In A Tizzy

I am reminded of the expression "Don't get your panties in a twist". We are leaving next Wednesday to drive across the country and as usual I am not prepared. My panties are pretzels!

Today we leave for four days. We are heading down to MA for a 75th birthday party for my Mom. I am in no mood to play "happy family".

Good Things
*My husband and children are still talking to me. I've been pretty cranky this week.
*I have been working on my back splash in the bathroom. It looks earthy and organic...way cool!!!
*We went to a wonderful dinner with good friends last night.
*It's much easier packing up the apartment this year because I never unpacked last year.
*My tulips from Lopez (a wonderful X-mas gift) are starting to pop their wee heads out.
*My flowers that I planted last year survived the winter and are sprouting. For the life of me I can't remember what they are called.
*We are going to the "bare breasted women of Tahiti" exhibit at the Boston MFA tomorrow. Can you guess who the artist is?
*We are closer to getting to Lopez than we were last week, yesterday, a moment ago.....
*I had a wonderful snuggle with Ethel M this morning.

I won't even go into the stress or troubles that I am trudging through. They are as big to me right now as a mighty redwood and I am pushing them into the recesses of my being in hopes that they can be ignored. I am fragile and full of power a synergy known only to the borderline insane.
