tired

Do you ever have one of those days where everything seems to be a train running running down the tracks out of control? Well that was my day today. That on the heels of a non-stop weekend where I literally don't think I sat down until 8pm last night after having gotten started at 7:30am. I'm really jonseing for a little me time to kick back and relax, but no..... that's not gonna happen anytime soon; especially the me time. Tomorrow my parents arrive for their annual holiday visit.

In addition to their arrival I've got work, the little man has his last day of school before Christmas break, and there's the 2pm Christmas party at school that I'm gonna skate out of work to attend. Then it's home to change, wait for the parental arrival, hopefully have enough time to eat dinner and finally scoot out the door to the school Christmas performance..... at 5:45pm. Who in their right mind sets a school function at 5:45pm on the last day of school before a 2 week break? I swear the music teacher needs to retire.

I know it sounds like I'm complaining, and well..... I am. I'm tired. And I'm grumpy. And at this point I just want the holidays overwith so we can resume normal programming. But I'm also aware that this is a very difficult time of year for some so I feel sort of petty with my complaining. I've read on so many blogs in the past week how this is a very depressing time of year for many, and that makes me sad. Especially when it's someone I call a friend. I mean I know we all have our own issues, and our own demons to fight, but there's still a part of me that wishes I could make all the hurt and anger and sadness just disappear.

It's hard not to complain about how busy we all are right now. I suppose it is all worth it... in the end... right?

I'm with you on wanting to help ease the pain some folks feel. I want to help everyone have a wonderful holiday.

Thank you for the card, too! You are awesome.

I'm with you on the exhaustion. I'm more worn out than the knees in Paris Hilton's jeans. Even my analogies are suffering. Thanks for the card! Kathleen looked at me and said, "You gave our address out." i told her my name, the city we live in and my picture is on the blog how hard would it be for someone to google our address? She bought it....excellent;)

Yeah, the holidays are tough for everyone in some capacity. I don't look forward to them. Family reunions can be like root canals...ha.

i hope that even though you are frazzled you have great holidays! i'm very much looking forward to the weekend through new years! i love this time of year. i feel like i have no time, but that's exciting to me. yes, i'm warped. for those who are not so happy during the holidays, hopefully something special happens to turn things around for them.
