In Six Words, What Are You Tired Of?

ocean_waves-wallpaper-1680x1050-hiWell, I’ll be honest. I’m tired. I’m tired of trying, of problems, of sleepless nights, of my own pep talks, of worrying about ending a question with a preposition, of too much and too little.

I know I’m not the only one who’s tired. So, I’d love to hear from you: What you tired of? And, just to add a little fun, let’s share our weary in six words, like this:

I’m tired of the constant effort.

Please share your six-word description of your weariness in our comments section, below. I’ll choose a random winner on Wednesday to receive our “Me Time” Pack. (Our Me Time Pack features four eBooks which help you take care of you. Take Time helps you set personal goals; My Caregiving Journal prompts you to write it out; The Caregiving Years gives you permission for me time; and 2012 Anthology and its caregiving stories give you a great break.)

    What am I tired of?
    Not remembering that Dad can’t remember!

    (An explanation:
    When I forget this simple fact, I often
    say/do things that just lead to more frustration
    and fatigue for both of us. It’s amazingly freeing
    to stop reminding and explaining and just be
    with him right where he is at that moment.)
