It's Madness!

If you ask me to do something, by all means, let me do it... Don't second guess me and do your own version "just in case I forget", and don't flat out do it because you'll probably do a better job. Face it, you probably could do a better job, but at least give me the chance to try and do as good a job as you would. And on the flip side, if I ask you to do something, just do it! Mmm K? For those of you SouthPark junkies :)


Why must the police put up those electronic Speed limit signs? You know, the ones that FLASH IN YOUR FACE when you are going over the speed limit? Umm, don't you think I know that? I am in a hurry, and honestly, there are no cop cars around, and it is a pretty deserted road right now, so I am going to
Why is it that your kids will leave you alone when you are sitting there doing nothing except staring at them, but the minute you decide to read while you are sitting there, they have to come up and bug you? Or, why is it that they could be off playing having a grand old time, so you think "Hey, they are all occupied how about I go try and blog..." So, you sneak in your room, turn off the sound of the computer so they don't hear it start up, get all signed in and start reading and Argh! they are right there, "Mom, can I check my webkinz?"
"Um, no, go play you were playing just fine before and I am on the computer right now."
"Well, I'll just wait here until you are done..."
Talk about a killjoy!
It is only 11:30 in the morning and I am on my fourth poopy and fortieth nose wipe. When Jayden is cutting teeth, that's what happens. ALL the time.
So, that's what's bugged me this week. How about you?
I'm just sayin'.

No kidding. That just happened to me. I told someone that I would have this project done by the Sunday after I got back from SF. Well, Thurs morning she called and said she found someone else to do it. She didn't think I would have it done. Then why ask me? That happens all the time. If they know they can't delegate, then why try? Don't insult me, just do it yourself from the beginning.

And, the kids? wow. Every time I pull out my laptop to blog, they are RIGHT there wanting to do pbskids or something.

And the nose? BJ's starting shots because I am tired of wiping his nose. I totally understand.

My kids are always bugging me when I'm trying to get stuff done. And when I'm not. They just always bug me. Maybe I need to give them some more attention.

Justin is getting three teeth right now, so I feel your pain! And, I struggle with wanting to get fun stuff done, chores done, and spending time with the kids. I feel like I don't have time for all three. Has anybady mastered this and care to share with the rest of us?
