I am really scattered, still, pulled in all directions and not sure how to cope well. I am coping, but not well. Okay, but still feeling the need for relief.

Good news: the doctor cleared my little girl on Monday, saying her ear/sinus infection is gone and everything looks good! Yay!
Bad news: the school called me yesterday to come pick her up because she felt sick and thought she might throw up.

So we missed dance and play time and I am once again stuck at home while the gorgeous weather passes me by. It is kind of depressing. I mean, of course I do love taking care of my kids, but I wish they were all healthy. The only 'me' time I get is the 2 1/2 hours of Kindergarten, 3 days a week when I am not volunteering in class, and usually I have some pressing thing to do or appointment to go to or else I spend that time training my dog (which is relaxing, usually, for me). I just hope she feels better soon.

I have my doctor appointment this morning, am very nervous about it and if I get an "all clear" I will feel a gazillion times better than I do with the possibility of another surgical procedure hanging over my head.

Sorry this post is kind of a bummer. Hopefully next week will be better.

Not a bummer at all... just a snapshot of today. Some days are better than others, and what matters is what we do with what comes. You are wonderful.

Sounds like life to me. :) My life is super hectic right now, as well, and I have just decided to do what I can do, and the rest will have to wait. Don't get me wrong...I have days when I scream and cry and want to pull my hair out (but I usually do it in the privacy of my room.) :) Those days are fewer and farther between now. If your load doesn't lighten up, you will find the capacity to deal with it more and more.

I hope you get more time to yourself, and that you can use it to find peace.

but don't you see that life isn't always a success story? Bummer days happen and you're dealing with them great I'm sure. Hope all turns out well!

Lynn, I feel you with all the stress. I was a single mother of 3 children and I know how hard it is to raise children on your own. You have almost no "me" time.

I wish you good news at the doctor's office. I know once you are "cleared." The weight will have lifted from your shoulders.

Hugs. Hang in there.

Simply put.. I want more. said...

I hate to say this, but this is what I needed to see. That I am not the only one being stretched to the limit with sick kids and beautiful weather passing by. And my plate of to do things over flowing.. I hope it gets better for ya soon! :)
