I’ve not abandoned you all.  I promise.

I’ve got to get on here and update you all on Halloween and our decision to “make” costumes this year, as well as talk about Josiah turning 12 weeks last Saturday, and 3 months old on Sunday and having his 2 month appointment today and how FREAKIN’ ENORMOUS he is…….

AND, I’m struggling with trying to be SUPERMOM.

I’m not super mom and I know it, just in case you thought I was really that misguided, but I am feeling utterly overhwhelmed.  Not to the point that I’m diving off the edge of a cliff or rocking in a corner with my hands over my ears singing, “na na na na na na” over and over.

ALLOUT ….would mean that I’d have to actually “STOP” and figure it all out…..and who has time for that, really?

I’m working on it………sort of!

Go look at my pictures over at Flickr and see how cute the kiddo’s were.

And Josiah…..isn’t he a doll?

  1. Hi, I have checked you blog off and on since hearing about Josiah (from Jon), I read your entry today and then received this email from my Mom and thought of you and your message today… I thought I would share it with you.

    I hope you have time to enjoy it!!! 🙂 (Oh, and I think it is soooo very true!)

    Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, “I’m tired, and it’s getting late. I think I’ll go to bed”

    She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day’s lunches.

    Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee
    pot for brewing the next morning.

    She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into the washer , ironed a shirt and secured a loose button

    She picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phone back on the charger and put the telephone book into the drawer.

    She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung up a towel to dry.

    She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom. She stopped by the desk and wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the field trip, and pulled a text book out from hiding under the chair.

    She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and
    stamped the envelope and wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her purse.

    Mom then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night solution & age fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed her nails.

    Dad called out, “I thought you were going to bed.”

    “I’m on my way,” she said.

    She put some water into the dog’s dish and put the cat outside, then made sure the doors were locked and the patio light was on.

    She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside lamps and TV’s , hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper,and had a brief conversation with the one up still doing homework.

    In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her 6 most important things to do list. She said her prayers, and visualized the
    accomplishment of her goals.

    About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no onein particular. “I’m going to bed.”

    And he did…without another thought.
