I barely have time to breathe today.
As I was rocking A, she looked up at me and said "How is it time to go to bed already when we just woke up?" I told her some days are like this and she said "Yeah, some days just go by so slow." I didn't have the heart to tell her she had the saying wrong.
Speaking of bed time, I glanced at the clock on the stove, noting it was 6:30, and I told A it was time for bed. After rocking her, I sat down to tweet, then realized it was 6:30. Yeah, I guess I need to change a few clocks around the house.
NYEBoy accepted a job offer on Friday. Bless his heart. The man has done everything above and beyond what one could ask for his family. He's taken side jobs, making a third of what he's used to, just to earn some extra money to cover the bills and lawyer fees. While this job isn't going to cover the lawyer fees, it will go a long ways to helping get us back on our feet. Speaking of lawyer fees, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We need to come up with $1800 by next week, and $5000 by the end of Jan for the hearing. If we don't get some help soon, we'll be up shit creek.
I've been packing and cleaning all day in preparation of our trip. I am one load of laundry away from being dirty-laundry-free. I still need to do a load of dishes and vacuum downstairs, but otherwise I'm done with that. I still have to finish packing, as well as clean my office and the upstairs bathroom.
After that is done, I can begin to study for my test that is tomorrow, and finish two papers. Did I tell you NYEBoy's new boss requested him being there at 7 am tomorrow because the guy they need to talk to is half way around the world? Yeah, there is nothing I would rather do, than wake up at 6 am with a 4 year old, before heading to school all day and driving 12 hours. Fuck me coming and going.
Oh, I also have to break it to A that my other aunts dog passed away before we get in town. She's just now getting used to the idea of our other family dog passing away three weeks ago.
Oh well, there is a silver lining in there, nonetheless. I need this vacation. I need my Mom. I need my friends back home. I need my family. It's been the roughest five months of my life.
I don't have enough time, but I have a lot to be thankful for this week.
