“You may delay, but time will not.” ~Benjamin Franklin
Time marches on whether we want it to or not.
The movers are coming tomorrow and I’m NOT READY! MAN! I just feel like there is so much to do. It also means I’ll probably be offline for a while until we get moved, get our stuff and get our ISP set back up! DANG. How am I going to make it?
I’m afraid I could have withdrawals. This could mean trouble. Better find the public library pronto. That and a Weight Watchers meeting. Good lord I’m eating everything in sight.
I’m also getting very nervous about Jacob’s school situation. I’ve done what I can to talk with people there and provide information and share my concerns. I’ve prayed about it. I trust God to provide. In the midst of my faith, I am still human and a mother!!
Plus, I’m just kinda cranky. I nearly bit my husband’s head off today…through the phone line. I’m so out of my mind right now. Poor guy. I’m just feeling so overwhelmed and emotional and unfortunately he’s an easy target. But I miss him and am so ready to have him back with us. He’ll be here Tuesday…not a moment too soon.
One farewell party down, one to go. Friday night was very nice. It was made so much easier by the fact that my Dad was here for a short visit and went with us. Thanks, Daddy! Such a nice group of people that I am blessed to know. I’m gonna miss them! SIGH. Tuesday night will be tough, and thankfully, Clyn will be back and keep me from completely falling apart…at least until Wednesday when we pull out of town for real and then there will just be no helping me! It will be an “ugly cry”. Oh yes, you know what I’m talking about. Facial contortions. Nose running. Sucking wind. That kind of cry. I think it will be the same for Emma too. But, we’ll be okay. Though we’ll be a MESS for the time being!
I keep going back to my mantra from a while back: “RELAX! BREATHE! It will all come together!” I will. It will.
It’s a strange thing, but when you are dreading something, and would give anything to slow down time, it has a disobliging habit of speeding up. ~J.K. Rowling, “The Hungarian Horntail,” Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, 2000
