Well...I read this last night and was about to reply "I would write a reply if I had more time." But I didn't even have enough time to write that. So now that it is the next day, and my son (your grandson) is napping, I have exactly 2 hours free. Not free really, but usable. In that 2 hours, I have to unload the dishwasher, load the dishwasher, take a shower, blow dry my hair, change the laundry, pay bills, send out emails to fulfill my responsibilities as managing director of my acapella group, work on my grad school applications, and eat lunch. If I can find 5 extra minutes during that time, I will work on the advent calendar I am making for my son (I'm running out of time because the 1st of December is tomorrow) and respond to my mother's blog post. I always thought stay-at-home moms were lucky because they had all the time in the world. But I can't tell you how often I find myself wishing I had a job to go to just so I could get something done. My peers with office jobs seem to have much more down time than I do.
