This has been a very difficult month, to put things lightly. In my own little bubble there has been a constant stream of annoyances and inconveniences, which I can always move past. However, as I watch many friends and family members say goodbye to loved ones, struggle with illnesses and navigate terribly uncomfortable stages of life, I'm not too out of touch to empathize with them. I'm not so far removed from the gut wrenching, nerve-racking feeling just shy of paralysis (paralysis in fear) that precedes an ironclad resolve to flip the switch and handle business.
The funny thing about the fight or flight response is even though you'd like to fly, you know you've got to stand firm and fight. I just thank God we don't have to fight alone!

I was on a roll with posting regularly and then life happened! Ridiculous amounts of homework, extra long work days for my hubby (translation: extra long work days for me), mounting chaos in the domicile (let's just say, I've lost my Domestic Goddess tiara) and a plethora of other "stuff" has pretty much drained me and any reserves that I had stockpiled. I can barely even form and remember a complete thought. I'm not sure if it's lack of sleep (Baby Girl is still NOT sleeping all night O_o), excessive weight --My bone thin, rancher dad likens obesity to carrying a 50-lb sack of cattle feed around with you all day--or a combination of both. What I do know is: I need a break. I need to refuel/recharge. I need a smallish, rotund nanny/housekeeper with a British accent to whip this camp (self included) into shape.
Somebody, anybody, everybody……SCREAM!
