Tales & Woes of an Overworked Mother

By | June 19, 2013

It’s crazy to see myself writing here, when I can barely remember to post on my own blog.

You see, I have very little time to sit down & write much of anything. My reasons include too many jobs (three), too much laundry (it’s never ending), & three two children (must remind myself that counting my husband is a child is not a real option). At least the people distractions are cute.

my adorable distractions

Just looking at that photo reminds me of approximately 500 other things I need to be doing right now. Like scheduling new photos. That is from a photo shoot some time last year. The little guy probably has four more teeth than he did, and my big boy will be five in July & has already lost a tooth. I did not handle that gracefully. And did I leave laundry in the washer this morning? Those jeans on my husband need to be repaired, I think.

That’s not to say I don’t have ideas. I’ve had one in my head for a while about a girl who works at a coffee shop & falls for a former baseball player. (It would seem we Bunnies like our ball players.) I even wrote an introductory chapter for it . . . two months ago. I haven’t written a single word since then. Mostly because all my ideas come in the shower or when I’m driving. I’ve considered keeping one of the bath crayons my kids have in my shower so I can write down ideas, then go back to them when I’m dry & have paper in my hand.

Which means I need to run out & get new bath crayons, because I’m pretty sure my two year old ate the last one . . .

What a cute photo!! You’ve got adorable kids (2-3 of them) ; )

As for distractions, I feel for you, really I do. I’m not married and have no kids but I still have issues finding time what with real life and all that…
