Planning my week...busy busy...fits

Matt keeps saying he will help take the stress off of me...but I honestly don't know how to relinquish. Some of the stuff is because in the past when I did relinquish things happened from little mistakes and I just don't want to risk those mistakes. My husband is wonderful and helps so much around the house so I have nothing to complain about, but right now with Braden's medical and just all around things I feel so overwhelmed. Today I sat down to plan out my week......

Monday I will be at the school all day probably taking the kids in and catching up Brittney's teacher, then taking Braden to class his teacher left as of Friday to have her baby so there is a sub and with all his issues I want her to be caught up luckily he does have an aide with him Tiffani who is wonderful but I also have to update her! Then the school nurse because she will also have to give some of Braden's supplements. Then have a meeting with vice principle/special ed director to update them make sure they know what Braden can do at school, cant do and can and cant have as far as allergies go. I will have to consult with the janitors on cleaning ingredients because Braden is allergic to so many we have found out. I figure this will take all morning and the valentines party for Braden's class starts at noon and Brittney's at 1:00 so I figure Monday is at the school. After school Braden has a doc appointment and speech. Also have to follow Matt sometime to take the van into the shop.....drove all the way to Arizona and back no problems...get home yesterday it breaks down fuel pump has went out on it...we were definitely being watched over on our trip. Going to cook a nice dinner for Valentines Day and give kids their presents..Matt is on call this week so we are going to have a private celebration tonight after kids get in bed for our Valentines.

Tuesday I have to go into the law office the secretary said my inbox got so full she had to get a box and start putting my work over into it, ugh so going to be lots of catching up to do on that front. Usually I can do my work from home I pick it up and bring it home and it takes a few hours but after missing 3 weeks I am afraid of all that will be behind because nothing is done on those cases unless I do it including important deadline issues...yet another stresser. I also have two other attorneys I do freelance work for and both have work for me that of course needs done right away. Braden will have speech and Brittney basketball practice.

Wednesday I have to go to town to do some shopping my SIL and BIL are renewing their vows (they hate each other and fight all the time but SIL (who is also nuttier than a fruit cake) didn't have a real wedding first time so after 4 years of marriage and two kids under 3 has decided she wants one so is spending money they don't have and throwing a terribly tacky wedding (example she is wearing a black and purple lace dress down the aisle..enough said) on the 26th) anyway I need something to wear to the blessed event..(eyes rolling..LOL). I also am working on Brittney's costume for her rise and shine program at school on the 25th where she is to dress as a book character she is going to be the Cat and the Hat have to find the hat.

Thursday and Friday are not yet planned I do have to call the dentist this week and get in to get my crown permanetly put on as my appointment was suppose to be last week but of course we were gone and my tooth is really bothering me and I will have to plan some more time to do some of my paralegal work. Braden will have speech Thursday and another doc appt on Friday so Thurs and Friday will fill up soon enough. Also totally adjusting the way we eat and it takes time to plan menus make sure lunches are healthier need to go around town find some more organic shopping places and so on.

And with the above I also have to do the mail, bills, medical, work, the basic household things....I know that Matt is willing to help but I honestly fear cleaning up the mess more than the stress of doing it myself. It's me not him, I know that, I have to learn to let things be a different way than the way I perceive that they need to be done....I just have to get that mentality into my head and live with it and so far I cant quite get to that point, until then I will just vent about being busy busy!
