Stress in the Forecast!

Apparently, I can't keep up with everything! I have been so busy and stressed lately. I feel like I'm drowning! My house still hasn't sold but they say the average is about 3 months before things sell. Drat! But we've had lots of people look at it! But no offers yet. In the mean time, I have to keep my house spotless 24/7. I don't mind keeping it clean, but the spotless thing is really a headache when my girls are fighting me tooth and nail! I've about had it. I don't think I can keep this up! Maybe I'll just stay here. Do you think the Lord is up for negotiations?

Moving on...

Lylli has been very depressed lately and going in to huge fits about the silliest things. She hates life and everyone is against her. I don't know if she's just frustrated from school, stressed about moving, or something else. But if she were a teen, I'd be concerned that she'd be suicidal. Still, we've been trying to be patient and give her love and space. That's what the "specialists" say to do. Hopefully it's just a faze and will be over SOON!!!
Next week, we start the practices for our preschool program, so I have been trying desperately to put that together. It would be so much more helpful if my boss was in town and would let me know what I'm supposed to be doing. Fortunately, the lady who used to do it has come in and helped me with a few things. That has been life saving! I'll be glad when the program's over!
I'm getting excited about my book! My editor should be sending me a copy to proof by the end of the month! It goes to press on March 16th and will be in print a month or two later, I think. And...I don't have the official word yet, but it looks like they will let Alicia do my cover art! Isn't that cool!! I'm pretty excited! Things are finally starting to move!

Well it has been a stressful week all around, hasn't it? I'm sorry about Lylli. Female emotions are so hard to understand. Hopefully she will feel better soon. And I totally understand about the spotless part! Selling a house is stressful with small kids.

That's awesome about your cover art. I can't wait to buy my copy! And I want you to sign it this summer!

Sounds like a VERY stressful week. I hope everything looks up for next week. I'm sure it will. My strawberry cake should cheer Lylli up!
