"Cuz I am barely breathin', & I can't find the air. I don't know who I'm kidding, imagining you care..."

Toppers. I hate them. Today, I am one. I hear people complaining about their busy lives and I nod, I shake my head, and offer my apologies. I tell them how I am constantly amazed at how they get things done. Then I go home and spout off to Jack about how "They think their lives are busy...well...!" I am pretty good at juggling, but last night, I realized I am in over my head.
I must document this so when my boys are older, but I am really old and require placement in the best of assisted living facilities, I can bust this out.

Soccer for G (same nights as F)
Soccer for F (which I found out AFTER the fact, is now involves traveling)
PSA Board, Fundraising events across the board
PSA Make and Take Stamp Fundraiser
Homeroom Mom
Yearbook Committee (of 3)
Cub Scouts
Choir
4 hours/wk Lego League (COACH--that is an entirely separate post)
my 2 church callings (while minimalist in nature, are still on my things to do list)
Bishop's wife (which I have decided is its own calling)
Reading for VT (my PT 10 hour a week job)
2 Book clubs
PUPPY
never mind, just life, which means cooking, cleaning, loving, and laughing (and finishing THE OFFICE 4 before season 5 starts)

Oh, but wait, I am not pregnant or nursing, so I guess I the cartoon lady wins.

(ps-who crooned the title?)

You know---I think your visiting teacher should be doing better. It sounds like she's not being supportive enough. I'll have to check on that. Hope today was good. Oh--it was pack meeting, right?
