I've been very offline lately.  Way too much Real life going on.  You know the saying, "I try to take one day at a time, but lately several days have ganged up on me!"  (April was Autism Awareness month, and Easter, so there were several things there.)

Some of the stresses/excitement:

Shelby
The flu, causing the sinus infection, causing the ear infections, causing the vertigo and pain, causing the migraines, repeat ad nauseam
Trying to get in to the doctor, who had a swine flu case there that day
Shelby
Anemia
low protein
Shelby
Tornadoes!
Hail Damage!
Shelby
The Walk for Autism
The Bounce for Autism
Shelby
Getting a speeding ticket
Driving school
Shelby
Getting a speaker for the Appreciation Dinner
The Easter Egg Hunt for Autistic Children
Shelby
Dental check up appointments for everyone
A cavity!
Getting Shelby's dental records found and forwarded
Mat and his school burnout
Mat and his money problems
Shelby
Thomas and finals
Thomas getting a job
Shelby getting a job
The dogs being way overdue for heartworm, rabies, etc
THE SHEDDING SEASON!
Shelby being cruel to the animals

More Shelby

Repeat, ad nauseam.
More details will follow

A friend of mine gave me an excellent idea, but you have to do some prep, so this is more for the next "want to kill someone" day.

In pie pans, freeze plate-sized sheets of ice. Voila, dishes anyone can afford to break, and no sharp invisible shards to look for!

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

Now don't get me wrong, I love a good celebration as much as the next fellow.  But we've been visiting and/or celebrating something almost continuously since Nov.  23. 

The scary description: )

Suzette Hayden-Elgin says there really ought to be a word for those holidays that aren't really holidays, especially for the women who spend the whole time cooking and cleaning and refereeing.

Anyway, yesterday and today I've a REAL holiday.  The kind where you get to sleep to noon, read and drink tea all day, eat junky snacky food, and just pretend there's no other world, and in the evening have wine and your darling . . .

(yes, this is monster-puppy)

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it,
piss on it and walk away.

Life is a bundle of little things,
and the string is always coming untied.
