A mom's work... well you know the rest!

I know I shouldn't say this out loud and I know that I'm being a bad influence for my kids, but homework is going to have to wait!

I have been flooded with "things to do" and I'm starting to think that I might want to slow my role a bit.  I haven't had time to go to the schools to volunteer my time this year.  I seem to not have time for anything with the school days being so short and the kids getting home starting at 2:10 rather than the 4:15 time they got off the bus in GA.  That's 2 hours off my day!

Try to hit the pavement or the gym most days out of the week right after I drop Miss Missy off at school in the morning, and by the time I get home, take a shower, check my email and FB... it's lunch time for Hubs.  He's home and I can't do homework during that time, of course.  So, he goes back to work and most days, that gives me maybe an hour before Miss Missy needs to be picked up.

Then it's "Them" time.  Can you read this?  Can you sign that?  Can you help me do this?  blah blah blah!  UGH!

One they are home and in homework mode, it's time to get ready for soccer practice 4 days out of the week.  

Monday - no practices - this is going to be the only day of the week I can do homework!
Tuesday - Miss Missy
Wednesday - The boys
Thursday - Miss Missy
Friday - The boys
Their games start this weekend.

Miss Missy is going to miss her first game because we're taking a mini-vaca for the 4-day!  Yay-ay!

It's been really busy lately, but I'm looking forward to adding in a little volunteer time at the school and a few things through ACS as well.  AND I run a FB group for the wives of Ft. Huachuca.  Oh and of course, I do the Soccer Mom thing for 2 out of 3 of the kids' teams.

Gotta Love being a Stay at home mom!

Don't you just love it when people ask what you do all day or what your job is, as if you just sit around all the time, watching TV?! LOL! I don't know about you, but I haven't been this happy for a weekend in a long time! :D

Enjoy the vacation. You seriously are booked! Maybe you've got to make sure that Mondays are "you" days too.
