Yesterday I thought I was going to scream. My cell phone did nothing but ring. I was trying to make calls and then someone would beep in.
I was standing at the sink eating dinner at 7 p.m. and people were still calling me. I finally just turned my phone off. For the record I did turn it back on today.
So far today it has not been that bad. I should have known that by volunteering my phone would be ringing like crazy.
Today I went and got my car registered. I did not go down to base. I just called them and asked for an extension. I can't see wasting gas just for one little thing.
I also had to go get copies made for Nikki and run a few other errands.
I am going to spend the rest of the day just doing some stuff around here. I have been running around like crazy and not really taking care of my family.
I keep hearing that it is important to eat dinner as a family. I was even criticized for because we don't eat dinner together. This person said to me " well how are you going to know what your children are up to and when do you spend quality time with them?" My answer was less then nice.\
Then this morning I heard on the radio that the average family only eats together once a week. Heck we do not even do that! Like I said earlier I was eating a taco while standing in front of the kitchen sink.
So that got me to thinking, which is never a good thing. If we wait until everyone is home to eat dinner we might not be eating dinner until 9 p.m.
Am I the only mom that has children going in a million different directions and a husband who works crazy hours? I am strange because we don't eat together, or is our family becoming the norm?
Oh crap could our family be normal? I will have to change that. Sorry I was just thinking while I am typing.
