Do you every feel stressed? Do you every feel overwhelmed?.. ok now i am sounding like an infomercial ; ) But really? Well thats how I have felt the past couple months. There are so many exciting events happening this year and so many things in store for Drew and I but I just feel.. well stressed out.
I am pretty darn good about hiding “stress” emotions. Drew may beg to differ, but at work, with my friends, etc, I tend to always take the glass half full approach. If I have a bad day and vent on facebook with a 12 year old status update, people are shocked. People wonder what in the world is going on if Tara said something negative haha. If people only knew what I would REALLY like to say. haha kidding.. kind of. I know the things that stress me out are things that may not really matter when it comes down to it, but a girl can only handle so much!
For example, last december.. we found a house, a perfect house, in the same neighborhood as my mom and sister perfect house… everything was going smoothly and then bam it was not good.. then the next day it was looking to be better then BAM we are not moving. Our entire house was packed up and the utilities were scheduled to be turned off. Safe to say my glass was most certainly not half full that day, I wanted to take the box of glasses packed up and throw it across our empty house! Talk about a flipping roller coaster! I know this has happened to a lot of people, so I am sure some of you can relate. It was an absolute nightmare! We are in the process now of looking for our next “perfect” home. To say I have anxiety is an understatement. Lets just hope I dont pack my entire closet in my car and the same thing happen again ; )
Then you add the stress of wanting to start a family. If I want something, I want it immediately, like the next day haha. Of course starting a family isnt THAT easy. It takes time and ugh, patience. Who has time to be patient ; ) All kidding aside, I know it will happen when it supposed too. Lets just hope it happens this year ; )
I am not trying to sit here and throw a pity party for myself, althought it would be one well decorated party; ), I know I live a very blessed life and have SO much to be thankful for. I just needed to take a momemnt to blog vent. Because well, this is my blog and I will vent if I want too ; )
Hang in there girl! Everyone goes through times like this..you think I cannot handle one more thing thing happening, and then something happens and you somehow handle it…its supposed to make you stronger right?! xoxo
It will all work out! We're in the process of looking for our perfect home too and you're right, it's so stressful. Keep your head up girl!
I so know what you mean about the family part. I am so impatient and when I want something, I want it now. We are going on month 5 of trying to get pregnant with our first and each cycle gets harder and harder. Hang in there girl, our time will come when it's supposed to. =)
Everything will fall into place at the most perfect time 🙂 I hate that about the house! I also totally know where you are coming from on trying to start a family. That, too, will happen His perfect time! I know 2012 will be a year of happiness for you guys!
Hang in there. Just keep moving forward. 🙂
Tara keep your head up! Everything will work out according to HIS will. You will have your family in your dream house in due time. We all have obstacles at time and you will get through this. Stay STRONG!
I think a good vent session is just what you need! I've felt about the same, but not because things aren't going the way I want in the timeframe I want, but because I've had to deal with so many dang RUDE people!!! WHAT has happened to customer service or consideration??
Anyway, hang in there. Like you said, things happen with they're supposed to happen.
Oh girl I am so sorry about the house – that has to be so frustrating and heartbreaking but have faith a better house will come along. The baby WILL happen, it's tough because everyone makes it seem like you decide to have a baby and poof your pregnant, it's a lot harder. Just enjoy this time as a couple and before you know it you will see two pink lines and everything will change. Xoxo you are in my prayers- everything will work out!
I feel your pain Tara and everything will fall into place when you least expect. When my hubby got his job with Hunt up here, it was 6 months before we found the right home and another 3 months before I could transfer with my job up here…but it all happened when it needed to happen. Just have faith and keep up that pretty smile of yours. You, Drew and Sadie are in my prayers and hopefully you'll find the right house that God wants you to have and when you least expect it you'll
get pregnant. And there's nothing wrong with venting your frustrations….you're in my thoughts and prayers.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
Trust that the Lord will present you with the perfect home at the right time!
Glad u vented, sometimes did wonder how you do everything you post and have your own stuff going on without having a panic, as I would! Good luck with all your hopes becoming reality ! X
You vent all you want, sister!! We all understand and it's ok. I'm praying things ease up on you and that your stress level is reduced! Oh, and that you can grow your family soon, because let's face it, we all know you and Drew will make beautiful babies!!!
Hang in there! Things will start to get less stressful! It can't stay stressful forever, right? I have to keep telling myself that too.
