The Moment You Have All Been Waiting For

You know what they say about best laid plans...

well 6 freaking hours later I have my video post for you:

Today was insane in the membrane and I was really really hoping that doing a video post was going to work. Ah well... better luck next time.

Oh Jesus! I know.... it says it is still processing!!!

Cara said...

You are absolutely amazing! How do you do it!! I love the video post. I feel like you are just one of my friends chatting with me :-)

Good luck with getting everything done! And remember, to take a break every once in awhile. Which I know is probably very hard..

Mrs. Furious said...

Cara,
not every day is so nuts...
today was tough but sometimes you got to just keep steamrolling to get through it.
Honestly trying to get this video to post ended up being the most time consuming and stressful thing!

Cara said...

I still think if you are able to take care of kids you are amazing. I grew up in a daycare, and just trying to take care of them on a part-time basis was hard. I can't imagine full-time.

Heather said...

Good god. I seriously read your previous post with what you did today and was exhausted by the first four lines. Seriously. No wonder you're keeping that weight off -- you're moving a TON in addition to working out. And good strategy having Baby eat half your breakfast. I'll ask my dog if she'll do that for me.

Oh yeah, that's me. My life is crazy right now trying to get everything situated with school/work back in the routine. I hope you don't mind that I ordered you over to my blog. I just KNOW exactly how busy you are. SO I knew I had to butt in.

Mrs. Furious said...

Cara,
like your parents run a daycare?
"I can't imagine full-time."
people can't imagine for a reason... or they'd never have kids ;)



Heather,
so you might have noticed my pedometer... anyway I actually "walk" over 1.5 miles on days that I just stay home... no errands, no dog walks... just being a crazy freak.

Mrs. Furious said...

Katieo,
no... I was being complete sincere... definitely give me a heads up if I need to go read something....that was actually helpful!
and yes I think all stay-at-home moms can relate to the going back to school craziness... plus I really try to have one big task a day and with the eye doctor the laundry got pushed into grocery day=craziness.
But T-Th (which are Kid's school days) I am usually nuts. The added stress of trying to get ready and get there on time plus all the driving just leaves me with almost no leeway for doing what really needs to be done.

Cara said...

My mom ran the daycare, and good point ;-) hahaha

Mrs. Furious said...

Cara,
my mom ran a daycare too first in our house and then next door. I was older though so it wasn't much different than having you mom do anything else. I have been thinking about doing a home based daycare (and will if we really need the $) but I do worry about how much time it would take away from my own kids.

Cara said...

My mom ran it since I was about 3 years old and didn't quit until I moved out when I was 18. I think it was a great idea for her, because I always had her at home. Although I can say it is a bit weird to admit I started changing diapers at age 6. hahaha. It was like my own live baby dolls. hahah.

The only thing my mom missed out with me was going to some of my water polo games and swim meets in high school or after school events. But not more than most parents would miss from their regular job.

She watched a lot of sheriff kids, so it was weird hours though. Some kid was always at our house.

I think it is a great idea if you are willing to put up with other kids though. Well in the case that you need to, money wise.

I was just saying...(well actually sobbing)to my hubby last night that I don't know how others can do it. I am always stressed out and running around like a chicken w/my head cut off. I read a lot of blogs too and sometimes I say out loud "HOW DO YOU FIND THE TIME FOR THIS??!!"

so I guess my point is...you are not alone. Do what you can and know that we will still come back. :)

and if you lived near me, I would invite you over so we could stress together and admire each other's messy houses!

Mrs. Furious said...

Workout Mommy,
" I don't know how others can do it"
seriously! I'm being really pulled together ... ie I vacuumed... and it is taking everything I have to do that and feed the kids... the kitchen is a disaster and it always is I never even put the clothes away (and probably won't). I don't know what I'm missing... but it is impossible to do it all.

Mrs. Furious said...

cara,

funny... 6 huh?!... Kid better get ready for diaper duty!

eurydice said...

"here's the deal" haha.

my mom ran a daycare too, when i was growing up. crazy! (never doing that...)

Mrs. Furious said...

eurydice,
"never doing that..."
lol... yes it would probably send me over the edge... but if it came to it I could suck it up if it meant still being home with the girls (hell I'd make more than doing social work anyway!)

Mr Furious said...

Ugh. sometimes, I just cannot believe your mom ran a daycare.

Boggles the mind.

Mrs. Furious said...

Mr F,

lol... yeah... but I think with other people's kids she was actually okay.
