My Life

5:00am (ish)  - Wake up and go for 3-5 mile run.

6:15 - Shower and get ready for work.

7:00 - Head to work.

7:30 - 4:30 - At work.

4:30 - Leave work and race home

5:15(ish) - Maybe have time to pee.  Possibly have time to change out of work clothes.  On a good day.

5:30 - 8:00pm - Sit at football practice and agonize about all the things I could/should be doing at home while trying to appear upbeat and social. *I HAVE to sit at practice.  It's mandatory that a parent be present.  And so while Hubby is coaching Eldest, I have to sit and watch Middle and Baby.  Plus, the Momma Guilt has a stronghold over me.  I can't leave.  It's not an option.  (But I can bitch.  Oh yes, I can.)

8:10 - Arrive home with 3 tired, dirty, whiny and hungry boys.

8:15 - 9:00pm - Showering children; toweling off; pjs; snacks; snuggles; tucking in

9:00 - Holy sh*t it's already 9:00?  Veg out in front of TV, alone, while Hubby does the same down in his Mantown.

10:30(ish) - Bed.

Rinse, lather, repeat.

Things I have no time for:

Uploading the 100+ pictures I took this weekend for my parents' 40th wedding anniversary celebration
Even thinking about back-to-school shopping
Bathroom cleaning/laundry/vacuuming/dusting
Grocery shopping (the fridge is pathetically empty)
Cooking a meal
Blogging anything other than this drivel

So, my apologies.

I'll be back with more when my Pity Party (table for one, please!) ends.

I'm totally steering my boys away from football. I hear this same story from so many friends. It's overwhelming!

BTW, Getting a cleaner isn't a luxury; it's a necessity!

Life As I Know It said...

holy crap, they have 2.5 hour practices every night?
I have a whole *sports are too intense too young* rant just waiting to be written. I feel like, where I am anyway, sports are taken way too seriously at a much too early age, which ends up shutting out kids before they even have a chance.

Anywho...sounds like you need a vacation :)

Whew! I feel so much better knowing I'm not the only one with a list of the "Un-Done". Tomorrow, maybe you can squeeze in some time to breathe... or drink.

So happy to find my 10 mins to catch up on reading fabulous blogs like yours! Too bad I can't find time to write my own, but until school starts, I've discovered summer weeks home with the kids requires a whole new set of time mgmnt skills ;) hope you are well....

Rebecca said...

Is it naive of me to think that sitting through a 2 hour football practice is just ridiculous? I know my kids are not yet two, but's craziness that someone has to be there for that long!!!

Woof... that sounds awful! Looong boring days.

Replace sports with dance, and this was my family's situation until a year ago. For one whole year we dropped out of everything except one-night-a-week, one-hour dog training. People were shocked when they found out my kids were not involved in anything--but the year "vacation" was wonderful.

But I sympathize with the busy, same-old same-old routine, where there are not enough hours in the day to do all the things you need and want. I also sympathize with trying to appear social while your thoughts are elsewhere. You're certainly entitled to a pity party. Sending virtual hugs your way.

Are you going to be at BBC in Philly? Hope so--I'd love to see you!

I am not to this stage yet, but with twin boys I'm sure I will be at a schedule like this some time, whether it's football or something else. I admire your ability to make it work, and I hope I'm able to do the same in a few years when we're there too!

I can't believe you are finding time to exercise. I gave that up during baseball season and don't think I will pick it back up until hockey season! Very impressive.
We also watch TV in two seperate rooms. I often wonder about those couples who watch TV together- what do they watch????

This is Meghan's first year of cheering and, holy wow, there is a lot of time involved. And somehow I ended up a coach. So, on top of the normal practices and games, I need to help mix music and create a cheer and dance routine for competitions. Dinner rarely happens.
