Has anybody seen.....?

Life has been a little crazy since school started. That might be putting it very mildly. I was asked at the end of the summer to be the Athletic Director at my kids' school. I agreed whole heartedly because I would love for there to be a good program going by the time Raven enters middle school. That is only 2 years away. I mistakenly thought that it would take only a little more time than it did to coach soccer this past spring and our family has to volunteer 40 hours a year anyway so...!
WRONG. We are 3 weeks into the school year and I am averaging 2 hours a day on this VOLUNTEER position! I could do more except that I still have a house to run.

This is what my shriveled brain should look like instead of the raisin it has become.
Between being: Mom, wife, chauffeur, vt district leader, Stake Y.W. sports director, house cleaner, laundry lady, chief chef (although the bread that Raven made yesterday tastes pretty good), dishwasher, homework warden, pipe fixer.... I am finding it hard to find time to sleep. Even though I really want to take a nap everyday with Jaxon and don't. It seems that I have misplaced my brain somewhere because everything that goes into one ear comes right out the other ear. My brain is no longer stopping things. Of course I am not sure that I would change anything even if I could! So if you see an extra brain or two lying around, would you please send them my way?
