Will I Ever Catch Up???

It seems that the past few months have just flown by! I always think there will be time tomorrow...always tomorrow. But with three little boys, a husband who works 3rd shift, a dear grandmother in a nursing home, a jewelry business, laundry, dishes...and on and on...there's never enough time to finish the things I set out to finish, let alone to start something new.

I have abandoned my scrapbooking...they are all officially a year behind (and I have 5 going that I used to keep up with). My house is a mess, my laundry never done, jewelry all in pieces laying ideas never finished, a grandmother I need to see more often then I do...and boys, always boys :) But, my oldest son is starting kindergarten this fall. So what did we do this week?? We went to the beach and the zoo and Chuck E. Cheese. Because you know what?? The scrapbooks and dishes and jewelry and laundry can wait. It will be there...but my 5 year old son will be 6 soon...and then 16 before I know it, and then 26 and gone. So this is what I do. Of course, my grandmother...there's always my grandmother. She will be gone before I am ready for her to be too. So tomorrow. Always tomorrow.


  1. Jen....I miss seeing you. Debbie tells me you're fine. Sounds like you've 'inherited' my past life with my two boys. Hang on to every single second. Before you know it they'll be grown and gone, and you'll mourn the loss!!

  3. yes, it is amazing the connections we have now!! I love it! I couldn't imagine being a stay at home mom without the connections I've made on here.
