Stressed to the Max

The last few weeks it seems that it is always something and I feel like I have NO time and I am just GO GO GO all the time. Do this, go here, be here, plan this, pay this, clean this, now now now! There is never enough time in the day. 

I have been helping Mark at work as much as I can since his secretary quit in July and it is a bit overwhelming. I wish that I could go in more often and then it wouldn't be so much work when I am there. We have been having to have our babysitter come whenever she has time, which changes weekly. So 1 week I can come in 2 days, the next week none, the next week only 1 day. This makes it very difficult when trying to stay on top of invoicing, banking, bill paying, payroll, etc. Especially when I am the only one in the office that knows how to use Quickbooks. Then, on top of that, I have my ebay store that has been doing good so I have about an hour's worth of shipping a day plus answering emails/questions to fit into my schedule. Then, add to the mix 2 toddlers who rarely nap at the same time and you have a recipe for STRESS.

 I am normally not one to complain because I am very fortunate with what I do have and it is kind of petty to complain about stuff when there could be a lot worse things to complain about. But doesn't it seem like when it rains, it pours? Last week our toilet got clogged, I mean completely clogged where no amount of plunging will unclog it. I think Gavin flushed a diaper down we have to have the rooter guy come out and fix it. We also have a huge infestation of ANTS, um EWWWW! They are swarming in my dishwasher of all places! How disgusting is that? So I have to wait for the bug guy to come. Also, our TV went out and it is just out of warranty so we have to pay to have someone come out and fix it, and last but surely not least our gas was shut off yesterday because they said we didn't pay our bill. Well I KNOW I scheduled the payment to come out, but it wasn't paid in time because BofA takes 2 business days to process. We had to be on a payment plan for our gas bill because we had a really high bill a couple months back where someone I may have left the BBQ on for a week few days. Anyways, at least I have my computer and I can catch up on some blogging. I am sitting home today (in the rain, how fitting!) and waiting for the gas man to come turn it back on so I can take a shower and do some laundry. No gas=no laundry, no cooking and no showers! 

On a lighter note, we went to Tom's Farm last Saturday. The boys had a blast. We rode the train, the carousel, ate some pizza and just enjoyed the day. My mom came with us. Here are some pictures.

  1. Noah loves the train at Toms Farms too~and I hear they have a good pumpkin patch I think I want to take him to that one.

    I am a constant stress case :( I hate it, it takes over you sometimes. I'm always seeking stress releivers. I hope it got or gets better for you :)
