randomness

*if you were wondering why my posts aren't showing up in your reader, I've switched over to private status for a bit...not sure how long I'll be here, but my paranoia is peaked right now, so here we are. my huge reading audience will surely plummet now. haha.

*back in the work routine. it's the pits.

*we had an assembly at school last week. it was free. it involved the use of yo-yos. the "catch" to it being free was that we would offer to sell the yo-yos at school for 5 days after the show. Today is day 5. I have sold $1600 in yo-yos. dang.

*i'm currently 3 weeks behind in Project Life. blaming this on also going back to work. seriously, I do not know how I kept up when I was working earlier this year. 

*speaking of work, yesterday, i almost had a meltdown. i have NO time. i wanted to clobber anyone who dared say stay-at-home-moms have it rough. from the minute i arrive home from work, i am moving non-stop. there is NO tv-time for me. no couch time. no relaxing. none. i'm a single mom all week but the saddest part of that is I'm not sure how much better/easier it would be if O was home. he's not much help. maybe bathing E once in a while but not like it's "his job" or anything (way back when we had agreed it was). this is not a "dump on O" rant, it's an "i'm so sick of rushing to get everything done every single night" rant. I get as much ready at night as possible, clothes out (for me and E), his breakfast bag, my lunch, a load of laundry, dinner: cooking & cleanup, general tidying around the house, water the garden...it's never ending and it's too much. Yes, we went to the Y and didn't get home til 6:20pm or so, but I don't feel like the Y is something I can entirely give up during the week. Without running for the past 4 months, I absolutely cannot skip a day there-thank you added 8lbs-I've transitioned over to swimming hoping for a great calorie burn and some healing time for the foot. ok, vent over. for now. i think.

I think tweeting that you blogged helps, in lieu of no feed. =)

Who knew there was such a demand for yo-yos?!

I completely understand where you're coming from. I don't even have a young one anymore, but I still have no time.

It's good that you're taking time for yourself at the Y though - don't give up on that and don't be so hard on yourself. I now ask myself - will the world fall apart if I don't do this tonight? The answer is usually no.

Just remember to breath...

@Dawn - I ended up selling $2179 in yoyos over the 5 days. Nuts!

Oh, I'm there with you girl! Does it help to know you are not alone and we can look forward to a few minutes of girl time now and again? Love ya. Hang in there. One of us has to for the other! Lol.
