Never Enough Time

The last few days have been very busy. This past weekend we spent most of the time outside trying to make our house look presentable. The grass needed to be cut, the garden weeded etc. In order for me and the kids to get work done outside, so much had to be bypassed inside. It just seems like the weekends go so fast and I never have enough time to get things done. On Saturday, we do our Target shopping and on Sunday we do our grocery shopping. After grocery shopping I have to prepare all of Mike's meals for the week. Everything needs to be cooked, pureed and frozen, so all his aide has to do is heat things up each day. Years past, I would use frozen meals, but then Mike had a problem with dehydration. After reviewing the ingrediants in the frozen meals, I noticed how much sodium was in them. Every once in a while I still cheat and use them, but for the most part, Mike's meals are home made. That takes alot of time, but in the long run it's worth it. The hard part is when something has to be thrown in that's not part of the schedule like running the kids somewhere, going to a different store etc. This throws the whole weekend schedule off and something invariably gets pushed to the side.

This month is also very busy, Brandon's Confirmation (this Wed. 5/9), my mom's birthday (5/11) Mother's Day (5/13) and Brandon's birthday (5/14). Factor into that all the shopping etc that needs to be done for all of the above....UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

There's never enough time....for everyday errands/chores, and for life.
