...or just falling apart at the seams. I guess it is mostly Hormonia McWeepy just stopping in, but I am feeling very tender lately. The next couple of months are feeling a bit overwhelming. This month I have a Mother's Day lunch to do, Handsome Lad's birthday, and Girlie Girl's prom. Next month, both of them have graduations, plus Father's Day and Social Animal's birthday. It feels like too much stuff I can't afford coming down on me all at once. It is months like these when I'm forced to recognize how close I live to the edge of not having enough. I get discouraged when I realize I'm going to be struggling like this for the rest of my life. But of course, I only get like this on bad days :-)
Just a few minutes ago, I was sitting here at my desk. I clicked on this link from Presurfer that had these pictures of cats and dogs photobombing each other. Want to see it? Look HERE. Okay, so it really tickled me. Mostly the way the dogs look so goofy and happy and the cats are mostly glaring malevolently at the camera...anyway, so I was actually laughing out loud at my desk, when all of a sudden I felt something give way inside of me and I started weeping. Luckily, no one else was here in the office. It was the oddest feeling. But it did point out to me that I might just be feeling some stress. Not much to be done about it, but good to be aware. Sometimes I ignore my feelings and sometimes I simply don't recognize them.
Anyway, here's hoping for better days. And here are a couple of announcements just to reward you for reading this far :-)
It is Mrs. Hairy Woman's birthday! Let us all wish her a good one and many more to come!
Also, AlienCG has tagged 3GirlKnight to choose next week's Saturday Scavenger Shots word. Shot 3GK an email...we'll see if he wants to play.
Lastly, (whew! ) please stop in tomorrow for Choose and Defend. I will try to make it something fun. Actually, suggestions welcomed! Anytime. Thanks for bearing with me. xx
