Daily Affirmation #FAIL

Thanks. I Got It.

I love the uplifting app I started using January 1, but this particular entry makes me more tired than inspired:


Yes. I know.

It comes with being a parent.

This feeds my martyred soul. Those people I live with, I mean SERVE, have no idea. No idea.

I don't know what to say. This app you're using? I'm a combo of being in awe and totally stunned. This entry not only makes me tired but also....kinda angry.

:-)

I'm right there with you. Hopefully the next uplifting message will be less obvious and more helpful?

That entry was written by someone who doesn't know what it's like to fill a 16 hour day with 20 hours of tasks.

Gigi said...

Well, THAT seems to sum my life up perfectly.

I'm going to go ahead and lay it out there:

Picking up dog crap?
It's beneath me.

I mean, do it.
But nothing can ennoble the task.

(Not even a tiara. Apparently.)

Thanks for the laugh. This reminds me of the time I was in a bookstore and saw a "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff" WORKBOOK. Really?

OK, now I feel like a lazy-ass bum. You mean I"m not supposed to pat myself on the back for every tiny chore I accomplish and banish the ten I didn't from my mind? I have enough guilt and anxiety as it is.

I think that quote is less inspirational and more annoying than anything. There's only so much any of us can do.

But can you do those jobs while wearing pajamas?

Sounds like my time in the military, my career, and whatever the wife asks me to do. This quote covers all bases!

My calendar for 2012 features a dumb comment from a man for every day of the year. (I know, how could they find enough to fill a year?) Today's is "Don't believe there's any difference between a monogamous and polygamous relationship. Those are all just big words, like 'gymnasium.'" Gene Simmons

I have found said comments very inspirational

I'm just impressed you're using an inspirational app. Maybe THAT'S where I'm going wrong. I'm not using the right apps (or any apps at all for that matter).

Ah, jobs, jobs, and no end in sight. :)

What are you talking about? I'm ON it! I just had two spoons of espresso so for the next 34 minutes, the sky's the limit.

(then you're on your own kid)

That may be the only way I survived my slipped disc when my husband was out of town. Try crawling to a litter box to scoop it on your hands and knees, actually, don't try it. It sucks.

I think it should be more appropriately entitled, "I have to do it. Most jobs are beneath me but I get stuck doing them anyway cause God knows, no one else will do this crap around here."

Janey B said...

Amen, sister. Imagine a man saying such a thing....wait...I can't.

Erin said...

I absolutely feel scooping dog poop is beneath me. And therefore, the job does not get done. Until my husband, who maybe needs better self-esteem, does it.
