Quick, Someone Change The Subject

First let me thank you all for the overwhelming support you rendered in my time of need. It has actually been a lot easier than I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong I will still be watching my shows on the computer or in one of your lovely homes, but it has been nice to see what we as a family can do without any satellite. I will say Trent has taken the whole thing a little personal and feels he has been harshly judged, but I want to make it clear I am not bitter.

Now for a change of subject. I want May to be over with...NOW! In the past I have always dreaded the school year coming to an end, but not this year. May is always out of control but this year particularly is insane. We've got Baseball, Baseball, Baseball 5+ days a week, Scouts, YM, Gymnastics, Piano Lessons, School Choir, Recitals, Performances, Exhibitions, Games, Parties, Conditioning, Preschool Graduation, School Performances, etc., etc., etc., to name a few. I am literally going day to day hoping I can fit it all in. I'm having a hard time sleeping and therefore I am just run down and ready for a break. I decided to take June off from teaching piano & music and will spend the first couple weeks of June digging out of this mess of a house I'm in. I really shouldn't complain because this is pretty much how I like my life but give me a break this is even a little too much for me to handle. I'm actually looking forward to summer for the first time I can ever remember. Thanks for letting rant.

Can Anyone Recommend A Good Therapist?

Trent decided YESTERDAY after reviewing our Dish bill that we were no longer going to have Satellite T.V. anymore. WHAT? Really? Does he not know that every reality T.V. show I have been watching for the past 2 month are all coming to there finale in the next two weeks. (I'm too embarrassed to even tell you how many shows that is...a lot.) He has this crazy reasoning that we can save over $600 a year if we blah blah blah blah.... I'm going to spend that much this year in therapy, extra D.C. intake, entertaining 5 kids this summer, renting movies etc. He asked me if I was mad at him and I said no, 'cause what kinda a jerk would be mad at her husband for trying to save his family some money and "wanting to spend more time as a family doing other things then watching T.V." The other thing that sucks is we live were you can't even get the cheap basic cable stuff or one of those 1960's T.V. antennas to work. So my only solution/resolution...bumb T.V. off of friends. It's going to be long summer.

Oh, and Trent...I'm not mad! Love you.
