Blog?...Me?

I really don't know what has happened to my life.

One day so normal...so manageable...so quiet...

Now-Watch Out!

I've always loved to blog but since I went back to work full-time, I've lost the free time to do it. It's not that I don't think about it. I see and experience things every day that I know are "blog worthy". I still love the idea of blogs...

I just don't have the time anymore.

Our alarm goes off between 5-5:30am and we all hit the ground running so we can get out the door as close to 7am to head to work. I spend the day getting a library up and developed (which is much harder than you'd think) and running an after-care program. I fit in a few miles to walk after work before running home to start dinner, straighten the house, go over homework, get lunches and bags ready, return calls, get baths done and then finally sit down around 9:00-9:30pm.

I try to take a breather but I know there all bills to be paid, Prasso to be studied, discipleship issues to be researched and responded to, e-mails to be returned, calendars to be managed...wait, have I missed an important birthday?? Then there is my room mom duties and small group responsibilities. When is Sam's history paper due and "Don't forget, Charity-tomorrow...TOMORROW Jo needs $5.00 for his field trip or he can't go!"

And time for friends?? HA!

As I contemplate how I'm dropping the ball with EVERYTHING, I doze off on the couch while I attempt to get caught up on campaign results from my voting LAST WEEK!

Honestly, I have a whole new compassion for working moms. I mean, it's not like any responsibilities "go away" when you go back to work...they just get crammed into three hours at night and ALL day on Saturday.

So, I'd love to keep my blog up about our life but our life keeps getting in the way!

Maybe this summer?

As a faithful reader...I suppose I can cut you a little slack. But maybe you could take your lap top to school and type during nap time for the kiddos!?

I know you'll be happy to know that your friend Sandy is doing well. We went to Wisc Dells and all enjoyed some really fun things to do. Now she is at home with Poppa helping her with a flooded basement. Always a lot of responsibilities when one is in her spot in life. I'm thankful for her close friends that pray for her daily. Fran
