The Usual End-of-Quarter Freak Out

Papers due, finals to study for, group projects to finish and only two and a half weeks to get it all done.


Just found out Mother-In-Law will most likely be arriving early in June.  Like at the end of finals week.  OMG THE HOUSE IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING CLEAN!!!  And the yard, ay-yi-yi.  It is a complete and total disaster.


Daughter is failing science and, because I am an idiot, the penalty for failing science is going to summer school.  Every weekday for six weeks.  To which I have to drive her to and from.  Early in the morning.  In the summer.  ARGH!  This whole being a responsible parent thing sucks big hairy ones sometimes.  I sure hope she can get her act together in the last five weeks of school that is left.


I am now going to call a housecleaner, arrange for yardwork to be hired out and have a nervous breakdown.  Thank GOD Dad is visiting this weekend because he can keep Grandmother happy and entertained so I can get all this other shit done.  Cracking the whip on husband and kids starting NOW....

Your daughter is failing because you are stupid?

I don't understand.

You are totally on the right track with the housekeeper and the gardener! Hell, if you can swing it financially, I say hire, hire, HIRE!!! It's not like you're sitting on your ass, eating bon-bons all day and can do it yourself. Your schedule is pretty jam-packed, so I wouldn't feel any guilt if I were you about hiring someone (or a crew!) to help. Afterall, you can't give the MIL anything to tsk-tsk about ;-)

Glad you finally know when mom-in-law will be in town so you can start planning your summer. Although how is a road trip going to work if she is failing science? And why is she failing science? She is no dummy. Maybe grandpa needs to give her a thwack this weekend when he sees her. :)
Tell her to watch out!

I'll send Baby Boy over, his lawn care business is starting to boom already and he may not have room for you if you wait to long. ;-)

Relax! It's summertime!

Oh, I just hate it when all the craziness descends at once! Good luck getting through it all to some peace.

You're going to need to teach me how to do all that soon...I feel for you, though. Crazy busy.
