Wow, there must be something going on, a la mercury retrograde (though I know it isn't). I've just been feeling so disconnected, disorganized, disjointed, dis... whatever. Not grounded.
els, I'm glad today is better. For me, the difficulty is in the neverendingness of the needs. It doesn't have to be that there's anything spectacularly stressful happening, it's just that there is no moment "off".
Heath, I was so sad about people's reactions to our #3. The *important* people were happy, but most were lukewarm at best. One person actually said, "Well, it's still early, you could always miscarry." Wow, thanks!! I AM excited! Once I was visibly pregnant (about two hours later, if I remember) people warmed up, and now of course everyone thinks E is just the best baby ever... but hugs to ya. It was a real downer for me.
KK, I did come from NM. I've lived about a million places, though, so it's hard to keep track of me
: I'm surprised you remembered. NM will always have a special place in my heart, and will always be "home", if you know what I mean.
Oh, the other thought from my discombobulated brain - on those difficult days, the other thing that gets me is that *I* am the only person who's going to be able to fix it. If I lose it and get into a yelling match with my DD, chances are SHE isn't going to be the one to turn it around. So not only do I have to be the mom, I also have the be the adult. It's just a lot.
But it's an amazing thing we are all doing. A series of amazing things.
