working momma...

I don't know how working moms do it!  Or stay at home working ones!

About 4 weeks ago I found out that our priest was having his 25th anniversary celebration of his priesthood.  I offered to assist and literally have been helping a couple to several hours a day!  Really!  All those little details to make it look flawless don't come easy.

And it has made me wonder how moms who work do it.  These past couple weeks I have been "too tired" and we have gone out to eat or just scrambled on what to eat.  I haven't done a real housecleaning and Nate may have watched a little to much tv.

I'm glad my "working life" is coming to an end tonight.  I don't know if I could handle it anymore!

Thank you Ryan that I do not have to do this every day!  Maybe I needed this to help drill into myself how blessed I am to run errands with Nate, go grocery shopping, clean the house and just play!

Being a working mom definitely means some days I don't cook, the house is often a mess, and Aurora watches a little too much TV. The good part is she has a great time and learns so much at daycare and I love my job... but I honestly think being a stay-at-home mom must be just as hard!!!

They were so lucky to have your help planning the party - I hope it all goes well and everybody has fun!

Amber, I can only imagine how hard it is to be a working mom! I know staying at home is not for everyone, but this little time for me working helped me to realize what I need to be doing. for me. to keep me sane.

But, I do forsee a few other event planning stuff in my future...

I loved being a stay at home mom and am now finding I have too much time on my hands! But I felt that one of the things I did was just to make everyone else's life run more smoothly. And I had the best job of all. You are doing a wonderful job Lexy!
