Sanity Is Starting to Return

Things seem a bit settled in the MoMMY household. The crisis seems to have passed although there are still unavoidable discussions to be had. Looking back I can see hormones, hypogycemia, parent/child conflict, insecurity, exhaustion, power struggles and sibling stuff all having a roll in last night's escapades. So yah, a lot of stuff coming to the boiling point all at once and exploding.

Now is the calm after the storm. And as much as I wish it was over I'm sure there will be ripples for some time. The first ripple being that I ate my body weight in Parmesan Basil Wheat Thins. (They are NEW! and YUMMY! and so new I can not find any mention that they exist on the internet!) So now we are all reminded: WE MUST. NOT. ANGER. THE PARENTING GODS. ANY. MORE.

In other news, I have an appointment next Tuesday with the HR dept. at the hospital where I have been hoping to be employed. So YAY! I think it may actually happen. Me. A job. A chance at a bit of sanity. Because now that the kids are in school all day? I am going out of my friggin MIND. Yes, there are a million things I could and should be doing. But I hate all those things so I don't do them anyway. Now at least I'll have less guilt about not doing them.

Assuming nothing goes wrong.

And I get the job.

I yet other news, Amanda Sue requested the delicious recipe from the other night. It was for Smoky-Spicy Black Bean Quesadillas from Vegetarian Times online. And no, we aren't vegetarians but I do enjoy a good meatless dish now and again.

And now I must cook for children who will refuse to eat and anger me.
