Losing It With Shannon Feist
I seriously feel like throwing in the towel today. I am trying to get my house unpacked, finish registration for school, take kids to soccer (I may end up coaching Christian's team due to a shortage of volunteers), and traveling back and forth to Pittsburgh every week while also keeping my kids from tearing our house apart. I wish I had a little of that Bewitched magic and could just wiggle my nose or some of Mary Poppins' finger-snapping abilities. Everything would jump right into place exactly where it should be and my kids would be singing and smiling as we watched with amazement. Fairytales....(Sigh). The kids will start school in one week and I haven't done any shopping, the clothes they have are disorganized and/or packed, and we will be leaving for Pittsburgh the day after tomorrow and won't be back until the evening before school starts. Am I crazy?! I think I must be...why else would I create such insanity? Did I mention that Mya got into Vasoline and smeared it all over herself, our couch, my bed...how do you clean that up? (Seriously, if you have some suggestions let me know.) I'm suppose to take Emily and Connor on a tour of their new school today before 3:00. I really just want to crawl back into bed. Yes, this is the Feist family in living color...no rose colored glass here.
