Well this has been one of the most stressful weeks I've had in a while. Filled with a bit of awkward tension, family drama and lots and lots of kids. Ok maybe not lots and lots, but double my normal number. And that's enough for me. oh and dogs. 4 dogs too. There's not really too much to say at this point other than everything turned out alright. I learned that I need to be a little more assertive. Even though I think I'm wearing my thoughts and emotions on my sleeve, and I think the meaning behind what I do say is obvious, it's not. I need to say what I mean and not worry so much what people may think. (that last statement SO needs to work both ways) And that things need to be thought through a little more. And I knew this already, but my husband totally has my back. Even though sometimes the words that come out of his mouth make me want to crawl in a little hole forever (because i hate confrontation so much, whether it involves me or not), he totally has my back. I love that he's totally ok with saying "blame it on me" because he knows he can take it and maybe I can't. He's also very quick witted. The perfect combo to me, the one who tends to close up like a clam shell.
Anyway, it's sort of almost all the way done and next week we get to go back to normal.
