Hard Work

Blogging is hard work when you're busy.

And I've been busy, but have that feeling that I have nothing to show for it. It's just the business (busyness) of life.

We had a birthday party for M on Sunday- it was a great party but it ate up the whole day which is significant when you work full time. That is my day for errands, catching up on stuff, etc. So I feel like I have been playing catch up all week.

And not just at home. The same thing is going on at work. The quarter ends this Friday so every teacher is giving tests and I just feel so overwhelmed. I HATE GRADES!! I know I am not supposed to say that, being a teacher and all, but I do. I REALLY DO. But that's a soapbox for another time.

I spoke to a friend last night who literally lives about 10 houses away and we could not figure out any time to talk/get together. Doesn't that mean we are too busy?

Plus, the husband is SICK. And you know what that means. I feel like I've been a single parent for the last 2 and 1/2 days. Except he DID make dinner last night so I'm not completely alone. But I have been running around exhausted taking the kids places (swimming, gymnastics) that by 7 o'clock I am seriously worn out.

I'm just whining. But I need to. I am tired of rushing everywhere. I am not naturally a fast moving person (think: turtle) but I have learned how to move fast and use my time effectively since I have had kids. But it really wears me down. I don't like to rush or squeeze things in, just so I can get everything done. I get stressed-I don't know how people do it and NOT get stressed. If there is a secret I'd like to know it.

Anybody know any?

Hmmm... drugs. Lots and lots of drugs. Of many different varieties. Mix and match if you'd like!

Seriously, there is no replacement for team effort, and I am sorry I am out of commission with this sickness. I want it gone, and I want it now, I want it gone and I don't care how.

Stay tough, and I'll be better before long and will be pulling my 25% again in no time at all. ;)

I don't do any weeknight activities.
I'd really like to, but I know that it's just too much. So Shana doesn't get gymnastics. I feel bad but she'll survive.
I'm planning on winter Sunday swimming lessons.

between homework and dinner/showers etc at night, it would just be too much for me to do weeknight lessons.

Give it a try-JUST SAY NO!

My husband is also sick, and I have been a single parent for about 2 and 1/2 weeks and now i think I may have the flu. Just gotta let something go and not feel guilty about it.
