I need more time...

Oh I am so stressed. We are right in the middle of moving. I'm hoping to be organized by the end of the weekend. I HATE moving so much!

I have been so upset about everything that I haven't slept very much at all. I'm just dead exhausted. you should see what I look like. i haven't been able to find anything. I have no conditioner in my hair and it's sticking up all over the place. Today, I wore black pants, black dress shoes, and YELLOW socks to work. See, I've been working 9 hours a day. I'm up at 5:30am, gone by 7am, and I get home about 6:30.

The only time I get to myself lately is in the car to and from work. I have to say that it's nice. I like the drive, and I can listen to whatever music I want and there isn't anyone to complain, or to talk to me, or tell me how to drive.

But, I need more time. I see my therapist once every two weeks to hash things out, but it's not the same as taking time out to go shopping or for coffee with friends. I just feel like I have no time. Like right now for instance. My father in law is in the next room. My year old niece is running around, and Alyssa (4) is playing the piano, and Nicholas (9) is running rampant through the house with his pretend lord of the rings sword. DF is down in the basement watching TV and eating chips. Every 5 seconds I'm yelling "Stop running!"

I don't know how I can find more time to myself. I'm going to have to, otherwise I'm going to go even more nuts than I already am.

I hate moving too. We're all hear to listen whenever you need a vent or a break. Did you feel any better after getting that all down in writing and letting it all out?

I did! Now I feel even better because everyone's in bed but me, and I'm finally relaxing on my own. Now I'm going down to watch TV.

I'm reading the most interesting book. it's call the "Last Apocalypse" and it's a "saga" written about the year 1000. It's humourous but full of history.

I think that if reincarnation exists, I would have been a really tough viking woman...lol.

Honestly, I haven't picked up a book in ages that wasn't something I had to do for work, or read with the kids.

I know what you mean. Since my daughter was born, I appreciate my reading time SO much more than I ever did. It really is a special treat now. That sounds like an interesting book. I should mention it to my husband. He's a history major but he mostly focuses on American History and I'm always traying to get him to read non-American history stuff.

Oh anyone who likes history would love this book. It talks about the crusades extensively, and is written from such an interesting point of view.

Hey Sarah,


You do have a lot resting on your shoulders right now. Is there away for you to take
