ughh

I'm so burnt out.
It's the end of summer vacation and my kids are making me crazy.I know it's payback for making my parents crazy at the end of each of our summer breaks, but jeez. My son, especially, is going to be the death of me.
I'm starting to have some major burnout.
Between closing down my photography business (long story, but i'm trasitioning to only doing charity sessions), school being about to start, FI retiring next week (well, he goes on terminal leave next week, until the end of october... but as far as we are concerned it may as well be next week b/c it's the same for us either way), and now FI's ExW is giving me a major headache about all things related to being alive. OMG. She never used to be like this, but left her fiancee (who kept her really chill and grounded) and now is a total handful. Plus todya we found out that FI's identity was stolen when some scam artist called him, threatened his life and cussing him out when he refused to pay $300 on a payday loan he never took out. Problem being, they threatened him while he was at work, so he made a threat to someone on a federal installation, which makes it something that we have to report to the PD, then they report it to the FBI. It's just one big mess. Plus Fi's battery died in his truck today, so that wasn't awesome. I'm swamped with work (but grateful for it too).
I wish I could just take a nap for about 2 weeks and be done with it.

    That's a lot to deal with. I hope that everything gets resolved with your FI and fast.

    School starts on Monday for my son and Tuesday for my daughter, so maybe next week I'll just sleep all day one of those days. LOL

    Oh, honey - so sorry you're all stressed out!

    I can understand you on ExW issues. FI's son's mom (they were never married) just broke up with her bf, and has gone back to making our life a challenge.
