No Time for a Title

Oh my poor neglected blog.

If I could just give you one brief glimpse of my past week I know you'd all faint from exhaustion, or boredom, so I'll spare you, except to say it was really that tiring because trying to fit in working two part-time jobs without a break in between, keeping up with the house work, cooking and grocery shopping, being a newlywed and a step-mother to a child with behavioral issues (which for the first time in 3 years we had to deal with an issue directly relating to my supervision of him - and after much tweenage angst there was a positive break-through), and fitting in my wonderful Christmas present - a year membership to the gym, I had a melt down.

I guess I should have seen it coming.

Sometimes it is difficult for me to let go of trying to be a perfectionist in all I do. So I'm working on it. And I'm letting my family help because I don't have to do everything myself.

So that's where I've been.

Now I have to run.

I hope you have a wonderful 3-day weekend.....and be blessed.

I was just wondering about you today - sounds like you have been burning the candle at both ends - glad you're learning to delegate!

Kristen has had so many hard times with her stepson. Since the divorce, he has been with his mother, who is really pathetic. He's really the collateral damage in this whole mess.

Sounds like you have been right where you have been most needed. Take a good nap sometime this weekend!

Linds said...

Hey, kind to yourself too! And tell us how the gym is going!

Take a nap, bubble bath, or take time to sit down a read a good book,like the one you loaned my wife. It finally became my turn to read "Marley & Me". It's been great so far. Thanks.

Melt down signals that you are trying to do too much even with help!! Sometimes it's sooooo hard to figure out what is crucial in the middle of what is important. Please take care of yourself, the rest will still be there when you get back to it!

Oh, my, have I been there and done that! Step parenting is all that and a bag of chips, but you can do it!!!!! I'm glad you had a positive breakthrough and so soon! Really, sometimes it takes a long time!!!

Being both the mother and stepmother, I sometimes felt sorry for my kid's stepmother. :)

I was just going to stop by and not leave a comment, since I came here from someone posting the pic of the "I want to be like mommy when I grow up" and laughed so much, I then checked out your blog.

So, instead of just looking and leaving, I'll say "Hi! I stopped by!"

I feel lame now, laughing!
