Stress Level: DEFCON 2

Yes, things are crazy at home and at work.  I am venting my stress in this post, so if you don’t want to read it, just move along.  I cannot think of anything witty or interesting to say to go along with the stress-vent.

  • At work, now I am not only handling produce, I am also partially handling bakery, which I am clueless about
  • It looks like I will have a new boss soon, whom I have only met once
  • Traveling for work more than I would like
  • We are moving in a little over a month
  • Finding a house
  • L is still having potty training issues, but we have now (FINALLY) gotten a good Dr to help us figure out that it is a physical thing, not a mental one
  • R’s birthday party is next week
  • R is still coughing and waking up 2-3 times a night
  • Figuring out the details of the weeks that family is coming to visit us this year
  • Taking a graphic design course to help my ETSY business
  • Trying to keep my ETSY business going
  • Dieting for Hawaii
  • Biggest Loser contest at work
  • Getting the kids signed up for activites (swim lessons, soccer, dance, ect)
  • And the never ending housework that I cannot keep up with

Yep, that about sums it up.  I am literally counting the days until we go to Hawaii this summer.  I hope that someday I can look back on this time and laugh, but not yet.

Cross Country Relocation

Moving map

Yes, you read that right.  I accepted a new job in CT and will be relocating my family there in a few short weeks.  I intended to write about the moving experience, but so far it has just been one stress after another, which does not make for very interesting reading.

I hope that at some point soon I will have something insightful to say about moving my family away from everyone and everything we know.  Right now I can say that it is very exciting and scary as hell.
