I'm back...but barely

Whew...what a whirlwind number of days.

Drove all night Thursday night, to get to Sequim by 1:00 Friday. Picked up U-Haul...Drove to Grandma's. How odd it was to be there without her.

Ticked off cousin's friend...long story...this will be an entirely different blog post when I can think.

Made dump runs and had entire house packed by 4:00 pm on Saturday. Took kids swimming at the hotel pool and went to dinner.

Got up Sunday morning...drove all day...was told that I haven't been a very good friend (not by hubby)...crashed at a hotel....got up today...drove all day...picked up car from dealer (was getting serviced)...raced 20 miles up the hill to get hubby's paycheck...raced 18 miles back down the hill to get to the bank before they closed...was stopped and turned around as the road was closed because of a fire...had to turn around and head home. Logged in to computer to complete my Employment Practices Liability exam...did not pass...wanted to cry...feeling a lot tired and a little overwhelmed by it all.

MUST. BREATHE!!

I'll be back in calmer form tomorrow. I just couldn't go another day without saying HI to all.

By the way, my son is still up in Washington with Mom and Nurse sister. Look at what I traded him in for this week. Yep...it's the face only a mother (or loving aunt and uncle) can love.

Hey...nice trade!!

Melissa said...

I'm liking the trade. Can you get both? :)

Debbie said...

study for a test in 20 minute intervals, interrupting yourself to get up stretch and drink water.

Reason: anything interrupted is better retained.

we often loose focus when we have only a 3% drop in hydration.

blood settles in bottom and feet, so we cannot focus as well unless we stretch and get it moving again.

Hang in there, you will overcome!
