I'm feeling like life here is a bit crazy at the moment. I could post about the meals we've had and how I've managed to stick to the menu is spirit if not in detail. I could tell you how I am trying to crochet a Piglet. I could tell you that daughter has finished two stuffed animals and I still can't get her to try a granny square. I could tell you about the household chores, but they're the same everyday. AND boy do I miss that sameness.
Truth is this time of year is insane for me. Since it is "tax time" I am working -- still at home, but logging some long days. Yesterday my day went like this:
1. get hubby fed and out
2. toss beef in the crockpot for stew and straighten kitchen
3. do 35 tax returns and somewhere in between---add potatoes to stew, help daughter with her driver's ed work, answer the phone lines, and .....
4. serve supper (burnt the garlic bread by the way)
5. clean up from supper and bake pumpkin muffins for last night and this mornings breakfast
I know it is nothing working mom's don't do across the world....just happens that I've never been a working mom....I've done this seasonal work, but that is it. I'll be honest and say it is a bit of mixed blessing. I love that it earns extra money for our family and we have some clients we truly help, but I do miss the serenity and luxury of my days being lived at my pace.
Today I've finished most of the essential morning chores and I have returns waiting to be done. I'm telling myself I'm taking a few minutes for me -- to read my favorite blogs, but truth be told I think I am dreading getting started...even though I must.
So if I don't show up in a few days please send someone after me. You'll know I'm buried under an avalanche of paper.
