My batteries need to be changed, I think. I feel like I'm running down.
Nothing bad is going on. I'm quite fortunate that life is really pretty good. Still, I feel like the batteries are dying. My play is in two weeks. I've never had all the kids come to the rehearsals at the same time. One of them told me she didn't have her script because she lost it in her room and she is too lazy to look for it. Yes, that is what she told me. Know what I told her? Find it! She got my last copy of the script and I'm not making another just because she doesn't feel like looking for it.
I've got two school papers due. One in December, one in January. That really isn't a problem. The problem is we will most likely be moving during those times. Moving in the middle of the semester makes getting homework done and papers written difficult.
Speaking of moving.... where are we going? Somewhere in Virginia. When are we going? I don't know. Some time in December. How's that for planning?
We lived in Hawaii for almost 5 years. There is a lot of wonderful things there to miss, but for the most part, I don't think about it much. Tonight we were visiting with a Hawaiian local that is here visiting family. We heard her sing in Samoan. She fed us! We realized how much we miss that island and the beautiful people on it. The culture, the food, the kindness. It isn't the beaches or palm trees we miss. It's the people we miss. Too bad this upcoming move can't take us back to Hawaii.
Sigh. OK, that's enough of that. Like I said, things aren't really bad, but I feel worn down. Among other things, I'm concerned about not knowing where we are going, the kids school, saying goodbye to friends and hoping that wherever we go there are people as kind as the ones here. I need a hug. I need someone to hug me and tell me everything will work out just fine. I'm sure it will, but the hug would be nice anyway.
Things will be better Monday. The kids will be back to school and I will be able to enjoy a little more peace. My goal is to have my two papers for school finished before we leave and with everyone home for the Thanksgiving holidays, it's been hard to concentrate.
