That’s what it feels like when life is continually disrupted 🙁

You know that I am a creature of habit. I like the holidays, but this year the way they fell with weekends attached, it seemed like it would never end.

Then my daughter made a surprise visit for a week. I made her go home because the weather was due to change, and she needed to go home and they need to decide what they are going to do. They have to move by the end of the month. Are they moving together, or each going home? That is not decided yet.

Then comes a little snow, and a lot of cold. Our wind chills today were 30-35 degrees below zero.

Of course I had said that I needed to change the car battery before winter. I didn’t. UGH!

I had really 2 choices. Either let the car sit for a few days until the weather gets warmer, or get the new battery. Of course it all would have been a lot easier if I had done it before it got cold… Isn’t that what I preach all of the time? My friend Linda would say, “Doctor, heal thyself.”

We had like 2 inches of snow. How can that make a foot high snow drift in front of my car every few hours? The garbage is not going out for tomorrow morning. The cans are firmly frozen in place, and I’m not dealing with it.

I haven’t taken down my Christmas decorations. Have you?

I knock off a lot of my spring cleaning when I switch everything over, but there just hasn’t been time.

I figure about the time I get settled back into a schedule my daughter will move back in and disrupt everything again. It looks like that is the way it is going to go. They expected that life would be easier than it really is. They would play house, the sun would be out everyday, they would have plenty of time to go out, and life would be easy…

Yeah, they had things go wrong, but nothing earth shattering. Its sad, but if the relationship couldn’t survive those little upheavals, they didn’t have a chance. Don’t you agree?

I know a lot of parents have a hard time letting go of their kids. I on the other hand, had gotten into my own little life and routines. I did not expect to have my child at home ever again.

There are all kinds of mixed feelings. I’m sad for her that the relationship, and life did not worked out the way she thought it would. On the other hand, she has more opportunity and connections for her career in dog training up here. Besides, she can do all the cooking and cleaning now 😉

Don’t get me wrong, it will be nice to have her around, and the dog. Its just another adjustment.

So, I’ve had a lot going on. Of course that means that I haven’t gotten to putting the finishing touches on How to Lose Weight Without Losing Your Mind. That means that you can still get it for just $7. Even at that, anything I add, you will still get – even though others will pay more.

Have you had an adult child return home? How did it go?
