There's always tomorrow

I did well today smiling and saying things were fine. I collapsed at almost 4:00 when I returned home to a sink full of dishes, 4 loads of laundry to be folded and 1 to be rewashed in the washing machine (it sat too long in 100 degree plus heat). I have a ton to do for the first day of school tomorrow. Copies to be made. Labeling of school supplies. Setting out and ironing of school clothes. Camera batteries to charge. I'm exhausted just thinking about it all.

You are probably saying..... If she has so much to do, why is she blogging. Because I need to vent and this is better than taking it out on my kids or my husband. You can just not read it and you don't have to hear the fear in my voice over the possibility that something will go undone. (Which, by the way, I did have happen today.)

Dinner is cooking and I am praying Gigi stays asleep until its finished and I've had a chance to eat it....

Okay, venting and self-pity aside, I know moms (and dads) all over the country are doing the same thing right now and if for some reason it doesn't all get done - there's always tomorrow. Maybe the "Merry Maids Fairy Godmother" will make a visit tonight...

You need to go to Your Other Kitchen with me! I haven't "cooked" in 2 weeks.

That aside, I so hear you. I'm sorry yesterday felt like a bust. I hope today was better.

If all else fails, we can go to Starbucks in the AM! (I think I have some Scrip left.)
