The Candle

The candle of my life.

I'm burnin' this candle at both ends.

Too much to do, not enough time.

The kids have had boatloads of homework this week - and they have all needed help late into the night. And I have to get up by around 6:00. Beauty sleep is a luxury that I cannot afford right now.

We are deep into the college search for TE. We visited our primary choice last week (Missouri University of Science and Technology). Next week, we visit SouthEast Missouri State, Mizzou, and Purdue. We are busy filling out applications, requesting transcripts, checking into all kinds of things, looking for scholarships, etc, etc, etc.

And the homeschool graduation committee has begun.

And my house is spiraling into squalor.

And Cupcake has been having lots of anxiety/attachment issues. She wakes up every morning and says, "I'm the baby." That's a loaded statement. You have no idea. Maybe I'll blog about that when things slow down...IF things slow down.

And then there's the normal we're busy every night activities.

On the bright side, TE got his driver's license Tuesday! On Wednesday, I took 6 less trips than I normally do on Wednesdays (30 less miles)! YEAH ME! YEAH TE!

On the down side, we had to add him to our insurance. But that's okay, because I AM A FREE WOMAN! I have HOURS at a time on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. I'm hoping to use that time to catch up on EVERYTHING.

Sorry my post is so random. I'm nearly comatose. :-)

Blessings to you,

I don't know how to say it in your language, but just take it 1 step at a time and it will just pass by. A prayer for strength and patience, lots of it. We are on the same boat plus i have additional bonus, which i am sure you are not experiencing yet.... You can do it supermom....
