Never enough time

I have to sit back and laugh at my statement from the other week. I really did think that once school started back and all but one of the kids were gone all day, that I would have more free time. HA HA HA!

If anything I seem to have less time to do anything.

All those appointments that I put off all summer are attacking me. If at all possible I refuse to take all the kids out to the doctors, dentist or eye doctor at the same time. They just don't get along in the car and waiting to be seen is no fun. I wait and do all those appointments in September or May.

This year I have already jammed in 5 eye doctor appointments, 4 physicals, and 2 dentists appointments Since school restarted. Not to mention the 22 YES 22 home appointments that the kids have had here at the house.

We have also thrown in two rabbit shows, a BBQ and having my 14 month old grandson stay here while his sister was in the hospital for 4 days.

Ray has my engine torn apart and spread throughout the garage, and if you have kept up on my blog you know my fear that it will still be sitting there this time next year. So far it has been 4 1/2 weeks for a job that was to take longer then a weekend. Our truck is also broke down so Ray and I have had to share his blazer.

We both need to be out of the house at the same time tomorrow and I told him yesterday that he can not eat, sleep or pee until my van is put back together. He did sleep, eat and pee but has been at it pretty much non-stop for the last two days now. Hopefully he will get it running before he comes to bed tonight.

So, where ever I got the idea that once school started I would be able to accomplish more in my day??? I guess I am, it is just not the stuff I wanted to do. Yes well, come next September, all my kids will in school all day. Then I know I will be able to get MY things done, of at least that is the plan.

  1. You're right. There is NEVER enough time, whether you have ten kids or two. I always thought that when my kids were both in school I'd have more time. What I found was more stuff to FILL my time. When they were both out of the house, I thought I'd have more time-now I'm more tired than I was when they were both in elementary school. Being a parent isn't easy!!

  2. I found my self laughing on all accounts on your post. I have 4 and thought the same thing every year (I never learned that even when the kids weren't in the house all day, things were never accomplished as I had envisioned ;P.

    And about the car thing, my son has been putting an engine in a car for me for about 6 months now :P, the car I've had and been driving for 4 1/2 years is finally giving up and dying so if he doesn't finish soon, I will be riding the bus :P. He has a young daughter, so I know his life is busy as well, sigh. It's always something isn't it :P.
