Overwhelmed.

Status: Resisting the urge to go sit in a corner and rock back and forth...while humming...

It's getting a "little" crazy for me. Softball has started now, and so we have THAT on Mon, Wed and Friday, and Soccer on Tues, Thurs and Saturdays. No more "break" days. Go go go. That's what I do.

When Tennis and swimming lessons start up I'll be ready for the rubber room. And I feel physical pain now, when I fill up at the pump. 28 gallons at $3.70--twice a week--well, you can do the math. Unfortunately with the number of kids I have, we NEED the big car. UGH.

Yesterday was crazy. Apointments and craziness all day long. The baby was a trooper through it, but I have discovered a new version of Hell: being stuck in traffic with two 9 and 7-year old boys in the backseat who are trying to see who can make the best farting noises with their armpits.

THAT is hell, for sure.

Today is more of the same. Half day at school, followed by dentist appointments, then off to soccer. I need to fit a weight workout in there somewhere, too.

Well, sitting at this desk isn't getting me anywhere. Off I go! One of these days, I'll be able to breathe. Not any time soon.

Hopefully, soon they'll be old enough to ride their bikes to activities, or carpooling can happen.

Okay... I did the math and um... OUCH!! Can I just say I am SO SICK of rising gas prices and NOW we're having a food shortage? WTH is going on??

You are one brave mom allowing so many activities for your kids. I think I'd have to say ONE thing and one thing only and no more. hehehe But then, I can barely handle one child as it is. ;)

Hang in there!!

$3.70 a gallon. Sooooooooooooooo inexpensive. Try living in the UK, £1.10 a litre, almost £5 a gallon, thats about $10 a gallon. Nightmare!!!
