Fun Busy

Two posts in one week! Say it isn’t so.

So I haven’t really explained too much about my job. I’ll post about that tomorrow.

I’m extremely tired today. I’m working 12 hours a day right now, which is fine, except I’m up at 6am and going to bed at midnight. I need more than 6 hours of sleep. Todd can live on that, but I need 8 hours on a regular basis.

Back in my college days (which lasted 13 years btw) I could easily work multiple jobs, and did. I worked my part-time morning job from 8-noon, then I’d go to school. At night and weekends I worked at a ski shop. For awhile instead of the ski shop I worked for my moms company. I did data entry stuff. Also at that time I was dating a guy whose brother dated a gal who worked at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mt. View. I started working as a +1 with her as an usher for concerts helping people find their seats. I got to pick my concerts. For FREE w/complimentary dinner I got to see Brooks & Dunn, the Eagles, Bette Midler, Phil Collins, Janet Jackson and a few others. I loved it. I loved being busy. There is fun busy and not so fun busy. I was doing the fun busy.

Well, now I’m married with children so being busy outside the home means things fall apart in the home. Todd is very good at being Mr. Mom. He cooks, cleans, grocery shops. What he doesn’t do is mine and the girl’s laundry (he’s in charge of his own). I’m also the one who manages the school events like field trips, paying tuition, treat money, etc. This week so far, I forgot yesterday was Shawna’s share day. I’m all messed up because of Presidents Day being Monday so I was home. My brain thinks today is Wednesday.
Wednesday is when our school family envelope comes home. Last night at 11pm I was paying for after school science camp, crab feed tickets and reading through pages of flyers.

A parent called me 2 nights ago leaving a message on our machine because at the beginning of the year I signed up to help at the Father/Daughter dance next month. I was too lazy to write her info down. I don’t know if I can help out. When will I do that?!

It seems like everybody is overwhelmed lately! I have to tell you that every single time I see your "header" picture of your girls I get a huge smile. They are just adorable!
