I feel like my life is a very fast ride these days.  My little ones go to preschool three hours a day, three days a week.  That would be what my husband calls my “free” time.  Grrrrrr.  Free to do things at a frantic pace and make progress where I won’t be able to for the rest of the week. Today is not one of those days.  Today they are here.  We went to the bakery this morning and came home so I could “get something done“.

I become completely immobilized sometimes, when there is the most in front of me.  I have laundry to put away, sticky bathroom counters to wipe, random bits of ironing laying around, and a dog that has wandered up the street (it’s safe here for her to do that, but I feel much better once she is home).  My big kid is at school until 1:00 today, and my little ones are wearing Halloween costumes (Iron Man and Sleeping Beauty).  I have no real plan for lunch, or how all of my to-do list will get done... just faith that the dog will come home and that this will all get done.  None of this touched on the work I need to do regarding the company launch or the PTO meeting at school tonight where I am speaking.  Clearly blogging isn’t the answer, but it’s certainly a nice break!

It’s funny, isn’t it, how sometimes we can accomplish so much and be so organized, and other times it just doesn’t come together?  I think the key to sanity is leaving space for breaks, and if you are luckier than me getting a great housekeeper.  I wonder what Alice from the Brady Bunch is doing these days?  Wouldn’t it be fabulous to have one of those?  Someone who loves your kids, cleans your house, cooks your meals and runs interference with your spouse?  Imagine how much blogging that mom could have done!
