Jack of All Trades, Master of None.

Whew! Life has been kicking my ass. I'm busy. Like, have lost complete control of my overly organized ways because I'm too busy doing "things" to organize the things I need to do!

The kids are in full swing with school and I have successfully avoided almost all classroom responsibility this year. Yay, me! I honestly don't know where I would fit it in if I had volunteered for Room Mom or PTO.

Since school has started I feel personally responsible for the death of several trees. I have never seen so much paperwork in all of my life. Stacks and stacks and more stacks of paper that overwhelm me to the point that I shove it all into a corner and swear I'll get to it later and it's not later enough yet. I'll get there... eventually.

This new "system" has caused me to fail at parenthood on a few key things that include but are not limited to, dressing my children appropriately for school pictures, not getting the Munchkin signed up for tennis on time and completely missing out on a Halloween festival at the twins school....

The Holidays are just around the corner and I know things will get busy, but busy in a different way. A hang with family, get to eat lots of yummy food and swap gifts kind of way. I'm really looking forward to getting past the work busy and getting on with the hustle and bustle of the holidays!
