Hanging on

I’m not really sure what I’m doing lately. I kind of want to write but I also don’t have any motivation.

However, in the past two days, I’ve washed two loads of my laundry and folded three. I changed out the cat litter in all 3 litter boxes. I went grocery shopping today for a few things. I also filled up the gas in my car (it had gotten down to a quarter tank, which is really low for me.) I also got my car washed.

Oh, and I picked up all the branches that Dylan had trimmed off our hedges on the side and put them in yard waste bags. And I planted some grass seed today as well (but I’m not sure how much any of it will take because it’s raining super hard right now.)

I guess I am doing somewhat well with getting stuff done. It just doesn’t feel like that much. I don’t know if that’s because it legitimately isn’t much or because I still expect super-human levels of productivity like J had.

This week, Chloe’s going to work on resetting her sleep schedule and we’re going to do the last major in-person stuff she has to do before she starts working standard office hours. I’m going to be taking her to the Social Security office to get a new card reflecting her name change and then I will file for her gender marker change too. And we also have to go to transfer the title of J’s car into her name.

Then she plans on going to a temp agency to get work next week. On the one hand, that’s a HUGE positive as far as the likelihood of her getting some cash flow soon. I told her that I was getting desperate and would need her financial help, even if she had to take it out of savings. That seems to have lit a fire under her, thank god.

But I am also nervous because she doesn’t have a whole lot of driving experience, especially on highways, and people here drive like idiots (especially during rush hour.)

And then Dylan is going to start applying for lots of jobs in earnest once he gets his learner’s permit and takes driver’s training courses, which is near the end of this month.

I just really need for both of them to step up to the plate and start helping me out. The time of me trying to be super mom keeping us all afloat has to come to an end and soon.
