Mommy Needs a Time Out!

This week my plate is too full or my pot is boiling over or whatever other silly saying you'd like to insert. It's just too much. I'm normally someone who thrives on a little challenge but I think I've met my match.
Here is a short list of things in my bucket of badness this week...
  • Layla had a stomach flu
  • The IRS told me they lost my auto deposit and I had to call the IRS and the bank several times in 10 minute breaks at work
  • Work has been busy and the members are being jerks for some reason this week
  • The landlord called twice
  • Rent was late (see above)
  • I've been on my cycle for 11 days again this time (so far)
  • Jon and I got to have an adult talk in the bedroom (which is never fun)
  • My bills seemed to be able to get paid by the IRS tax return, they told me I would get...only to get a letter today to tell me that I am not, in fact getting a tax return
  • My BFF is visiting and I barely get to see her
  • Layla was totally freaked out after spending the day with a new sitter
  • My mom isn't like my mom anymore
  • I can't get ahold of my pastor

That's the short list...there is a little Jon's family drama, some vacation canceling and my personal favorite a tiny bit of "oh shit we're out of diapers" to throw in there too...

I need some Tinkerbelle movie time outs myself this week.

I hope things get better soon.

I was just talking with friend up here through the past few days. She has three kids and the bills were way late. She was frantic with worry about making it until her husband got paid again. Well, they made it and so will you!

Hope your weekend is WAY better than your week!!!

I am really sorry that we haven't got to spend much time together since I've been home. There are still two more weeks though.
