I managed to get tackled during our soccer game last night and ended up with a hairline fracture in my wrist/hand, structural bruising, pulled ligaments, torn ligaments, and lots of swelling.  Nothing that a little brace (totally not going to wear that bitch much) and some rx Meds (which I DONT DO...I turn into a slug).  Don't worry, the other guys balls are on my wall.  GLORY!
I'm so playing next week...

60 ways to become the person you love...huh??? Meh..,

I am LOVING dressing myself.  I feel like I am getting back into the fashion groove.  I like clothes, I like looking nice, I LOVE dressing feminine...however, I am still having a hell of a hard time having any consistency to my confidence level.  What the hell man?  I get so grumpy every morning because I am so down on myself. Maaaaaybe because I see soooo many things that need to be done and I am not motivated to do them? I have no motivation, no energy...I dont want to blame it on the kids and the energy they require from me--but I will. No, I wont blame them--I, alone, am in control of my actions.  I think I have just been....lazy?  I hate that word becasue it does NOT describe me.  I work hard.  I am thorough, diligent, efficient, anal/OCD, I am a hard worker-I dont stop till things are done-NO BREAKS.  I dont know how else to put it; I have just had NO motivation; overwhelmed and numb to it.  When things arent perfect I feel like a failure.  I read an article not too long ago about perfectionism and procrastination.  It basically was saying people who deal with perfectionism also struggle with procrastination.  Perfectionist procrastinate becasue they anticipate failure.  If they start a task and dont finish it to their own personal standards of satisfaction, the intesnse feeling of failure can be overwhelming; so they procrastinate, putting off the failure that they could possibly face.  So maybe this is what is happening to me.  I dont want to start on all the things that need to be done because I am afraid I will not finish it-which means I would fail.  Sadly (and this is quite annoying and chaps my ass), things will NEVER be done.  There will ALWAYS be things to do.  Maybe that is why I dont want to start doing things that need to be done--BECAUSE THERE IS NO END!  *Sigh* 


Me:







I KNOW I am a good wife and mother--I put most of my energy into bettering myself in those areas...I LOVE being a wife and mother.  I can't seem to find "me".  I really dont know who "me" is apart from being a wife and a mother. Who am I?? *crickets*.  At the end of the day, when I am be myself, with my thoughts, I feel alone.  It is so lonely when you dont even know yourself.  Loneliness is about the scariest thing there is...for me at least.   I am STILL anxious in the "social" setting.I have been doing a really piss poor pretty shitty alright job when people ask me to do things.  BUT initiating anything social???--ugh, just kill me now...anxiety ridden--NO, anxiety bludgeoned.  I NEED PEOPLE.  I have people.  I have anxiety.  Whatever the reason for my loneliness, poor self-image, PITY PARTY, I will not settle for it being "just the way that it is".  Anyway, enough of the depressing post...
