Why Sunday's Are Hard

Before we talk about Sunday, let's talk about how I got to meet my new nephew on Saturday!

I now have two nieces on my side and three nephews on Tyler's side.  I absolutely LOVE being an aunt.  Cooper was born on Thursday and we got to see him and his big brother Trey on Saturday.  And as an added bonus, Tyler's other brother and his wife were there so we got to see our other nephew, Kellen, too!  He is only three months old.  It's going to be so fun watching all our kids grow up together!

I'll be honest, I do not miss that newborn baby stage, but I sure do love to snuggle them :)

Now, can we talk about Sunday's?  Do they stress anyone else out?  It seems like sometime in the afternoon, around 4:00, I get really anxious/depressed/sad.  I start to think about Tyler going back to work and everything going on for the week ahead.  I guess it's just that I'm in a stage of life right now that is really hard.  Each day seems so long and I count down the minutes until Tyler gets home from work.  He is usually gone one night a week traveling for work, which makes things just a little bit harder.  Most of my anxiety stems from Kase's therapy schedule and the fact that we have people coming in and out of our house multiple times a day (when they actually show up!).  I plan on doing another post sometime about how all of that is going, but it's just a lot to handle.

Thankfully my mom is amazingly supportive and comes up once a week to help me out.  Now that she is off for the summer it will be easier for her and she will be able to stay longer.  I'm seriously so thankful that she does this and I know the kids love it too!

I tried not to be too much of a downer yesterday and ended up being pretty productive.  I mowed the yard, did my first T25 workout in a long time, and even walked/jogged on the treadmill!

It felt really good and I'm hoping it is the jump start I need to get myself back on track with my exercising!

When I was done I realized that everyone in my house was napping so I pulled out this book that I recently bought myself.  I only got a few pages in before Kenley woke up, but I can already tell I'm going to enjoy it!

I spent some time working on Etsy orders last night and then crawled in bed and caught up on some TV shows.  I rarely watch TV anymore so I am way behind on some of the shows I watch.

I'm really hoping this is the week I get my butt in gear with exercising and eating better!

So tell me, do you get the Sunday blues like me?  


  1. I definitely do! Didn't get much accomplished yesterday, did do some work on some blankets though! Then when it's bed time I just lie awake because I'm so anxious about the week ahead, Sunday nights are my worst night for sleeping.

  2. I get the Sunday blues, too!! Especially if our weekend was jammed packed with activities and I feel like I didn't even get a weekend.

    I want to get that book to read soon because we're going to go see the movie. Have a great week!! :)
