Krissie's crisis of the week is here...
My mom is pretty much the most awesome lady I know. When I grow up, if I'm half the woman she is I'll be proud, but I still need a little vent here.
She is a Christmas Fanatic, no problem there, but she works as a district manager for a major department store, so we don't see her pretty much from Thanksgiving until NYE. I usually do her decorations for her but this year we are really far behind, because of my dad, the m/c and all around craziness. We only have 2 of the Three trees she does up, and half of her decorations are in those rubbermaid boxes in the living room. I love wrapping presents, so I always do hers for her too, but I haven't started on any of them and only have a couple of mine done (read the barbie wine disaster of twenty ten). DH and I have not been doing well since the m/c either, and while we've decided to do a couples counseling session at our church to have an unbiased view help us sort out our feelings, it's not going to be until Jan. Needles to say I am feeing a little overwhelmed.
Last night my mom decided she is going to host the weekly taco tuesday dinner that she and about 9 other couples do. and guess who gets to prepare it... me. I'm gonna do a super easy menu, but I'm more freaked out about how I'm going to get the house ready, grocery shop, buy the last tree, all while taking care of my Dad, being super mom, and trying to work on my marriage.
urgh, I think I just needed to type that out, no need to respond I just needed to vent to someone. thanks for listening hot totties all around and gingerbread cookies for the PG ladies.
