It's Christmas break for the kids and I am not finding the time to get things done - including the blog. Messes are being made faster than I can clean them. Diapers are being filled faster than I can change them. Food is being eaten faster than I can cook it.
A giant to-do list looms over me and the chances to cross things off it are rare. For instance - I haven't balanced the checkbook in 2 months because I can't find one of the books. Elise plays in the drawers that stores them, and one is still missing.
I finally found my registration sticker for my license plate buried in a pile of papers. It should have been on my car since October. It's still not on the plate, but it is at least in the car now.
I'm getting a mysterious charge on Chris's credit card for freecreditreport.com. Guess what? It's not free. It's $15 a month, and it's a pain in my butt to get it canceled when the owner of the card is at war. All I need to do is fax over the power of attorney and then I can cancel it. Sure...in my free time.
Nothing is easy. Everything seems complicated. But each day I write this and see that number go up and I have hope that things will be easier when we reach day 400.
LET'S RUIN SOME BIRTHDAYS
