I need a break. I dont know how or when, but I REALLY need a break not a lot, just a couple of hours just some peace and quiet time all to myself. Its been frantic both at work and home for weeks now. Every weekend is filled with sports, kids overnight, running, etc. Yesterday I started work at 6:30 a.m., worked 10 hours, went to my granddaughters T-ball game, got home at 8:00, and ended up working on-line to complete the registration for my grandsons basketball tournament, the phone kept ringing, the registration timed out a couple of times and I had to keep re-entering things, and I finally was done and got to bed at 11:00. I foolishly was looking forward to going home tonight, throwing dinner on the grill, and sitting on the deck reading a book. Until DH reminded me theres a basketball game tonight. So much for relaxing. Ill need to race home, throw dinner together, run to the YMCA, and get home about 9:30 tonight. Id skip this game, but I missed the one last week because I was out of town for work and I dont want to just skip it. Ive rarely missed one of his games and I know its so important to him that Im there for him. If theres a real reason, such as Im out of town for work like I was last week, then he doesnt mind. But for me to just not go, I think would stir up feelings of abandonment for him. Ill get some quiet time eventually. But, in the meantime, thank you all for being here to listen to me whine.
