I am quite happy its finally Friday! YAY!
It's been a pretty rough week or so around our house... the girls were sick, hubby & I were sick. Now we are dealing with runny noses and don't even get me started on what the time change did (extra hour of sleep? RIGHT!).

There really isn't much planned for the weekend. Jaelyn has dance tomorrow morning and then my very good friend, Brenda is coming down our way for a visit. I'm excited to catch up with her!

And now for a little Friday Blog Hopping fun!!

    More Time Needed

There just are not enough hours in the days for me! Sometimes I just feel like if I had a few extra hours I could go so much more accomplished. I enjoy being a working Mom (nothing against those of you who aren't!), I enjoy my job for the most part but when I get home it's like the evening zooms by! My Hubby, the wonderful man that he is, cooks dinner mostly every single night and we will share clean-up duties. But usually after dinner is when my guilt kicks in... do I go manage some laundry? Do I clean up the house a bit? Put away last weeks folded clothes that are still on the washer? But then if I do I feel so mad at myself for not just sitting down and playing with Jaelyn & Abbie for a little bit before bath & bed time. Hubby & I also share bath time - and then after baths we all settle down in the living room to watch Barney or Caillou or whatever the girls choose for the night. They are both normally in bed before 8:30pm - don't ask how I got so lucky. The funny part is they will ASK to go to bed! After they are in bed, I can usually do a few things but then I also want a little hubby time and time to unwind myself maybe with a book or one of my favorite tv shows. I guess I just need to find a happy balance somehow and not feel so guilty because at the end of the day as long as I hear "I love you, Mommy. Good night".. everything is right in the world! 

Here are a few other fun blog hops I joined up with today... be sure to check them out!

It gets better, but I can appreciate the title of your blog. My oldest will be fifteen and I just can't figure out how that time went by so quickly.

Nice to meet you. I hope you have a great weekend.
