Welcome Back!

I haven't blogged in a while. Been going through some crap. Emotional, not worthy or viable, CRAP!

We still have NOT had our last disclosure meeting. It seems to keep getting rescheduled. The GAL is in bad health due to her age, and if at all possible...she needs to be present! She has had carrot top on her caseload for ALL of the years he has been in foster care.

CT starts school this week. I bought him a lunch box. This, however, will not be given to him. Not yet anyway.

My children are all back in school. WOO HOOT!!!!!
Do I sound wicked stoked? I am! I love 'em to pieces, but am sure glad they are gone for a few hours. Now the hell of taxi-ing them around is in effect. I will take it. I jam to my tunes, and catch some rays while I am waiting to pick up or drop off!

We are considering pre-school for Gabi. Two days a week. I think it would do her good to spend some time away from our home and rules. Give her something that is just for her. Maybe then she will appreciate the time with her friends here at Tee's House.

Andy-the-Great started school this week. He is excited to venture out. Explore new possibilities. Experience a bit of the college life he missed when he was 18. Short of dorm living, and keg parties, he should get a nibble. However, it is primarily a traditional college setting. Meaning, most of it's students are just out of High School. I hope that he can find a network of Non-Traditional students to share with. This will make his time there more enriching. he has even considered doing Theatre there at UMF. Good for you, Babe!

I hate to be all "WOE Is ME", but I am feeling a crap load of...
"Hey what about me?"
"What is my purpose?"
"Am I only meant for diapering and laundry?"

The burden of a Mom, huh?
I wouldn't change it. Just need to be reminded every so often!

Its hard sometimes isn't it? Fall means new things for just about everyone BUT Mom, unless you want to count a new drop off and pick up routine. Oh the joy.

Find a way to treat you!

Let's go away for a weekend, to OOB, maybe, where we can dance together in that terrible hip hop club...or just sit in the club at the end of the pier where you introduced me to shots...we can hold hands and walk along the beach, and head back to "our" hotel room...

Sometimes it sucks being the one holding down the fort, especially with the little ones and their constant needs.

You, my dear, are a SAINT. And you should insist on many weekends of pampering. I think the crappy work goes a little easier if one is being properly worshipped the rest of the time.

I am with you on the laundry. Agggh! I just DID laundry, how is there MORE? It is unbelievable how much laundry two small children make, and to top it off I make them wear their clothes until they are dirty. None of that one- time wearing business. I want to see crust on a shirt when it goes in the basket.
Good luck on your disclosure meeting, GAL and social worker issues!

No, you are not ONLY a mom. You are a mom AND so much more. You're gorgeous, you have talents and skills, and you have Andy wrapped up in you to an extent that makes us mere mortal wives green with envy.

I'm with M.E. Pamper yourself,let Andy pamper you and recharge. Then keep your eyes open for that little glimmer of something that makes you feel like YOU and pursue that.

All the best,
