The last few weeks have been a little rough! Since having my last baby I've had anxiety. It's usually in the mornings in bed when I think of all the things I need to do that day. And all the things that won't get done. When everyone is just waking up and needs something at the same time. Or in the car when everyone is fighting and screaming. And when every surface in my house is covered with dirty dishes, clothes, toys...etc. I guess at times when I feel like there is no possible way for me to come out on top. Like I'll never be able to be successful in the situation because something is always lacking.
Something that has really helped is to pray in the morning; to ask Heavenly Father to be able to get done what he would have me do today.
Also if I get good one on one time with the kids I feel happy.
I've been "trying" to go running in the morning before they wake up so I get some "me time" in.
I use oils to help with the anxiety as well.

What have you guys found to help deal with your everyday crazy life?? Like I know we're supposed to "dance in the rain" haha but sometimes you just can't!

P.S. We have a garden! I've always wanted to be a garden family! I kind of doubted we would because it takes effort and time and stuff but hey look at us! 

P.S.S.- Graham, Maxwell and Sadie's birthdays are next week!! Any ideas on how to have a giant birthday party for really inexpensive that makes each child feel loved and special? Let me know all your ideas!


  1. Immediately thought of this video when I read this:
    Hang in there. Let us know if you need anything.

  2. I'm so sorry that you've been feeling anxious. I've dealt with anxiety myself off & on for the past 8 years (since I had Jackson). It is NOT fun! Love you!!! Let me know if you ever need to talk.
