I Have Arrived

Yes folks, I have officially arrived at the point in life where I can no longer get everything done. I've long heard of this phase, but never quite understood. It used to be that if I began to feel overwhelmed I could take a Friday morning and clean, get caught up on laundry, sort paperwork, etc., and all would be well. Alas, it is no longer possible for me.

Things on my proverbial "back burner" right now......

1. Vacuuming, I can't remember this last time I did it. I LOVE my hand held Dyson but it allows me to go way to long without using my real vacuum.

2. Clipping the toenails and fingernails of the little people in my house. Someone is always looking a little "Lee Press On" if you know what I mean.

3. As I write this both my boys are wearing NO underwear. I'm currently washing everything they own.

4. There are numerous clothing items behind my dryer. We may have to move before I get to that.

5. All our tax info is still sitting out. Need to find space for filing and then file.

6. Clean winter clothes out of drawers.

7. Come up with a plan for surviving the summer.

I know there's plenty more, but that's all I can come up with right now. What's on your "back burner"? And if your answer is your tea kettle I don't want to hear from you.

Thursday Nights

One of the hard things about my husband's job is that he works a lot of evenings. But we try, try, try to keep Thursday nights wide open for doing absolutely nothing. Tonight we were successful. Basketball with Dad outside, yummy dinner, the baby in bed before 7, made cookies with the boys, and now I'm watching Tyler wrestle with the boys on the living room floor. They've moved all the furniture to the edges and the boys are laughing so hard they're drooling on their jammies. The cookies are baking and we'll eat them hot out of the oven before putting the boys to bed. After that there's a bottle of wine calling my name, and yes I'll share with Tyler. I love Thursday nights.

In the sprit of "keepin' it real" here's what else happened tonight. Tyler brought home Juice Stop after work and shared with the boys. This meant sticky drips on my freshly washed kitchen floor. The boys didn't care for dinner, I think their exact words were "this is disgusting". That kind of disrespect called for punishment of course. Making cookies with kids means a huge mess in the kitchen and germy fingers in the dough. While wrestling, Calvin hit his head and will have a lovely bruise tomorrow. Charlotte woke up, I think she's working on some new teeth. But that bottle of wine is still waiting for us, and I still love Thursday nights!
