Exhausted...

It has been about 8 forevers since I posted a meaningful, worthwhile post here, but we're dealing with a flea infestation that requires daily+ vacuuming of our 2400 square foot house and I'm currently losing 21-0 to my laundry since I have to wash pretty much everything I own every time the pest people come here to treat.  So currently, all of my clothes, 50% of my husband's and kids' clothes are in garbage bags (clean, at least!) in the back of my husband's car to keep them free of fleas and their pesky eggs. 

I hate my house.  I hate living here and I feel like I'm in prison. 

Sigh.

What're you going to do though, right?  To quote one of my favorite Disney movies, Meet the Robinsons, "Keep moving forward"...

So I am.  But I'm pooped.  Utterly, completely pooped.

But at least my kids are still adorable.  In fact, they and my dear sweet cookie making hubby are all that hold me together on most days recently.

God, I love them so much. Thank You for letting me borrow them so that my life isn't as abysmally crappy as it could be.

Ugh. I hate that you are going through this.

Children are life's sweetest blessings, aren't they. So happy you enjoy them as much as you do.

Fleas! Ugh. That happened when I was in highschool in our house. Cat. No fun at all. Okay, that's a euphemism for it sucked a$$!

Your kids are super cute, and I love the last line of your post. The borrowing part.

I have to say, you're one of my favorite people as well and I love your TN latte idea! The Jacks would have too good of a time and Spencer would probably date both girls ;)

Looks like my AWOL Christsmas Spirit has found its rightful (and righteous) home. Your trees are beautiful! Can't wait to see them for myself. The only other ego-stroke I'll hand you is that you are and ever will be a better writer than I (your $120,000 education wouldn't have anything to do with that, would it?). You will be able to publish your hilarious and sometimes poignant posts any time you wish. I'm so proud of you, baby girl; soul-sister; earth-mother; keeper of value and truth. I'll see you soon.
