Mommy Meltdowns Aren't Pretty

For the past two weeks we have been busy, busy.
Running here.
Last night, I finally hit the wall.

I could totally relate to my kiddos when they get to that point that they just have a meltdown because that is exactly what I felt like I was going to have if I didn't stop.

We had that amazing ski getaway, then came back for a wonderful visit with my brother and his family for a few days.  Throughout the last week we've had 2 lacrosse practices, 2 swim practices, 2 gymnastics practices, an Honor Society Induction Ceremony, and a gymnastics meet.  Oh and celebrated Dave's birthday too! Meanwhile I've graded a bajillion college papers, double that 5th grade papers, and completed report cards to go home next week. Of course that is while working full time and attempting to keep up with kid's homework, laundry, dishes...

You get the drift.
It's been busy around here.

So yesterday, I ended up backing out of a commitment I had made awhile ago.  I felt so guilty because I know I was letting down a few friends, but I have to confess that when I backed out, I felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulder.  Dave and I were able to sneak away and enjoy a quiet sushi dinner together and then the whole family was piled in our bed by 8 to watch a movie. 

I think I fell asleep about 15 minutes later.
I needed that!
