I don’t know what it is, but I just can’t get my crap together as of late.

Do you ever feel like you’re just doing a haphazard (totally just used the thesaurus to find something that meant half @$$ed but was more family friendly) job of everything and a good job at nothing?

That’s me.

Campbell started preschool today.


If you’re his mom (and I realize none of you are), you can see the anxiety all over his face.

This time of year is hard for him. I wonder if he needs more sunlight or vitamins or sleep or something. Or, maybe that’s just how Asperger’s rolls.

Lucky for me, this guy takes a nap during preschool.


I’m thinking 2 hours of peace and quiet 3 times a week could be just what I need to undo my flakey funk.

I’ve got BIG plans to answer emails tomorrow.


I’m going to take a nap.

Please follow and like us:

    Happy First Day of School! I'm just loving the Chicago Bulls tee! And the hair!!

  2. You kids are so adorable! Good luck getting through the funk. Let me know how you do it, cause it seems I'm always ending up back there.

  3. How fun! I have 2 boys that are about the same age and my oldest is at his first day of preschool right now! Your boys are darling! Maybe the "funk" you are in is just a need for some rest and some "me time". You are amazing!

  4. Zack Family says:

  11. Kristine Robinson says:

    First of all, love those boys! Second of all, I am glad I'm not the only one. I feel so out of it – can't get anything done. doesn't help when there are tests galore in these stupid classes of mine. Oops, I mean wonderful, knowledge-filled classes (attitude is key, right?)

    Give Campbell a big hug and kiss for me. And Benny, too!

  12. I couldn't have worded it better myself! I for sure feel like I can't get my act together. I thought it would get better when school started, but it just got worse. Good Luck! I hope your nap helped. :)

  13. While Mr.Onesock Tugs My Apron Strings says:

    OMGosh! So cute! I feel ya. I've felt like that a lot lately!

  14. Oh those boys are too cute. And man any type of change in the slightest bit for my kiddo is super tough (yep, its an Aspie thing)

    I feel ya on the funk.

  15. I've been feeling the same way lately. Totally overwhelmed with no end in sight. It's been ages since I've actually had tome to make anything. Hopefully life will turn up for both of us. Soon. :)

  16. I chalk some of it up to sheer fatigue and major-summertime burn-out. At least that's what I'm hoping my diagnosis is, because to everything you just said: Amen sister.

  17. ringmaster says:

    i am feeling the same way also! my boys start next monday! the oldest almost 10 has asperger's and gets the same way! luckily the teacher let us come check out the classroom and where his desk is!

  18. Cole's Corner says:

    What a handsome little fella!

  19. Meghan, Carson and the Kiddos says:

    Your boys are so super cute! My little guy sleeps while my oldest is at pre-school also. Best two hours ever!

  20. I hear ya. It will get better for you both once school becomes normal again after a break.

  21. Life in Rehab says:

    Finally got the Aspergers thing on paper, eh? I had a feeling. Mine's 19 and in college and a partner in a film production company. He graduated high school with straight A's and a full scholarship. Relax. It gets easier.

    Plus he uses a drill ;)
