It’s only Tuesday. It’s been a very long week.

My mom is still in the hospital (did I tell you about that? She went in Saturday night with severe abdominal pain…as of this moment, they still don’t know for sure what the pain is being caused by). Needless to say, she’s a bit frustrated and depressed and basically done with being in the hospital. I spent all day there yesterday, but was unable to go today (ironically, this is the day she normally comes to spend the day with Preston so that I can go to work!).

At about 5:30 she was threatening to sign herself out, no diagnosis, no treatment plan, since she hadn’t talked to a doctor or had her additional tests done all day. Either my brother and I speaking to her or her threats that caused a test to get scheduled…for midnight, but at least scheduled, kept her in there for at least tonight. I sure hope they find something!

In the meantime, I haven’t been to work since last week (even though I have worked from home, I was kind of getting used to being IN the office!). Bills are piling up (of course), and I’m drowning in laundry and dishes and clutter (see previous post) and parenting and daughtering and general messiness. I need to get clothes for Matt to wear to his concert (TOMORROW), supplies for the office, put away laundry, go see my mom, make lunches…blah blah blah blah.


Tonight I get to sit on my freshly sheeted bed and watch Glee with Neil Patrick Harris (um, not WITH him, but wouldn’t THAT be the freaking bomb!), my kids snug in their beds (one sleeping and one reading, as usual). Tomorrow the sun is supposed to make an appearance (did I mention it’s been cloudy/rainy for 3 days?!). I’m making a plan to get rid of mucho stuff, which I know will make a huge difference. I’ve (almost) got a paint color picked out for the kitchen and I might even get a chance to ride my bike again soon!

So for all of my whining, I know it’s not that big of a deal. Life moves on – this week is a bumpy one, but it could be far worse. Laundry and dishes aren’t going anywhere (but damn, I wish they would!).

Deep breath.

Tomorrow is another day. *hopefully a lot freaking better*

O no!!! Prayers are on the way!! And you wonder why you are overwhelmed!! Ever since the days of school projects I too would get paralyzed. Like when there’s too much to do I do nothing. I’m still like this. I’m sending hugs support and prayers for you and you mom. And I am here for you anytime and always!!

Praying for you too. My mom just got out of the hospital a couple of weeks ago. It’s just exhausting mentally, physically and emotionally. Take care of yourself, girl.
