Where does the time go?

Not the typical blog you are probably expecting with that title, Where does my time go might have been more appropriate, Let's see Friday through Monday morning put in 40 hours of work. Monday sleep a little then pick up kids come home get Maddie ready for gym, On Tuesdays and Thursdays we drive to Fayetteville for 4 hours of gymnastics on Wednesdays it is church and now also on Thursdays we have track meets to attend and not to mention baseball season will be starting and we have two playing this year! And now Mason is thinking about playing for a traveling league out of Westville, um excuse me? How are we suppose to drive there twice a week and not to mention once games start no telling where we will be driving. I think I need two of me! Let the cloning begin except this time make me a little skinnier please! But you know even though I am complaining about the running around I wouldn't trade it for anything I look at Mason who is turning 16 in a couple of months and realize wow a couple more years and he is off to college and Maddie will not be far behind, My little babies are growing up way to fast and here I sit and grip that we are always go go go! I will gladly run full speed to be at every sporting event, every school play, every check up and anything else they want to throw in If only in return I could have a few minutes each day just to sit and look at each one have a conversation steal a glimspe of a little smile and hear a little giggle. Why must they grow up so fast? Can't they stay home with me forever Iwould give up all my me time for just a little more us time. Time is so precious and sometimes we don't realize that until the time starts to run out! So where did all the time go and how do I get some of it back?

organized? Ha!

As I woke up today, and was looking around for a book I was wanting to read could I find it no I could not! And why is that oh I don't know maybe because I live with the most unorganized bunch ever! Answer me this, why is it so hard to put something back in the same spot you got it out of? Because it was so much easier and faster to put it back down two cabinets to the left? Um it takes the same amount of time to put it right back where you got it but it takes a lot longer to find it when it is in the wrong spot than if it's in the right one! I may start to go crazy! I think I will buy a label maker maybe that will help, of course my hubby says no way because he thinks he will wake up with his name labeled on his head one morning. Well at least then he will know who he is in case he forgets, which could happen considering how I send him to the store for peas and he comes home with carrots lol. but that is a whole other blog! Now let's see how do you get 4 kids and a grown man to stay organized? I thought I could let it go and just realize it was never going to happen and just live amongst the chaos but obviously I can't because here I am blogging about it, I am obsessed or possessed whichever fits lol. My sister volunteered to come over next week and help whip the house into shape when you see her running down the road screaming please pick her up and take her home she had no idea what she was walking into, although I did try to warn her. I mean where do you put the endless papers the kids bring home from school and church I have 4 kids so that is an average of 60 to 65 papers a week, not including the endless amount of mail I think I will just start tossing all of the mail straight from the box to the recycle bin, or course then my bills might get neglected, and who knows what kind of accidents would occur over here in the dark with all the disorganization? Guess I better look for the light bill before I start throwing stuff out! I think the first thing I need to do is make a list and get a plan in order to start this the right way, now where is my pen? KIDSSSSSSSSSSSS

What am I doing?

Okay so I joked about creating this blog, and got lots of different feedback. Well I decided to go for it, it might keep me sane to be able to get on here and let all the crazy, empty, silly thoughts out for everyone to read and comment on. So here we go first as shows the title I have no idea what I am doing or exactly how to do this but I think with time I will become a pro lol. I still can't figure out how to send pics to my facebook via my cell phone. So we will see if I do any better with this! Second I would like to let anyone know who reads this that I am using this as a place for advice, tips, and hints for all things in life from parenting to cooking everything really, But mostly I am going to use it as an outlet to vent and talk about stuff nobody may care about but me! So hopefully I won't offend anyone with what I have to say on a daily basis. On the other hand if I do here it is the only time I will say it "Sorry! You came here to read of your own free choice so quit gripping!" Anyone who knows me and just read that is saying aww that's the girl I know. Yeah I tend to speak my mind, sometimes this is good and sometimes it gets me in trouble but what can I say I can't change who I am there's something freeing sometimes about saying what you feel and think of course sometimes I regret it a little, see that I said sometimes. Also I think this will be a great place to make people laugh, there is nothing better than having someone make you laugh, making someone laugh, or having someone to laugh with! Now once i get this thing going I will probably update it way to much! Hope you all read enjoy and most importantly remember this is my blog to express how I fee and what I think, take that with a grain of salt!
