I'm making myself sick with stress. My dreams are classic going under dreams, so I'm waking up exhausted, and I haven't been able to keep much of anything down today. I just have so much to do.

I've got Alex's birthday party - which means gifts, goodie bags, buying and putting stuff together. The party is Saturday morning, so at least I'm only stressing about it this week.

Then I have Christmas. We're not here, we're in the UK, leaving here on the 12th. But I'm baking over there, so I have to put together everything I need that I can't find there to take it with me, then go over all the gift stuff - what are we taking with us, what are we leaving behind. Don't ask me what I've bought. All our plans just changed again, so I have to go out and compensate for it.

Writing. pepperlandgirl4 and I were going to start book 3 of the Silver series when she arrives on Wednesday, but we've decided not to put ourselves under the added stress right now. We're going to work on smaller things that we've committed to, instead. Still a lot to get done, though.

Cleaning. Pepper arrives on Wednesday. I leave here on the 12th. I have so much crap to get done.

Then there's all life stuff - the kids school stuff, Alicia's piano lesson, her recital this coming weekend, laundry and cooking. I'm giving up my guitar lessons again. I just can't deal with it right now on top of everything else.

I bribed Pepper with baking goods every day. I'm hoping baking will make me feel better.
