Ever asked a five year old to multitask??

OK, OK … so I stepped away from writing for a few days. Not intentionally, more by accident … life threw me one of those curveballs and I bobbled it, dropped it and have spent the last week trying to find it so I can huck it back to where it came from.
See I love to write.  Really, I do.  I love to tell stories and create possible scenarios in my mind.  The center console of my car is filled with 3 x 5 note cards that I’ve jotted various ideas on over the years.  I have purses (yes plural, I mean who doesn’t have multiple handbags?)  that hang on their respective hooks filled with writing prompts.  And I have a nightstand drawer stuffed with journals I’ve kept over the years.  Sidebar here, am I the only one out there that still prefers to write longhand?  Back on track now … So, as I haven’t done much writing this past week, I’ve felt a little lost – because like I said, I love the craft.  It gives me purpose and I feel satisfied when a page full of scribble can actually do justice to the thoughts in my head.
But, that curveball I mentioned, well it sort of came outa left field (which might make you wonder what the damn pitcher was doing out there when he should have been on his pitching mound in the first place!!)  Ho, hum … see, I’m off track again … Let’s just say I’ve been a little overwhelmed as of late and had to take some time to breathe in-between crossing off items on my to-do list.  And I have my five year old to thank for very bluntly pointing that out to me … The other day when I asked him to brush his teeth before he had finished putting on his shoes, he yelled back at me,
“Geeze Mom, I can only do so many things at once!”
Any thoughts as to where he might have heard that one before??
Make it a great day people, and remember to breathe out there!

  3. Ohhhhhhhhhh….just wait until the little lady is a teenager! We have 3 teen girls and one tween boy. It's a joyous period in our lives. :/
    Do you drink wine, by chance?

    Yep, I get that sassy attitude from my 8 year old too lol. I also like to keep journals to my kids. My daughter and I have one we pass back and forth we talk in, and then I have one seperate one for each of my girls I record various thoughts, memories, ect in here and there and will pass those on to them when they move out.

    Thanks for stopping by Theresa's Mixed Nuts. I am following your Facebook, G+, and GFC!

    haha that's hilarious what he said!! My son is almost 5, and I could quite possibly see him saying something along those lines ;) I love writing too! And have always had stuff scribbled around the house, or saved on the computer. I prefer longhand as well, but my hands don't take well to it anymore for some reason :( Thanks for following my blog! I'm following you back on GFC, Facebook, Twitter, and G+!!!

    Thanks so much for the follow and returned the favor, new follower here :) (I couldn't join GFC, but made it everywhere else)! But it's great you were able to have some time to get things done and get back into the groove of your writing again :) (I myself have handbags in the multiples and STILL love to journal on the couch/bed with my pen in hand).

    I prefer writing in longhand too! I just feel that the ideas flow better when I actually have a pen in my hand and writing down the words on actual paper. I prefer using a pencil though,hehe! By the way, thanks for following my blog, followed you back! Have happy weekend ahead!

    Thanks for stopping by Drama queen seams. Your story is too cute! Unfortunately GFC is going away so I don't have that anymore and I do have a FB link right on the home page of the blog. You can also follow me with Twitter. I hope that helps… Have a great weekend.

    Now I see what you mean, definitely know what you're talking about! But kids do know how to put things in the right perspective, innocently, for us don't they? Lol! Have a great weekend and I hope that ball becomes a bit more manageable. Thanks for following! :)
