Frazzledness

I don't even know what to title this post...I'm frazzled beyond belief at work, feel like I've been running my butt off all week. I'm testing, working on budget, writing evaluations, dealing with staff issues, making up minutes with speech kids.....pressure pressure pressure! I've been up the last 3 nights with our little puppy with the seizures. I really think his seizures have something to do with his body temperature not being able to stay regulated. Plus we have to bottle feed him about every 2-3 hours, which makes for a long night. He cries something terrible all the time. I finally couldn't take it this morning and got up at 5am, picked him up out of his basket and snuggled with him on the couch until he got warmed up. I'm trying to work on a "budget" for Trenton & I at all. We've said no major purchases until July unless absolutely necessary. No clothes, movies, nothing. Trenton thinks we could realistically build in 3-4 years, but we need to get some others things out the way first, cars, student loans, etc. I'm all about shopping and all, but in the long run, building our dream house is worth giving up a few shopping sprees. This also means working somewhere this summer for me, but I can deal. BUT...all in all, I think I'm handling it pretty well. I bawled my eyes out at Grey's Anatomy last night, I blamed it on the super emotional episode, but it probably had more to do with my frazzledness than anything. It's FRIDAY! We're playing cards with Amee & James tonight, I'm eating lunch with my sister and Myra tomorrow as well as stocking up the pantry with necessities from the Dutchmen's store, and we're having dinner with the father-in-law on Sunday. Plus, I'm getting a new stove (FREE) this weekend with 5 burners and a flat top! Super excited about that!

And...now you know why some kids end up in their parent's bed. They can't take it anymore:) Good luck with the budget/building dreams. Have a great weekend!

How did you snag a free stove and how can I get one. Hang in there with the buget stuff, Steve just payed off his student loan last year. It was a very happy day.
