    gcvmom Here we go again!

    Today? Okay, lately.

    I KNOW there's lots to do. I look around me and want it done. Just can't seem to get started.

    Maybe I need to make a list... sometimes that helps.

    Just too much going on in my head...
    The house is a MESS
    IEP's
    Meetings at school
    difficult child 1's grades
    difficult child 2's grades
    Upcoming neuropsychologist evaluations
    husband still sleeping too much
    husband needing higher medication levels but me not able to just come out and tell him I think he's crazy because then he'd think I'M crazy...
    Need to do our taxes
    Finding an affordable dress for bro's upcoming wedding
    Am I going to the wedding?
    The house is a MESS
    sister in law #3's birthday next week
    sister in law #2's birthday two weeks later
    What are we doing for Easter?
    The bridal shower
    easy child's birthday two weeks after that
    The house is a MESS
    The potential eruption when easy child realizes she's going to a new school next year...
    More layoffs coming at husband's company...
    Will he be spared again?
    Will we ever crawl out of debt?
    Getting difficult child 1 registered for highschool
    difficult child 2's middle school tour(s) and registering him
    Reordering everyone's medications...
    Dentist appointments
    psychiatrist appointments
    Getting difficult child 1 signed up for Crohn's camp...
    Did I mention our TAXES?
    And that my house is a MESS?

    I think, I will have another cup of coffee and get ready to go help at school.

    And then maybe I'll vaccuum...

    But it's SO beautiful outside today... perfect for lounging on a chair and watching the chickens scratch in the dirt...

    Where's someone to kick my beehind into gear when I need them? :laugh:

    :rofl:

    LOVE the cheer! :D

    To add to my angst, I mis-negotiated a turn in the parkinglot of the grocery store just a little bit ago... and got the truck hung up on a friggin' ROCK. Lots of nice old men in this town, though. Every one of them within a quarter-mile stopped to give me advice on how to unstick myself. Which actually only succeeded in hanging me higher and dryer and nearly wrecking my muffler.

    Thank goodness for Autoclub! The tow truck driver came out and used his jack and some 4x4's to help leverage me out of my embarassing situation (was ready to smack the next looky-loo that came by to tell me "Did you know you're stuck on a rock?" -- "NO! REALLY?! I thought this was a parking spot! Boy am I EMBARRASSED!")

    It's St. Paddy's day, and I think I should've started drinking a long time ago...:st_patrick:

    Rofl laughing at this thread! Star-excellent cheer!!


    Gvcmom-My advice, of course, would have been to take a nap but then again I'm the queen of naps! So, did you get motivated or just relax today?

    I got a half-a$$ed motivation, I guess... vaccuumed part of the LR and part of the DR. Then I did some paperwork. Then I sat and watched the chickens for a bit (and collected egg #2). Then I picked kids up from school. Then I started to inventory part of our movie collection (because husband is constantly buying stuff we already have and says he can't remember).

    Then I poured a glass of wine and started to make dinner (it's still cooking).

    I need to get my stuff together for the meeting difficult child 1's school psychologist tomorrow... so I s'pose that's all I'll get around to tomorrow morning...

    The toilets are calling me... I can hear them. Guess I better squirt some cleaner in there soon before they start looking for me...
