It's been one of THOSE weeks...

We returned from Camping with more laundry than I have ever seen (well, maybe when we returned from China, but I swear, I brought less clothes, then!) The amount of work it takes just to get up, dressed, kids ready, fed, out the door to get to work by 9:00 to then start work is overwhelming...And I have passed into a new place in my life. In my old life I could get them to school and stand around with the other parents and say "Whew, we barely made it out the door this morning, and I am so tired". In this life, I can't be late and I have to open the door with a smiling face and say "Good Morning!". And pretend that it has been. I am so tired when we get home at 1:00, it is all I can do to stay awake...And then there is the laundry. It's still there. I know many people do this every day, for 8 hours, and God bless you. My babysitter quit today. Something about needing a work visa. She gave no notice. It is just as well, She wasn't very reliable and left the house a mess. And I need to find a different one for fall because of my new work hours. I just wasn't ready to deal with it just yet. Tomorrow I am going to the Doctor to get some blood tests to see why I have been feeling so tired and to check for the Kidney disease the my sister has. Think good thoughts for me that I don't have it. I'll be back to my cheerful(HA) self tomorrow, I promise.

I really, really hope you don't have it(really). It kind of sucks. I'm praying for good news from the blood tests.

Yikes, I'm sending HUGE good thoughts and will be checking back here every 10 minutes to hear good news. Take care of yourself!

The work thing and the laundry thing kill me too. How exactly is it all supposed to get done? If you figure it out, drop me a line.
