I just, somehow, managed to get through a giant stack of press kits and desktop full of products for my blog. My son is playing Rockband2 right next to me totally drowning out my nice relaxing Itunes but for some crazy reason I actually think the yelling from Rebel Girl and Nine In The Afternoon has kept me going!

We have three children, ages 12, 5, and 2, so our home is always noisey. I usually get up extremely early so I can try to blog and read some on my list. I also work part time so my time is limited but I try to get it done in the morning because usually once they are all alseep I'm not too far behind.

I blog at my kitchen table while my 4 kids pester and nag, I'm changing poop diapers, making a sandwich, figuring out what to do for dinner, manage the Vesuvius pile of laundry, and craving a beer. Quiet ain't happen here.
Hi, I work full time during the day as a Caseworker so I totally feel your pain! I have a WONDERFUL husband who will often keep the kids occupied to so I can check things out online and do my blog posts. Sometimes, I have to put it off until the kids go to bed which is usually around 8 pm.
