the one where she cracks

oops, i almost forgot… it’s haiku friday…

since i’m getting this up so late and a tad frazzled we’ll have to get back to the competition next week… but i will add my haiku.

overwhelmed from move

much to do in little time

she has come undone



i’m pretty sure those egg innards don’t just represent my brain. right now it feels like it is pretty much all of me pouring leaking out of that shell.

oh, and if you’re wondering what today’s holiday is. it’s stay home from work because you’re well day. and obviously i’m not celebrating.

  1. Okay-you don’t suck. i say this with all of the love in the world-not to be truly self serving. You don’t suck. How could the other person who shares the brain suck?!?!?

    Seriously though, you have been doing something right. C13 has changed so much in the past few months. He has become far more reliable and responsible. He is going to becomes huge in this move!

    A10(?) has also changed hugely since the beginning of summer! She has amazed me recently with the way she is soooooo helpful with things in the house and with my monsters!

    And S8….what to say about him? He is the comic relief for us and the great cuddlebug for you!

    So see you don’t suck!

  2. You do not suck! You have done an incredible job keeping things going while BH is away… Look at the load you are carrying and remember that moving is one of the most stressful events in life, next to death and public speaking! (and that is for in country moves, I cant imagine out of country moves.) I am sure these feelings are normal for anyone in your situation and know that you have a bunch of people around you that love you and your family.

  3. Monica,
    ok your rules for your mom don’t apply to me right? I would love to come down to your work and kidnap you. you need BREAK!
    YOU my friend do not suck , it is not possible. Let me tell you how I see you . your are a great friend always there, you are a fantastic mom who loves here kids like crazy and is teaching them to be loving people. you are always the life of the party and have a killer sense of humor you are creative I wish i was a as creative as you. You are strong one of the strongest women I know. Smart oh my word your job you took on is amazing. Brave more than anything you are brave most women would be in a ball in the corner if they were facing all that you are. Girl, you are amazing,, but being amazing doesn’t mean you have to do it all or that you can not have moments of weakness or moments that require a box of kleenex or a oh shit moment.
    Give your self a break, breath and rally the troops which is not just you and the kids rally your friends you are like me and I hate to ask for help, but you will need to.I love you and want to help
    even if it is just listening.

  4. Bwahahaha- I’ve left a comment on his blog, awaiting moderation.
    Am disappointed…where’s the sex?:P

    It ALWAYS feels like this, pre move. And it always works out in the end. Don’t be hard on yourself, just do your best and delegate the rest :o)

  5. Hang in there.. As far I can see, everything you are going through is NORMAL!!! When you’re here I’ll take you out for margharitas .. I know just the place 🙂

  6. “Undone”? Oh, M, sending a big hug to you. I’ve told you before and it’s true – I don’t know how you do it all.

    So, if the stuff doesn’t sell, it’ll be given away to Good Will or whatever, right? On to the next thing.

    And venting is such a healthy thing to do. I’m impressed that you made the time to do it. And doing it here is also healthy because it gives the people who care about you an opportunity to reach out to you.

    I’m sorry you feel like you think SOMEONE thinks you suck, and I’m sorry if you feel like you suck. It sucks feeling like that. I was skimming your post and I saw the sex warning and the “sucks” part and I was like, “Note to self, read this after work!” Imagine my disappointment!

    One of the best things my mom ever told me: This too shall pass. Hang in there.

  7. i must say i adore my friends – the old and the new. thank you guys, i’m feeling a bit better and am now just thinking about 17 hours and this garage sale will be over. only one thing i have to do for it – put out signs. can’t do it tonight. it might snow/sleet/rain and that’s not good for poster board. i’ll keep you posted. and for those of you that are big prayers my request is that the first person who shows up tomorrow comes with an insane amount of cash and offers to buy it all, house, cars, everything… it could happen. 🙂

  8. signs up,stuff is priced
    people come and people go
    ev’rything must go.

    furniture, toys, dolls
    books,and tools: make an offer.
    just lighten the load.
