To say that we had fun with our visitors would be an understatement. It was so comforting having that much familial support right here in our own home! I felt lots of love and support. I made a big decision during their visit- I am going to quit my job. I don't know why I didn't come up with it myself, but I needed my old sage soul-sister Bethy to help me-well push me, in that direction. I don't know why I didn't see it sooner. It makes perfect sense. It is about the only variable that I CAN control. So, I gave my 2 weeks' notice, and I am ducking out of the rat race for a while. (get the animal connotations?) I think the reason I hadn't made that decision is because I feel somehow like a failure. I guess I thought I should be able to take care of the family and work. I think it might have been better if my job weren't so far away and sooooo hectic. So, as my mother-in-law told me today, the party starts when you order the cake...we have already started relaxing..as you can see.

We are like roadkill stuck to a tire on a car that's going 100 mph down the highway. We are both exhausted. The in-laws will be here tonight, so that will be a fun visit. We need a break, yet there isn't much light at the end of the tunnel..... This is our dog. He makes us laugh and really deserves a walk. It's not looking very promising, but it might happen, we'll see. For certain I will walk him whilst the company is in town.
