Plea for More Time

Does anyone have an extra 4 hours a day lying around somewhere? I could really use it...


My laundry is piling up, I have been blindly paying my credit card bills with no regard to actually verifying the charges on there (so NOT CPA-like), my kids have had chicken nuggets from the freezer 5 night in a row for dinner, I have 5 million shirts in the Fan that need to go to the cleaners, we need milk, I need some more Afrin (shut up), and by God, I really just need some "me" time.

A new Sophie Kinsella book is coming out soon, so I've really got to figure this out soon. I can't tell you the last book I read that was not related to raising children or didn't contain colorful pictures.

Ideas seriously appreciated.


Pin It!

Just be all, eff this! You kids can make your own nuggets! The laundry can go to the laundromat! And I'm going shopping on these credit cards!!!

Just kidding. Maybe not the best idea :)

Me time? What is this new and strange concept? The only me time/reading time I get is when I'm pretending to poop...even then, I either hear Abby yelling Mommy or someone outside the door asking if the bathroom is free. I think I'm going to clean out the dark side of the closet, set it up with a blanket, pillow and flashlight and hide in there. I was just reading the review on that Sophie Kinsella book and I might have to check her out. I'm always looking for new reading material.

On an unrelated note, what did you decide about the blog and Mr. Sasha? Also, did you bling out the Fan yet?

Wish I could help you there. I'm so excited to read the new Sophie Kinsella. Have you read "The Undomestic Goddess"? LOVED it! I'm with Kate...I think I'll go hide in my walk-in closet. There's a light and a door. Close it, and voila! Mommy-time!

I saw you are a Sophie Kinsella fan. Check out Madeleine Wickham, she writes under the name Sophie Kinsella and has some great books as well. I enjoy your blog very much!!

OK. I have a deal for you. I'll take your children, your dry cleaning, your laundry, your grocery list and your messy house and I'll make all of them perfect. However, you must pay MY credit card Bill. And yes, I realized I capitalized it. It's a country it's so big...

Do we have a deal?

I didn't know about the new Sophie Kinsella book! I am PUMPED!

Just tell your kids they are going to have to work for those nuggets...those little hands can fold laundry :) Seriously, just put them to bed and take your "me" time. All that stuff will still be there waiting for you tomorrow (unfortunately)!

I think Kate has a wonderful idea! Just set yourself up in the closet and don't come out until they are at least 'tweens.

Seriously, once they hit that stage, they want nothing to do with you so they aren't clinging to you and they have more stuff that you can threaten to take away if they don't help you out. : )

Sounds like we need to plot a kidnapping. Send up a smoke signal when Mr. Sasha is home and I'll do a drive-by and nab you for lunch and shoe-shopping. And I won't bring you home til naptime. Mwooohahahahaha!

Now who's rocking the comments!!!

Throw the laundry in a closet where no one can see it! Order a pizza (the kids need some variety in their diet) and call the dry cleaner to do a pickup.

Now brew up a nice cup of tea and read yourself a good book.

Love-your slacker pal from Jersey.

Why can't we just clone ourselves...that would be the best solution i can think of.

Thanks for the heads up on the book...looks great!!
