Ever feel like life is zooming by at 90 mph?

Let's play a little fill-in-the-blank game today; if you can identify, join in!

I'll start.

Lately, I've been so busy that...

...I wear dresses as often as I can—no-brainer dressing.
...I've been stuck on the same page of the same book, Twilight: New Moon, for three weeks. (Oh, OK, I'm not finding it that fascinating, but still.)
...I forgot the kids' half birthdays. Both of them.
...taking a bathroom break feels like a break.

Your turn! Fill in the blank:

Lately, I've been so busy that...

  1. I have been so busy that..

    I forgot two ortho appts in a row! (I never do that)

    I haven's shaved my legs in a month!(Just kiddin', but it's been a while!)

    I have 22 messages on my answering machine that need to be returned!

    I haven't gotten back with Faith's Early Interventionist since she returned from mat. leave on June 6th!!! Aweful, aren't I!

    Ellen, you crack me up! You always keep my mind working when I read your blog!

  2. Lately I have been so busy that...
    . I just put the carton of milk in the microwave.
    . When the kids go to bed and I realize the 24 1/2 things to do - I get so overwhelmed that I just play Wii instead.
    . I think of "appeal" arguments in the middle of the night.
    . I JUST put my Christmas Decorations away last month.
    . I remembered Gavin's 22 month birthday - at 4:00 in the afternoon!

    But....I'm NEVER too busy to read "To the Max". *smile*

    hoporl I'm so busy that I just typed the "word verification" in my post. Perhaps it should have been "Lately I have been so TIRED that..."

  3. Very cute!! I may steal this idea some time.

  4. I have been so busy that I can't remember anything without putting a sticky on my bathroom mirror! Oh wait, maybe that's pregnancy brain?!?!?!

  5. I think I will fill this in for the rest of you guys.

    I have been so busy that...

    ...I have no time to leave blog comments, Ellen!

  6. I almost forgot to pay in the grocery store today. Then, I almost walked away without my bags!

    Also, Daniel is going to be officially five years old in 7 hours and 15 minutes. Talk about life zooming by!

  7. I have been so busy that

    I annoy myself by saying I am busy because I saw it so much

    I haven't waxed my eyebrows in forever and am beginning to resemble chewbaca!

    that I am very behind on reading blogs.

    That I fall on the couch at night, and I do not move so therefore the dishes do not get done, and neither does the laundry!

  8. I have been so busy that...

    I keep forgetting to put my make-up on on a morning. I'm just hoping no-one knoecks on the door!

  9. ... i poured izzy's pediasure over my sonic ice.
    ... i haven't even checked my email.
    ... haven't been faithful to my bloggy friends at all.

  10. 6th grade is over
    I had an Oreo frappé.
    My hair is long.
    Max and I are 3 years apart.


Thanks for sharing!
