Sometimes you just need a minute!

While I was at work tonight my babysitter texted me and asked if we could meet at the middle school when I picked up my boys. Her daughter had a volleyball game at the middle school she wanted to see. My son had basketball practice, but that didn't start till 6. Normally I would pick up my son from her house at around 5, stop home for a few moments, let my son change while I checked my online stuff, like e-mail and Mylot and Facebook, then we'd head off to basketball. But I know my babysitter doesn't get to see her daughter play, so I agreed to head up there early to meet her. When basketball practice started I really didn't feel like sitting at the school for a whole hour waiting... so I came home so that I could have a few minutes to check my online stuff. I've been home for around 15 minutes now, and I've checked my online things and am ready to head back up and pick up my son from practice. I just hate not having those few moments before I head out again! Do you ever feel that way?

@birjudanak That is so true . It is nice that we plan everything . However , when something comes up , we should be flexible as to how we will insert it in our plans .

@katsmeow1213 I am usually the one that is organised so does not need to rush. But now and again time still manages to rush us.

@gudheart It's not that I'm not organized, it's just that my kids are busy.

Yeah, I hate rushing, but I'm sure your babysitter appreciated the chance to see her daughter play.

Actually she ended up being late because she ordered a pizza and it wasn't ready on time.

I have felt like that in the past. At this time my life is slower most of the time.

I tend to gt bored when things are too slow... but I also don't like when things are as busy as they have been. I hate getting home at 9pm for the first time all day.

we don't have that problem thank god but I can relate to what your saying & yes if I had your schedule yeah I'd have to just say HOLD it ! it's time for a breather here all this go go go has got to me I hate that. now that I think about it it's that way when we go pay bills it's we go here then we go there then we have to get over here to pay that GOO LORD STOP! by the time we get home we're beat cause we do everything in one trip step by step before coming home & the last stop is getting us a bite to eat so we can crash when we get home.
