not the forgotten blog

I can’t believe (well I sorta can) that life got away from me and I didn’t blog last week.  I love the Christmas season, but it gets a little nutty.  Adding to the annual nuttiness, this year school gets out early enough that we can travel before Christmas (I promise it sounded like a great idea back in June).  I am feeling a little overwhelmed by all that there is to do and enjoy this season.  I am trying to remember that every Christmas tree is perfect in the eye of the child.  The kids will remember the feelings, not the details.  right?!?!?

Have a joyous Christmas season with your family and friends.  I cannot wait to celebrate the new year with you!

Talk to you soon,




leave it to a kid

As a continuation of the time machine post…

I was in the car with my kids, and my almost 5 year old comments that there are two  mommies.  He is brillant!!!!  The mommy driving the car, and the one in the mirror.  That was the answer to my time machine dilemma.  I  need one of me to get all the chores, errands, and work done.  The second one of me will play and have fun all day long.

So I guess I need to clone myself.

Enjoy your weekend,

Talk to you soon


inventor of the time machine

December is one of those months where we all want a little more time to get things done and a little more time to enjoy this wonderful holiday season.  I can’t help but think of the Back to the Future movies and Doc’s time machine.  But Doc’s time machine may be a little too efficient.  After all, I don’t need years of more time just a few minutes.  So maybe giving up sleep for the month is the answer.  Clearly that isn’t effective.  I would be a zombie walking around, not enjoying or accomplishing anything.

So, the best solution for me is to be effective with my time (bye, bye facebook games, see you in January) and enjoy what is important this season.  I know the house will not be as perfectly decorated as I would like, I won’t have time to bake all the cookies I want, but the memories will be there for the children to cherish.

Talk to you soon,
