it's been a stressful month.

I'm trying really hard to not throw myself a pity party...but it's hard today.

I'm also trying to just recount all the blessings I have right now, too. But again, sometimes, do you ever just get down and feel like crying? I'm there. Right now.

This past month {and a few weeks ahead of that} we've been dealing with my jeep.  It's not very old and doesn't have many miles on it, but once the dealership warranty ran out, we've had major, costly problems and taking it in and out of the shop for about 5 weeks. Thankfully it is now *hopefully* fixed, but not without a LOT of cost to us that we really didn't have.

He's been prepping for a pretty major certification/test for the past year. But this month, he's been cramming hard every night when he gets home from work and usually on Saturdays and Sundays.  This weekend he'll be traveling to go take the test.  We'll both be glad when it's over, for things to get back to somewhat normal and him being less stressed, and for us to actually have some time together rather than saying Goodnight.  He's also been stressed about some other things I can't say on the blog right now...but let's just say, it's been a long month.  Also, the test is really expensive {as was this program} and we thought his work was going to pay for it - well they didn't. So that's been hard to do right now as well.

Ya'll know the saga of the crib. He said, she said crap I've been dealing with with the people from the store. We still don't have the corrected crib.  Well, just found out the only chair I've wanted this entire time has been ordered for 2 weeks {they told us it would take 4-6 weeks to get in} is now out of stock with no date in mind to restock it. It's from the actual company, so it doesn't matter where I order it from. I'm not getting it.  I admit we waited a little late to order it, but, with all the extra expenses we've had this summer, we thought we were being responsible and waiting until we could re-save up the money to order the chair and pay it in full, as to not add any more to the credit card bill. So, looks like I got punished for being mindful. :( Anyways, I don't know what to do at this point. I don't want another chair or design. I wanted that one. We've been waiting to paint one wall of the nursery to match the chair color and damask design.

I still don't have a long-term sub.  I can't move into my classroom without someone getting the boxes down from high shelves that I can't lift, and my school closes before my husband or Dad get off work. So not quite sure how I'm going to work on my classroom.

Ok, if you've made it this far in my post, I'm sorry. :( I just needed to vent. 

Anyways, I know things don't revolve around money, but it's much easier for people that have extra money to say that.  I wish I wasn't so upset over the chair, but I am. I know it's bad to be upset over something materialistic, but I am.  So, now I'm off to make a mental list of all the things I should be focusing on; like the health of my family, my friends, my baby...


  1. Praying for you and Brian - hopeful that things will begin to look up soon!

  2. I totally get it. It is okay to cry and have your moment! You have a lot going on.
    Is there a janitor at your school during the day? Maybe another teacher there that could help you get the boxes down? I know you are stressed, but it really will all work out. I am not sure if this is what you want to hear, but once that sweet girl arrives the chair and the crib and all the other will be a distant memory! I do hope all goes well with Brian's test and such. You will get through this.

  3. I've had days/weeks like this too. I know everything will work out. Saying a few prayers for you.

  4. Praying for you Megan! I totally understand about the chair. Once we get something in our head we must have it:) Chris and I have had a tough month financially too, so please know your not alone. But great job trying to focus on the positives!

  5. It is okay to vent! I'm sorry things aren't the best right now, I'll be praying for you! I turn to this verse whenever I am feeling stressed.......... hopefully it will bring you comfort, too!

    When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and rescues them from all their troubles. (Psalm 34:17)

  6. Oh I'm so sorry to hear that you're having a hard month. Being pregnant is hard in itself, especially towards the end. I hope everything gets easier for you and your little family :)
