It's no wonder I'm nuts

So I had to spend all day trying to find the bottom of my daughter's room.... I've done this time and again, but it always ends up back the same way. I'm not sure who to be angriest at...her for trashing the place, or myself for letting her do it, over and over.... or maybe I should be ticked off at myself for buying her so much crap in the first place. That's probably the biggest problem.... Oooh, I know! I'll blame her dad for buying her stuff.... And Grandma! Yeah! It's all their fault!! Oh, I feel much better now.

How is this helping??

Why does the cat insist on getting into every box I open up? He's such a crazy thing.... I tried to get the dog to eat him, but she's far too nice for that.

Although I think she was considering it, given the way he must have smelled at this point....

Yay Yay YAY!!!!

Oh, I am so happy happy happy!! My computer is working again! The wierd thing is, the friend I took it to couldn't find anything wrong... so he just gave it back. So, I plugged it in, said a prayer, and WOW!! It works. I don't know why, but I'm not going to question good fortune.

The Sun is Shining!!

Perhaps this will lift my spirits! I can certainly use a bit of that.

Today is a busy homeschooling day, with a few projects going on, but I also am meeting my sister and another gal for coffee (not because I have time for that, but because this gal could really use some support, and I think that is an awfully important reason to go!)

The house is looking horrid, but, I think, progressing. We'll see if I'm actually ready for the Realtor this weekend.

Gotta run - need to shower if I am not going to embarrass myself at the espresso bar!

Today I am wondering....

...among other things, if anyone is ever going to start reading my blog. Sure, it's dull, sure it's boring... but c'mon!

I need to try harder... make this blog about something. It's supposed to be about my little family of three moving across country... the good, the bad, and the ugly of that whole life situation. So far, it's really just the ugly. Well, and the bad. My husband is already gone, 2500 miles away (give or take) and I am still here, trying to work and homeschool our daughter and get the house ready to sell. Now, if I was a normal person, that wouldn't be too bad.... like most of you women who basically always have a fairly presentable home, and could just give a shout to your realtor to list the puppy....but I am so not normal. My home is somewhere between "hoarder" and "crazy cat woman" (altho I only have one's the insane mess that I'm referring to). I break into tears on a daily basis as I look around my house and see anew the stuff I need to deal with! Each time I think I've accomplished something, I open another closet door, or walk into a room my daughter has tornadoed through, and think crap, I will never ever get out of here and to my husband.

Is there anyone else out there like me who is a giant disaster, or am I, somehow... broken??

That's all I have to say. Between trying to get caught up on our school lessons (since we didn't work while we visited Virginia) and trying to get the house sale-ready..... urgh. My head hurts.

Another day, another crisis

I am home, and the trip was great.... then the next morning my computer crashed (I'm blaming my daughter, as she was on it typing at the time, and says "something came up, and I clicked on it, then it quit working." ??? Who knows. So, I won't be on here much for awhile, as I don't know when I will get it fixed..... so much other stuff to do in the meantime, like clean, and pack, and move.... and try not to slip back into that depression that threatens to suck me in.....

Visiting Virginia

Well, tomorrow afternoon my daughter and I fly out to visit what will soon be our new home! We are so looking forward to spending a few days with daddy! I'm looking forward to not having to work on the house for a few days!

I need to go finish packing - I will post some pictures when I return!

February already??

Practically unbelieveable! Where does the time go?? This month marks the last month I have to prepare my house to list for sale. I told my realtor I wanted it on the market March 1st. (I knew I needed a deadline or I would procrastinate forever!) I think it's do-able... okay, you have no idea how cluttered my house is!! But I think I can, I think I can.....

The Girl and I head out this Thursday to go visit Daddy in Virginia!! Yay!! We are totally excited. I hope the weather is nice, but it doesn't really matter. As long as it's good enough that our plane can land; that's all I really care about!

Now I just have to do laundry, and pack, and clean..... and stuff that homeschooling in there somewhere..... it never ends. : )
