Making the Switch

If you are a working mom, you know how it is. You go from being an employee at your day job, then automatically you are supposed to mentally switch over to being a mom, then a wife. Sometimes Most of the time, I just need a few minutes in between to organize my thoughts and make the switch.

Yeah, right.

The only time I get is the one minute drive to my mom and dad's house to pick up Macie, then off to pre-school to get Zoa. Then we throw in any errands I might have to run, then home, only to start on dinner.

On the flip side, I really enjoy cooking. It relaxes me, as long as I don't have any kids at my feet or toys in the kitchen. It is my downtime.

Back to the point of this post, Monday I was driving home. We have about 20 minutes in the car between work and home. Sometimes, this can be alot of fun, or if it has been a cRazY day, it can be a very long and stressful 20 minutes.

Picture it:

Macie and Zoa are talking non-stop. Nit picking. Yelling. Encouraging each other to be louder.

Me: Girls - PLEASE be quiet. I need to think. No talking!

Macie: What do you have to think about?

Me: I don't know, Macie just be quiet.

Macie: TELL ME!


Macie: You are not going to think, are you?

Finally, they were quiet.

Only for a moment though. But sometimes, that is all you need to regain your sanity.

Yeah no crap. I dont mind cooking at all or even cleaning up the mess afterwards, partly because I LOVE to do dishes, but I hate trying to come up with something to cook. And its even harder when no one else wants to give an option but of course always has something to say :)

So do you like it this way? I thought I would change it up a little since that pic was a little older. I changed the border a little to match the letters cuz I thought it was too light. I like it tis way but I liked it the other way too so I am trying to decide. lol
