There has been a system error.

You know that system. The one where I take care of my kids, cook 3 nice meals a day, keep the house clean and the laundry done, bond with my husband, do my job well, help out at the kids' school, and still have time to do other things I like - drink coffee that doesn't come from a machine that serves it in plastic cups, blog, nuture friendships, read, and respond to emails that have been in my inbox for months.

There is a weak link in the system and I have a sinking feeling I'm it.

Nicole....you are so NOT the weak link! If you are, then we women are doomed. Sweetie...you are amazing, and I am always impressed by you. If you're the weak link, then...well....there's no hope for me whatsoever. So, chin up, kiddo. You are the glue that holds it all together.

We all have our weak moments - and sometimes they last much longer than a moment. . .it's all part of being human. I would rather consider it just being human. . .a busy mother of 2 instead of being weak!

This too shall pass.

Nicole, I love your sense of humor. Now, I know a good sense of humor sometimes (well, probably often/always) comes with an emotional pricetag. But, well, I am smiling and trust that you will gain some moments to regain your equilibrium!

Thank you, everyone, for you comments. It was just one of those weeks, you know?

Damn. I've been getting a similar error lately. Maybe it's a virus.

If you are experiencing a system error... sigh... I'm carrément FUBAR.
