Don't Know What To Do With Myself

Wow - I'm finally alone. The day I was looking forward to has come. The big kids are in school. The Baby is at pre-school. For the rest of this month, I will have Monday, Wednesday & Fridays until 1pm to do as I wish.

And there is SO MUCH to do. The house looks like a refugee camp. There is clutter everywhere - piles upon piles of clothes, books, papers, boxes and bags. The toys have formed an obstacle course that is almost impossible to navigate. I have appointments to schedule, checkbooks to balance, bills to pay. There are walls and windows to wash, closets to reorganize. I could fill a commercial dumpster with the trash that needs to be disposed of.

The big picture hurts my head. I'll need to compartmentalize and that means a list. I guess I should start one.

Yes my friends, the kids are in school. There is no screaming, fighting, fussing, whining, running, yelling...or laughter.

It sure is quiet.

I think I'll take a nap.

About Me: I'm the mom of three: #1 Son (20), The Princess of Wails (17) and their baby brother - The Baby (6). I was a grad-student working on an MA in history until we were surprised - I mean blessed - with The Baby. I'll get back to it...someday (the thesis, not the kid - I have no choice concerning the kid). I am one of only a few people I went to school with who is actually using their history degree in my career (and to think my Father called it Basket-weaving!). I live a very hectic life amongst massive clutter. I call it a good day if we have managed to get home at night without losing one of the kids (no matter how hard I try!). Friends say I have a humorous take on life's happenings. The sad part is that what I write about is true. I laugh to keep from crying.
