Critters For Sale

It's not exactly a secret that the last part of Summer has been a little rough for the Critters and me. They and I were completely ready for a ROUTINE. I kept telling myself that if I could just make it until last WEDNESDAY (that glorious first day of school) that I would be OK. So I clung to that like the rail at the top of a sinking Titanic.

Wednesday came, as it always does....and I did get a break for a good chunk of the day. But come 3:30, the chaos ensues, even worse than before. WHAT THE?

After cancelling movie dates, playing with friends, clearing the house of all candy and banning dessert UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, and pondering a bit about what could be causing this severe misbehavior that no punishment seems to correct, I think I've finally figured it out!

They're not bored, they are not ill-raised, they have not lived in a jungle the last 5 years. They are ANXIOUS, and a bit STRESSED, about the impending move and the fact that we don't have concrete dates yet.

...kinda like me...

We don't have any control at this point. All we can do is wait, and it's making us all a little, teeny, tiny bit, nuts.


  1. Sydney for SALE? LOL
    Love, love, loving that green shirt we both got that day! :)

    You're totally right. It's kind of like knowing someone is about the pull the rug out from under you, and waiting for it to happen. Hopefully your relocation is confirmed very soon and you'll be able to fill in all the missing pieces to the puzzle.

    It will be great for the kids (and YOU) when they know exactly what is going to happen and when. Hang in there!

  2. awwww but they're such cute critters! how much for all 3?

    and i hope that for your sake you get a routine soon! mama needs a break!! i love and miss you guys!

  3. Kids seem to act up when they are missing their Daddy or not spending enough time with him. Mine get that way if D has a busy week at work. Can't imagine what it's like after months of saying goodbye EVERY week! ((hugs))!

  4. CRAZY..when do you find out! I hate limbo!
