy anything when you're ticked off at someone?}. I finished the evening off with doing my grocery shopping {it was actually the perfect time to go grocery shopping. No lines.}

I needed to get out of the house. I needed to get some errands done. I needed a freaking glimpse of the outside world. But now my feet hurt, my back is aching, & I missed my baby's bedtime. I'm mad at my husband. I'm mad at this day. I have two words. Bah Humbug.

Tomorrow will be better.
