It's finally Friday

and it's been a rather long week. Both of my little girls have been feeling a little under the weather this week and that apparently makes them more clingy to mommy than ever. I don't know if that's what it is, or if they are both going through separation anxiety. I expect that from Fiesty; this is prime age for her with that; but Care Bear is 2 1/2, I thought I was through with this with her. Going to my paying job is becoming increasingly difficult and stressful for me when my children are both sobbing uncontrollably and clinging on to my leg before I go. What is worse; working part time so that we can have more money and making my kids miserable when I go, or being constantly stressed out and not having money, but staying home with my kids? I don't even think me not working is an option right now, but I'm about ready to say, "Forget it!" and just quit my paying job. I'm miserable when I know they are sad. Today I'll be on a bus tour around town for three hours helping acclimate new students to the University next year to our town, so therefore will be without a phone for 3 hours to check on them. I'll go through withdrawl. My heart strings are so attached.

I suppose since I am here at my paying job today, I should start doing what they pay me for. Here's hoping for a relaxing, enjoyable weekend.

GRRRRR!!!! Now I know why I haven't done a blog. I can't figure anything out; i.e., I can't figure out how to post pictures.....yes I downloaded that "Hello!" thing and it's not helping one little bit...I can't find a single instruction. I'm trying to post links, I'm following the instructions and it's NOT WORKING!! Maybe I'm not as internet savvy as I thought. *sigh* Thought there was at least one thing I was good at! ;-) J/K Anyway, if anyone happens to be reading this and can happen to give me advice on how to improve on this added irritation I added onto my life, please help!

Welcome to my blog!

I'm in the year 2005 and have just now figured out what a "blog" is. I like to consider myself internet savvy, but somehow this little phenomenon has managed to escape me. I'm sitting here at work today, on a fairly boring day, wishing I was at home with my two little girls who are feeling less than wonderful, and I just decided, "I think I'll create a blog." You know how that goes. So, I went to "ask.com", entered my question to Jeeves, "How do I create a blog?" and here I am! (Good ole Jeeves!)

Anyway, I'm not sure what the likelihood of me actually posting regularly on this blog will be; I only have internet access a couple of days a week, but whatever; we'll see.

For those of you who may be logging on to this blog expecting to find great and intellectual posts of the political persuasion, or world events, or such are in for a huge disappointment. Does this mean that I do not follow politics or world events? No, it does not mean that, but at this current juncture in my life, things revolve more around kids, laundry, kids, dishes, kids, wiping snotty noses, vacuuming, kids, going to the park and (yep, you guessed it) KIDS! So, the daily antecdotes revolving my kids and all that goes in the life of a mom in average-town, USA is probably what you will usually see. Add your own comments, anecdotes, and if you do have wonderfully intelligent comments to add, please feel free!

This is my SO CALLED LIFE! :-)
