This Is Me

I try to eat well, but sometimes I just don't care.

I don't work out as much as I should.

I love french fries and onion rings way more than one person should, but pregnant Melissa likes them even more.

I suck at putting away laundry.  My own, not Mia's.  Her closet and drawers are always fine, mine not so much.

I work hard to help provide for my family, but some days I just want to throw in the towel.  So much wasted time and noise!  Work ethic has changed and I find it extremely irritating.

I often take my job too seriously and allow myself to get entirely too stressed out about things not worth stressing over.

One day I feel all put together in life - work, Mom, Wife and other days I feel like a total failure.

I consider most people's feeling and reactions before I do my own.  Especially when it comes to family.

I don't say no easily, but I am getting better.

I could be a better Wife.

I could be a better Mom.

I try to stay positive, but there are some days that such a simple task seems very difficult.

I struggle with how much time I'm away from home.

I get mad when I sometimes feel punished for actually wanting to work and the cost of daycare in order to do so.

I'm nervous about how we will balance a family of four.

Time at home, when all three of us are actually together, is limited and I often get frustrated by how little time that truly is.

But at the end of the day, I give what I can, I do what I can and I try to be the best that I can.

And these two?  They rock my world with their awesomeness.  Just a typical Saturday night in our house.

This is Me.
