Unfortunately, it was a busy day....and its a Sunday...and we go back to work tomorrow...so there is no time to recover from the hecticness. Is that a word? Well, I'm going to use it because it should be.
We went to church, came home, had lunch, CB stopped by for a visit/jewelry shopping trip, went to the grocery store, got laundry going, then left with the girls for the birthday party. You know, the one that I tried to take them to yesterday. And really, yesterday just would have worked better for me. So we went to this birthday party - it was fun, really, it was - but ugh - I am just so tired now.
We drove through a torrential downpour on the way home. For those of you that don't know this about me, I am not a great night driver. I am also not a good rain driver. So night+rain= panic. There was hail. I couldn't see the road. My arms went numb. I had to remind myself to take deep breaths...really just to breathe at all. The girls were whimpering in the back seat and Casey may have been crying at one point. Like that makes it better. For those of you who know the road, I drove from Oconee Heights Baptist on Prince Ave to the Shell station in Arcade, without going above 20 mph. True. I have also decided that part of my night/rain driving problem is that I can't see the road because it is so dark where we live (lack of street lights) and when the rain is going sideways across the road and I am trying to find the road, it makes me seasick. I think that might be the major cause of anxiety. Its my professional, official diagnosis.
I am looking forward to this week though. I feel like last week was just trying to get back on schedule from not having the kids and the MLK holiday. But this week, I am ready. I ready to get back into the groove of going to the gym, of doing laundry during the week, of you know, just living my life...on schedule.
Also, FYI, if you make a purchase in my etsy shop between January 27 and February 14, I will be donating 20% of my sales to the American Heart Association. Valentine's Day...Heart Association....get the connection? :)
