Doing All the Things...

So yeah. Life is sorta overwhelming at the moment.

Remember when I said tball was going great and not really that stressful this year?  Well... that's still true in a way, but tball added with work, and kindergarten, and the wrapping up of the semester for both mine and Nick's classes, and home renovations, and birthday party planning sorta results in that feeling of drowning in ALL THE THINGS. Our house is an absolute disaster and I haven't cooked dinner in lord only knows how long.  Seriously... like, did I cook last week at all?  Nope.  Not one single time.   Add in that it's allergy season and we are all feeling sorta like crap, AND the fact that my glasses broke yesterday (MY GLASSES!) and we end up in a situation where our entire household is running on steam and adrenaline and I am not exactly sure what to do about it.  I mean, beyond just keep going.

So that's what we are doing.  We are rolling with it.  I am trying my best to get home from work in time to give Henry some down time before we shuttle off to tball.  I am delegating to my TAs as much as possible for my class, I am trying to be focused with my time at work so I am as efficient as possible, but it's wearing me thin.  It's wearing all three of us thin.  I am looking forward to some things dropping off my plate, and first up is the teaching which will wrap up in two and a half weeks.  Next Henry finishes kindergarten (FINISHES KINDERGATEN!) in 28 school days.  Then... well then life sounds pretty awesome.  We officially booked our trip to Disney and will be out of town for three entire weeks this summer.  For now we will just keep going and look ahead to the days where I can maybe cook dinner once or twice a week.  Maybe next month...

For now, here is a picture of Henry from his tball game last night.  The Cardinals are 3-0!  It's an excited time.


  1. Glad to hear I'm not the only one struggling to keep up with "normal life" that everyone else seems to do no problem, or so I thought.

  2. This week has totally not been stellar in the cooking department! Thank you for making me feel a little better about that! (I think I cooked once this week!)
