Never ending

I seem to be having some time-management issues... maybe you know what I'm talking about. You know- where your daily to-do list seems to keep rolling over into tomorrow and you feel like your never going to get it all done. Well, that's where I'm at.

And my blog seems to be suffering the most. See- I'll have a great idea for a blog post and have it all planned out in my head. But actually getting to the computer and posting it...well, not so much.

And then when I finally do get a chance to sit down and blog...I forgot what was so great about the post in the first place. Words won't flow like they did and the humor is long gone.

Take last night for example. All day I had this awesome idea for a post. But we were in Omaha visiting my mom and I wasn't near a computer. It marinated in my thoughts and just flowed so effortlessly together in my head as I ran through it. I couldn't wait to get home and write. BUT we got out of town later than expected and I needed to run and get the kids from school. Then there's the after school snack and home work time, and cleaning up after all that. Second cousins were over so games and things were everywhere. Mean while trying to care for Evie and pick up the kitchen. After dinner, I called my mom to get an update on her afternoon and then relayed the message to my grandma (who, by the way, is a super talker). After 30 minutes of talking to her on the phone and answering emails simultaneously- it was time to feed Evie dinner. Then I had to fold laundry and start another load. I ran back downstairs to wash Evie's bottles and start the dishwasher. By then it was a little after nine and time to put Evie to bed. After twenty minutes of rocking and cuddling - she finally went to sleep. AND I was EXHAUSTED and couldn't even remember what I was going to write about. So no post.

Sad thing is...its not just the post that didn't get posted, its the grocery list that didn't get written, the front room that didn't get vacuumed and trash that didn't get taken out to the curb...all of that was crammed into the morning routine this morning...eegads!

I guess what I'm saying is...I'm overwhelmed. There are only so many hours in the day and only so much that can be done. It will all get done eventually and there's no reason to stress! Right!?

Thank goodness there is a snowstorm this weekend- because I will playing catch up!

Amen. I'm hoping the storm is enough to cancel some events and I can tackle some things here.
