Hump Day Already?

Seriously, I know it’s horribly cliche, but really.  WHERE DOES TIME GO?  I have no idea.  I feel like it should be Tuesday.  I also feel like it should be July.  I can only imagine how I’ll feel when I’m 60.  Like it should be 2015?

I wish I had an eloquent, touching story to share with you today.  Or a humorous anecdote.  Or even a disjointed list.  But I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel, to be honest.  I’ve been designing like a mad woman.  Between that and shuttling the kids around to their various schools and practices and preparing the Bible study I’m going to be leading every week (starting today), I’m just barely keeping my head above water.

On top of all that, I’ve agreed to help out the PTA with the "Meet the Teacher" feature in the school newsletter.  Basically it’s a way to get to know the teachers a little bit.  And I need to come up with a list of questions to ask the teachers we interview each month.  That is where YOU come in. If you were reading an interview of your child’s teacher in the school newsletter, what would YOU want to know?  What would your KIDS want to know?  Kindly leave your suggestions in the comments.  Thanks!  Y’all’s the BEST!

So then there’s this little matter of Martha Stewart’s talk show.  My ambitious and adventurous friend Sarah managed to secure us tickets to next Wednesday’s
“Blogging Show” when the ENTIRE audience will be other bloggers.  AND the
celebrity guest is known to be an avid celebrity blogger to boot.  I so want to go. 

But we would have to leave at 0-dark-hundred to get to NYC in time for the taping, and we wouldn’t get back until late afternoon.  And that brings up all sorts of inconvenient child-care issues.  Fortunately Sarah is in that liberating stage of parenting when her kids are all in the same school on the same schedule for the whole live-long day. 

I, on the other hand, have a small child at home all day, another child who has to be picked up from school at 11:15, and yet another child coming home on the bus at 3:30.  And to top it off, I am scheduled to lead and host a ladies’ Bible study that morning.  SO.  I probably won’t go.  There are just too many logistical hurdles to overcome.  I know it could be worked out, but frankly, it’s too exhausting.  I really have no idea how moms that work outside of the home juggle childcare.  I am in awe, truly.

Well, for having nothing to say this morning, I sure did manage to say a lot.  And now I need to get off the ‘puter and get my kids ready for school.  And somehow manage to stop this infernal phone beside me from beeping.  I swear, it’s possessed.  It keeps beeping at me for no apparant reason.  My guess is my 2-year-old was playing with it while I was surfing blogs earlier.  Am I actually supposed to be responsible for her while I’m online?  Yep, you got the 2008 Mother of the Year right here.
