Its only 6 pm

and I am at the computer. Y isn't home yet, each of the kids of a friend over and they are playing / watching videos without bothering me. It is so rare that this happens that I am not sure what I should be doing. The uber-mom in me is telling me that I should be playing with A and her friend instead of letting them watch a video that they have seen 20 times. The almost non-existent housekeeper in me is telling me to go fold the laundry and pick up the toys that are all over the living room as we are having guests in two days. The slacker in me is telling me to play solitaire. But the voice of brother who said what's with your blog sent me blogging.
This quiet won't last long and I can't concentrate long enough to put in words some of the things I have been thinking about but at least I'm writing, which was the point of this in the first place.

Did you know

That the blogger spell check doen not recognize the word blog?

Once a month is better than nothing

That seems to be the average time between my posts. I guess at this point in my hectic life this is how it will be so all my two readers will have to be satisfied with it.

I feel like I am forever rushing and when I'm not I feel like I should be. I don't know where I am in such a hurry to get to. I rush the kids in the morning. Then I get to work. Start off slowly checking my emails, checking some blogs and web sites. Then I settle into work. At some point in the day I get the feeling that I need to hurry, I stay at work till the last possible minute, I rush to get the kids, then I rush with them to whatever afternoon activity we have, then we rush home, I rush to get dinner, get the kids ready for bed, rush them through a bedtime story, and after relaxing with Y a little we go to bed and start everything again at 6:30 the next morning. I try to remind myself that a little less time at work won't bring the world (or even my bank account) to an end. If I am little late, or leave a little early nothing will happen. If I spend 3 more minutes drawing for A or reading to T only good will come of it. I'm working on it. No promises, but I'm trying.
