Tunnel vision

{Zoa sporting one of the bubble skirts I made this summer.}

Our family is in a whirlwind.

I mean seriously, when you change sheets with your sick daughter still in them because you don't have the heart to wake her up, you know..

...you have to do what you have to do.

Right now, for us that means eating not so good for you food, eating out more than I like, loading the washer at night so you can start it before you leave at 7:30 and consuming more coffee than ever.

We have finals this week and next week and hopefully we can start fresh on November 1 when the winter term begins.

I have changed these last few months. I feel lost, struggling to stay afloat and angry. Angry that my life is school. I miss simple Sundays relaxing with the family, grocery shopping, cooking and not having a pit in my stomach all the time...waiting on the next test score to be posted.

But you know what? I have one year and seven months left. I know this is a tough time but I will make it through. It's just hard to not be able to be the mom and wife I want to be.
