I'm sure you've heard the joke:
Q: Why did the boy throw his watch out the window?
A: because he wanted to see time fly.
The poor kid could have kept his watch. All he needs to do is visit my house!
I feel like I've lost my mind this week. It seems like there is so much to do and no time to do it all. Even late nights don't catch me up. If you know how uptight I am about being on time for things, meeting deadlines and not procrastinating (my Mom is going to have a heart attack when she reads that...but I'm not the same girl I once was) than you can probably imagine how this week has me all wound up! This week I have had two days of preschool to prepare for and teach in my home, a cub scout pack meeting to help Dave get ready for, an eBay scam ring to crack, a doctors appointment, a sick Dad to worry about and get a care package off to, school to volunteer at, bills to pay ... and all the other regular Mom duties. It doesn't seem like much now that I'm writing it all down. But, I am totally overwhelmed mentally. I am so distracted that I kept walking by my laundry room and smelling foul air. I thought to myself that the dog was really in need of a bath. (we put him there when we leave or have company) The smell kept getting worse and worse. It wasn't until today that it dawned on me to check the washer. Sure enough I had started a load and forgotten it. YUCK! The worst part is that even now that I've discovered the load I still can't remember when I started it. I'm losing it! Maybe it's the new baby. I feel like I'm just dragging my kids everywhere and we haven't had any good stay at home time. Fortunately they have been spared some of the errands by friends who have invited them over to play. But poor baby Sara. She knows every nook and cranny of her car seat by now.
I need a nice relaxing day with nothing eating at my mind!
