Ugh, I SO need the running around screaming smilee right now! I'm right there in the car with you, ladies, and don't look now, but I think it may be going over the cliff...
DH and I both sing in a local choir--usually only one of us sings a concert, so the other one is home with the kids, but this time, for grins and giggles, we both decided to sing. Up until this week, it hasn't been too bad--the kids come with us to rehearsal, and there is a babysitter on site, who they enjoy. Well, now we are into concert week, with a late rehearsal last Sunday, a dress rehearsal Tuesday night, another one tomorrow night, and concerts Sat. and Sun. This has now turned into a complete disaster, with different babysitters each time, the kids up late almost every night, so therefore they are late waking up in the morning, making me late to work almost every day this week...
Then, speaking of work, it is still nuts and getting worse. Today I spent an hour sending out a message to a group of employees, only to find out that it contained an incorrect date in it. I immediately began getting innundated with messages from people saying "You know 6/6 is a Sunday, right?" Yah, thanks for pointing that out, since OUT OF SIX PEOPLE WHO REVIEWED THIS MESSAGE, NOBODY LOOKED AT A D*MN CALENDAR!
So I had to resend the message. Let's hear it for working smarter and better, folks!
Meanwhile, in other news, we have no food in the house, because I haven't had time to go shopping, I'm trying to get ready to go on vacation next week (a camping trip! Great! More work! Why couldn't I have picked a nice, all-amenities spa for a week?), the house is beyond the beyond in terms of messiness, the baby has two year molars coming in AND a yeast infection, my older daughter is having a terrible time with allergies (we are on our second anti-histimine), DH was diagnosed with sleep apnea...BUT, I know, it could be worse!
How about a little "Energizer Mommy" smilee? "She just goes on, and on, and on..."
Hang in there, ladies! You all sound like you are doing an amazing job with everything you do, and my hat is off to all of you!
FWIW, Nate, there are worse places than CT (this coming from the person who lives in NJ, so take that with a grain of salt...).
