Oh where, oh where had friend LB gone,

O where, oh where can she be?

Well, the answer is that she is doing her best to live life. My schedule is unbelievably hectic this year. I feel like Midnight Blue (our new van) and I could be hired out as a taxi service. The last few days, I have been leaving the house at 8 or 9 in the morning, and not getting home till 4 or 5. I am really struggling with this.

Part of the issue is that we have more going on than I had originally thought we would. I had not taken into account that when the Girl was preparing for a piano competition (Bach Fest at the downtown Sherman Clay store, Oct. 7th), that she would be taking 2 piano lessons a week, instead of 1. She has an amazing teacher, and they are working very hard. I don't want to discourage this in any way, but it takes up 2 hours of my day for each lesson.

The other thing that is sucking my time up is my physical therapy. I am entering my 6th month of physical therapyand going twice a week. Again, this takes up two hours of my day, and then I am supposed to go straight to bed and rest afterwards. Thanks again so much to the poopy-butt-head that decided to take his road rage out on me and push my sweet mini-van into a tree, and then thought it was ok to drive off without even an apology.

These two things are really eating into my week. I want to be able to spend time each week with my mom, I want to spend an entire day volunteering with those less fortunate than us, I want to cook wonderful meals for my family, and have a living room that is clean and welcoming. I want to do my household chores pain-free and joyfully. I want to get my basement cleaned and organized so my hunny can get the chores done he needs to down there. I want to read tons of books this year, and make lots of quilts, and then blog about them. I want to spend time preparing for my teaching jobs (Yeah, did I mention I am supposed to be teaching nature studies 3X a month, and also a class or two at the community college?). I also want to feel like I am doing a good job as a teacher, and supporting the kids in their educational endeavors. But right now, I just feel like an inadequate taxi driver.

It would help if my Boy was self-motivated in his studies. He is not using the little bit of time that he does have with me to his advantage. THe hormones get in the way. I think he is starting to get it, but it is so hard to be patient with him right now.

Well, in a nutshell, that is what is up with me, ans why I haven't been blogging. I don't have this issue resolved, but will spend some time thinking about what poosibilities I have here.

I've missed you! Wish I had some solutions for you - there's just too much to be crammed into too little time.

{{{hugs}}} sweetie. I don't think I'll fare as well when I get to that stage as you have thus far. If you want, though, I could pretend! Keep hanging in there!

Mmmm, I smell like a Happy Hippe! Thank you, my friend.
