Snooze

Here I go being a slacker blogger again. Actually, I have a couple of finished blog posts, but they are both more on the negative, issue-oriented side, and I feel like I need to post something more positive again for a change, as well as some pictures.

BUT... I am soooooooooo tired. As in reeeeeaaaaaalllllllyyyyyy tired. I sleep like 10 hours a night, and nap another hour during the day, and I am still just sleepwalking the rest of the time. I feel like the biggest slacker mom - the floors need mopping, the laundry needs to be put away, the dishes stay in the sink dirty at night, and if I do storytime before bed with the kids, it literally sends ME to sleep while I am reading. Pathetic.

I should be out of this phase within the next couple of months. Yawn. I HAVE to go to bed now.

  1. Congratulations on yoru pregnancy. It must be hard being so tired when you already have children to look after - I was sleeping 15 hours per day with my first pregnancy so am hoping not to repeat that next time.

This is the phase I always think to myself "how can I have another!!!" and then when I feel good and energetic again, I am like okay I can and would love to have another. Well enjoy your sleepy days!!!:)

  5. Hubbys main roll is to provide and as she said, he is working 60+ hours a week. More husbands should provide like that so the wife can stay home. And if they do want to help great, if not, its not their job. But its sad that's not the norm in our messed up world today.

  6. wouldn't it be better if he only worked 40 hours a week and she worked 20 hours a week so that the family would have their father home an extra 20 hours? why is she being so selfish with the childrens' time? Shouldn't they get to see their father as well as their mother? Aren't the conservatives the ones arguing that kids need both a male and a female parent in the house? How is seeing the kids for an hour or so every night before they go to bed providing them any kind of parental figure? it's a sad thing to say "he's working hard for the kids" when working hard means he doesn't get to see the kids. Or here's an idea...STOP HAVING KIDS. that way he wouldnt have to bring in more and more money in order to feed and clothe the kids.

  7. I'm there too. I just can't get enough sleep and I find my head drooping during the day. We're expecting our 4th child this November. By the way, congratulations on your new little blessing.

  8. I know that section above is closed but I just have to say everything you wrote in addition is dead on!!! I am sorry you have a bunch of arogant, hateful readers. It sure is funny how they say you are hateful for saying something truthful. It sickens me really. All the comments on your post that were negative were just filled with stupidity. I was seeing the typical American writting to you. Dumbed down. Just for the record, you and Pastor A. are such a blessing to us and have taught us so much and opened our eyes to so much in the Bible and the world so I thank you. You encourage me to be bold in the Truth. Keep it up and forget about all these IDIOTS who have nothing to stand on. Oh and if anyone happens to see this.............they are so far from hateful and judgemental it is ludicrous to even suggest that.

  9. Instead of attacking our troops, maybe you should be thanking them. They are the reason you are allowed to spew your nonsense. They are fighting for you. Even if you weren't born in America. And I will not sit quietly while you spew nonsense about my husband, who serves in the US Army, and puts his life on the line for idiots like YOU. As for the sinful people, people make mistakes, I made a mistake. I think I've paid for my mistake a million times over. I hope you NEVER have to feel the pain of giving your child to another person. I hope you NEVER feel the pain of having your husband go over seas to fight, with the possibilty he might not come home. Until you can feel compassion and until you've walked a mile in someone's shoes, you really should just stop. And I think closing the comments on the above post was cowardly. You spew your crap on a public blog, you should be willing to take the crap people give you. Especially when you are so wrong on so many levels.

  10. Hello,
    I noticed you disabled comments on your last post and I wanted to contact you regarding your addition. That was a much better written piece and while I don't agree with you on everything I appreciate you composing those thoughts in a much more respectful manner. I agee, people shouldn't be hateful when commenting , but in their defense I do believe they were reacting to the hate they felt after reading what you wrote. Anyway, your last addition was a much better testimony to your place as a pastor's wife, christian and mother--I felt I had to let you know.
    God Bless,
    Suzanne

  11. Christena,
    Well from the statements you made it shows you know very little about the Bible and what it says we are suposed to do. And I'm so sick of talking to ignorant people on here. I just don't have the time to correct your stupid theroy about the family. It's very simple, if you don't like this blog, don't read it!

  12. Hello Zsuzsanna,

    This might be removed because it's the wrong posting section, but i have to second the confusion people have:

    1) You're upset that people use contraception/resort to abortion, but you're upset with the obviously higher expense on taxpayers that is mothers on welfare. Which is it? What's more vital? your views on the sanctity of life or your tax dollars? You can only pick one. I suppose, it is theoretically possible that humans just abstain from intercourse until it is fiscally realistic to raise a family. But as you know, humans are fallible. That's what makes us... human.

    2) telling people to work harder is like cramming a square peg in a round hole. Official unemployment statistics are at over 10 percent, with a total of underemployment at more than 26 percent, and unemployment among teenagers seeking jobs at over 70 percent.

    This is a recession. If the united states was a village of a 100 people, and there were only 90 jobs to go around, what do you think the 10 people who can't get jobs are going to do? "Work Harder?" I wish that if i worked hard a job would magically fall into my lap. How would the millions of hardworking Americans whose jobs have left overseas feel about your casual dismissal?
    "Oh just work harder lololol!"

    3) I'd be very, very careful to make such radically strong statements that you are so opposed to welfare and socialism. You never know- one day you may have to eat your words. Whether or not you like the gov't- it would unconditionally provide you with a safety net if you ever needed it. What if your husband dies- or worse, leaves you? This may seem like an impossibility, but look at folks in the GOP. Look at Ted Haggarty (who has a gay prostitute).

    I can't believe you're not afraid of testing god's wrath with your audicity

  13. I am with you too. I and I do feel for you. I've never nursed while being pregnant and it's brought a whole new level of fatique into my life. Everybody keeps asking me if I'm excited. I am, but my happy expressions are lost in the toilet bowl. Yes, this is the stage, where I'm like can I make it another day? Only a couple more months, right?
