I am so D.O.N.E.


I have a favorite response to the question of "How long do you plan to homeschool?"

My answer is "Well, we're doing it today and I'm pretty sure we're doing it tomorrow, too, but all bets are off after that."

Of course, if you were to ask me that question today, I would laugh maniacally and ask where the nearest elementary is. It's just been that kind of day/week. The worst part is that there's not really any *thing* I can blame for my foul mood and overwhelming desire to lock myself in my closet. So let's take a look at what the underlying causes might be.

1. We just got back from a long trip last week.
2. The girls spent the last month with Grandma and Grandad.
3. We started a short handwriting refresher course.
4. We had 2 boys visit on Wednesday, and one boy yesterday and today.
5. The household chores have been piling up with no time/energy to do them.
6. I went back on the elimination diet and ate only turkey, green beans, with the occasional grapes and fritos for several days. That's enough to make anyone grumpy. (The best, most fabulous thing is that I started taking my meds from the doc again and they're *working* this time!!)
7. I have got to organize my homeschool stuff to close out last year and finish my planning for this year, which is taking up a lot of my limited brain power.
8. Our lease is up in 3 months and I'm obsessing over what we're going to do about that.

I need to turn off my worry switch and just be for a little while. As I told Mr. at Home, I'm just tired of making decisions. At the moment, my biggest decision is whether to take my sorry self to the mall for some Barnes & Noble and Dairy Queen or simply stretch out here on the couch and sleep. And I don't even want to make that decision. It's quiet for the moment since Mr. at Home took the munchkins off somewhere, probably to save them from their Wicked Witch of a mom.

Oh wait, I hear the door. He brought me ICE CREAM. I love that man!!
