I'll take any suggestions...

Lately I've just been feeling "Blah". I don't want to do anything, I don't have any energy to do anything and I'm perfectly content sitting on the couch watching TV. Usually, I can't wait for the boys to go to bed so I can work on one of the many projects I usually have going, but lately, I just don't want to do a thing. Every now and then I'll get a burst of energy and get something done; then I think, "wow, that was so cool to get something done; I'm going to be more productive and get more done tomorrow". But then tomorrow comes around and I don't want to do anything again. It's making for a very long list of things I need (or want) to do. Ugh...

I have been feeling the same way lately. And I have a REALLY long list of things I need to get done, UGH is this normal???

Don't do anything! I support you 100%. Sometimes we just need time to rest from the normally stress we as mom's go through. So rest girl rest.

I know how you feel, Steph. Just get pregnant-- then you have a big deadline that you can work towards!! Vanessa would love a little cousin to play with! Really though, you are superwoman, so I have a hard time believing that you sit around and do NOTHING.

You have just discribed what every mother goes through sometimes. It's a cycle with me, I'll be really motivatied and productive for a few days then hit bottom and no matter how many things are pressing to get done I just sit there with no energy. At first I thought I might have depression or something, but no, it's a normal feeling. My advice is to make sure you have all your vitamins, excercise, and study the scriptures and pray. If you do these things then eventually your rut will end.

There seems to be a lot of this going around! In our Ward we talk alot about "keeping or buckets full" This means we have to make sure we are strong and taking care of ourselves so that our bucket will be overflowing and we will share our spirit with others. It's great to relax and take down time! We all need it- and we all deserve it!! So rest up woman! Wait- are you pregnant?!

No, no, no - I'm not pregnant. My sister just thinks that would be a good motivational technique... :)

Steph, i just went through that not a month ago. The goals on my blog back then were results of feeling like I was depressed. I wasn't, just needed a new outlook on a few things. I'm with Jana, pray, read your scriptures and make sure you take time for yourself and you'll snap out of it. At least I did :). You are in my thoughts and prayers!!

Unfortunately, that is how I feel most of the time... yeah, I know I'm pregnant, but even when I'm not. I think you are amazing and maybe your body just needs a little break from always going. I agree with everyone else, just do what they say and I'm sure you'll be back to being your getting-things-done-like-crazy self soon! :)
