What? Hey...there's a blog here....

I was reading my old blog and all the cool, intelligent things I used to post, and laughed. And felt a little sorry for myself. Life is too freakin crazy!!!! Either someone is sleeping over, or one of my kids is gone, someone has to have the phone, someone else needs my laptop...and the laundry. Sheesh. I could afford intelligentsia if I could rest  bit and find those lingering brain cells that the previous pregnancies left behind.

Anyhoo, I asked the kids if we could just have a week to Be. Just at home, together, without this or that. Then I shot myself in the foot with "Oh yeah, except the homeschool tie dye party." Then Josh reminded me that he starts his peer mentoring program. Every day this week, across town. Um...okay, yeah, we agreed to that months ago. Then x, y and z. WHY do they call it HOMEschool? We are never there!

LOL... I still don't know how you do it. I have 2 and can never get anything done!

Thanks friends! It's funny to have children for thirteen years and then suddenly mourn the loss of your brain cells. Sigh....

hi melissa, my name is melissa as well, and I also have 7 children...theyre a bit more spaced apart than yours, but Ijust *had* to respond...it is just the same over here (in italy) for us. Seems my braincells spark best when my smallies are just tiny and sucklin--I just cant get a spark going anymore these days,... but the laundry seems to overflow!

;o)

Another Melissa! With seven kids DOES make it rare....yes, the laundry is overflowing. Which reminds me, I swore I'd stay offline today and get caught up.

sigh.
