Fractional Friday



It's that time of the week again...Friday...and all I can wonder is where has the week gone? I swear, each week time speeds up a bit more and I misplace more and more of my day.

So with that in mind, here are a few thoughts that are occupying space in my brain.

1. Little Miss - she's been sick the last few days so the hub and I have been 'tag teaming' her and juggling work. This makes for some tired parents.

2. Failing - as a mother, that is. There are moments in my days as a mother where I act, react, or overreact and instinctively know I have missed the mark. In other words, I have failed as a mother and it is only until that moment that I realize how very wrong I was. It is a horrible feeling.

3. Partys - October is next week which means our Halloween party is not far away. I've been diligently working on it behind the scenes so now is the time to start putting it all together. You can bet I will be asking for input in the near future, but who would have thought, something that is supposed to be simple and fun could turn out to be this much work? I sure didn't!

4. School - I am enrolled in school full time, working on my Masters. I enjoy school, but I have moments of 'total control' where I feel I can get it all done and make major headway and then there are moments of 'total laziness' where no matter what I do it's probably not going to get done and I will invariably end up behind the curve for a bit. For a while I was in front of the curve running like mad...then it kind of caught up with me and now I've been run over and am just starting to get up and dust myself off. It's much more fun to be in front of the curve!

5. Time - Just this morning I was wondering where it had all gone? Life has been crammed full of things that eat up my time and it seems I am running from here to there. I am not complaining (too loudly) because I feel I am very blessed to have the ability to do all that I do, but sometimes I just wonder, where did all my time go? Seriously, I used to have time to party with the best of them and keep going...now I'm lucky if I find time to shower alone!! haha

I hope everyone has an amazing weekend...hopefully this beautiful fall weather will hold for a while!

I can't believe it's Friday already!

I feel like I miss the mark a lot lately on the motherhood issue. You're not alone. Sadly, my daughter pointed out my failures to me in a very blatnat way that made me feel very ant-sized :(

I've read that a lot- that motherhood makes you really doubt yourself. My sister took jupitersinclair's daughters route and wrote a blog about what a horrible mother our mom is. My sister is a horrible person though.

And I remember that same school feeling. Sometimes you feel on top of it and others you feel behind the 8-ball at all times.

I just can't picture ever thinking that you are failing as a mom. I'm always amazed at how women can juggle so many things these days.

I hope you'll share pictures of your Halloween party? Our neighbors have already decorated for Halloween across the street. This weekend I want to put up some Autumn decorations around the house and outside.

Where on earth do you find the time for school? Did you figure out a way to stretch the hour?

You've definitely nailed it about time flying by (as we all rush from one obligation to the next). How in the WORLED did life get to be like this? Like you, I'm not trying ot complain cuz I DO love my life, but sometimes I just want to stop and...BREATHE. That doesn't seem too much to ask right? LOL And I'm not even a mom yet, I don't know HOW you guys do it all! I envy your energy!!!

Aww you never fail as a mother. It is part of motherhood to make mistakes from which we grow and learn from. So never say you are a bad mom!

Yay for you for school. CONGRATS.

I doubt myself as a mother EVERY single day. Seriously. I think it comes with the job title.

I hope Little Miss is feeling better now.
I know what you mean about everything piling up and flying by...it's like you turn around and say "How did I get HERE?"

Where has time gone? I cannot believe we're at the end of the year again...

You're working on your Masters AND taking care of little kids? Wow...I think I should stop complain about being too busy. :)
