Kick me in the head, someone. Or buy me a drink.
It's a busy week here. Nolan has a project due today(make a puppet and write a report about someone who signed the Declaration of Independence), Ben just had one due last week(Rainforest Animal--report and 3d depiction of his animal, a caiman), and Ryan has Water Day Fun coming up on Friday. Nolan also has a band concert tonight, Ben has to be at aikido for another student's test at around the same time (he's the partner); there's the first double booking, but I have help this time, thanks to the other coolest Dad I know; I need to fill up water balloons on Thursday night for Ryan's festivities on Fri, and there's something I'm forgetting, I know it.
Oh, yeah. I just realized that in addition to volunteering (teacher asked for help, I said yes) at Ryan's water day, I have to take Nolan to the eye doctor too, and the times will probably overlap. OY! That's what I get for not checking the calendar. I'll just have to have a chat with her tomorrow, and work it out.
I need a clone. Or a wife, lol.
To top it off, I'm retaining water for some unknown reason, and I haven't seen my ankles in a couple of days. When I went to the doc about it (hey, it freaked me out) she said it could be anything; stress, hormones...and I thought, I swear to god, I thought, "I'm not under any undue stress." And as I sat here thinking about this week, I have say to myself 'what? not under any stress? You'll buy the hormone theory (they are raging; look out, temper; look out, sex goddess) but not the stress one? Wacko!'
Guess I didn't realize it until I wrote it. Honestly, so many things to do all the time, only so much of me to go around. I'm not whining, mind you, I'm just wrapping my mind around the insanity this week is turning into. On the bright side:
*Tomorrow is Weds. and the week is halfway over.
*I don't have to go it alone, I have dh and my friends to help out when I'm about to jump
*I've discovered, through the kid's projects, my hidden talent as a sculptress...painter...and that I can wield a mean pair of scissors...that replica of 'David' is just a package of Model Magic away
*I just need to make it through this week...Friday I may go to a Diamondbacks game with a friend, and we only have 5 more days of school left, sleeping in (hahahaha) is just around the corner.
*Ben's birthday is coming up next week! And Disneyland the week after that! (Indiana Jones ride, here I come!!)
I feel so much better now I think I'll go to bed. I'm gonna need all the rest I can get--
'cause who knows what'll pop up that I 'forgot' in the morning.
