If there was one thing I could have more of, no questions asked it would be time.  Sleep, better clothes, and a fast metabolism would be close runners up.  I feel like there's just never enough time in the day.  

I always feel like I'm in a huge giant rush.  A mad dash every morning to get out the door, at work I always feel frazzled, like there's just not enough time to plan my lessons, grade my tests, file my paperwork, and my desk pretty much looks like a paper factory exploded on it.  Some days I have to stay late just to finish up and other days I bring my work home with me.  

Then it's the rush ride home.  I walk in the door and pretty much it's time to whip out a boob, rush to get dinner on the table, unpack all my crap from the day and then pack it all back up again for the next day.  Sometimes I feel like I spend the majority of my time just getting set up for the next day. Get the kiddies in bed, straighten up, and then get them back in bed. Then I have to sort through the bazillion papers that get sent home from Isabella's school every day. And Andy always helps, but it's still a lot. 

Forget about the millions of pictures in my camera that need to be uploaded.  The blog posts swimming in my head.  The projects I want to start.  The reviews I need to write.  The eBay crap I need to ship.  The attic I want to organize.  The coats that no one ever puts in the damn closet.  

But I always take at least an hour every night to myself to spend with Andy.  We have a glass of wine or a cup of tea and we watch a show or two.  I need that each night.  But man wouldn't it be nice to have an extra hour a day or a whole day just to myself.  I probably still wouldn't make a dent in the things I want to do, but it's nice to dream isn't it?

I have been wanting to write a similar post...but I don't have TIME to do so. I couldn't agree with this more. It doesn't help that we moved further away from my job, so my previous 20-minute commute is now 60-minutes in good weather.

We moved into our new house at the end of July. Most everything is still in boxes. Hubs will ask where a certain toy is - PACKED! Boots for the snow that fell last week - PACKED!

I would love to take a week off from work (and of course, not affect my vacation time) and clean / organize our house. Then I feel like I will at least be starting with a clean slate instead of just adding to the madness with unopened mail and the endless paperwork E brings home from school!

There are so many things I also need to do, that I just don't have the time for. Like working out. Or studying for my last exams to get my license. But the kids come first and snuggling with them and reading books take priority over the other things right now.

I have to do something though soon, because otherwise, I'm going to lose my mind!
