Where does the time go?

You'd think I'd feel more refreshed with the time change and getting to sleep in an extra hour, but no such luck. I went to bed around 11:00 last night (with the time change so normally 12-ish) and slept until 7. I had to be at the church at 8 a.m. to warm up. The service was great as always and then I went to the adult faith formation class. I probably talked way too much in it, but I had much to share. Maybe it's this whole blogging thing that makes me want to share so much. Maybe I just feel the need to. Maybe I just seek attention, appreciation, or acknowledgment. Maybe I should shut up already.

After Mass, I came home and fixed Josh's internet. It wasn't working. His windows messenger thing is not working and I can't seem to fix it at this point... which drives me crazy. But I had to give it up so we could head to Amarillo. He wanted some more practice driving in heavier traffic. We also had to buy a pair of dress pants to wear for speech tournaments. Do you know how hard it is to buy clothes for a skinny teenager? Most stores don't carry mens sizes below a size 30 waist and even those are difficult to find. Josh is actually about a size 28. The boys department don't have much in the way of dress clothes and most sizes go up to a 16 which is too small. Finally at Dillards we found a pair of boys pants that were a size 20. We had lunch at the mall then went to Walmart to get him a red shirt for the musical.

After that, he had rehearsal and I took a very brief nap. Josh called to picked up about an hour later and then we went to check the air in the tires and put air in them. I figured he needed a lesson on that. I had plans to actually cook dinner but my kitchen is such a wreck I didn't want to make an ever bigger mess. I had plans to actually get it cleaned and I got started on it and now it just seems like a hopeless battle. Of course I'm sitting here blogging instead of cleaning. I still have to hem Josh's sailor pants tonight, start some laundry so that I won't have to go to work naked, and it's already 8:30. I better get in gear if I'm going to get to bed at a decent hour.

My kitchen at the moment needs a helping hand as well. I let the dishes pile up in the sink these past two days. I hate it when I do that as it bugs me every time I walk in there. I also need to clean the fridge.

You have an excuse. You work your butt off constantly and are raising a teenager. I, on the other hand, have plenty of free time. It is plain and simple that I hate washing the dishes. I can’t wait until I move into my new house which already has a new dishwasher installed and ready to go. Woo hoo!

Hope you had a good day at work and that it was light when you left the house. I still haven’t set my clocks back and probably will not. I didn’t last year. I hate the time change. One of the joys of having an income and not having to work I guess.
