muthereffin seesaw

the roller coaster is one thing - emotional blah blah, dizzying, familiar

the seesaw - attempted balance - attempted being the word of note. otherwise the symbolic metahpor would be a scale

the hardest thing right now is dealing w my kids, i try to have more patient together time right now, and end up being zero tolerance impatient mom as their demands compete with my filledtothebrim thoughts, not fair at all i realize.

A new level of balance on top of all that i've only vaguely mastered as a single parent

    Never entertained the idea of being a marmoset before now!
    Nanette, my sympathy for the dealing with kids difficulty. I don't know if this will help, but imagine being Asia's parent when he was 14 and maybe your kids will not seem so bad after all. HA HA!?!

  2. You can do it! You're a pro at juggling - just add a chain saw to the mix, keep your eye on the other balls and you'll be great!

  4. Great seeing you for a bit yesterday Nan. Realize your feelings may not have reflected it at the time, but your super attitude is (I know you know this) going to carry you far in this confusion. You also have wonderful people like Fernando to take the kids occasionally.
    In CA we'd always say, don't fight the wave bro, ride on top of it.
    You have a knack for that very skill, Nanette.
