Life: Just another excuse to put off blogging

Events: Class reunion in Las Vegas, seeing family in Chicago, visiting Grandma in Dallas, celebrating my birthday with Rafael relatives over the weekend (and fitting 13 people in our house)

New Happenings: the baby started crawling and sitting up, I got a new bike and I want to ride it instead of sit inside the house, I'm finally old enough to rent a car

Surprises: dishwasher dilemma, laptop still not working

Other than that, I'm still the one in charge of laundry and cleaning and dishes and children and bill-paying. And I still worry about using the right toothbrush. Starting next week, Chris works 4 10-hour shifts and has Fridays off, which will be great until he starts a full-time grad program three weeks later, at which point I'll actually have to have dinner ready at precisely 6:00 daily so that Chris can eat and then abandon me in favor of a solitary life of study, study, learn. Okay, I know he's not abandoning me, but it will be hard, anyway...

Other things besides blogging that I've neglected lately: personal hygiene, weight-loss, meal planning, keeping my house in order, my calling, all of my friends--you get the basic idea. All I'd really like to do right now is get a good chocolate fix and go back to bed.

I know I have a lot of catching up to do, and for some reason, I think I need to do it chronologically. We'll see if that happens. In the meantime, here's a picture to hold you over:

Life is what happens when we're making other plans!

Wow, both grammas, and two great-grammas in one month! That is a month for the kids to have in their journals! (The gramma too!) Thanks for the great fun! Mom

I think every mother can relate to this post on several levels at some points. This Motherhood thing is definitely a juggling act. Sometimes I have 6 or 7 balls in the air successfully and sometimes all I can manage is 1.

It is no fun when hubby will be so busy and it's hard not to feel abandoned (even if logically you know that's not whats really happening).
