Wanted: Peace & Quiet

I seem to be experiencing an extreme amount of chaos in my life at the moment.   It seems that I haven’t been able to get off this roller coaster in a very, very long time.  
Since early November, J and I have been busy with “stuff” each and every day of each and every weekend.   I’m exhausted.   I’m sick of my phone ringing, seeing people and doing “stuff”.   I should be thankful for my life being so full, but I’m not – at least not right now.  
Instead, I’m fantasizing about staying home, unplugging my phone, turning off the lights, parking my car in the garage and staying in bed…for the next month.    
If it wasn’t for the fact that I need my job – I would.  Oh wait - I would probably need groceries too.   Hmmmm….maybe I’d be okay.  I like Kraft Dinner and my pantry is full of that stuff since that is the one thing The Boy forgot to take with him before he left for school.   Now, I wonder how my ketchup supply is…I might need to make a quick run to the grocery store first...

There is something about winter that screams for hibernation. I'd do it too, but the boys would find me and demand attention.

yes, to go into hiding, right about know, would be a good idea. Good thing that buying your own island is expensive or I would have done it already!

As you book time with your friends - book time for yourself - I do, it's the only way I get any 'me' time - I put it in my schedule! And if friends try to arrange anything _ I tell them I'm already busy.

Selfish? Maybe- Necessary? Oh, yes!

I am right there with you! Relocating is stressful and I never have any down time right now! It will get better I'm sure!
