Bluesday - too

When things are just too

Disclaimer: I tell you this, not for sympathy or to be cheered up, but to show that it does happen to everyone.

It gets overwhelming when things get too. You're too tired, too busy, too much housework, too many friends, too many places to drive the kids, too much on the DVR, too little ambition, too easy to ignore.

The toos are out to get you. Don't doubt it for a moment. Even if you think you've handled them all, they are lurking around the corner waiting to too you into feeling behind.

Last night I left work with a list of things to do! I was going to DO ALL THE THINGS! I even went to the bank, the went and picked up Eggs to take him for a walk with a friend. I remembered water and a bowl and the drool towel. I was on the ball! But the toos got me. The dog was too energetic, he got too excited, he pulled too much (I am too badly trained), he barked too much, it was too much of an hour. And so naturally, when I got home, I was too tired to even open the bottle of ibuprofen. I dropped to the bed with the thought of 'to hell with doing taxes'. It was another hour before the too hungry took priority over the too tired making me get up to make a sandwich. The things did not get done. The toos took hold and wouldn't let me go.

So tell me, what are your toos?

Gods, where do I start? Too much stress, too much idiocy (so much of it mine, too), too little money, too many things needing paying.

The good news is, eventually we get some of these toos knocked back into their places, wrangled back into their stalls. The hard part is not letting it become too much before its too late.

And uh, yeah, so sorry about that last paragraph. It's a bit too much, isn't it? :)

All I can say is, thank the heavens my kids are on spring break and doubly thank all the powers that be for my sister promising to take them for the latter half of the week. She may need a bottle of tequila by the time they leave, but hey, I can work with that.

Yes, eventually things become under control, and then the toos go the other way. Too inspired to do anything else!

Tequila is an excellent payment for kid wrangling! YAY YOU!! YAY SPRING VACATION!

So true, and it's something we often miss among all the toos.

Tequila, the great equalizer. :) But yes - even though it's almost over, it's bee sooo nice!
