Rather than my usual DWTS recap, today I am participating in Shell's POYHO.
I have been wanting to do this for a while now, but when DWTS is on I can't because my recap is on Wednesday. And I also will forget. Does that happen to you? It happens to me. All the time. I just have too much going on. Which is why I decided to do this today.
I am tired. I spend so much time in my car driving that I literally dread it. I am the taxi. I do not want that as a job. It would suck. It's draining for one thing, and people are horrible drivers. Some are okay, like me and you of course. But the rest of them just plain suck. And I just hate driving all day. It's my whole day it seems.
I never knew I could do the things I do. Make my kids go to school. It's been especially challenging this year with my Little Middle. I have had to really crack down on her. She may hate me right now, but I know what is best. She always comes back happy. It's rough though. I know how much I hated going. But I fight the good fight and get her going. It's exhausting.
I am the it person. Mom will do it. Oh she'll do it. Wife will do it. How did I get that part? I don't recall auditioning for it. I certainly didn't ask for it. It's a crummy role I tell ya. And I am worn out. I have been worn out for a very long time. Most days I can push through. It may not be easy. But I do. I cried all through Sacrament on Sunday. Literally. I could not stop. It was just that bad. I hate crying. It makes your head hurt, your eyes get all puffy, your face turns red, and if you're lucky like me you get a nice little rash on your chin. It didn't resolve anything. It did release some tension, but I decided enough was enough.
Bleeding is overrated anyway. So the next day? I was the polar opposite. I was almost commit-able. I didn't care, laughing is way better than crying any day.
I think I have a long road ahead. Growing pains too. I may choose to bleed some more. But I also might choose to go Jack Bauer.
He shoots without asking questions. Most days, I agree with his tactics. The rest...I would likely practice them. (hehe) I have to put a little humor into this post so that it is not totally dreary.
I did watch DTWS and I think Len is a big meany head! I love LOVED Maria and Derek's Triple partner dance, a Bollywood style Samba that was spunky and cute. Len, of course, hated it. I think Carrie Ann and Bruno gave them at least 9's but maybe 10's. Old curmudgeon Len gave them an uncalled for SEVEN! What a butt! Still they are safe and onto the semi-finals! Yippeee. They had a double elimination this week: Roshon and Chelsie--aww poor kid hung his head like a kicked pup. And Melissa and Maks. IT WAS HER BIRTHDAY!!!!
What is weighing heavy on your mind. Poor your heart out, and link up with Shell!
