Wound Too Tight

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

That's me. Can't do much physically since my knees are still swollen so the anxiety piles on. Not doing too bad with the eating - emotional eating has always had a hook in me.

Too many things coming down within the next 90 days. I've thrown a tantrum of sorts when I told my family that I would buy their plane tickets since they won't drive here for graduation. And NO! I don't care that they didn't make here last year for my niece's graduation. SHE didn't graduate Valedictorian and she isn't mine. I am sorry if it hurts her feelings - not showing up will hurt mine. I never ask them for anything, but I am insisting on this. Activity at school is picking up - my life has been a blur for the last 2 years.

With Josh accepting one university's offer while simultaneously waiting for a decision from another, I am super stressed and emotional. We will either be in central Texas for 6 months, or back to the Pacific NW beginning July 1 - or so I am told. Too damned many life changes on such a critical scale happening at the same time. And I miss my family. Most of all.

    GirlFriend, you ARE wound up tighter than one of those little planes that is powered by a rubber band.
I'll be praying for some peace in your life. You cannot let the actions (or in-actions) of others rule/ruin Joshs' graduation. if they dont make it, it is their loss, not yours.
now, the thingy about Texas/PNW, is that for your husbands work? PNW would be great if you could get there in June! we will be there in June for vacation.
Praying for you right NOW! emoticon emoticon
