I’ll start by saying that while I think we’re a pretty special family, there’s nothing extraordinary about us – except maybe our crazy schedule. Yes, every family is busy. Lots of families have multiple jobs and obligations. We may just be a little busier than most. Is that enough to base a blog on? I don’t really know. I just know that whenever I get into a conversation about how our life goes, I always get the same response: “I don’t know how you do it.” So I thought maybe, just maybe, I’d add something else to the schedule and write about how we do it – which is mostly with laughter and no small amounts of coffee and insanity.
Don’t misunderstand me – I’m not saying I’m working on something constantly. I make no secret of the fact that I’d rather sit and watch an NHL hockey game while posting on Facebook than fold the mountain of clothes in the chair beside me. And we make time to have fun. This is not going to be a lesson on how to manage your time. This is going to be a reflection on how we survive our crazy life, and to share what is usually a pretty humorous existence with anyone willing to read.
And maybe, if I know I’m documenting things where the whole world can see, I’ll fold that mountain of clothes so that I can brag about that, too.
Next post: meet the “boys” and me.
