Snow balling busy-ness

I’ve had a frustrating week for a variety of reasons.  It seems like everything that could go wrong has gone wrong.  I’ve even managed to get some people off-side and well…let’s face it…mad at me.  Sigh.  I’m SO over it all.  I have found this week to be incredibly draining, both physically and emotionally.

I had hoped for at least one day at home, with nothing to do but potter and enjoy some peace and maybe do a little business work – it hasn’t happened.  And it’s not going to happen today either.   We have a birthday party to attend for one of Aislin’s friends and that in itself isn’t a problem.  However, I have offered to arrive early to help set up etc (I know what it’s like organising a child’s party), I also have volunteered to pick up another child and take them to the party as their mother is working (I know what that’s like too).  We also have to stop and buy a birthday present as I’ve been so busy all week I haven’t had a chance to do that yet.   So I’ve managed to create some extra running around for myself, it’s not frantic – just time consuming and ultimately tiring.  And I’m already very tired.

I would sell my soul for a week, ALL ALONE at the beach house.  But I won’t be getting that any time soon either.

Here ends the self-pity post.

Hi Caitlin! Too bad about your frustrating week. I'm paying a visit because I was going back through my previous posts and when I was having the week from hell in Sept, 2008, you wrote "keep up the rum". So here's back at ya - dark rum with lots of ice. Cheers! Putting your feet up for this is not optional - its mandatory!

Good idea Dave, I can't say it hasn't crossed my mind. :-)

Hi Pam! Did I say that? Sounds like good advice, rum just might be on my weekend 'to do' list now.
