Treading Water

I have a whole list of things I want to write about - the first day of school, sending Campbell to kindergarten, Campbell's sixth birthday, Ella's recovery, our new neighborhood, how the laundry keeps escaping and threatening to take over the house - but I'm having a hard time putting my butt in the chair to write.

Most days, it's all I can do to make it until bedtime. Ella can't ride the bus because of her knee, so I spend a lot of time driving her back and forth. And I've had a spare kid home sick every day for weeks it seems.

So this week I'm hunkering down and getting caught up all the way around. Maybe then I'll be able to write.

I sympathize. My kids haven't been home sick, and my oldest is driving so I no longer have to take him and the tuba to school, so you would think I would have all this time and energy, right?

Time yes, energy no. Even though I've tried to make fewer commitments, I still feel overwhelmed and behind on the volunteer stuff. Ugh.

Oh, boy. Those days are tough. Hang in there!

Wow that sounds like a lot!

We are moving soon, and I am dreading packing, then unpacking, and learning a new neighbourhood.

Hope things settle down for you!
