Dum-de-dum-dum-DUH *edited*

< freakout >

My brain is mush.

I'm seriously overwhelmed. There aren't enough hours in the day, and my work life is getting in the way of my personal life.

I'm more than a little concerned about Z-man, who seems to have lost his appetite since his return from college and has taken to sleeping on the couch downstairs at night instead of in his room.

The Roo-girl has about a zillion places to be between now and graduation, and I have no real way to get her there (working full-time SUCKS).

*Edited to add: Thank you for your suggestion of having Z-man take Roo to her various "places." Unfortunately, his Z-ness does not drive. He has visual issues that make him scary on the road, and we haven't solved it yet.*

I should have made an appointment to see my eye doctor to reorder my contacts about TWO MONTHS AGO.

I am having an attack of ostrichism.

Can I go back to bed now?

I hope life slows down to a more enjoyable pace for you soon. Can Z-Man take Roo to the places she needs to go? Maybe having something to do would help him. How's he doing on vitamins and general nutrition? I know he's a big boy, but sometimes they have to be nagged to take care of themselves properly. Make sure he's getting plenty of vitamin B. Fresh air and exercise can help too--and having something to keep him busy. I don't remember whether you said he's on any meds. If so, is he taking them like he should? Praying here.

Oh man, you'll do it. You're super mom!!!!

Jenni has a good idea....get Z-man off the couch and in the driver's seat!!!!

First your feet are *shudders* bloody stumps and then your brain is *dry-heaves* mush??


'The hell are you trying to do to me?

Yep, incorporate Z-Man into family life. (He might be more amenable, if Roo asked him herself.) And BREATHE. It will be OK soon.

I hope things calm down a bit for you.

Take a breath. You sound so highly stressed for a short work week. You'll get it all done. With grace and sarcasm. And, I love meeting like minded ostrich people. I always avoid making a decision...which is actually making a decision, right?

I can completely relate to wanting to be an ostrich and going back to bed and hide. I have sat here and caught up on everything I have missed the last weeks that I was being an "ostrich". I have had enough giggles reading your blog that I think I might have pulled a muscle...

Thanks for the giggles...I will be back regularly now (cause I am done being an ostrich..lol)

Ugh, I'm so sorry to hear. I hope things start to settle down and work it's way out.

I believe I may suffer from ostrichism too.

Janet said...

I'm a little overwhelmed these days, too. Maybe it's a Janet thing? Unlikely.

Tink said...

I think you should clone yourself and force the clone to do all the work.

Rachael said...

I think it's just a Mom/professional/person thing. I'm not Janet, and I too am totally overwhelmed and struggling to function these days. Here's to a better coming day/week/month for all of us.

Deep breath ... let it out slow. Now grab a beer and chug it. One good burp and you'll be ready to tkae on the world.

Hope things get better and everything calms down for you. Nothing worse then being stressed every day.

Melissa said...

Hang in there! The year will be over soon and you can relax.

As if. :)

ugh. I think freaking out occasionally is good exercise and burns calories? I just made that up, but seems like it should be good for something.
