Not enough hours in the day.

It’s been an entire week since I last posted anything and I have nothing even remotely ready to post again for who knows how long!  I have been so incredibly busy the last few weeks that I just feel like I haven’t had the time to sit and think, not to mention write anything.  On the one hand, it’s wonderful that I’ve been so busy with work, but on the other hand, I’ve really missed being able to read everyone’s blogs and do some writing of my own.

I am sincerely thankful for anyone who visits over here and I’m sorry I’ve been such a dud lately, but I can’t remember a time I’ve been busier with my out-of-the-home job.  I promise I will be posting some stuff soon, including a special post about my mom for Mother’s Day and the fact that my older son has discovered religion and what we’re doing about it.

Despite not having time to indulge in my own interests or hobbies, I did somehow make time to put together a birthday gift for my 5-year-old:

legosIt took forever.




No wonder Isaac’s balls never looked like this–he never had any kids!!!!

I’m seriously beginning to question my judgment in regard to what I would deem “fun” toys to purchase for my kids at Christmas time.

I mean honestly, what the hell was I thinking buying this for two boys ages 4 and 6????

I really don’t know the answer.  I guess I pictured them being mesmerized by the fact that every action has an equal and opposite reaction and finding themselves entranced by Newton’s 3rs Law of Motion.

Really?  Really Michelle?  Have I EVER seen them entranced by anything other than Cailliou or Scooby-Doo???

For now, I’ve learned that while I do in fact know my boys very, very well….I also let my completely impossible hopes and dreams of them sitting still for more than 3 minutes get in the way of reality and get it way, WAY wrong a lot of the time too.  And while my initial reaction to seeing this was not “good”….I think I may just keep this on my desk to remind me of how wonderfully chaotic life can be at times.

And to just go with the light sabers next time.
