Can anyone organize my life?

"How do you organize your life?" I just can not seem to do it, always have not been able to, but more now than ever. I am needing some major time management help, anyone?
I saw this book on Amazon and it made me laugh. I thought of you 'M' who can not find your camera or phone, maybe you don't have a problem with your keys though.
It literally takes me a 1/2 hour of extra time everywhere I go or things that I try to do because I am searching for things that I need to bring and I can not find them. I almost just give up and stay home half of the time.
This is not the only problem, I just can not manage my time. Any suggestions anyone? ANYONE?

Sometimes your the windshield: sometimes you're the bug

I feel like always the bug, and seriously is being the windshield even that much better? Maybe that is the point of the quote, I don't know. I just liked it because there is not a brighter side regardless if you are the windshield or the bug... maybe that is my 'i hate life, life sucks' attitude really getting attention and seeping through as much as I try and shove it away. Really try and choose which you would rather be the windshield or the bug?

Monster Spray

So this one kills me. I can just be so sad and think of this and it just makes me smile.

The story is we were at our cousin's house one night and there little guy pulled out a spray bottle that I think was used to correct whining at one time, once he was corrected of his whining it was turned into monster spray.

He pulled it out and was showing Hayes and telling him that it is to spray monsters. We left and Hayes could not believe that there was monster spray, how could I be a mom and not have monster spray? He was just like, 'mom we better get us some monster spray, I wonder where you get it?' 'Do we have enough money for it?' So I was like, 'Hayes, there really are no monsters, we do not need monster spray...'

You never tell a kid that there are no monsters! They will not believe you! So he was like, 'Well, can we get some monster spray just in case?' I finally agreed to it that we would get some just in case, but still tried to convince him that there was no need because there are no monsters.

A few days past and we were saying our prayers one night and it was Hayes turn. This is something of how it went:

"Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for this day, Please help that we can get some Monster Spray, .... just in case. "

Okay maybe there is Monsters? Because if you do a search on Google for 'monster spray' you will really get a recipe. I am starting to wonder myself if we need some monster spray.


This spray works equally well on monsters and bad dreams. You can spray it as part of the nightly bedtime ritual, and chant, "Monsters, Monsters, stay away." The lavender scent is calming and everyone knows that monsters and bad dreams hate that smell. This spray will save you from lots of tears and terror at bedtime and in the middle of the night.


1 bottle
6-8 ounces water
3-4 drops lavender oil

Let child pick out a"magical" spray bottle.
2 Fill bottle with water.
3 Add essential oil.
4 Shake well.
5 Spray in corners, under beds, in closets, etc.
6 Child may chant"monsters, monsters, stay away" or any other powerful words.
7 Shake before each use

So this is the number of days I have left if I live to be 65, obviously there is no guarantee. This is an interesting way to picture time....
I attended a photography seminar just recently, of all things this is what plays the most in my mind of what was talked about (I know it has nothing to do with photography, I truly did learn stuff about that too).

Time goes by so fast when you look into the past, but so slow if you look into the present.

Compare 13,505 days to 13,505 dollars. How fast can you spend $13,505 dollars?

That is how I view my days now as money because it seems so much better and it makes everything so small for the days to come. I can spend $13,505 REAL fast....

"When I stand before God at the end of my life I hope I have not one bit of talent left- I hope I can say, "I used everything you gave me."

If I live to be 100, that is 26,280 days left and I already have arrangements to be ran over by a car even though that is still not alot of money... I still am not that patient.

Hayes came to me the other day and asked if I could paint his face black. Apparently he found an arrow and his imagination ran wild. I decided why not pain his face? Didn't know it would turn into something he would beg for everyday. I am a nice mom to let my kid run around in public like this. He can even do it himself now.

You have to have a gun with the arrow.
He posed himself.

Have some gum. Kids can not be the judge of measuring the bubble tap bubble gum or this is the result.
