too much + not enough
it's good old thursday again. mae is at a full day of childcare, sophie is in her cot chatting away to herself (probably looking out the window) before her nap, i am sitting at the table, surrounded by household mess and to do lists and i just can't seem to muster the energy to even decide what to tackle first. there are a backlog of phonecalls to make, miscellaneous chores on top of the endless cleaning and tidying that comes with life with kids, showers to take, hair to wash, groceries to put away, coffee beans to grind, clothes to mend, buttons and snaps to apply to jackets and overalls, four quilts swirling around in my head, fabric printing methods and designs i want to play with, and really, there just aren't enough hours in the day. thursdays are a bit of a catch 22 as mae still has a nap at childcare, meaning that she won't got to bed until 8:30-9pm tonight so i really only have sophie's two 1.5 hour naps to get stuff done, which, don't get me wrong, is GREAT but you know, it's not really a huge chunk of time. i guess it would be longer if i would stop faffing about on this here keyboard and actually start doing something. yes.
