The Long Wait

Well it has been some time since i have visited you all. My life has seemed to speed up at a time when i didn't thing that was possible. In the past 2 week we have had a ice storm, fever virus, ear infections, stomache virus, Tubes, and i have had some drama at work. I dailey think about a time in my life when is wasn't so crazy. I can't seem to think of a day like that in the past 10 years. I however do learn something everyday. It may just be a little something but I am always learning. I learned today that I do need to slow down for a few minutes everyday and enjoy the scearny. I have also learned that my son is growing so fast and i want to cherish these times with him. He is always saying new things everyday. Like "FAFA" and "AW MAN" those have to be my favorites so far. And last night we experience the first potty training adventure. He has been very intersted with the potty so my husband and I decided it was time to purchase one. So last night before bath time I sat him on his potty. He was a little affraid at first but then was okay. Then we played in the tub, got our pj's on and started our nightly barney movie. I went into my room and checked my email. My son came to his door and was saying Mommy, mommy, mommy....the he would get quiet for a sec...then he would start again. After about 10 minutes of this i decided i needed to get him settled back down and back in bed. When i walked into his room I noticed he made a discovery. He had taken his diaper off and was rocking in his rocking chair without a diaper. My only thoughts are that i must have stemmed from the potty. Any....enough of this....i must go to bed for know. I will try to not be so distant!!

Excuses

Some days I get overhelmed by every excuse I get from not being able to do something. It seems every where I turn someone is not doing something because of some excuse and guess what....I end up doing it. I guess at this point in my career I would have to say that I am a "Do everything Mommy". I am also beginning to think that another part of my job is to be the one who gives and relays all the drama throughout these companies. When ever something important needs to be asked to the boss, even if it has nothing to do with me, I have to ask it. It is just starting to wear on me the wrong way. This time of year seems to be worse than other times. But what I look forward to is the end of the day. Walking through the door at my sons school and seeing his smiling face waiting for me. Even if when I get home there still is a lot of work to do. It is much more pleasant to see him. Well I think that I may be ramling on..........

The Overview

Let me start by saying that every good mother never stops. Even if they stay at home they still stay busy. I am a mother to a 18 month old boy. I also work 40 plus ours running 2 CPA firms in Arkansas. From the moment each day starts I never sit still. I am either chasing Luke or chasing accountants. I have a pretty good husband but he is hardly home. Therefore when I get home with my son I still have NO relief. I am constantly trying to find new ways to get my stress out but at this time I have not found the correct way. Playing with my son in the evenings is my wind down time. That is after I make him and myself dinner. I guess at this time playing is my stress reliever. Well I have been very unsuccessful with my journaling so I have decided that maybe this is a good way to get some stuff off my chest. I love everything that I do but sometimes it is very stressful and tiring. That was the way I saw my mother raise me so I guess it is what I have always expected.
