so little time


for all the bloggers out there who have full time jobs, families, and social lives... i don't know how you find time to keep up with regular blogging! :) i obviously am going to need to figure out some time management so a little blue and my blog friends get some of my attention! i have been one busy bee though...

this past week was a whirlwind ~ i had an amazing last day with the mister before i started work again, (i'll do a separate post on it because it deserves extra attention!) and my first three days of work were even better than expected.

the company i work for is down in orange county, so lucky me, i discovered the famous "orange crush" during my drives. but even with the occasional parking lot on the freeway traffic... i didn't seem to mind the time to myself. i was able to have quite a few catch up phone calls with friends and family so i feel like i made good use of my commutes.


yesterday, i went to the newsroom cafe on robertson for lunch with one of my friends from college. we worked together for awhile after school, but now that we don't see each other regularly it's nice when we get the occasional meet up. you always know you have a good friend if you don't see each other for awhile, and when you do you just pick up where you left off. it's like the time away didn't happen :).


today is going to be an exciting sunday full of chores. gag. the mister and i just cleaned out the inside of our cars, we are going to goodwill to do a giant donation (i filled four or five garbage bags with linens and clothes), we are going to target... and maybe home depot. i don't know, i don't know we'll have enough time :) *we put on old school probably 3 times last week for me to fall asleep to it. i need to stop*

well, hopefully i will have a few posts this week... and i hope even more that i can catch up on all my favorite blogs tonight! 

hope you're having a great sunday!

Glad you had a good weekend with your hubby (: It's hard to keep up with blogging, especially being in school full time, but I think of it as my "break" from homework or what I do in my spare time. I just love it. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday, Jenna!

so glad to hear you like the job even if you do have to sit in awful OC traffic! (i grew up in Orange County so I know just what you mean!)

I always think the same thing... I'm always running from one thing to another and never have enough time to spend time that I want on other peoples blogs. I'm glad I stopped by yours today- I've missed "seeing" you!

Things to Do said...

I often think of all the time I'd gain from not blogging that I could put to other goals, but then I'd probably just lay being lazy around instead. ;) Have a great week!

trust me, keeping up with blogging is definitely a challenge with a full time job! I totally understand you needing some time off to catch up with your new job and old friends! Life first, then blogging:)

Congrats on starting the new job. Glad things are going well for you. You were missed. Enjoy the rest of your week.

It certainly isn't easy to keep up, but it sounds like you've been filling your time with wonderful adventures! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Glad your weekend was good! I blog ahead of time. I take pictures all week and upload them to my computer. Then on the weekend I write my posts for the week and schedule them to post at 7am everyday. That way I don't have to worry about it everyday. It works for me with 2 small kids, but you'll find what works for you! ps, you won my giveaway! I'm going to need your address lady!

i know just what you mean about how to find time for blogging. it's so easy to lose myself in the day to blogland. it's so fun, and i love where i'm taking my blog. just too bad i have to have a paying job on top of it. alas! :) if you discover any great tips on time management i would love to hear them.
