On Top of It All

I’ve been feeling kind of disconnected lately — I haven’t blogged for a while, none of my friends seem to do anything interesting on Facebook anymore and I’m way behind on newsy emails to faraway friends. I’d like to think that I’ve been too busy living my life to write about it, but if that were the case you’d think I’d have more inspiring things to say. Argh.

Things have certainly been busy: between my course, the kids’ school schedules and the usual round of extracurricular activities, the calendar seems to be full. Throw in a round of stomach flu (Justin had a touch of it over Thanksgiving and today it was Brayden’s turn) and things really get interesting. I just don’t get how working moms do it. I can barely remember when they have field trips or library days or gym class, I find it tough to find the time to sit with Justin to do his homework, and it’s always a challenge making sure everybody has lunches and snacks — and I’m a stay-at-home mom. There’s just no room for anything else in my head. How do other moms do all this and fit a career in too? Wow.
