NO, I'M NOT BLOGGING (insert wishful thinking here).
RATS! I'm STILL working on our small business's business plan. Only now we have a deadline: Friday.
Dennis and I are a team: I

And then it's time to make dinner, go to practices and games, bathe people and talk about our day.
Then Dennis and I sit on the sofa and go over all the things we didn't get to talk about during the day. I fall in bed after 11 and say to myself, "RATS! I was going to go to bed early tonight!"

When Libby-10 went to bed last night she said, "Mom, did you get my laundry done today?"
"My laundry. I have no clean clothes."
"Oh. Laundry. I am so sorry. I will do it. I promise."
So last night I sat revising while throwing in some laundry. This morning I threw everything into the dryer, and then into a basket.
It's still there.
This reminds me of when I had my first baby. Life was so different from what I was used to, I had no idea how to plan my day to get even the basics done.
My "basics" are a bit different nowadays and include a whole lot more driving (but hey, at least most everyone can wipe themselves!) but the concept is still the same. I alternate between the exhilaration of the new challenge, and being knocked on my you-know-what!
Change is good. I know it is. And it's even better when you have family support from someone who's been there before you (thanks, Rachel Anne!).
I'm adjusting, holding on for dear life, and trying to enjoy the moments of insanity (like those 2 a.m. feedings I thought I'd never, ever miss - but who could ever explain it - I do!).
It's all good.
