Up, then Down.
Sideways. Falling Backward. Bolting Forward.
Running in Circles without reaching anywhere.
Regrouping every morning to set off on the mission.
Stumbling by the end of the day.
Going to bed with all of the "didn't do's" trapped in my head on the pillow.

Watch the news.
War, oil spills, isn't there any good news?

Start over again tomorrow.
Wake up.
Get inspirational quote from the computer.
Today is the day.
It's all going to come together.
No one will complain. No one will cry. No one will be disappointed in me.
I will be the perfect mom and wife.
What is perfect anyway?

When did life get this hard?
I think I need a vacation.
