Ready, set, GO!

Life continues to amaze me. I have three kids. They take up a lot of time. Like a tremendous amount of time. And since being here I've had some moments where it's been rather depressing...and the advice I get? Busy myself with stuff that I like to do. Lol. Do you know how easy that is to say?

Run-down of my day
(in a 24 hour period)

2:00 am- get porky out of his bed to feed him since he is still gracing me with early a.m. wake up calls
6:30 am- get porky out of bed to feed him
6:45->7:30- lay in bed and wake myself up before B comes in to ask if he can get Miss C up
7:30- visit with Miss C when she comes into my room, try to keep her out of the bathroom since she loves playing in toilet water
8:30- get Miss C something to eat because she can't wait any longer and I can't listen to her screech at me any longer
9:00-feed porky
9:30- put porky down for a nap
9:35- get myself something to eat, fight off Miss C from trying to eat my breakfast too
9:45- tell B that I'm getting in the shower and to keep an eye in his sister and to be nice to her
10:05- get out of the bathroom to the sound of Miss C freaking out over who knows what, speak yell at B for picking on his sister and listen to him tell me he wasn't
10:30->12:00- referee two kids as they beat the tar out of each other play between the living room and bedroom.Count down the minutes till Matt gets home for lunch.

12:00->12:30 LUNCH

12:30- Matt puts kids down, I grab porky because it's time for him to visit before his meal
1:00- Matt's back to work and I sit down to feed porky
2:00- put porky down for his afternoon nap and try to figure out what I am going to "busy myself with"
-edit pictures
-learn how to use photoshop
I've got an hour people! An hour before the kids wake up and the insanity ensues! And the time frame after this hour is a blur as by this point I'm ready for the day to end and Matt to get home and dinner to be over and kids to go to bed. Holy run on sentence! But you get the point. I'm not complaining by any means. It's just another thing to laugh at when I'm asked why I don't do more with my life:) haha!
Pin It!

hehehe :) It'll get a little less crazy in the quasi near future ( perhaps around September) and you will be able to find more then just an hour of time to yourself during the day :) you just gotta make it to september :)

Jenn said...

Enjoy the madness! Like stated above, it's fleeting. I say use your hour to nap. Or, now that you're a super cool rugby player, practice running into walls.

LOL, LOL, LOL.....all of the above !!! Now you know why your parents acted so "crazy", it is in the ordinance of "lifes cycle". What did you think mothers did with their time? Entertain kids and try to stay sane !!!!! You will survive it like the rest of us. Hugs & love.

Haha, oh porky.

I was telling my roommate that I read your blog even though I don't know you and said, "Yeah, but, I think we'd be friends in real life" Granted, I don't have children or whatnot..but I once wanted to play rugby.
