recipe for emotional disaster

A recipe for emotional disaster...

Ingredients:
PMS
youngest child starting Kindergarten tomorrow
oldest child starting first ever full day of school this week
coming home from the high of a wedding weekend with my family
husband enduring chemo again tomorrow
over 1500 miles of road time in 10 days.
weight gain
contemplation of re-entering workforce after 3 years

Directions: Simply combine all at once in one thirty-something woman.

Results: Unexpected waterworks scattered throughout the day. Will make enough to serve several hours.

KEEP BELIEVING

  1. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Hang in there!

    And several of those ingredients are suspiciously familiar to me. Did you take my recipe and tweak it? :)

  2. OY. Good thoughts are on their way.

    That recipe needs some chamomile or possibly something stronger.

    Good luck Angie!

  9. Yep. All the ingredients are there for a big 'ol breakdown. One breath at a time, friend.

    I'm praying for you tonight, and for Brian and the boys.

    Much love.

  12. Oh. My. Gosh.

    You need:

    1. Chocolate.

    and

    2. Prayers.

    You can count on me for the prayers. Can you find someone to bring you chocolate?

  13. well, I'd say your emotional disaster is well deserved. I on the other hand have none of that going on this week and seem to be alternately crying my eyes out and laughing at myself. go figure.
