I suck!

I know... I know... that's a "bad" word. I'll go wash my mouth out as soon as I am done typing this (maybe - either way, I'll tell you I did).

I'm so irritated with myself. I'm totally neglecting my blog - and the blogs I normally read religiously. I think that I've put so much on my plate, that I'm starting to get overwhelmed. I feel like I've been running around like a chicken with it's head cut off! Literally!Two friday's ago (when my mom and sisters were here) I got a NILMDTS call at 1 am (I guess technnically that was Saturday). This past Friday, I had a compass test (which I did great on), and I had a call from NILMDTS on Thursday night, when I was also with Kacey at the hospital while she was in labor. Oh wait, did I mention I didn't sleep at all that night?! Kacey had her baby at 7am Friday, and after I took all the pictures I could, I left the hospital and went to take the COMPASS test. Don't get me wrong... I'm beyond glad that I was able to be with Kacey, and I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else, but what you don't understand is that I spent ALL Friday night up as well. I didn't get a blink of sleep because Alli was up all night puking her guts out. It was awful! Luckily it was just a 24 hr. thing (in her case it was a 15 hr. thing) and Alli was better by lunch on Saturday. But, my immune system is now shot to heck due to my lack of sleep, and now I have a cold. GRRRRR. I'm so mad! Don't I know that I have a brand new baby to go see!? Argh. Why am I sick?! I can't cuddle a new baby if I'm sick! This stinks! I need to get better. I need to sleep. I need to take a chill pill. I need... I don't know what I need.

And holy crap (I know, another bad word - I'll have to invest in some bar soap) ... I just realized that I'm supposed to have Cub-scouts at my house this afternoon and I'm in charge of the activity! AHHHHHH! Will the madness never end!?

P.S. I'm putting in a garden again this year. I want to start the plants myself, does anyone know when I should be starting them... or do you have any good suggestions for books or websites that could tell me what I need to do?

Man, girl! Just having you tell me about your weekend, just wears me out! I can't imagine what you are really feeling. Hope you get better soon. Dean has been super sick the last 5 days or so, and I'm about ready to tear my hair out! I can't go anywhere when I've got sick kids and it seems like I've been stuck in my house for over 2 weeks and I've got a little cabin fever now! UGH!
Hey, good luck on the garden thingy. I too, want to start one! Here's a blog that I'm going to start following and she's from Idaho, which is great, cuz she knows our "weather" situations. Hope it helps!

busy, busy, busy! If you ever need a babysitter- just call me! Bradly would love to play with your kids! I usually plant my garden around memorial day. You have to wait until it is no longer freezing at night, or your plants will freeze and die- like a few of mine did last year. . .
