I feel like I am on major overload right now and don't know how to slow down. This week has been filled with appts. for the kids. My mom is in the psychiatric hospital (although I am very detached about that-has happened often over the years and she is a couple of hours away), my students are getting 5th gradeitis, this weekend I'm working (just Sat. morning), the kids want to see Shrek 3, a good friend is having a housewarming party (for which I'll want to get a small gift for which means a trip to the store), easy child is getting recognized at an award ceremony for African Americans, the lawn needs to be mowed, and next week difficult child has a psychiatrist appointment and a therapist appointment. I'm not sure but easy child might have an therapist appointment. too. Did I mention that I'm starting to work on report cards right now too? Oh and I'm helping to plan a combination wedding/baby shower (two different people-one shower) with people at work. Oh yeah-I also volunteered to pick up gift certificates for those leaving at the end of the school year. None of this is really all that major-I'm used to being busy -I know we all are busy-but for some reason right now I just want to runaway-far away! Part of it, I'm sure, is when I start getting this busy I don't get in my workouts which makes me not too happy and I start not eating so well which also isn't a good thing. I must be getting old because there was a time that no matter what I got in my workouts even if it meant going to the club at 3:30 in the morning. Ok sorry for the poor me vent-the good news is there is only 24 days of school left after tomorrow and a slower pace will hopefully ensue (that is, of course, if I survive til then)! Thanks for listening.
