I'm not sure what is going on this morning. The sun hasn't come up yet and I'm finding myself teary and at a loss of what to say. Not something that happens all that often. I think...I KNOW that I've been hopping on that hamster wheel of no return...mom-wife-errand runner-must pack for weekend trip-another 3 loads of laundry- and now I have to fold it!-haven't yet-still more errands to run-make sandwiches-leave pet instructions-get the oil changed in the car-and I can't get off the ride because I'm in charge-bring GIRL to school for 1 hour so she won't miss her first show-and-tell at the new school-before we leave for our 6 hour drive to my mom's-where it will be fantastic to see everyone-but, because I've worn myself out-I came down with a bloody cold last night-... THAT hamster wheel. DEEP BREATH. Yep, that about sums it up. And does anyone have a kleenex?
Of course all of this could be explained by the current state of our country which appears to be going to hell in a handbasket. Whether it is being told that we're now responsible for a deficit that has more zeros than I can possibly add up myself, or that someone running for office can play tiddly winks with Russia by looking out her kitchen window from Alaska...honestly, I'm not sure that I'm really awake. Am I? Unfortunately, I think I am. And guess what? We're all in this hot tub together. So, move over honey and let go of your germ phobia.
I'm going up north for a couple of days to celebrate the birthday of a wonderful man, whom I am lucky enough to call my step-father. While I'm gone make yourself at home here.
