Bear with me.

I’m pondering some big questions—like, how do I work on multiple projects that demand twice as many childcare hours than I currently enjoy, continue my blog, raise my son, remain married to my husband, and have enough time to make myself a sandwich? So far the answer seems to be “live concurrently in multiple dimensions.” I’m hoping a better one will come to me soon.

I'll make you a sandwich.

I'll marry your husband.
September 25, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterSarah
So that means I get your son. Seeing as the sandwich and the husband are already spoken for. OK, ship him parcel post... I'm psyched.

If you manage to figure out that whole "live concurrently in multiple dimensions" thing, please be sure to pass along some instructions.

If it helps, I'd be happy to take some of those blog readers off your hands.

From the looks like you're doing a pretty fine job!

Oooh, no one claimed the multiple, time-demanding projects!

Can I have those?

Stop sleeping or Stop cleaning.

Since sleeping isn't optional...

I hope you figure it out. We miss you.

When you figure it out, let me know.

Anyone want to borrow a 3 year old until my newborn is old enough to go 20 minutes without being glued to me?

I've run out of hands and I'm hungry and dirty.

Do what I did - cloning. A copy of yourself is always the way to go.

I feel your pain. Just did a "I need more 'me' time" on my blog. Some have always said that you're children come first. I don't know if that's true or not, because you don't do your kids much good when you're locked up in the looney bin.

Shit. This pretty much sums up my life. And I don't even LIKE sandwiches.

So I guess this would be a bad time to tell you how miserable I am without frequent posts from you.

When it does, hurry up and patent it and then sell licenses and make yourself rich.

The cost of this advice is, of course, that you share it with me for free. :)

You eat AND sleep? hehehe!!

Seriously, wish I could help you out with that time continuim thingie...I sure could use one of those myself!

September 25, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterEvil Genious
See, if you just figure that out, then you could market it and sell it, then you'll have plenty of money for nannies, personal chefs, house cleaners, butlers, and personal assistants - and even prostitutes for your husband!

Oh wait - you'll probably want to take care of that last one yourself, eh?

Good luck getting that sandwich!

Implants. No, not those...I mean appendages. 2 more arms and 2 more legst and you can run around twice as fast and be twice as productive.

You're welcome.

What's that old quote? "No one on their death bed ever said they wished they'd spent more time at work" (?? --Something like that, anyway..)

FWIW, there's where I stand....

Mary, mom to many

I make a yummy grilled cheese. Come on over. I'm also a good babysitter.
September 25, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterEm
Mmmmm, sandwich.
September 25, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterSusan
Or just post these short little entries and let your commenters finish it up for you. I giggled my way through the comments -- special kudos to elise for taking on the demanding projects.
September 25, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterJen
Ah. See, today I attempted to tackle some of my own demanding projects. Now I have more demanding projects, cuz the girls used their new scissors to cut little holes in their as yet unworn fall clothing. Alice, I am right there with you. Sorry I can't give advice, but you probably wouldn't be safe following it, anyway.
September 25, 2006 | Unregistered Commenterwendy
I'm more of a soup gal, myself, so you can have my sandwich.
September 25, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterVelma
You can relax on the blog thing. I miss you, but I can wait.
