The Spin Cycle: Relax? I don't do it

I'm late. I'm late.
For a very important (Spin Cycle) date.
No time to say "Hello"
I'm late. I'm late. I'm late.


Sprite's Keeper asks "How do you relax"? That's a good question!

Life here tends to get mighty busy. Even right now, while I'm on maternity leave. I'm a mom of two and a full-time student. Ordinarily, I also work outside of the home. Add in the household chores and you'll see I'm not left with many extra hours in the day. I rarely get enough sleep. Sometimes, I forget to eat. In my spare time, I wish for spare time.

Relaxing tends to take the form of study breaks. And as luck would have it, I study at my computer. So how do I relax? By reading all of your blogs, of course! I love them!!


Okay. Got to go. The kids are asleep, and I've got an exam in a few short weeks. Must study now.


And ...

I'm late. I'm late.
For a very important (study) date.
No time to say "Hello"
I'm late. I'm late. I'm late.

Alice in Wonderland! Love that line!
No worries, with two kids and studying, you've got an overflowing plate!
I'm adding you to the Relaxation Spin and to the Favorites so people can see you.

I came over earlier and was sad that you hadn't posted. But, I so see why. Oh, dear. You've got it going on and you've got a lot of it. Also, would you believe I've never seen Alice in Wonderland? What's wrong with me?

Don't forget some mom time in that mix.

Casey said...

Ack, you ARE busy! I had to take night courses for the first six months after my son was born and also still work full time during the day, it's a wonder I'm still sane. Good luck finding some time to relax....

It's so hard to study as a mom. That was my biggest trouble when I was in school.

Wishing for spare time in your spare time. I like that. lol

That's the same way I relax anymore. Whatever works :)

Momma Trish said...

Sprite's Keeper - Thanks, lady! I'll try to be on time next week.

steenky bee - You must see Alice in Wonderland!

Captain Dumbass - What is this "mom time" of which you speak?

Casey - It's pretty tough to combine work, school, and parenting. I feel like something's got to give, but I don't know what it should be.

Rhea - Yeah, it's really hard to study when you have kids. They don't care a wit that I have an exam.

Heinous - I'm glad I'm not the only one!

I completely agree with you, it's like reading humourous short stories.
