It's been a crazy week. I feel like I say that a lot. I do, don't I? Well - it HAS been and the kicker is, it's only half way through. Half way. That just feels like the Universe is being mean. *sigh* (But then there is the whole "wishing my life away" which I absolutely do not want to do. Time is going fast enough, thankyouverymuch.)
Regular every day stuff plus medical appointments (don't get me started), plus PTO stuff, plus holiday stuff, plus...plus...plus. I am feeling very much like I haven't sat down to relax in days. Even my sleep is filled with anxiety over all I have on my plate right now.
You know what I really, really want to do? No - it's not help the kids hang their bazillion Disneyland photos all over their walls (though I am doing that.....not sure whose idea that was. I'm thinking photos, neatly presented in a photo album, would have been the way to go. Since that ship sailed, I'm thinking Dakota helping to remove the bazillion photos when the time comes (you know, *before* the tape degrades and leaves residue on the walls) would be good. (Yep - that's a BIG hint. I know you are reading this. *grin*). No - it's not making dinner (which I have to come up with soon). Nope - not even folding the laundry that is begging for attention. Guess again...it's not even breaking up the fight that is erupting over the roll of tape for hanging photos.
What I would like to do, more than anything right now, is pull out some comfy winter pajamas, curl up with a couple body pillows under my nice fluffy comforter and flip on the TV. Tune out the world, my responsibilities and my worries.
I said it is what I would LIKE to do....sadly, it isn't even close to what I am GOING to do. Nope - that would be taking care of the various needs and desires of my children, laundry, dinner, dishes, straightening, etc. The list is long. It always is.
And I'm tired. I always am. :) I've been tired since 2001 when the stick changed colors to show Kelton was on his way and there is no sign of that changing.
Nor would I want it to change....truth be told.
