So much to do, so little time… and some fill in fun

It’s been such a busy week again and I have no idea where the time went.

Lately, it just seems to race by and I barely have a chance to catch my breath or get anything done.

I could use a couple more hours in my days.

They’ve been filled to the brink.

I can’t wait to show you some of the pics from Labor Day weekend. My best friend came down from Kentucky. I’ve known her since 7th grade and we went to school together in Germany. She’s my forever friend!!! We had such a lovely time…

Middle had her first dance performance at the middle school half time show today. So, so proud of her…

Four of the five of us have some stage of sickness… Little One still has a stuffy nose but is otherwise okay, hubby’s cold is back, the boy earned himself a trip to the doctor today and was diagnosed with tracheaitis and I have had a sore throat for a few days… Middle is the only one who hasn’t caught anything yet. Fingers crossed it stays that way!

Still getting used to being up at the crack of dawn and all the new things at school.

I’m just pooped…

Anyways, I promised myself I would join Hilary for her Friday hop… so here it is!


Each week, Hilary plans on listing four statements with a blank for us to fill in on our own blogs. If you want to join the fun and come up with four fill in’s of your own, please email them to her at If she uses them, she will add you as co-host to the hop! This week’s co-host is Janice from Janice’s Footsteps.  She came up with the last two statements!

Hilary would LOVE it if you could please help her spread the word about this hop…. So, please tweet, FaceBook share, and add the linky to your post…

This week’s statements:

1. I wish I had ___ to ___

2. I stopped wearing ____

3. My favorite song right now is_________because________.

4. I always sing while________.


My answers:

1. I wish I had more hours in the day to get everything I need to done.

2. I stopped wearing contacts a few years ago because I was never truly comfortable with them.

3. My favorite song right now is “Everybody Talks” by the Neon Trees because it just makes me want to dance and sing.

4. I always sing while I drive, especially when I don’t have the kids in the car… then the stereo is blasting and I sing along to every song!!! 

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend.
We’ll be celebrating a very special little girl’s 1st birthday on Saturday.

    singing in the car is my favorite and actually kids and husband love when I get a good loud song singing LOL
    I hope you are able to catch your breath and get somethings done this week :]

  2. TBM says

    I also wish I had more hours in the day, to read, write, and spend with loved ones. Instead, I’m always rushing. Have a great weekend! I hope you spend your time how you want :)

    Oh I hear you on not enough time to get all you want done in a day’s time. I just don’t know how God did all He did in a single day. Maybe that’s why He’s God and I’m not, right? lol I wish I could wear contacts. One I have very dry eyes, so it’s not comfortable to wear them all day and two, my vision correction isn’t strong enough which means it would take many tries to get the right correction in contacts or so my doctor says. It really doesn’t matter because my eyes are just too darn dry! Hilary’s song fill-in made me think I should put a plug in for Monday’s Music Moves Me. Yep, I co-host this little blog hop and if you wanna start your week with a groove then you may want to come dance with us! Incidentally, Everybody Talks is new (to me) but it sure does make me wanna dance, like you! Hope to see you Monday! 😉

    Oh we are so much alike!!! Singing in the car, loving Neon Trees, etc. I do wear contacts—-Chris gave me contacts as a gift our senior year in college because he knew how I hated wearing glasses. I have worn them ever since and have never had any problems with them at all!!! And it always reminds me when I put them in in the morning that he loved me so much even then to do that for me!!! Awwww!!!! Happy Friday!!!

      That is so sweet. I am thinking about trying contacts again. Middle is doing so well with her dailys… maybe I should go for that!

  5. says

    In the same harried boat. Just when I think I’be got everything under control, I find another full to do list. One of these days, Susi, one of these days, we’ll be getting our Master’s in the art of juggling.

    I looked up from being immersed in my blog re-design today and was absolutely disgusted by the sight of my carpet! I had to stop and vaccum. Now I am refusing to even glance down at my kitchen floor. pretty sure that’s the hubster’s method and it seems to work for him. ha!
    really digging that song and video! :)

      I always end up getting distracted by house work. I can’t sit down knowing there needs to be cleaning done. Drives me crazy!!! :)
