Well, I am completely bummed and plan on being even more behind on my blogging that usual after this news.

My work internet blocked my blogger account.

This may not seem like a huge deal, considering I shouldn't be blogging or reading blogs on the clock anyway - and I wasn't. But at my lunch times sometimes I would take a minute out of the busy day to write something and relieve some stress. This was a treat.

Now I have to find the time between an 18 month old non-talker, an almost 4 year old "life of the party", a husband that claims he doesn't get enough attention anyway and a dirty house. :)

But here I am. I am bound and determined to keep this updated at least bi-weekly. I have a few seconds now only because my husband took the oldest out for a bit since he is leaving me alone tonight to attend a bachelor party in Austin, Texas. I am being a single mom tonight.

And I am actually kind of looking forward to having them all to myself and then watching whatever I want on TV.... with a good adult beverage of my own of course.

We have a very very busy few days ahead of us. I get to ride the guilt wave again all the way to a quick overnight trip scheduled in Oklahoma City for work, then I am back in the office for one day and then getting ready for my best friend's wedding in good ole Las Vegas.

Yes, I did just get back but this trip is going to be amazing and of course, its completely necessary.
I have my sister, my mother, my Nana, my hubby, my best friends etc all on one trip. I am so excited. Lots of good stories hopefully to come on that.
But before that and after my OK trip, I have ONE day to unpack, repack for me and get the girls ready for a weekend at Paw Paws .
Plus, I need my roots touched up, my eyebrows waxed, my toenails painted and need to get tanned....
Of course none of this will probably get done. I have no time. No time but yet I am sitting here writing this. lol

By the way (random thought inserted here) - have any of you ever wondered how to fold a fitted sheet????
Seriously... I crumple mine up and throw it in the closet until it's needed. I thought we all did.
Well, my new twitter BFF Kim, who is linked on the side, created a blog on this very subject as she is the queen at it. Take a look. You won't be disappointed!!!!

Blocked?! Well that sucks!

Can't wait to hear all about Las Vegas. I haven't been in some time. I need to go donate again soon. ;-)

Speaking of fitted sheets... I sort of fold mine, but it never looks all "prim and proper" like the flat one!

I don't know a mother, whether stay at home or working outside, who doesn't feel the press of time on their shoulders. Like you, I can't get on the internet for personal reasons at work and "free" time at home seems to be at a premium. I just hang in there and treasure the "me" time that I can get; usually with a good glass of wine!

Oops, I messed up somehow! That first comment by "anonymous" is me!

Ha! You're cracking me up! Thanks for the shout-out on the blog! :) But, in all seriousness, this whole mom thing is just plain hard. It's hard if you stay at home, it's hard if you work full-time, it's hard if you work from home. It doesn't get any easier. I'm starting to realize we aren't meant to do it alone. :) I'm here for you girl, and I'm glad you're there for me!

Love ya!
