As you can see, this has been an exhausting week! I have worked over 50 hours this week. I am determined to have enough money for the girls to go to High School. Yes! The summer is almost over!!! School is just a few days away. Actually 6 days, 12 hours and 15 minutes!! But, who's counting? LOL Are there any mothers out there who feel the same way? Feel free to comment!! My mothers guilt is already setting in. Atleast when my kids are in school I can catch up on my sleep! Also, I can get back to working on the book. It has been impossible to get anything done. See the picture below? This is how I have felt over the last few weeks! Can anyone relate??? Again...feel free to comment? I have been so overwhelmed that I had to stop everything! I couldn't even blog. So all of you out there who were wondering if I am still alive...YES!! I was just hiding! LOL Today, after working a few hours at Home Instead, I ran down to the computer in hopes to catch up on my blogging! This picture kept flashing before me! Has anybody ever felt this way?? Notice the look in my eyes and the panic in my face.....yes, and my hair!..Well, what can I say...It's been a long summer! The heat makes my hair frizz! LOL No seriously people...my hair looks much better when I'm not so tired! LOL I just want you all to know that I wasn't ignoring any of you..There are too many changes happening in my life. Please be patient with me? BTW Thanks for all the e-mails and phone calls! I can't believe even Karin called tonight! OH Man!! My daughter turned the ringer off!!!

Not only have I felt that way, I regularly feel that way. I wonder how much a flashing neon sign would be? $$
It seems from your post that there are a lot of folks who are having struggles. I ache knowing just how much turmoil the world is in, and what turmoil it puts into each heart and soul.
I have decided that while 'daughter' is having her surgery, I will spend those few hours in the hospital chapel...sounds like more folks than just me could use it.

Hey cutie!
This mom thing is wearing me out. Daughter seems to have things together now. She is only a greenish/yellow on her face now, the swelling has dissipated.
We had court today...argh!!! I don't think I would have been satisfied with any judgment, but this will have to do.
I really want to hear your voice...I will try and call tonight once the revolving dinner is over. ( we have the 2 lads for dinner tonight..they're helping quark do some yardwork) You home tonight?!?!?

Diana Joy said...

E-mail me when you get a minute? LOL
