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?
