i haven't had much time to myself lately. chris has opera rehearsals usually 3 nights a week, which leaves me with the kids alot. i feel like a single parent *sigh*. and i've been trying to get them to bed earlier, which is hard by yourself, but i think it's worth it to have an hour or 2 to myself in the evening. but i have a hard time going to bed before midnight, even if i don't have to be up with one of the kids, so the mornings are hard. i've never been a morning person, so when alexander wakes up at 8am all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, i really just want to put the pillow over my head and pretend it's all a dream *smile*.

and i didn't eat well today, so i have a headache. i know better than to let myself get really hungry, cuz it never ends well. and now i have a splitting headache. but i'm making yummy soup for dinner which should be ready soon, so hopefully the evening won't be as tedious. and hopefully alexander will wake up from his rest well-rested so that we can do something fun this evening. maybe we'll make cookies. that's always fun. the little ones have their own aprons, and they like to help me cook. and making cookies is fun, cuz someone gets to lick the bowl and spoon. and with cookie dough, alexander always seems to eat more than ends up on the cookie sheet *smile*. we'll see what happens tonight *smile*

  1. Ahhh, poor mama!! You have exactly the opposite issue my friend Tina has. She is struggling to find MORE time to spend with her daughter. It's too bad we don't live in a village and can share the "wealth." Good luck!!
