{the weekly rewind}

i am weakWow.

That’s really the only word I can think of to describe this past week.  And not because we were busy….although we definitely were…but because this week brought with it a myriad of emotions ranging from pure glee to absolute rage.

I can honestly say that I’m glad it’s behind us.

Monday Husby drove down to pick up our daughter who had been with her dad for almost 7 weeks for her summer “visit”.  And that evening we ended up having dinner with my parents.  It was one of the most emotional days I’ve had in quite a while.  This particular day is where the “rage” came in.  Long story.

The rest of the week we tried desperately to get ourselves back into something that might resemble a routine.  Pretty much failed at that one.  This summer we have had a hard time living a structured life.  It seems so hard to do when you hit those “lazy” days of summer.  We’ve gone swimming, played outside, watched movies, visited friends and family, slept in and stayed up late for the past 2 months.  And while all of that has been enjoyable, I can feel it starting to wear on me.

This mama craves structure and routine and going for too long without those things starts to make me feel a little bit crazy.  I start making up silly reasons to write lists just so that I can have something to cross off!  Someone please tell me I’m not the only one!

I’m really looking forward to starting school again in a couple of weeks.  And I have a lot planned in between now and then.  Surprisingly though, oldest daughter told me that she’s not really looking forward to starting school.  I think it’s because of the staying up late and sleeping in every morning……she doesn’t want to give that one up.  But who can blame her?  😉

I was able to get to the drugstores this week to do some shopping.  But it ended up being a not very exciting trip.  I picked up some really cheap razors and electric toothbrushes…..but that was the most thrilling deal I came home with.  The rest was kind of ho-hum.

Hopefully I’ll have more details to report next Sunday.  So for the lack of them this week……I’m just trying to keep my head above water over here.

Still here,
