Falling behind in life

523898_427143540690691_680257817_nI have been remiss lately on wishing dear friends happy birthday,  I have “finished” my Christmas Shopping only to realize I forgot people, and trying to remember what I need when I go to the grocery store has become a joke.   Lately I just can’t seem to keep up with everything.  You would think with all the facebook reminders and grocery lists and with speaking to certain people everyday I would remember it all.  But it just doesn’t happen.  Especially when you add in kids and cats.


I have had to run back out twice over the last week after getting home from work because I forgot we were out of kitty litter or didn’t realize we were running low on cat food.  I gave up sleep on Monday to watch my daughter’s Christmas concert and tomorrow I have to find a way to be in both kids’ classrooms at once for their Christmas parties.

What I really want to do is hide out at a coffee shop for the first hour and then show up for Garfield-Mornings-garfield-172375_312_318the second hour, spending thirty minutes in each class.  I don’t do crowds well.  I will probably suffer through the whole thing anyway because, I’m mom and that’s what moms do.

Afterward I will take them home and feed them again.  Then we will go meet up with their dad, step-mom, and baby half sister to go visit Santa.  Then we will come back home….you get the idea.  Somewhere in there I will try to remember to purchase more kitty litter because it looks like we are low again.

*sigh*  I now know why people spike eggnog.   eggnog_Flickr_izik

  1. I had to smile when I read the cat litter part as my daughter has indoor cats and always seems to be running out of cat litter. Mine is an outdoor cat so I only have to have it when I bring her in for bad weather.

    I hope you find time to enjoy the holidays…a little spiked eggnog sometimes helps!
