I'm Tired Just Thinking About It

I was going through all the happenings at our home this week. Wow, there is a lot going on.  We have 3 birthdays that I haven't even started to prepare for, piano, school, scouts, Achievement days for the girls, a funeral 4 hours away, a carseat cover to make, not the everyday cover mind you, lesson to prepare for church, feeding the next door neighbor's orphan horse, babysitting my niece and nephew, which we love to do, and all the normal life things, including piles of laundry.  I know there is something that I am missing but I just can't remember it right now.  Sadly that means it most likely will be missed.  Sorry if it happens to be something one of you reading this need me to do. Hopefully I can fit in watering the garden and flower seeds and checking on the chickens. I know I won't forget to take the dog out otherwise I will pay and that's not fun.

So here I sit at 1:00 in the morning trying to get some important things done before the week starts. No, I didn't finish yet and that too will have to get done in the next 2 days. Sadly I have to accomplish this job while the kids are in bed so it's either a very early morning or another late night.

OH, I remember what the other thing was. My parents are coming into town. :) Does it get any better than this? And I really want to make Mother's day special for her. I haven't been with my mom on mother's day for so many years that I can't remember the last time. Hopefully mom doesn't see this blog and feel bad.  I'm pretty safe with that though, she's still learning to check email.

Any suggestions on how to accomplish two weeks of work in one would be helpful about now!


  1. When you find the magic that works, please let me in on it! :)

  2. Delegate and hire some help, especially for the cleaning. Put out some SOSs to friends.
