I wanna run away....

I found myself checking out an airline ticket and rental car to Florida for a quick get-away today. Not bad for 4 days....$200.

Knew just where I was heading too....

For some reason today was tough. No, not just today, but this whole week. Guessing it's all catching up with me.

Ever since Tom's accident, we've been a one car family. I work 20 miles away; which means I leave work early to drive home just to turn around again to get Miss T to dance. Before, Tom was the taxi.

This week we've looked at 2 different vehicles...the Highlander and just yesterday we found ourselves at the GMC dealership looking at a truck almost identical to the one we lost.

I think that I have not truly mourned the loss of my baby truck. It was a senseless thing; however it has lead to the much needed sobriety of Mr Man.

Everyone depends on me to do any and everything; I think for these people (even at work) and it gets next to me. ME: "Tom, did you call R for a ride?" T: "No" ME: "It's getting late, better get him before he makes other plans"....

No brainer...if you want a ride to AA....duh.

BOSS: "I paid a bill but I don't know why, find out for me"
ME: "Um, you signed up for this service in January!"

MOM: "I'm stuck in your yard"
ME: (I'm not home) "OK, I'll be there soon" in the meantime I run into my neighbor and ask him to help us.

NANNY: "Sharon I want to go get a haircut if you are going into town on your day off"
ME: (sigh.................)

Miss T: "Mom, where's my......? Oh!"
ME: It doesn't matter if it's in front of her nose she just can't see it. I swear sometimes she's a real blonde!

And then there's all these projects I'd like to start or finish, not to mention house work.

I keep hearing about this archaic word...."fun"...anyone have any idea what that's about?

Where is my ME time?

Now I feel like there is something physically wrong with me. I know it's the stress, tension and all, but in the back of my mind I can't help but wonder.....is there more?

Yeah, FL is where we live also--for 44 years! Lot of ME time being just "wasted" (-grin!) on the beach.

We all go through our cycles of busy and crazy, hope yours ends soon.

I know how hard it can be to be the chief cook and bottle washer. Sometimes you just want to throw your hands up and say "I quit!" Just remember "This too shall pass" I hope things get better for you soon.

Hope you can get another car soon so things arent so hectic for you. You need to learn to say no once in awhile and take some time for yourself!!!

The only time slot for my "Me" time is when I'm going to the bathroom or doing housework. They can't seem to find me then or choose not to. Hope you enjoy your time away. Take care,
Katie

There is no me time either. I can so relate. I can't even go pee alone! There is at least a pet in there if not both children. It gets old!!! Let's run away together!
