S to the T...

r-e-ss-ed!

That's me.

I feel like there are a million and one things going on around here, and I am doing my best not to let it get to me. But there has been so many events to keep up with, sick kids to be patient with, decisions to make, fighting over stupid things, crying over more stupid things, potty-training nightmares, a few fun times, many more blah times- you name it! As Kimba from A Soft Place To Land so perfectly put it: Witchy Wifey and Monster Mommy have been hanging out at our house these past couple of weeks... I hate when those two show up and cling to the door frame when I try to shove them out of the house. I feel like they just stick around and breathe down my neck and make me feel miserable about all that I have to do...

Tomorrow starts my teeth transformation- I went in wanting some pretty shiny veneers- and I came out needed 2 root canal re-dos and a million and one other things to be fixed by some specialist before my dentist will even speak to me. Fun, fun...Good times. I have a job interview on Tuesday morning, which I hope goes well and I'm not drooling all over the place from the previous day's dental adventure. I have to meet with my college advisor to see if any of the classes I took at UT will transfer so I can get into the nursing program sometime in the next 15 years. I have two 4-hour training sessions to finish writing, power-pointing and notebook-making in the next 2 weeks. We are house-hunting and driving all over north Texas trying to find the neighborhood we will live in from now until our precious children leave the nest. No stress there. What it all boils down to is we just want to get settled, and actually start our lives on a better track- one with more fun and less stress. Something along these lines:

Does such a life exist?

I know, I know... I just need to Get. Over. It. before my children quit hugging me and my husband quits speaking to me. I'm in a funk people. I feel like I need a big hug and a good shove to get this show on the road. (sigh)
