Have No Time

For the past week or so, I've been trying to remember that I started this blog. I try and remember that it's fun to have interesting things to write about, so I've been bringing my camera around with me and taking pictures. I took a picture of my dog wearing safety goggles, which was pretty funny. I took a picture of the yummm chocolates that Disney World sent me for being a mommy blogger. I took a picture of the great books that Hachette Books sent me to say Happy Mother's Day, as well as my new imac and the piece of cheese my son ate without taking off the wax. So where are these pictures and blog posts, you might be wondering? Still in my camera, and still in my head, respectively.

You see the problem is, I HAVE NO TIME. This is not different from any other mom in America, so I'm not asking for special treatment. But seriously, I have no time. Sometimes I think that if I didn't have to sleep, I'd be able to get everything done that I wanted to. If, on average, I spend 7 hours each night sleeping, theoretically, I would have time to get another full time job, if I didn't need to sleep. How much could I get done in a straight 7 hours when everyone in my house is sleeping? I can't even think about it, the prospect of it is too exciting.

Which leads me to another point. When I was younger and in college, most nights I wouldn't even go out until 11pm. Hmm...why didn't I need to sleep then?

And here's the last point. I never thought I would see the day where getting something organized was one of my biggest dreams. I used to have high aspirations - become a partner in a big accounting firm, earn alot of money, have a great family. Of course the great family part has become a reality, but the most exciting part of my night tonight was putting all of the clean laundry away the same day it was washed!

My headache and I are going to sleep now.....
