Knock Knock.. You There?

 Where have I been!?

 My life is flashing before my very eyes. Seriously, I can't believe how fast the work days are going by. My mornings whiz by and before I know it, I'm at work wishing I had eaten that banana when I had the chance. Every day after work, I get home, give Alina supper while I'm making our dinner, bath the girl, put away leftovers, fill the dishwasher and eat. Then, it seems once all of that is taken care of, it's eight and time for Alina to go to bed and for me to begin my two hours of schooling. By ten I am never quite finished and it is always after ten before I actually settle down with Rob to watch a show. Once I feel like a human, I head for bed and sigh with stress and worry that I have to do it all over again in the morning. (Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I'm getting up early everyday to study a little bit and every other day to run on the treadmill.)

 I'm totally burning out but this is how it is right now. Besides, at least I'm not doing this entirely by myself. How do single mothers do it?! I mean, really.

 Instead of a fun, original post, I have only pictures to show off what we've been up to lately. This is all I have time to offer. Once I finish posting this, I have to catch up on my journal.. I'm a few days behind and then it's a movie or a show.. Although I should probably go to bed because when I was reading over this week's material for one of my courses I could have sworn I just blinked but in actuality I just started to fall asleep sitting up.

 When I'm not spending time with the family or at work, this will be my view:


 And if it wasn't bad enough.. my new blog design made its debut and I didn't even realize. So I just wrote an entire post and failed to mention the elephant in the room... My blog has had a make over and I'm pretty happy with it. I'll post more about the details on that soon!! (Just add it to my list of things I have to do!!!)

I was just thinking the other day that I don't know how single moms do it... I can't imagine... So admirable! I love the picture of Alina kissing the mirror! ;) too cute!

Isn't it crazy how life can just consume us without even realizing it?! Like, I can't believe it's already October 6th! Where, oh where, has time gone?? But your little Alina is as precious as ever, and I'm so glad you're balancing work and school and home life! Keep up the great work! Oh, and your new blog design looks AMAZING! Love, love, love it!

Love the new blog design, especially the little quill effect! Great pictures, Alina is getting so big now. I have no idea where this year has sped off too, it's OCTOBER already! Sheesh!! Don't forget to take a breather from everything before you really burn out. Good luck with the studying, Haley!

So I feel exactly that way but I lack a child and education...so perhaps I am just an old lady and need to head to bed by 9 which screws up any 'free time' I could possible use to blog. Adult problems? Love the blog design its so cute and there is feathers. I love feathers. I know its a quill, but I am going with feathers.

Oh Haley, your blog design looks amazing. Sophisticated and so your style. Don't worry about life, sometimes it's too fast that you even forget to breath (well that's exaggerating) but once everything is settled, it would be more than well.

Finally!Your blog got a facelift and I LOVE IT! Sometimes, life is like that. I can't believe 2014 is near its end. Like I haven't got used to write 2014 in dates section, always mix up 2013 with it haha. Good luck with your job and studies and being a fun and amazing mom!!
