topsy turvy...


is how i am feeling today. you know when you are all mixed up and it seems like nothing is going as planned and instead of graciously accepting that change you fight it with all your might. that is topsy turvy. actually, i am really in the mood to chuck it all and run away to the bahamas, live on the beach and catch my own food to eat. it has been one of those weeks. but i don't think the bahamians would take to an english bulldog using the beaches as her potty. whatever...
so as not to bore you with my whining (too late, you say? well, too bad) i will give you the cliffs notes version of my week.
1. the mysterious smell that we had under the house wasn't just the dead possum, it was also a busted sewer pipe. use your imagination.
2. there was no show and tell thursday last week because all i got to "make" was dinner. and who really wants to see a picture of a pork chop?
3. aunt flo is visiting, hence the whining and attitude.
4. david's bridal actually had the EXACT skirt i was trying to order - but they said they didn't have it and i had to order another - in the clearance rack for fifteen dollars. i love paying full price when the discounted item is actually sitting on the rack twenty feet away.
5. my computer decided that the companies that i process payrolls for didn't have to pay any federal taxes last week. and i didn't catch it until this week.
6. my mother and i have had 2 huge arguments in 3 days. the joys of being a parent caregiver will be reserved for another day. probably when i return from the bahamas.
7. i am frustrated with myself for not handling all this junk better.
8. i was a dummy and totally hurt a friend's feelings by being selfish.
9. i have not been doing anything i was supposed to (walk, food journal, etc.) this week for my journey to health. i think i am at a rest stop. with really nice bathrooms and good vending machines.
10. my sister is going through a difficult time and i can't be there to help and i am not sure what to say to make her feel better. so i feel like a bad sister.
pity party over. thanks for coming. there are no party favors - unless you are interested in an overpriced bridesmaid skirt.
be brave, friends...

Oh, you deserve some serious "ME" time with a cherry on top.
I think you win for crappiest week. I had a run on it there for a while, but you get the blue ribbon.
Take care of yourself!

I'm sorry you've had such a rough week. If you need a Bahama companion, I'm your gal!! Hang in there and remember, this too shall pass!

Oh sweetie, I just saw this. Are things any better? I get days like that too where I just want to run away and forget all reponsibilities.

Haggai 2:4 (Today's New International Version)
4 But now be strong, Zerubbabel,' declares the LORD. 'Be strong, Joshua son of Jozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people of the land,' declares the LORD, 'and work. For I am with you,' declares the LORD Almighty.

I was wondering if you got the fat quarters I sent last week or so for the fat quarter swap. I hope you like them! I can't wait to see what you send. hint hint
