Currently Taking Applications For A Clone Of Myself

Have any of you ever thought how wonderful it would be if you could clone yourself?  Like Michael Keaton did in the movie “Multiplicity“.  If you haven’t ever seen it I highly recommend it for a good laugh.  Below is one of my favorite scenes from the movie.

Lately I just feel like there are not enough hours in the day to ever get done what I want or NEED to get done.  Not to mention I NEED sleep and anything less than 6 hours just makes for me to be a complete crotch twat bitch grumpy ass zombie gif

I have tried putting myself on schedules…even writing them down to try to help me stick to them and inevitably, almost daily, something comes along that puts a quirk in my plan.

I am running around so crazy that I went to the store to get my daughters kindergarten supplies and grabbed the sheet for the wrong school.  Needless to say it takes too much time to return or exchange the stuff so I will just go get the items I don’t have and put the rest in our craft supplies.  And then proceed to face plant my head into a tree.

Below is a copy of the daily routine I am about to endure come Monday.

6am – alarm will go off.  Now this of course doesn’t mean that I will jump out of bed at that very moment.  This is just a reminder that the crazy chaos is getting ready to start.

Between the time I tear myself from the comfort of my favorite bed, set my feet on the floor, and 7:40am I will have gotten 4 kids up (granted one is a teen and can get himself up and ready but there are times he doesn’t hear his alarm clock), dressed, fed, lunches made, and then drive to 3 different schools, dropping the last two off by 8am.

By 8:15 I hope to be getting my workout on!  And until 11:30, when I pick up my youngest from preschool, having the freedom to get done whatever NEEDS to get done, that is just easier, without having any children in tow.

Now granted, I am looking forward that I will only have one child this year from 11:30 to 3.   ONE CHILD!   I don’t even know what that resembles.  I don’t even remember what it was like before I had children….oh wait….yes I do….

I have signed all the littles up for soccer this year, my oldest made varsity football, and my littlest little will also be doing tumbling.  She decided she wanted to try it instead of ballet but has informed me that if she doesn’t like it, then she will want to return to ballet.  My husband also wants to put them all in Tae Kwon Do.  “Sure honey let me just pencil that in right between brink of insanity and straight jacket.”.

I’m just kidding…who doesn’t love a full plate?  *picks mind up off the floor*

I will be attending 3 different soccer practices on three different days Tues, Wed, and Thurs, and then tumbling on Fridays.  Game schedules haven’t been posted yet but I am quite certain I will be running from field to field on Saturdays and of course Friday night high school football games.  AND trying to attend some of the out-of-town games since we live in a rural area and they travel to other towns for away games.

And somewhere in here I will need to find the energy to have sex with my husband.  This is where a clone WOULD BE GREAT!  And of course for other various chores like housework and laundry.

I think I just referred to having sex with my husband as a chore.  Ooooops.  *smirks*

AND FINDING TIME TO BLOG!!!

So if anyone is interested, I am currently taking applications for a clone of myself.  Pass me it around.

Thanks In Advance,

That’s A Wrap ~ December 19, 2015

That's A Wrap Week 2

Is anyone else looking forward to December being over?

It seems like I have something to do almost everyday and today I woke up with that dreaded heaviness in my chest which reared it’s ugly head at this same time last year.  And by New Year’s Eve I could barely breathe let alone move around and my husband had to celebrate without me.  I refuse to let that happen again this year.

I am happy to report that I have finally finished my tattoo sleeve on my arm.  I might just need one more touch up appointment but I am so glad to finally have it finished.  It has been a work in progress for over a year.

Tuesday I drove into the city and had my hair done.  They had my appointment messed up and only had me down for a haircut which thankfully they worked out because there was no way I was leaving until my platinum pieces of wisdom gray hairs were covered.  I can go without a haircut much more than the color.

My 4 year old monster M had her preschool program where they invited the parents and had us listen to them sing several out of tune Christmas songs.  It was such a cute performance and would have been so much more enjoyable for me if my monster M would have actually sang the songs instead of staring around the room like she wanted to be anywhere but there.

We had a major snowstorm come through this week and of course the littles and I went and played in it.  We tried to sled in the freshly laid powder  but because it was so fresh it wasn’t compacted enough to get the sled to move.  However, monster B found a group of older boys who had been sledding down it enough to compact it and they were nice enough to let him join in.  (If they hadn’t the mother bitch bear in me would have come out)  He got a couple good runs in but his poor sisters whimped out of anything to do with the snow after about 30 minutes when they suddenly decided they were freezing and wanted to sit in the Yukon to warm up.

I had another photo shoot this week with a wonderful family.  We shot it at a local park and although the sun was out it was only about 28*F,  so we moved quickly.  Their little boy was such an absolute cutie, full of life and made the entire time so much fun for me.  In the picture below, I didn’t even ask him to kiss his sister’s forehead, he did that all on his own.

I am happy to say that I think we are pretty much done with the wrapping of presents and are all counting the “sleeps” before the big day.  I myself am looking forward to having two weeks of not having to set an alarm to get up and get 4 kids out the door to school.  Although I am not looking forward to the sibling rivalry that I am sure will be endured daily.  I am hoping that the baking and crafts I have planned will keep them occupied until Christmas day and then I am relying on all their new Christmas stuff to keep them quiet.  **wishful thinks**

We also had wrestling sign ups for little monster M and B this week.  That will start in January and I am interested to see how well my 4 year old girl is going to tackle someone to the ground.  But she swears that she wants to do it so I support her.  Monster B participated last year and ended up taking 3rd place overall.  Maybe he could give his sister a few pointers.  My poor 3 year old is bummed that there is yet another sport that she is too young to play.  I am sure she is sick of hearing that when she is 4 she can play sports.

My working out has been put on hold the past couple weeks and I have no excuses other than everything else this month has been more inportant than myself.  Story of #mommylife.  Even my blogging has been put on the farthest back burner, but I plan to be back in full force come January!

Hope all of you have a fabulous week and a very Merry Christmas!
