Hi everyone. 

I am exhausted.  It was a crazy night here and then I woke up at 3 a.m. and never went back to sleep. I'm barely functional.

The teens headed off to the 4H fairgrounds for setup this morning. They were supposed to sleep over tonight but due to strong storms/possible tornadoes, the director said everyone goes home mid afternoon except judges assistants (Kayleigh) who leave right after judging. This happens the Thursday or Friday of fair every year.

I went to work this a.m., picked up Ian from the fairgrounds after, took him out to lunch. I intended to spend a couple of hours with him and take him back to the fairgrounds til they cancelled the late afternoon/evening activities.  I came home and tried to nap, now doing a little cleaning and finishing up my packing.  I'll eat dinner with Dh and Ian, then turn in super early. Plan to hit the road at 8:00, be at the airport by 9:00 hopefully and my flight is at 11 a.m.  I should land in Chicago around 3:15 their time

Today I went downtown and ran all the errands I didn't do yesterday. I took DD to school to register her laptop and had DS drive to the gym, the. We traded off and he ran home after his workout, while I took DD with me downtown. Laundry is just about done, so I am going to devote a few hours to garage cleaning. Later this afternoon I am going to help a friend can pickles. Dinner tonite is something very unhealthy but very delicious, fried chicken from one of my favorite places. We only have it a few times a year.

I'm going to whine.  Sigh. 

Tired of hauling Kristen to this temp job.  It's kind of a pain.  But on the up side- I have managed to get things done while she was working.  Went to a different base gym (on the Air Station base- that gym is SOOO nice, so much cleaner and nicer than the one at the shipyard I go to). Kristen's gotten a couple of days on interstate practice- which is a good thing.

 Got a wedding gift bought (for the wedding I don't wanna go to b/c it means 5 days with the inlaws and I really don't want to listen to FIL complain for that many days- and MIL bending over backward to do everything but wipe everyone's butt for 5 days and then she complains how tired she is- sigh). 

 And a new school year calendar so I can pencil in when the college student will be coming home.  She leaves in 20 ish days.  I think she's ready.  We are LOL. Praying that the tuition check gets there in time.  It's in a separate account in USAA, under dh's name.  They wouldn't release the money to me (ie transfer it to the checking acct so I could write a check).  So it got put off (and I was a pest about telling him that it needed to be done) and he got around to doing it a week ago, so funds were available yesterday.  Tution is due Aug 1.  That's still a couple of days away and the letter's only going 150 miles. 

Jasper's sick.  Don't know what's wrong with him.  He has eaten and gone to the bathroom today so that's a good sign.  I think there's something going on- but what I don't know.  I should get him in and get a senior panel done on him.  But that's over $200- something we don't have right now.  SIgh.  I'm thinking it could be either diabetes or kidney.  We had a kitty who had kidney failure and his symptoms were kind of similar to what Jasper's doing now.  There's not a whole lot we can do in that instance- but the other kitty managed to hang on a couple of years after he got diagnosed with kidney failure. 

And I'm so over Becca and the attitude.  Today it was "Well- I could have gone to Busch Gardens with the BF but YOU said I had to go to Chamber rehersal."  I said no such thing.  SHE was the one who said that "The music is hard- we're playing at the Music Educator's conference in Richmond in Novemeber and we have to sound REALLY good- so I can't miss many rehersals.". SIGH.  She's got her period to boot so she's in such a lovely mood. 

Maybe that's why I'm in a mood.  Mine's been acting funky- I was kind of hoping that I'm getting near to the big "M" LOL.  Maybe I am. 

Kristen's got an eye appt she wants me to go with.  Why?  I don't think her eyes need to be dialated.  But then again- I don't want her to drive if they do get done- it's a pain.

I can't believe it's ALREADY Thursday! The next two weeks are going to be a whirlwind and I was hoping to get more done before it started.

This morning I'm at a swim meet. When we're done I'm headed in to work to cover the desk for the admin while she has lunch. This afterenoon I need to finish some paperwork and get it in the mail as well as take some time to tidy up the house. It wasn't under control when I got back and between jet lag, work, and swimming commitments, I haven't taken the time to regain control (except for laundry).

I had tacos on the menu for dinner but it's date night and dh suggested taking a picnic to a free outdoor Abba tribute at a local park so I'm not sure what we'll do. Don't really have picnic food at home and the idea of cold tacos doesn't thrill me. After getting up at 5 I'm not sure I'll have the energy to go shopping after work.

Thanks Ami! It had gotten better for a while, but DSS being here and then our vacation, things have just gotten out of hand and I completely slacked on vacation with all my diet changes and I am really paying for it right now, I felt calm and refreshed Monday, but I am exhausted and dragging now. And the girls have obviously had WAY too much together time, DH said on the way to school yesterday Emma had Madison in a head lock and Madison was biting Emma! I just need to get us back on a routine and back into my diet changes and things should be good. We have a month til kindergarten starts, hopefully that will help also since the kids will be split up.

Oh Tracy, I hope they get back on schedule. I'm worried about how Jax is going to react to the late nights at the pool. Good Luck, I know it takes time!!!
