Stop, it's too Late, I'm Feeling Frustrated

This weekend Darwin asked me what super power I wanted.

I want to freeze time.

You want to freeze time?

Yes, I want to freeze time. I want to pause everything and clean the house. Or scrapbook. Or nap.

Where'd you get an idea like that, Mom?

From an '80's sitcom. Duh.

Doncha wanna be ElastiGirl instead Mom?

Well, although I appreciate her awesomeness, I'd rather stop time.

And it's true, time is just flyin' by. I know people say this all time, but it's true. And I'm struggling to keep up. I want to keep up, but I'm not.

I want lots and lots of things. Clean house. And organized house. Handmade things. A finished quilt (cough, cough, nudge, nudge). Time to play family games.

And it's a tired, broken record. And I'm trying - really I am. I'm not nearly as down as I'm certain the post sounds. But it would be damn nice for my fingers to realize it's November and stop typing October all over the place.

And if I could give Aaron a superpower it would be to grow an un-scratchy beard. And not having hoarding issues. And get shit done lightening fast.

Yes, in that order.

oh yes, I'd have some of that power too.

(or the power to be able to eat as much as I want and not suffer the consequences... imagine that...)

Oh boy, I'm with you! Although Elastigirl is one of my favorite heroes, I'd rather have an extra hour each day!
Tip: get Aaron a sharpening stone or large emery for the beard, it makes post-trim kisses a LOT sweeter (my husband works at a hockey rink so he uses a broken skate-sharpening stone).

i have your issues, as well. and i wish my husband would get shit done lightening fast also.


I'd like that power too but only if I could get up the energy to be lightening fast with the chores-maybe that would be enough not to need to freeze time. I've been married 20 years and have never figured out how to deal with the hoarding issue. Everytime I broach the subject, well, it isn't pretty. If you figure it out be sure to share.

Cool blog as for me. It would be great to read more concerning this matter.
BTW look at the design I've made myself London escorts
