Greetings from Land of Stress.
Here in my world stress is a constant. Stress motivates me and keeps me going for the most part. A consistent flow of stress is good for me. I get up every morning early and get my kids off to school, pick up my house and work my job of nursing.
At present, I have been hit by the Katrina version of stress. Now, I can barely drag my fat ass out of bed because I can't sllep well at night. I no longer even ask if Cooper has put on deoderant or brushed his teeth, even though the yellow glow illuminating from his mouth would suggest those teeth have not seen his toothbrush in days. My house is beyond gross and I don't even care. And my poor patients are thankfully being seen by my LVN, but the paperwork is piling up on my very unorganized desk with no effort being made to change that coming in on my part.
As I sit behind my computer and become Jill jill bo bill, all that stress goes away and I laugh and joke and become my "normal" self. I want to somehow thank whoever invented the idea of blogging, my sister Amelia Bedelia for MAKING me do a blog, and you guys who read me and enjoy it. Without this blog, my family would have changed the locks and I would be living under a bridge in a cardboard box, wearing dirty ragged clothing, pushing around a hijacked Walmart shopping cart and talking to myself.
Without going into details about my company for the fact that it could jepordize the lawsuit I have had to file, my life is about to drastically change. I say this as not a "good bye", but instead a "Does this woman EVER get off this blog" plan. I know I am a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend when my world is not tilting drastically on it's axis. Blogging keeps it in balance for me.
Lucky for my husband, I usually do most of my blogging at night and come to bed happy. My husband says, "A happy blogger is a good lay" and will probably get a Tshirt that says so.
Speaking of Tshirts, join us over at Don't Judge This Book By it's Cover for the great contest for a FUNNY tshirt.
And while you are at it, to cheer me up and help me not go scan the parking lot at Walmart looking for a nice basket model, click on my crown link and vote for me for Drama Queen. You will be in my court of royalty and the perks will be enormous.
Since this post is so NOT funny, I encourage you to go to this and read the story J'ollie and I did in the comments. It will make you smile. I promise. Plus, Navpress is wanting illustrations for the publication and Stephen Spielberg has called for a movie deal. Really.
Now go vote, then go read. Please.
