I want to stop.

I want everything to pause for just a moment while I step outside and take a break. A nap would be preferable, but any sort of break will suffice.

Even a deep breath will do.

A blissful few hours where there is nobody teething or asking for something in a language I don't understand. Where there are no dirty bottoms or snotty noses that need to be wiped and which guarantee more then their fair share of screaming.

I want, for just a while, to not be the one who knows where everything goes or she who does what needs to be done.

I want to find a sunny spot and lie down the way I used to.

I want to sit and recharge.

Relax and Unwind.

I want my world to feel the way these guys sound.

I'll come back then, I swear.

And I'll be all the better for it.


  1. Oh you poor thing sounds like you need a big dose of me-time. It's sooo exhausting being the one having to 'think for everyone else'. Thanks for the link such a beautiful song x

  2. Took the words right out of my keyboard (?). Hope you manage to catch up with yourself over the weekend. Take care:) Jen.

  3. I would have been happy for a bottle of Calgon -
    the commercial that said Calgon take me away.
    A hotel room for the night where I wouldn't have to get up for any one - just click the remote to change the channel and a breakfast menu for room
    service and then go home to the five of you guys.
    Those were my dreams on those days when I could
    feel my brain cells dying. Love you.

  4. it would seem, my friend, that we have had the same kind of day ... week ... i was just sitting down to type a post titled, "There's gotta be more ..."

  5. It was so nice to hear from you today, I hope everyone sleeps at the same time for the next day or two and you get to just sit for a few minutes in the quiet. I lay down to have my eyebrows waxed today and exhaled the hugest sigh being the first time I stopped all day (even if hot wax was being spread on my brows it was a nice 5 minutes). How times change :) Hang in there sister! love you

  6. Try, try and do it... on the weekend? 3 hrs at least??
