Calgon take me away...

I'm in a bad mood and anxious mood all wrapped up together. This has been a busy week and the effects are starting to get to me.

First off my Dad is in the hospital back in Akron. He is passing some blood and (yet again) they need to determine from where. It's frustrating to be so far away but there isn't anything I can do about it at this moment. I just have to wait and see. I am not a patient person. Any ideas where I may have gotten that? Bonus points for the person's full name!

Secondly, we have been given the o.k. to look at houses and I'm very anxious about it. I have been wanting to get settled for quite a while but now that it is actually time I'm nervous. I want everything to be perfect but already know that it won't be.

Thirdly, Amanda is pretty much hating the cast. Last night was a repeat of the first night and again I ended up sleeping with her on the floor. My mood is only enhanced by the fact that I'm really tired. It's Daddy's turn tonight if there's any crying. Unfortunately, he's tired, too. Luckily A is sleeping but I was worried that nap time would be a battle. The houses behind us decided today was the day to have trees trimmed and all I hear are chain saws. Don't they know this is nap time??!!

I need to quit feeling sorry for myself. The sun is shining and it's actually hot here. The temperature in my car was in the 80's. Today was kindergarten round up and Cameron sailed through that with flying colors. I think he's going to love school. Only time will tell!


  1. Sometimes, you just have to feel sorry for yourself, and once you do, you may even feel better! I, too, hate that nobody ever seems to get that it is nap time. I even yell at my husband if he honks in the middle of the day because I worry that he might be irritating some other stay at home mom!
    As for house hunting, I felt the same way. I was so excited to buy a house, and when we started looking, I just couldn't do it. There were too many things that I hated about every house, I drove my husband nuts. Turns out, after much prayer, we decided to try to leave the area, so I am relived that we didn't buy. I know that won't be the case for you, but I do know if you pray about it, you will feel better. (Not as good as if God just handed you a slip of paper with which house to buy on it, but better than if you don't!) Good luck! There's nothing more fun than dragging 3 kids to look at house after house after house. Unless of course you do it when it is 8 degrees outside and most of the houses are bank owned with no heat... FUN STUFF!
    Really it is just another story to tell.

  2. Prayer is still a good answer even though the questions have changed over the weekend. I'm praying with you.

  3. I realize that my bad mood was stemming from what I truly knew was going on with Molly. I was worried and was struggling with my emotions. Funny how our minds can do that!
