Family

I really wish I had more time to do the things I'd like, but currently my life is extremely busy.

Most times I feel like a pinball bouncing from place to place, project to project, errand to errand.

I think that for the most part, I've gotten quite a bit accomplished in the past two months since my move. I've gotten my CT license and registered my car in CT. Today I turned in my NY plates. I even registered to vote in CT. And got my pass to the transfer station (dump) and lake. The sticker is on my windshield. I don't know why I am so excited about that, but I am.

At work right now a secretary is out on vacation for the week and the other secretary broke her leg and won't be back for a few weeks. I'm doing my best to hold my head above the paperwork, telephone calls, motions, solving problems as best as I can. I'm also working late and coming in early every day.

In addition to all of this, I miss my children. I have my oldest son in Beijing, China and I worry about him. My daughter is busy with her career and my youngest son is busy too. And I also miss my granddog, Kage.

I've been feeling like I have neglected this blog for the past few months because even when I'm in CT for the restful weekends I usually don't turn on my computer.

I know that things will turn around soon and that this is just a passing season in my life, but I just feel so unbelievably overwhelmed.

So I'm leaving work in a little bit and heading off to have dinner with my youngest son and to visit Kage too.

And I know that after that I will feel better.

Because there is nothing that even compares to family and I love being around them. They make me feel complete when I feel like I am being torn apart in different ways.

Do any of you ever get like this?

Oh my, yes. Sometimes life is so overwhelming. I really hope you had a wonderful dinner with your son.

All. The. Time. What ya gonna do? As I always say, you CAN do it all, just not all at once. And you've got a great excuse. You just moved! And registered. And registered again! You go, girl! It took me YEARS to give up my Maryland license and plates when I moved to this state. But love it or not, I'm a Nutmegger now!

Definitely. You're still in wind down mode from the big change you just made so that's to be expected too. And you're right - it will pass. You have a excellent attitude towards it.
