Drinking

It's the end of GST and tax season...even though I haven't literally filed for a number of my clients....I've been told it's a glich in the system and I have until May 6th.....I freaking hope so.

Until then....I'm headin on my second bottle of wine....oh be quiet...I deserve it!

Oh and did I mention...my fil is moving into "extended care" tomorrow...wish us luck!

Coming to an end

A memorial yesterday, two dance classes and a family dinner today, soccer tryouts and a soccer wind-up party tomorrow....and this is the last weekend before taxes are due.

Will she make it?

Barely.

TMI....

...I know, but....

I've had the runs for a week and a half...morning and night...when should I start to worry?

It's great for the mid-rif though!

Another catch-up!

Here once again in point form....is my life as of late.

  • Krystina's jazz group one 3rd place for her division - she's 8 in a group of 10 year olds - she did phenomenal!
  • We'll be heading to a memorial this Friday.
  • My fil had 6 teeth removed last week.
  • And has a corn between his toes.
  • He turns 88 this Tuesday.
  • Aleks is making my hair curl.
  • Tax season has been very "taxing" as of late....I cannot fricken wait till this month is over....I may just jump off a bridge in the meantime.
  • I've settled on my "next new car"....a Ford Flex....reeeeaaaaalllly loving them!...I had to look into a new car as the possibility of my van running a $5,000.00 bill is very near.
  • Thankfully the dog isn't.
  • Soccer season is over and I've already spent $460.00 on "next season".
  • My nights are twisted....so much so that I don't look forward to going to bed.
  • I did get out tonight, to craft...it was therapeutic...until my stomach started to "rumble".
  • May 1st is my promise to myself to get back in the gym and lose 10 lbs by July 8th...the significance?.....it's hubbies b-day and he says he's joining me. "May 1st" is also the first day after this "hell" I live each and every year at this time.....
  • I'm so done with childish "so called adult" head games.....seriously I don't have time, nor do I have the strength...I deal with enough shit.
  • I've said it before, I'll say it again....the child that I thought would cause me the most headache....is truly coming 'round and being someone he once used to be.....it's good that most do "come around" again....I guess I'll have to go through this a few times.
  • So there you go....no real time to play around with the camera, or scrapbooking, or working out....dinner's have been quick and easy....well except for the pot of "mussels"...but they didn't turn out very well...probably because I was rushed.
  • Looking forward to listening to my iPod again in the gym...no...really.
  • Oh, Al is looking to buy an iPad....I've heard about it over and over and over and over and over....and over...again.
  • I'll be working tomorrow....again....and the next day...and the next day. Hmmmm.....I wonder when I'll plant that garden?!?!....perhaps when I retire.

A little sigh....

....so Tony's 89 year old uncle passed away peacefully last night.

The weekend was absolutely stunning.

Even got some sun in.

Soccer tournament ruled the entire two days....

We won, we won, we tied, we lost.

Krystina was voted "most improved player".

I burnt my tongue on tea...badly.

Met up with an old friend and his wife after 25 years....very cool!

Took a drive in the 'Stang.

Kissed my husband.

Wiped some tears.

Worried a little (Teddy went on an 11 hour hike).

Lived and loved....and of course always stressed.

Still waiting....

...so we visited with Tony's 89 year old uncle on Tuesday...basically said our "good bye's"...we were told it could be that night....still haven't gotten the news...I don't do well with that.

Last night I tossed and turned from about 12:50 on...needless to say I'm tired...and yet, suffering from major anxiety...and stress (another story). Up at 7...still up now and up again at 7...hopefully not before!

I feel so selfish!

I took my fil to the dentist to day...he had 6 teeth removed (bottom front).....that's a chore in itself....thankfully my good friend brought me some "home-made" soup to take to him tomorrow....she basically "saved my butt".

I have enough shit going on...I really don't need to deal with anything else...

When is "tax season" over?

It's very hard...

....waiting for a loved one to die....very hard.

More "stuff"

My nose has sores and keeps bleeding...all a result of bad allergies....yes, I'm still suffering.

It's hard to see someone die...no matter who it is. Tony's uncle of 89 years is in his last days and we went to visit today....it was hard.

My fil is going to get 6 teeth removed on Thursday....I'm taking him.

My kids are keeping me busy...and bankrupt.

My work is just about throwing me over the edge....I'm trying to keep it together.

I still haven't been able to get back to the gym....it's something I really don't want to do...but really NEED to do.

Life is too short...and stress makes it shorter....I should learn from this.
