Just. Five. Minutes.

I need just five minutes to...BREATHE.

I am straight out busy lately and it's driving me insane! I can't wait for things to settle down a bit so I can actually BREATHE and relax.

Of course the main thing I am busy doing is being a busy, busy mama to my wild, active, crazy 15 month olds. They are SO. MUCH. FUN. But, exhausting at times! I love running around after them and hearing their contagious giggles day after day. It's the best sound and the best feeling in the world.

On top of that, I have to run the household. I have to do the dishes, clean the floors, keep up with the mounds of laundry we have every day, fold that laundry when it's washed and dry, feed the cats, clean litter boxes, take out the trash, make dinner, clean up from dinner, pay the bills, run errands, go grocery shopping...the list goes on and on!

And...I'm in school full time. Crazy, right? I took about a year or so off...I stopped when I was 7 months pregnant because it was way too much for me at that time, and of course had to take the first year of the twins' life off because I would not have been able to do school at that time. I started back in January, and it has been a ton of work. It's difficult to find the time to sit down and get homework done and to remember the deadlines for when work needs to get done, when tests need to get done, etc. I do all online classes, so luckily, I can stay home and do the work from my home computer, instead of worrying about finding child care or paying someone to watch the twins while I go to class. I work on homework during nap times, or when the twins are in bed for the night. Occasionally, if they are being cooperative and playing nicely together, I can bust out some homework when they are awake and playing. Occasionally being the big key word there. ;-) But, this semester is coming to a close in a few weeks, so I will have a little time off to relax before the summer semester begins. But boy has it been difficult to juggle that on top of everything else!

And to top that...I have started a freelance writing job, working from home, to bring in a tiny bit of extra cash. Ridiculous, right? Like I need something else that takes up the time I don't have! We don't NEED me to do it, but I enjoy writing, and the extra cash doesn't hurt, even if we are living comfortably without it.

Oh, I almost forgot the most important thing...trying to concieve that third baby! That department isn't going so well...the 50 mg. of Clomid from this month didn't even make me ovulate! I should be getting good ol' Aunt Flo at the end of this month, and my doctor is going to raise the Clomid dosage to 100 mg. and see if that does anything. Let's all cross our fingers it does something!!! The 50 mg. made me ovulate just fine last time, so it's weird that it did absolutely nothing this time around. And it seems every time I turn around, another friend is pregnant. That's another post for another time though.

On a side note...I am working on getting a few new reviews and giveaways up and going, so stay on the lookout for those!

Look at you go mama! You're an amazing woman:) I hope you get some time to breath and relax a little. Keep up the good work though and I'm hoping you ovulate soon!
