It's just one of them days...

"That a girl goes through
When I'm angry inside
Don't wanna take it out on you
Just one of them things
Don't take it personal
I just wanna be all alone
And you think i treat you wrong"

So my life is actually pretty good right now but every once in awhile I run into one of "those" days.  Today happened to be that day.  For some reason I felt like all of the problems and issues that are surrounding my life needed to be dealt with TODAY!  I was so focused on all of the problems that I needed to solve that I decided to forget them all and clean =)

As I started cleaning our room I realized that we had so much stuff and that we didn't need it all.  So, I started packing bags to take to the D.I. (Deseret Industries...a second hand store equivalent to the Salvation Army but waaaaayyyyyyyy better! LOL!)  By the time I loaded up my van I had 9 HUGE bags of stuff to take.  I'm still not done yet and if Will finds out that I packed four of his drawers, he'll probably be a LITTLE UPSET...oh well!

Throughout the whole day I've been thinking about where I'm at in my life and I have to say that I got a little disappointed.  I mean, I'm 31 years old and have nothing to show for it.  Seriously?!  Where has my life gone?  What have I done with the past 31 years?  I was so disappointed and upset that "one of them days" just got worse.  Boy, if I hadn't been dragging my feet yet, I was now.  I don't know how else to explain it except that I felt like a...

Then I got to thinking!  I had some accomplishments, didn't I?  Then I thought back to some of the highlights of my life.  I graduated from high school, attended some college, went on a LDS church mission for 18 months, returned home honorably, married my love in the temple, have two wonderful & beautiful children and am a working mom!  Those are pretty admirable accomplishments...I think =)
Anyway, my day seemed to get a little better as the night went on and then it hit me...I've got to have "one of them days" every once in awhile so that I can truly appreciate the things that I have now.  Sure life will be frustrating at times but that's the way it is.  Like the old saying goes....

 and keep in mind...if you're feeling frustrated or down....
