Too much on the plate right now, some good, some decidedly bad. Don't worry, we're all fine. But our dream house is sort of becoming our nightmare house. And Annie seemed to have fooled us about how easy it was to transition to adolescence...because it is turning out to be far more challenging with Gray. Being his teacher and his mom feels more than I can handle at the moment. I just need a little time to regroup, to figure out how I can do better for Gray, to do all we can to keep this house from literally crumbling around us. And I also have a very special guest to prepare for (though I hope she won't just turn and run when she sees first-hand the chaos that is our lives right now).
I envy those you who seem to handle all the five million things going on in your lives and yet still manage to blog. I think that accepting that I'm not one of those people is a step in my striving for balance though, so I'm just going to take this short break. In the meantime, I hope to pop in on your blogs here and there when I can, because that truly is a pleasure I don't want to give up entirely.
See you soon.
