Okay, I am way over stressed

I'm just gonna type this post as a vent and not worry about grammar or typos. 'Cause, really, I just can't handle small details at the moment.

I love my new iPhone 4S, but I can't get it to sync with iTunes and I don't know what to do. Scott is traveling and I'm on my own with this one. I've looked it up online, found a few cryptic answers, but nothing that will actually help me.

So why does my phone need to be synced right now? Why is it so urgently important? Because, Readers, I have an extraordinarily messy house that needs to be cleaned and I don't want to do it without listening to the book I just downloaded from Audible. Books make the cleaning go so much faster. And I also tend to be more thorough because I'm riveted and don't want to stop!

I don't want to house clean without my story! Wah!

Why do things always happen when the husband is out of town? Like TiVo crashing, the tv going out and new phones going wonky? Not that the TiVo crashed or the tv went out recently. That happened over the summer when Scott was gone.

No, yesterday the smoke alarm started chirping. Time to change the battery. No biggie, right? Unless you're 5'3" and can't even reach the dang thing from the top step of the step stool. I finally hunted down our slightly taller stool and was just barely able to get the battery out. Replacing it? Ha. Didn't have any more 9 volts. Natch. Had to go to the store, then struggle all over again to get the fresh one in.

But I did it. Without calling the very tall high school kid across the street. That was my back up plan. Haha.

And let's talk Disney. Not the company. The dog. The world's most awesome puppy. I'm not complaining. Really. Okay. Maybe I am, just a little. I'm training him to do his business outside instead of on the puppy pads he was trained on by his last owners. He adores being outside so it's never a problem to get him out, but he doesn't always have to go. I get that. I do. But I know as soon as he comes back in and I take my eyes off him that he'll pee in the house. I don't know what to do. I can't just leave him outside. Well, I can and I'm happy to do so, but he wants to be with me all the time. If I'm outside, great. If I come inside, he has to come to.

Puppy training class starts in two weeks. I can't wait 'cause I am not puppy proficient. At least I don't feel like I am, but funny, he totally sees me as the alpha mom. I love it!

Isn't this photo cute? I took it this morning before Em went to school.

The book fair I'm coordinating starts next week, so there's tons of stuff to be done this week. It's all going great and I'm not worried, it's just finding the time to do it all. And I can't neglect to mention the ever needy Student Store I run. I adore this job. It's just a lot of work. And keeping up with what the kids wants? Impossible. Who knew we'd go through four boxes of brown sugar cinnamon pop tarts in less than two weeks? Middle schoolers are unpredictable. But we all knew that, didn't we? LOL.

I got a call last night from the lady who is running the church's annual Pumpkin Patch. She desperately needed help this morning and I just couldn't do it since the exterminator is coming, so I agreed to help tomorrow morning for two hours.

Would someone please stop me from my volunteering mania? I can't seem to stop!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, I feel better having let off a little steam. Off to solve the syncing issue.
