A Common Problem?

How busy are we?

Geeze! I was just telling a Friend that many times I wish that there were more hours in a day, but then it hits me!  If there were, then we would just be busier anyway and probably not spending time where we Originally wanted to, to begin with…

For all you Grammar Sticklers, I KNOW that the above sentence is bad, structurally, but…yes, here’s my excuse 😛 I am trying, trying to catch-up here.

I know, you can put those violins away, you’ve heard this story before, but in all seriousness…


When I wasn’t working outside the home – because Boy does one WORK In the Home – my days were short and I didn’t feel that I got much done, but somehow I made time for my Blog…

Now…Dear Lord!!! I am spreading myself waaaaaaaay too thin! 

I realized this yesterday evening as we sat down to Dinner and I wiped my Little 2-yr old’s nose (she is under the weather with a cold and cough), looked across at my 3-soon-to be-4 yr old as she spilled her Sinigang on the table that her Lola made, and was informing my Other Half that I had a meeting yet again.

I realized at that moment that I was not home!  That I was not helping out with the Girls.  That if it were not for Lola and Lolo’s assistance, my home could literally be falling apart!

We are about 30-40% “moved in.”  Thus, the house in NO Where near where it should be.

Laundry needs to be done.

Everyone is sick.

I have not made dinner in God-knows-how-long! 

I haven’t had a full night’s sleep in, well same as above!

I have not checked my JK’s pouch this entire week! In fact, since Wednesday from Last Week!

I have not been keeping up here.

I am on way too many committee’s at Church, at School…

There’s a saying in Spanish…My Papá Eliseo would be so proud!!!  He would have a saying for every single situation and knew so many!!  If only I could remember them all 😦

The saying is:

El que mucho abarca, poco aprieta.

Literally translated, it means, he who covers too much, cannot tighten.  LOL!! Hilarious, isn’t it?
In English, you could say:

Jack of all trades, Master of none.


Do not bite off more than you can chew!

Either way, I’m sure you get the gist. I am trying to do so much and accomplishing nothing!

Last night I had to drop a Committee!  Needless to say, it was not looked upon kindly and I know I’ll be getting a phone call trying to convince me to continue.

But, and please excuse my language here, I do not want to do a half-arsed job!

If I’m not in it 100%, then I’d rather not do it. 
Moreover, I want to be with the little ones.

I’ve made the mistake of not being there already! I don’t want to do it again, and I AM! I need to stop it NOW! Before I blink and they too are in their teens!

Today we celebrate the Feast day of St. Michael, along with San Gabriel and San Rafael…the Archangels!

And I need your help, guys!  (I have a quick confession, I am partial towards Gabriel, because my Son was named after him ♥)

Each of these archangels performs a different mission in Scripture: Michael protects; Gabriel announces; Raphael guides. Earlier belief that inexplicable events were due to the actions of spiritual beings has given way to a scientific world-view and a different sense of cause and effect. Yet believers still experience God’s protection, communication and guidance in ways which defy description. We cannot dismiss angels too lightly.


I need Much Guidance, San Rafael! I need someone to help me to Hear what I’m to do, what I Should be doing, San Gabriel…and yes, San Miguel, I need you to protect me from any “Misguidance” from you-know-who.

Life…it’s never boring is it?

And this quote I just Had to share with you!  It’s also from AmericanCatholic.org.


“The question of how many angels could dance on the point of a pin no longer is absurd in molecular physics, with its discovery of how broad that point actually is, and what part invisible electronic ‘messengers’ play in the dance of life” (Lewis Mumford).

  1. “I’m sorry Father, this conflicts with my primary vocation”
    Funny, how the shortest sentences are the hardest ones to say, not because we fear what the other will think but because it means facing the words ourselves. You can do it!


    1. LOL!!

      You know, I had never thought about the last two words….I mean I had, but I Hadn’t.
      As convoluted as that sentence seems, I know you understand it. 😉

      I have to do it.

      OH and Update, I am back on that committee that I had dropped! LOL!!! How’s that for getting suckered in.
      I sort of dropped Parent Council, but not completely, I am still on two Sub-Committees. AND I am taking a course now too.
