Point blank: I've been shirking in the blog department. When I started my blog, I challenged myself to write a post every day--but I have to say that lately, what with all the craziness of the house buying/selling/packing/cleaning/panicking/and, as of tonight, fighting--my blog has been sub-par.
I think the stress of the moving situation has finally broken me down:
Exhibit One-Tonight Don and I got into a fight which we rarely do. I had spent the entire day cleaning and packing to make our house "open house worthy" and Don didn't acknowledge it when he got home. I was very "fragile" at dinner and let everything he did or didn't say upset me to the point where I was crying and hyperventilating. I'm ok now, but my eyes will be swollen for days...
Exhibit Two--I'm not proud to admit this, but I forgot to pick Gooser up at school today. His schedule is part half day and part full and I guess I had it in my head that it was a full day (when it wasn't) and was so focused on the packing that I was oblivious. His teacher called about 15 minutes after pick-up time and was like "Was he supposed to go home with someone...?" And I was like OMG! and went racing over. Gooser seemed fine but I felt awful.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is that I feel like my blog might be kind of makeshift (just like this one I'm writing now!) until things calm down around here--and also I want to apologize for not making the blog-rounds lately. I really enjoy reading and commenting on blogs, but since the majority of my time and energy are being sucked up my the house situation--I just haven't been able to. I will be back in business soon though.
Small real estate update: Mr. Howell did sign the contract, so that's one less thing to worry about, and tomorrow is the house inspection. Our house will go on the market next week so wish us luck!
I need to go sleep off my crying jag now...
