I'm trying something new today.  I came across a blog that gives a prompt and asks you write for 5 minutes. So here goes...


Enough laundry.  Enough fighting and bickering and screaming.  Enough decisions.  Enough random toys strewn about everywhere.

I've had enough. And I imagine my kids have had enough too.  Enough crazy mama.  Enough "come here" and "go there."  Enough "eat this and not that."  Enough siblings.

I want less, not enough.  Enough! Enough packing lunches.  Enough waking up early.  Enough wiping butts.  Enough arguing.  Enough not listening.  I'm tired and I've had enough.  Is it ever enough?

Five minutes is up.  This was hard for me because I wanted to edit my thoughts.  And I wanted to edit my writing.  But the assignment calls for "no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking."  That is going to take more practice on my part because I failed miserably on that aspect.

And now I'm second-guessing what I wrote.  Wouldn't it be nice if instead of my ranting about "Enough!!!!" I wrote about how I have enough...enough support and love, enough food and shelter, enough of anything my family truly wants or needs.  Because all of that is true too.


  1. Oh mercy. I can so relate. Girl, you are not alone! :)

  2. Sometimes you just need to get it off your chest. And, isn't it nice to know you aren't the only one who feels this way? :)


Yeah! I love comments! Feel free to leave me one (or two or three).
But remember what your mama said..."If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
