And the race is on...

Why do I do this to myself.

I'm still the newsletter editor for CaRWA which I love due to interesting articles and other perks. Just one more year left of it and then I'll miss the extra secret board meetings, an outsider again. ;)

I also signed myself up to do a Communications Degree online. 2yr course but afterwards I have a better chance of being able to work from home going what I love - writing.

I've also signed both boys up for soccer and then swimming...and I have to "volunteer" for something with the soccer or pay the $100 option instead (not an option). So I tried to pick something hat hopefully won't take up too much of the limited time I have left - line marking. Whee!

All this while I act as a single mom as hubby works up in the oil field as a medic, though he ia currently going through a process to get a job in town (everything crossed here, including eyes...maybe a few hopeful spells...).

And the best part of it all...I do it all to myself...willingly.

Someone check me into the mental home so I can get a break!

But it's funny because any time I have a break for too long I seem to fill it with something else to drive myself crazy. I enjoy a lot of it, except honestly the stuff for the kids. Don't get me wrong, I love watching them have fun, get the exercise they need, etc, but I kinda wish it was all relegated to the weekends instead of making my already crazy weeknights more insane. And with the soccer, on different field with overlapping times. *facepalm*

Anyone else out there doing this to themselves? Or am I the only one that seems to fill up space so I have no time to write for "fun?"


  1. I remember those days. juggling baseball and soccer schedules and swim lessons. Now my babies are all grown up.

    All I can say is,this too shall pass and I am so impressed that you get any writing done with little ones. I never could, so no advice from me!

  2. Writing.... uh... what is that? Do you mean the stuff I have to do for school? So much for my goal of getting something in for the Golden Hearts this year!
