Done and done.

Ever have one of those moments, where all the world’s chaos is swirling around you, that you look in the mirror and say to yourself, “I am so over this”? 

That was me last night. 

Things that I am so over right now include, in no particular order: 

  1. Cats
  2. Parenting
  3. Working
  4. Husbands
  5. Paying bills
  6. Getting older
  7. Parents
  8. Hometowns
  9. Laundry
  10. Clutter
  11. School
  12. Homework
  13. Being sociable
  14. Being health-conscious

The weeks of my years are constructed from days that contain varying degrees of difficulty, and yesterday was one of those days where I just flat-out hit the wall.  I seem to be doing that with increasing regularity.  I can only hope that the impending end of the school year will alleviate some of that, because at the very least it will eliminate the onus of school, homework, and a large portion of laundry.  Maybe it will help me to ease up on the constant pushing I have to do to get Spawn moving through the cycle of get-up-get-dressed-go-to-school-come-home-homework-dinner-bath-bedtime.  By the end of the day I am spent. 

I have a box of books that I brought home from the school’s used book sale.  What I would really like to do is take that box and go somewhere warm and tropical for as long as it would take to read every one of those books.  And as long as I am fantasizing, there will be a pool, gourmet food, maid service, and a good deal of solitude.  Because a bubble bath is just not cutting it these days.
