HALP!!! But seriously, I cannot. I cannot read. I cannot sculpt. I cannot create any of my artsy stuff that used to keep me sane. I AM LOSING MY MIND!!!
My 5 year old was sick this morning. Not REALLY sick, but the cranky, mid-grade fever sick. The kind that is basically cured with Ibuprofen and a bunch of TV, but means that you cannot interact with the outside world because it is not nice to share germs with our friends.
I MISS PEOPLE!!!
The thing with joining the community that I have, and attending meetings and functions for said community on a nightly basis is that I have gotten used to socializing. Me. Socializing. It's so weird. I talk to people I don't know. I smile and wave at familiar faces and make actual eye contact.
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME?!
I used to be somewhat of a recluse. Especially in the wintertime. Last year I finally got together a group of moms in town to help each other to emerge from the caves we get stuck in when we're stay at home moms. It's easy to go for days at a time without putting real pants on or doing anything more significant than take a ride down to Walmart to buy milk. And maybe a new pair of pj's for Mom. Because we're tired, people. We deserve things like new pj's, damnit.
I'm rambling. Someone stop me.
I'm going to go clean the crap out of my house and count down the minutes until my teenager gets home and can be bribed to watch her little siblings while Mom takes a few minutes to BREATHE.
Breathe, moms and dads. This Monday is more than half over! Woooo!!!!
Stay out of trouble.
