Not Enough Time in the Day!

I’m finding lately there are not enough hours in the day to truly accomplish all that needs to get done (oye!)

I thought summer was a time where things slowed down a bit – in my case it’s been the complete opposite. Running every weekend, working late, coming home to housework, gardening, blogging :) and more.

We’re a family of two right now, what will it be like with more? Double the laundry, double the mess, double the food (but lets not forget – double the love).

I joke with one of my cousins and call her super mom, but she truly is. She has four kids, all involved in sports, a small zoo (16+ animals), a husband who works late and not to mention a career of her own ... Oh and did I mention no nanny?! She's doing it the old school way (herself) and she still manages to get everyone where they need to go, run a household, and survive the mayhem that is her life (and she loves it!)

Where can I order my super hero cape from? I've been feeling like I need one lately.

I’m a big note person, things won’t get done or remembered without notes, but lately my notes have notes. Thank god for the iPhone and the calendar reminders!

The carefree days of summer seem like a distant memory. Sleep until noon, eat, work on your tan, hang out with your friends and repeat the very next day. I'm lucky nowadays if I get home and I'm able to enjoy dinner out on the deck (after I shop for it and make it of course). 

Don’t get me wrong, life is good, but it’s hectic. If I ruled the world (god help us all), I would implement a relaxing summer for everyone – life is too short after all, shouldn't we get to enjoy the warmth of the summer?! (Especially after the winter we had here on the East Coast).

What I would do to be at the beach right now with a margarita in my hand. 

Until that dream can turn into a reality, I will put my super woman cape on, and focus on working hard now so that I can play later.

If anyone else knows a better way to fast track retirement let me know – I think I would make a great 30-year-old retiree.
