Excuse me as I blow the dust off this place. WOW. It's amazing how a class and a full schedule can keep a woman busy. Also, it's amazing how once you stop writing you have no ability to put coherent thoughts about life together again. Or maybe that's just me. I am doomed. And since you are reading this you are too. This is a warning.

Couple of things I've noticed lately:
  • I still need lots of therapy.

  • I pink puffy heart Zoloft.

  • My two older children are freakishly tan. They are also a big pain about putting on sunscreen but do it occasionally (re: when I nag them to death).

  • This working full time while trying to coordinate 4 children's summer schedules is kicking my ass. It is HARD. Or maybe I'm just a big whimp. Whatever.

  • Today's schedule:

    • 9-12 Oldest 2 soccer camp

    • 9-12 youngest 2 need childcare

    • 1-3 3rd drama camp

    • 1-4 2nd & 4th golf camp

    • 6-7:30 3rd soccer (our snack night)

    • 6 - oldest soccer game

  • Today is less busy than yesterday. Yes, I said LESS.

  • Also must note, husband has been out of town. He's coming back tonight. All hail a helper at bedtime and soccer runs.

  • It has been unbearably hot and humid here. The air is trying to drown me.

  • I have PMS.

  • Do I need to mention I've been extremely cranky the last couple of days?

  • Oh, my car has no AC and the husband has the new vehicle.

  • Work is unbearably dull.

  • I'm taking a 1/2 day tomorrow.

  • So we can take one of the kids to a psychologist. For depression. And possibly ADD. Fabulous.

  • I just found out I can't have September 3rd off. It's the day before school starts AND the 2nd's birthday. I have a tradition of taking the kids out to breakfast and a whole day of fun the day before school starts. I'd like to plan an alternate celebration but I'm not sure what to do. Any suggestions? And since I asked for the day off I can't call in sick. Frack!

  • I do not get enough vacation days.

I am sneezing like a wild woman from all the dust that just appeared!

We let the birthday person choose their dinner - be it something I make at home or a dinner out. It's always a big build-up to what people will choose sometimes they want something as simple as pizza or as grand as sushi.....And, if there is enough time we do a family activity afterwards - bowling, movie...

I have been thinking of going back on Zoloft. Here is what happens to me, though: when I'm on Zoloft, I think, "This isn't doing anything! I don't even NEED Zoloft because I'm all set now!" Then I go off it and realize it was the Zoloft making me feel so steady. So then I go back on it, and I think, "But why am I on Zoloft when I'm already so awesome?" Etc.
