You know those days when you just want to cry "Uncle" and crawl back in bed, today is one of those days.

We had such a fun Memorial day weekend, we drove to St. George and the weather was beautiful. We hiked, went swimming, spent time with family and relaxed. It was AMAZING!!

And then today when I tried to return to normal life, life decided to reach out and sucker punch me.

Anything and everything that could go wrong has. I have been snappy, my kids are tired and cranky, tasks seem to take forever, and everything seems to be breaking, or choosing not to work properly.

So yes, I am ready to put this miserable day behind me and it is only 4:30.

It is also raining, but right now that seems to be a bright spot in my rough day because ball games will be canceled, which means I will be able to find the time to go get a new phone, because mine is dead and I have realized just how much I rely on that stupid thing.

I have shed many frustrated tears today but I have also been reminded of something I read in a really great book:

"Resistance, a kind of feeling that comes against you when you point toward a distant horizon, is a sure sign that you are supposed to do the thing in the first place. The harder the resistance, the more important the task must be." - Donald Miller (A Million Miles in a Thousand Years)

So through all the resistance life is giving me today I am trying to keep going, because stopping now would just be a waste of how hard I have worked to get this far.

Here's to Wednesday, may it be a lot easier than Tuesday was.


  1. Our day here has felt very very similar -- and we also just returned from a Memorial Day weekend vacation. Maybe that is just to be expected after trips -- always mess to be put away, everyone overly tired and out of routine, etc. It seems a bummer price to pay for trying to have a little fun, but there it is. Sigh.

  2. I am sorry friend. I hate those days, and I seem to get them more than I would like to...unfortunately. I am excited to take my family to St. George for the first time, I think I need some tips from you.
