As a stay at home mom, I have looked around and thought, "What the heck am I doing here. I am not good enough for this. I will never be what I need to be. I will never be able to do what needs to be done." These types of thoughts are unproductive and only serve to make things worse, but they are there and often sends me looking for that magical book, list, website, home notebook, box of index cards, or just sends me to the sofa with a bag of chips, a bowl of ice cream and a diet soda. Does that make me lazy? Does that bring to light the possiblity that I lack self discipline? Does this make me a failure at my job?

Todays modern conveniences, like running water and electricity, have enabled us to have longer and more productive days. We have to know that people in the way back when, got to turn it off at 6 pm in the winter, and everyone went to bed early because candles and oil were expensive. They got more rest. So, if I as a mom, have a longer day of schooling my kids, taking care of them, making meals, have a bigger home with more clothes, dishes, and indoor toilets to clean; I am going to be tired. Our bodies and our minds will give out on us on occasion. My most tired times come when my body is preparing for that uhm "special" time of the month that most women get the uhmmm pleasure of experiencing. I believe this is hormonal for me and other than getting more rest and making sure I am at least trying to get some nutritious food in my body, there is not going to be much else that can fix it. Call me lazy if you want to, but please avoid the hours of 1 pm and 2 pm.... I will be napping.
