This is a post to get the Hamster post off the top of my blog.
I'm a bit tired and am having a difficult time figuring out what to write, not that I haven't laughed, but because its been so crazy, so daggum busy, with little bits of horror mixed in for good measure, that my brain is a bit fuzzy.
I was so stressed yesterday that at one point I wondered if I was in the process of having a stroke, that burning sensation I get across that one vein that runs along the left side of my head.
And I wish I could say I was joking, but I'm really not. It was that bad.
I'm trying to mellow out... let other people do the worrying where it should be done... trying not to fight the battles I'm worn out from fighting. Someone else needs to take the sword because I'm exhausted. My husband realizes it and has done his share of slaying of demons this week... but we're all done.
And for some of you, none of this makes sense. A few have an inkling... but I assure you, my immediate family is fine.
What I want are some happy stories. I'm going to be asking for them, the topic being mine, the story being yours in my comments, but not now as Fluffy has been so awful in letting people comment.
I really am trying to stake Fluffy in the heart. I'm trying to install Haloscan comments and have some people that will help me. If that happens, I'll have a big delurking party so everyone can do a big shout out.
Kind of like the Who's in Whoville shouting, "We're Here! We're Here!"
On a hugely positive note, my two older boys finished the swimming portion of the Boy Scout Swimming Merit Badge this weekend. I think they were exhausted, but really had a good time, as they had to jump in the pool fully clothed and disrobe (except for bathing suit) and inflate their pants while treading water.
After camp this summer, they should be at the halfway point for attaining Eagle.
Change of topics... sometimes I wish someone could live my life for a week and tell me what they think.
But I will settle for the fact that some people had to walk in my shoes for a few hours tonight and got to see what my husband and I have had to put up with for way too long.
Eyes were opened.
Let us see if it helped. I definitely felt smug.
More tomorrow... perhaps a final staking of Fluffy. I'm working on it... I am.
OH! And I so did not have the final four being UConn, Mich State, NC and Villanova. Hunh.Posted by Boudicca at March 29, 2009 09:46 PM
