No time to scrap

Life is busy.

Crazy busy!

I remember two years ago feeling rushed and hurried all the time but add another baby to the mix and it is a whole new ball game.

I get home from work around 4:30pm on the nights that I don't close the store up, and it is a race till bedtime.

Dinner to be had, baths to be had, walks to take if time permits and stories to read.

Not in that order of course.

Thank the heavens above for my Mom because honestly, I think I would collapse most days if I didn't have help.

I think the biggest issue is my non sleeping through the night baby.  If he were sleeping I would be getting at last 7 solid hours.

In reality, Not. So. Much.

And I'm sure we are weeks away from it, but J's whole virus has sent us spiraling backwards in the sleep department.

I think what I find the hardest is carving out that itty bitty piece of time for me without it cutting into quality time with the kids or hubs.

It is really hard to do.

Really hard.

Last night I actually stayed up till 11:00pm to watch two episodes of Glee and one episode of The Bachelorette, and I'm paying for it big time today. 

Droopy eyelids are not attractive.

But alas, I'm just trying to find that balance. 

And seriously who wants to miss out on all the drama that happens on The Bacholorete with those crazies from Canada...Not me I tell you!

And that my friends is my story for today.

You are totally engrossed aren't you?


I'll leave you with some recent crafty-ness.

And by recent, I mean three or four weeks ago.

And I am not even going to correct my spelling or grammer.


Nighty nighty.



  1. That page is adorable.

    I'm so glad you have your mom to help. Finding balance is hard under ideal circumstances...but when you're crazy-busy? Forget it!

  2. I laughed out loud at the Bachelorette comment!

  3. I actually think you are doing great! You have written a blog post and done a scrap book page. Way to go! You are way ahead of me. The page is great by the way.
