Hitting like a ton of bricks since 1996

Calgon, take me away

Time for a bitch post. This past week, and for that matter the past several weeks, have been nothing less than hectic. I've had so much going on at work and at home that I'm just plain physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted.

Work has been largely frustrating at best. Don't get me wrong, I like and enjoy my job, but there's just so much going on sometimes I wonder that I'm keeping up with it. It just seems to be a time when all my clients seem to want something done now. Whew. That's the mentally draining part.

Plus my mother-in-law is visiting this week. If you've ever watched old sitcoms you know what that means. And of course while she's here the kids don't want to behave. And we've been having those money troubles that crop up with being (relatively) new homeowners. That's the emotionally draining part.

To top everything off, I've not been sleeping well. Coupled with going to bed way too late every night, it adds up to the physically draining part.

I'd say I'm in serious need of a vacation, but we all know how stressful those things can be. No thanks. I just need to get through the next couple weeks, I think.

Seems the only thing that's gone right is that I've mostly finished this website. I've been tinkering in bits and pieces here and there for over two months now, mostly late at night when I should be in bed or on weekends. But now I can focus more on content and less on design and structure, so that's actually a load off. Ironically, I've also managed to keep comics going, which is surprising since they're usually one of the first casualties when things get overwhelming for me. So I guess if I can keep those going through all this, either things aren't as bad as they seem or they're going to get worse. Blah.
