What's Wrong? What's Not!

I'm a self confessed 40-something year old teenager.

And I'm having a major teenage style melt down.

Do you have those days where everything feels wrong? I mean EVERYTHING?!

This is what is running through my head right now...

My husband hates me
My kids are too loud
I'm too fat
I'm too old
The doctor said I have high blood pressure
I hate exercising
My house sucks
My blog sucks
My shop sucks
I'm a terrible housekeeper
I have no space to call my own
I have to work on Friday for the first time in 7 1/2 years
I'm stressed
I'm anxious
I'm a cranky cow

And then my 6 year old boy comes out with a present for me.
A piece of paper that just happened to rip into the shape of a heart.
What a darling boy.

Of course everything is not really that bad. I'm just putting a mega-sized negative spin on my life at the moment.  It won't last.  I will return to normal soon (whatever normal is).  I know this because I've been doing it for 40 'something' years.

Please tell me I'm not the only one that has days like these.


  1. ummm, try multiple days like these!
    Days when all i can think of is how fat i am and how tired i am, days when i think life isnt fair, and days when i curse at my husband more than gordan ramsey curses in the kitchen...
    I dont think we would be who we are, nor appreciate the small but sentimental things in life if we didnt have days like these...
    I think so long as those days dont outweigh the good days - then you are fine....
    But for now massive squishy soul warming *HUGS*

  2. You're not the only one who has days like these. Trust me. I'm the girl who cries because I burnt my toast and then a bird shat on my car.

    It's totally normal and OK to feel down once in a while, but try not to beat yourself up too much :) Your kids are gorgeous, your blog does NOT suck and your shop does NOT suck!

    I'm a naturally negative person (which I hate to admit) and I'm in the process of trying to reverse the way that I view things. It's so so so so hard, but I can actually feel my stress and anxiety lift off my shoulders when I eventually manage to flip my thought patterns and find something to smile about.

    You're absolutely not alone xxx

  3. I read, I nodded, I agreed. Yes I have many days like this. M.A.N.Y

    It will pass. just hold on to that thought xxx

  4. Your not alone lovely! i had a meltdown cause the washing machine man didnt turn up and the postman threw my mail in the mud!
    we all have days like these trust me!
    hope things get better soon!
    ps your blog is fine so is your house im sure, and your NOT fat, and you Will kick ass at school.
    Mwahh xx

  5. No you aren't alone darling. In fact I'm having one of those moments right now, and hence why I was drawn to click on your tweet link! Hang onto the heart-shaped piece of paper. We all have good days and bad days. xx

  6. Yeah, you just saw my tweet. We're having one of those days too. Give me strength!

  7. I have heaps of those kind of days as well so your not alone but with loving family and friends (both in real life & twitter/blog land) I get through it & so will you.
    (((( Hugs ))))

  8. Oh yeah. I certainly do. Had one yesterday - felt like throwing myself on the floor, kicking and screaming a tantrum like my two-year-old.

    Hope you're feeling better. xx

  9. Hell yeah I have many many days like this.... Thea I admire you so much, the way you always write so eloquently. I can never seem to put my feelings and emotions in to words the way you do. I hope tomorrow is a better day for you!

  10. Hey lovely, why just last week I had a complete melt down because I am scared about going back to make-up & being unemployed, my hair was sticky, my eyes were puffy, I'm sure I found some new wrinkles and I got a bunch of spots. Tres awesome. You're not alone at all. x

  11. Yup - we all have days like that. At least you know it'll get better..and it will! xx

  12. That could have been my blog post . . .if I weren't so busy pretending to be cheery all the time.

    Things will get better. Somehow they always do.

  13. Life - it's a mixed blessing. Thank goodness for the bright spots that put it all back into perspective! I enjoy your blog - it doesn't suck!

  14. Oh every single day. I actually don't think we are human (or sane) if we don't! Cause life does suck sometimes.
    I only save my sanity by taking a few moments every day to breathe, and think of a few things that I do love or that I don't have to worry about. It can be as simple as a cuddle with my kids or the kitten, watching a beautiful sunset, feeding the possum that lives in the tree outside our house. This week it's also been being grateful that despite the rain and the fact that I'm broke, we have food to eat, a roof over our heads, and we are warm and (mostly) dry. Even if the house does look like a bomb site! Tread carefully and know you are never alone. xo

  15. You are all wonderful and your comments cheered me up no end!
    Thanks lovely ladies!! xxx


Just one little comment will make my day.
