behind

I have fallen so very far behind. Not just on this blog, but in everything! Sometimes I think to myself, what is the purpose of me staying at home...when I am never really at home? I just want to stop everything...stop Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, baseball, babysitting, doctors appts., school drop offs and pick ups. Just have absolutely no reason to leave the house for awhile. I feel like every day I am running around like a mad woman trying to get everyone where they are supposed to be. For example here is what today is shaping up as...

**drop Ivan off at school
**go pick up and deliver book orders to Connor's class
**go walking
** come home and take a shower
**go pick up Ivan from school
**go get my hair cut
** come home and try to do something worthwhile in the house until the kids get home
**help with homework
**get the boys ready for baseball
**go drop them off
**come home and try to get something worth while done
**Ben comes home and drops the boys off, kisses me good bye and heads off to the church for meetings
**get kids off to bed and fall asleep because I AM TIRED

And the reason why I am so behind is because every day is SOMETHING. All of my days look very similar to this one!

I am ready to take all of my kids out of all of their activities just so we can relax...and maybe I can catch up!

We had to stop putting the kids in so much stuff. I couldn't keep up and the house was suffering because of it. Me too! Make sure you're taking care of yourself primarily. You have yourself and the baby to look after and lots on your plate. Try to ease back a little if you can. You're important!

I completely understand what you're saying right now! The life of a stay at home mom is crazier than working full time somewhere else!

Since we moved, we haven't had the kids in sports and I LOVE it! I am still running them to school and stuff, but I really don't miss running them off to practices. Unfortunately, they miss it so we will sign them up soon. The things we do for our kids!!

Take care of yourself though!! You deserve it more than anyone I know!!

Be careful what you ask for. when I felt like I needed some down time, I was put on bedrest a few days later. Besides if stuff at home doesn't get done it is no big deal. It will totally wait. I hope you get a chance to rest. Take care of yourself.
