getting a grip

Here I go- desperately trying to get a grasp on reality, one blog at a time. Bear with me people... it's a work in progress.

The constant state of frustration, treading if you will... continues. I have company coming, Holidays coming, tests coming, bills coming. Not really prepared for any part or portion of them... so here I sit, banging away on the keyboard.

Productive Super Mom... riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

Over tired, under-appreciated, super slow moving, only getting half a clue. On a good day.

It would be nice to have a visit from the lottery fairy, a lot of my angst could be reduced with a little less stress of the fundage.

That and a dedicated crew of home improvement specialists, maids, cooks, laundress', nannies... massage therapists...Oh crap. That is MY job.


Without the fairies and the multitudes of servants... I guess I should pry my ampleness away from the screen and get on it. But it's so nice here...

LONGEST week evah....

Ok, Monday was an Off Day... no school, for me OR the kids.

Translation... I had ALL the kids, ALL day, ALL by myself. After a weekend of them being poopy-heads (as JJ so lovingly refers to them.)

I was (and still seem to be) on the OMG I HAVE A TEST mindset.

Translation... NO SLEEP. Even less than normal. Whatever normal is. Tuesday was FREAK OUT, the test is TOMORROW!! day- always a fun and pleasant experience for all concerned.

Quit laughing. I was TRYING to be sarcastic!

Wednesday- THE TEST.

Wednesday Night... slight, YES SLIGHT!! anxiety issues over how I did on the test.

Today ... I got the results- 81% not too shabby... for all the early morning morning hours, I had BETTER have gotten a B!!

So in celebration of my B... I did a whole lotta nothing. I came home, sat on the couch and ate bon-bons. Not really- but my posterior did get a work out, and I may have even shut my eyes- for a few consecutive moments.

Did you hear that? A few moments, eyes closed... Thats more sleep than I have gotten in the past 3 weeks!!!

But it's only Thursday. There is still a whole 'nother day in week. For a short one, this seems to have gone on and on and on.... kinda like this post.

what's going on??

I think I have been off on my own little planet- or lost under laundry- for a while. Something funky, this way comes.

I have been burning the midnight oil...studying for an anatomy test. Uggggh. And while I have been straining the brain... the kids have all gone Loopy.

Loopy HOW you might ask? I don't know... every manner, courtesy, normal human thought and or reaction have mysteriously EVAPORATED from their collective consciousness.

What do you mean I am supposed to brush my hair (wear clean clothes, put a coat on in 25 degree weather...) before school?

But I was only playing in the busy street ONCE.

Ya know, when you start telling your mom the way things are going to be... IS JUST WRONG. And boy-o, now that I can actually take a nap and sleep for more than an hour or two...(hopefully) watch it monkees.

YOU, my pretties... are on notice.

Right after my nap. GGGggrrrrrrr.
