Sometimes it feels as if life is just getting away from you. I work, care for the kids and there seems to be no time left over except to collapse into bed and watch a little TV or, as is more often the case, fall right asleep. In fact, right now the boys aren't even playing any sports and I still seem to be lacking time. I will say that I spend a lovely 15-20 minutes 3 days a week visiting with a friend of mine when I pick up the littles after work. That time alone is such a gift.
I do cook actual dinners about 4x's a week. But the house is still trashed and special projects aren't getting done. In fact, I haven't even started the holiday newsletter. A fact made all the more appalling by the lack of one last year. The lack of any holiday missive actually. Between the Bar Mitzvah, job interviews & the holidays themselves I had no energy left for sending out holiday cheer. I suppose I should send a little something out this year.
I've also really wanted to post here on a more regular basis. It actually makes me sad that I don't take the time to do it even when I intend to. I think it's a combination of being out of practice, putting too much pressure on myself that I need to say something worthwhile and not just waste everyone's time with bullet points and the busy factor. I barely get on my computer at home anymore and at work I'm usually pretty busy. Ok, that's a lie. I am busy but I could totally find the time if I was so inclined.
Anyway, here is a little list of some of my current favorites for you:
My new boots: Velma in dk. brown. Now I just need them in black. (purchased on sale, plus 1/2 off when buying son new sneakers AND a $10 off coupon. - I ROCK!)
Coffee that's so worth the shipping: Back Dog Coffee (My favorite is the Tanzanian Peaberry - but they're all yummy! I tried them at a Virginia Wine Festival and was more excited about the coffee then the wine.) Also, I have a code for 5% off your order for new customers (to give to friends and family) - if you're interested it's 46UVLC2F.
For the hard to buy person on your list: uncommon goods
Music I can't stop listening to: Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog (bought for $5 when Amazon had it on sale) I'm totally annoying everyone in my life because I insist on playing it over and over.
New TV show I actually think about days before it's on again: Life on Mars - I think I'm in love with Sam. Also, this show is so good, so funny, just WOW. Love it.
Ok, off to do a little work before going home.
