Remember that awesome basement TV room we just barely put together? Like, not even six months ago? Yeah, it's currently being torn up after we woke up this morning to find the carpet soaking wet. We think we have a broken hose bib that leaked, but it's a holiday and we can't get a plumber in here to figure it out.
I'm seriously so stressed out right now I can barely function. Tomorrow I have to go in to the orthodontist and discuss paying for braces for two kids, Matthew has surgery coming up, I have a crown that still needs to be done and now we have a cleaning and restoration company here tearing our basement apart and we're trying to find a plumber on a holiday. Anyone else want money? Apparently I'm just passing out thousands of dollars around here for kicks. It's not awesome. :/
This is not how we planned to spend our day today. We planned a picnic and something fun out in the sun. Instead we're sitting in the house watching our brand new carpet being torn out.
Ugh. I'm trying really hard to find the happy and stay upbeat and push through it all, but some days that's hard to do. Sometimes I just want to crawl back into bed and give up on this whole responsible adult business. Lately it just feels like things have been piling on me and I'm trying to tread water and keep up, and most days I succeed, but today...not so much.
I will come back later with a happy thing. Right now I would like to take a break from adulthood for a while. That should be like, a thing. Like calling in sick to work. I would like to call in sick of being a responsible adult. Tomorrow I will happily be an adult again, but today I would like someone else to be in charge for a while. Why isn't that a thing?
