Adventures of Motherhood

I am a harried mother of three kids who move at light speed and a husband who lives in a world of words. If that isn't enough, I teach in an elementary school as I slowly watch my hair turn gray.

Stressed Out!

Hi Everybody,

Feeling a little stressed out. Zach is in the "feeling sorry for himself" phase of the broken leg saga. It's not fair (which I agree) and nobody understands what he is going through (I don't agree!)

My mom was home less than 24 hours from the hospital when my dad had to rush her back by ambulance. I worry so much and there is nothing I can do. I just can't go to Montreal right now. Between Zach, work and Zach's Bar Mitzvah there is just no way that I can go right now.

Carmi's dad isn't well right now either. So it's worry all around.

Everyone says things come in threes but I think we are going into double digits!

But I am trying to think positively, so I wish all of you a wonderful week. May the little moments brighten your days.

You have every right to be stressed - but I hope the reasons for it will fade away soon.

Hope things calm down soon...I will send my prayers to your family...keep us posted on how your mom is doing and Carmi's dad...
The only thing I can add is that when it's ALL happening at once..as life seems to enjoy throwing it at us ... one small thing does console me...I love the saying ''THIS TOO SHALL PASS''...funny enough, It does...maybe not at that very moment but it always does, so reminding me of that sure helps lol.

I guess it's true when they say " when it rains it pours" Will keep you and your extended families in my thoughts and prayers.

Just know you're not alone and I'll be thinking about you and the family. (BTW, Trying to plan a Bar Mitzvah myself.)

It's times like these that I hate being a grownup. Everything seems to hit at the same time - sickness, kids' needs, work issues - and you are torn between being where you are and where you think you need to be (which is, of course, never where you are). Hope things settle down for you guys. Take care, ok?

Why it always happens all at once is beyond me - sending thoughts and hoping it eases soon,

It does seem like things happen all at once. I'm sorry that you're in the midst of one of those times.

I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed as of late....and then I think of my friend Suzy. She lost her mother a few years ago to cancer, her father has cancer, one of her brothers died a long time ago by suicide, she went through a divorce because her husband got another woman pregnant, her beloved brother passed away two months ago, and her only remaining brother was just in an accident and broke his neck. I don't know how she perseveres....but she does. When I think of all she has endured, it makes my stuff seem trivial, and even though it's still a struggle at times, I know I am blessed.

Hoping you see the light at the end of the tunnel...and that it is near!

Hi Deb, popped over from Carmi's place, he mentioned it's a difficult time.

Wow, it's all happening at once at the Levy house, isn't it?

I know it's trite, but try not to get too stressed out.

Keep us updated on your orange-legged alien, the family and I'm really interested in Zach's Bar Mitzvah.

Hope you enjoy Zach's Bar Mitzvah, am sure I read somewhere it is about now, and hope the rest of loife has calmed down even slightly for you, Katie
