Dual Personality Disorder


My life lately includes much more Click and Coffee than usual to the point that my stomach is starting to rebel and my blood sugar is on strike. I am learning I am just not up for this at my advanced age. It is harder than I expected to manage a dual personality disorder when you aren't medicated. See I am trying desperately to balance this life:
With this life:

I had my first fail the other morning. I was walking in the door early in the morning thinking the kids would still be in bed. Large coffee in hand to start a very long day on very little sleep when the door is whipped open by my daughter who starts questioning me about where I was and telling me how "freaked out she was". D'oh!
The kids are not home alone! Let me say that right up front. I have family here and they know that.
She then proceeds to tell anyone and everyone who will listen that I did not get home until 6:16 and she knows I was not at work because I don't work until Thursday. Damn, I wish my kid wasn't so smart!
A while back I think I blogged about not having a life and not knowing what to do with myself without the kids. Now, I am not a crazy bar hopping fool but I can find things to do with my time. I work really hard to keep these lives separate but it is at the cost of not sleeping because most of my awake time is spent with them.
This is harder than I thought.
So if you ever see me stepping out of this I am just changing from Mom to Fooseberrypie. Please just don't tell anyone where or what time you saw me.
