Just when you think...

You know, just when you think you are good for the week because Monday is over...Tuesday hits. This starts my own personal chaos it seems. Lack of sleep and trying to get back in a weekly routine are apparently brutal! Factor in karate, homework, dinner, and two kids that are desperate for 'down time' and you can understand. On top of all this, I have to go to the funeral home tonight. Life...

Favorite blogs

It's Monday.  Which makes it a blah day by default.  I look forward to one bloggers post today though, and today, she did not disappoint.  That being said I thought I should share some of my favorite blogs that I enjoy reading.

First of all, this needs to be looked at:  Magnificent Men of Monday August 29, 2011 Edition.

Blogs that I enjoy:

  1. Obviously, from the post above, Cely at Running off the Reese's is fabulous.  I love her humor and the way that she includes pictures (with captions) that are just too funny!
  2. Kris Carr is fabulous as well over at Crazy Sexy Life.  She has many guest posts as well that are always wonderful to read.
  3. One of the first blogs that I started reading regularly was Peas and Thank You.  I am envious of this Vegan Supermom and all that she has accomplished now with her first book publishing!
  4. Liz over at One Twenty Five just intrigues me.  I'm not even sure what it is, but she is just adorable (check out her video blogs too) and I'm envious of her plans to travel the world.
I like to read my sister's as well over at A Duck on the Run, but that's just because I'm all in her business!  What else are big sisters for?!

Glimpse of the lake...

End to the weekend

Had a great weekend! House cleaned, laundry done, lake time, church, new shirts, grocery shopping done, Sunday afternoon nap...

Okay, so not terribly exciting, but not having to be 50 different places is really nice!

Saturday at home

A Saturday at home with no definite plans is so rare and taken for granted. The kids and I have enjoyed our day and got the majority of the cleaning done. Now we are relaxing and watching The Fox and the Hound. I have even managed to squeeze in some Kindle time! Strange book I've started though. I'm not sure what time David thinks 'lunch' is since that's when he said he would be home?? Glad we did not wait on him. Off to scratch off the last couple of items on my 'to do' list.

Happy Saturday!

Finally Friday

Here it is.  The day I wait for all week!  Mainly just because I look forward to the work week being over, but sometimes it's because we have lots of awesome things planned on the weekend.

This week, it's just because I want the week to be over.  People around me have been crazy!  It's definately not me, right?!  Who knows, it could be.  Either way, I need a fresh start.

No plans (not sure how that happened) have been made so hopefully that means I'll get some things accomplished (as opposed to just laying around reading books).  Either way, I think it will be a fantastic weekend.

Perhaps I can find some time...

Life is busy

Today has just been one of those days.  My phone at work should be dead as much as it's been ringing lately.  To the point that I have missed calls and messages if I get up to even go to the printer or fax, and heaven forbid that I need to go to the bathroom or get a cup of coffee.   Just been crazy!  Even more frustrating is the fact that it seems the current problems that are occuring are out of my control.  Fun!

So, work all day to come home and rush kids through homework so that we can somehow manage to get to karate on time (it sorta went like this anyway, but Bryson finished his in the car on the way and Brianna finished at class).  Stripe testing (again?!) is today and we should have been there 10 minutes early, which we were, but he should have been ready at this point and not just arriving.  Again, fun!

Nana and Lydia met us at class to take over with Bryson so that Brianna and I can make it to her first girl scout meeting.  Yay?!  Of course, she's starving so we pick up a snack on the way to the house that I must now stop at because I've forgotten my checkbook.  Running, running!

At the meeting, I'm informed that I must 'Go'.  Oh, I don't have to stay?  So, Bryson is at dinner with the in-laws and Brianna is at her GS meeting...and mom had a moment alone?!  So, what's a mom to do?  Called a couple of people to chat and of course came home to start getting things ready for tomorrow...what else would I do on a Thursday night?  Exciting?!  I know, I know!

So glad tomorrow is Friday!

I've always heard that time flies...

People have always said, 'Time flies'!  I think you begin to understand this term once you're grown.  The entire time I was young it seemed that there was always something to look forward to.  There were milestones...makeup, dating, driving, etc.  Once I had children that phrase became even more true.  I'm still not sure how I currently have a 10 and an 8 year old?!  What the heck happened?

I read blogs daily.  Have I mentioned that I'm a blog stalker?! 

Do I keep up with mine, no!

I decided to look at mine today, and do you know what I found out?  I haven't posted ANYTHING since July 8th?  What?  It's August 25th!

Oh, and those lofty goals I had for 2011 for posting my articles--Well, I haven't even submitted an article since February.  So, only 4 articles for all of 2011.  Crazy!  I've even got some fabulous ideas, just haven't taken the time to do them.  Such a procrastinator!

I'm not making any promises, just sharing my realization.
