Today is one of those days when I just feel overwhelmed by life.
I have a massive to-do list for November, and yesterday I was all, “I’m on top of it! We’re halfway there! It’s all happening!”
Today, everywhere I look I see a dirty house, kids needing activities (it’s a PD Day today), piles of PTA paperwork requiring my attention.
There’s the book club book for next week — I’m on page 5. There’s the fish tank that hasn’t been cleaned in weeks. There’s the passport applications I’ve been sitting on for more than two months; there’s the Christmas newsletter with just two lines written.
To top it all off, I had a dentist appointment yesterday and I have a cavity, so now I have a second dentist appointment this month.
Also, I was supposed to bring Captain Jelly Belly with me to the dentist and I totally forgot him. I really just need a day off to get my head screwed on properly.
Mrs. Carl Sagan is on her way over right now with her kids, and I have a feeling that a visit from a good friend, and a good cup of tea, will really help turn my attitude around.
So come back in an hour or two, and it’ll all be happening again.
