Friday Confessions- Turn me over

I admit:
  • I'm cooked. Done. Flip me over. 
  • I'm hiding it from the kid, cause it's only Wednesday and we have 2 more days to get through this week. 
  • I'm also whining. Do not try this at home!
  • I'm sick of appointments. Evaluations for this therapy and that therapy. Language. Speech. Hearing. Sight. Lead levels. Iron Levels. Vaccinations.
  • We had a bad. Bad. BAD. B.A.D. Vaccination experience this week- but I'm too cooked to tell you about it.
  • My whining about too many people evaluating my kid, feels wrong and conflicting. But then again...
  • I'm cooked. And brain is scrambled egg. So.... I'm just going for "made it through" this week. 
  • It's not really Friday. It is Wednesday. But my brain is cooked. What's your excuse?

HANG IN THERE Shannon. From one single adoptive mom to another, it is normal to feel this way. Holidays in our home are always a little stressful and it is about this time that I am saying I am done. And then, my daughter will do or say something that lets me know it will all be OK. I know there is some symbol for virtual hugs, but I don't know what it is.

So sorry you are so overwhelmed right now. I completely relate to you. Feeling cooked with you!

Did I ever mention we got rid of the Brittany puppy?

Sometimes just making it until your head hits the pillow is success enough!

Hugs,
