Is what I wish I had for things like scrapbooking, organizing my house, trying out new recipes, and making other little random crafts. (Val, you just had to add bows to my long list of to do's didn't you! *U*) I finally got to finish another couple of pages for Kate's scrapbook. Justin came home early, Zach was playing outside, and Kate decided to take a three hour nap this afternoon. I am 6 months behind, and cringe at the thought of even being behind. Not only am I behind on one, but two. What you start for one, you start for the other, otherwise the guilt will be felt when they grow up and ask, "Where are my pictures?" I can't have that now can I?
I don't even have kids in school or extracurricular activities, and I am already feeling the stress of being "SuPeRmOm." The kind that can juggle everything that is on her plate and all at the same time. Be in 5 different places in one hour and have time for a bathroom break. Cook dinner, feed a baby, and have the house picked up by the time Justin gets home. My type A personality is having a hard time coping with it all.
What's even better is I use the excuse of "Oh when I get a house and have an extra room to leave my projects out in, I will be on top of it all." or even better "When the kids are in school, I will have some extra time to be able to put towards things like this." Could I be more right here, or just extremely far off?
The bad news is that I don't think it gets any easier, and the good news is the only one who really cares if I get it all done on time is me. SO much for my so called list of "To Do's." At least I have good intentions...
