Hello, my loyal readers. (all 3 or 4 of you, anyway!) I've been meaning to write, but I've been consumed with our basement lately. Decisions, decisions... about window treatments (Levolor Cellular, single cell in Daylight) and on shower surrounds (getting one more quote today, but we're thinking cultured stone with a privacy glass door.) Stay tuned for some "before and after" photos this weekend.

Other than that, I'm not sure where all my time is going. When I used to work full time I would wonder what on earth could keep a stay-at-home mom busy all day. And it's still true; I feel busy, but at the end of the day it never really looks like I've accomplished much. The living room is usually still strew with toys, piles of laundry sit on our bed waiting to be folded, bills still need to be paid. Actually, I've been trying to raise my awareness around time lately, but I haven't gotten very far.

Here's what I've noticed:
1. It takes 2.5 hours to get the boys out the door in the morning. That includes breakfast, packing Beck's lunch, clothes, my shower, and making the beds.
2. It takes a good 15 minutes to get myself ready for bed.
3. I take a 30 minute walk every night.

But that's only 3 hours and 15 minutes out of a 16 hour day. Note to self: keep better notes.
