I’m tired this week.

I’m tired of trying to think of something to write about my dream, or even thinking about my dream at all this week.  I don’t want to post comments. I don’t want to try to write something that doesn’t start with I.

I’m tired of trying to please a 14 year old all the time when she’s not at the stage to be pleased. I need to just stop trying to and let her be. She’s incapable of appreciating the things I do for her right now so I’m going to stop trying. Maybe then she’ll see.

I’m tired of not being able to eat whatever I want, (even though I am this week). I don’t want to think about food so much. It’s such a pain in the butt. (and grows on the butt) I want to eat whatever I want and be thin. It’s year 2009, why can’t anyone come up with that invention!?

I’m tired of trying to do the right thing all the time. I want to do something crazy and BAD and who cares what people think. Time to go to Las Vegas and have some fun.

I’m tired of my husband never going on vacation. He’s always here. I need a break. I want to be single for a month and then go back to married life!

I’m tired of wondering what I’m going to do with my career and how I’m going to do it. Why doesn’t it just happen?

I’m tired of worrying about everything.

Well, I feel better now that I got my tantrum out!

Till next week,



  • Oh, yeah. You are not alone! I appreciate your honest post, Kim. You are entitled to be tired! We all get tired of doing what we’re supposed to be doing and responding how we’re supposed to respond. After awhile, it’s just tiring to pretend to keep it up. I myself only blog when I have something good to blog about, which is why I don’t blog every week! I applaud you for taking this on, and taking a break!

    I can relate to the mother of a teenager blues. My son’s sarcasm can send me over the edge on a daily basis. I have always been a responsible dependable person and sometimes I too just want to break out of the mold, be a little wild and free before I am old and grey.

    Kim – I’m tired of all those exact same things!!! O.k., so I don’t have a 14 year old to please but you know what I mean. There’s plenty of other people I seem to think I have to please. Thanks for expressing your “tantrum” so I know I’m not the only one who’s tired.
