Still here. Things have just been nutzoid around here. I feel like every time I turn around my life is in upheaval. This month has just been over the top. My family's financial situation has changed drastically. DH and I moved in two friends into the back apartment to help with those financial issues, and get the friends out of bad living situations. DD's schedule has been maddening. For instance, her ballet class is officially over but this week we have 4 evenings we have to dedicate to dance because of rehearsals and performances. There's 3 huge projects that we have not completed for the summer -- re-building the pop-up camper, getting things ready for the farmers market, and having that garage sale. Plus, ever since my birthday (May 1) my relationship with my parents is on the rocks. I'm now 8 months pregnant, and that isn't helping anything. Thinking about how life will change even more with the new baby is stressing me out. I'm so ready to have him, but that thought alone is eating me away with guilt, and sucking any joy out of the last few weeks of my pregnancy. And, it's not like there's a whole lot of joy around this part of the pregnancy to spread around anyway. Mostly I'm just whining about how hard it is to maintain anything being so huge and tired all the time, and how done with this pregnancy I am. At this point though, how can I be ready to have this baby when things are so out of whack? Ugh. Can I just have a reset button? I was riding high all the way through April, and now at the end of May everything is SO different.
Sorry for the rant. I really just haven't even been able to get all of it out. It seems like I've just been bouncing from one issue to the next without even having the time to reflect on each individual situation.
Catching up quickly from the last couple of weeks:
Everyone - Hope you all had a great mother's day!
Mommy2Austin - Hope that week at your dad's place was a welcome vacation from life at home, and that your oldest had a wonderful birthday.
Ian'smommaya - That's so cool about your aromatherapy line.
Vydalea - That birthday cake for Z sounded delicious!
Wolfcat - Crazy situation with your DB! I hope everything resolves smoothly and that he receives some help. On the upside, that pagan festival sounds like it was a FANTASTIC experience.
Valerie.QC - I'm sorry you had to attend those funerals. I hope the logistics ended up working out. Let us know how the homeschool convention goes. I've heard that Widcraft is super fun. Is your DD enjoying it? Hope your meetup with DD1 went well too.
Maiasaura - So glad about M's job going pretty well, and that you got to see him finally! I'm sorry DS gave caregiver a hard time. Do you think it was in anyway due to him being sick before you left?
Witchygrrl - That birthday dinner sounded awesome... MmmmMMM Steak! Sorry about your MIL "helping" with your travel plans. Have you been on that vacation yet? How was it?
Indigo73 - I think that's neat that you still help out the little league team even when your LO is not on the team anymore.
Revolting - I'm so sorry for your loss. If keeping busy is helping then keep on keeping on. I wish you peace.
3XMama - That's awesome that your dad is doing well enough to drive. I hope he keeps on improving! :)
