Take a Number

I have a feeling that many of you are just like me: busy mom, busy volunteer, attempting to contribute a positive flow into the family finances with a small business, unable to stop adding new projects to the massive pile before you (with more taking up valuable space in your brain).

Sound familiar?

I'm having one of those weeks when I wish there was one of these on my kitchen counter:

Take a number

Oh every day is like that in this house. I feel all un-organised and overwhelmed. I don't think I will settle until all our BIG fund-raising is over in November...then it is all about Christmas.
Hope you get settled soon but I will be on the hectic route with you for a while! xxx

I hear you! I think it's just that time of year, as I've been reading similar things on other blogs as well and have also been feeling the same way. Isn't this supposed to be the time to settle into home and relax? Hmmph.

Good luck getting a handle on things!

I want one of those too! As I'm sitting here trying to read some blog posts I'm playing a game with my children telling them to stay here and sit on my lap and they are 'naughtily' running away from me and hiding. I don't know how long it will last... the things we do for a moment of peace!

I have one of these, but somehow Steiger has managed to figure out how to pull a "1" out every time... hmmm...

good luck catching your breath Krista!

Weeks like that remind me that I am a human with a 2K brain in a 5 Gig (no, make that Terabyte) world -- it just ain't all gonna fit!

But we do the best we can and keep it moving....

Familiar indeed! Somehow nothing seems too much when you sign up for it, but when deadlines are apporaching it's always too much. Right now I'm working my way through a big pile of should-haves leaving me with no play time for weeks. Still, a little pressure gets you moving, right?

That's awesome! I wish I had one of those in my office.
