I know, I just dated myself again. Too bad. It fits my needs right now.
I have been absent lately due to being very overwhelmed with the return to school. I think going back to school/work after being gone for the weekend, trying to get everyone back into a routine, and expecting company tomorrow has put me over the edge. I have been in bed at 8:30 the past two nights but even then, I don’t sleep well, can cope for the day, but after dinner, I’m gone.
Here is a glimpse into today:
5:30am wake up
6:15am get girls up
6:40am leave for school
7:00am drop off Abby at the daycare
7:15am arrive at school
7:30am kids start arriving in class
7:30-2:30 spend all day with 19 kindergarteners with no special today (PE, etc)
2:30pm kids go home
3:30pm I leave school
3:45pm arrive in Kroger parking lot; Katie calls; she needs to go to the store too and needs a gas card
3:46pm leave Kroger parking lot
3:50pm arrive at the daycare
3:55pm buy new hairbows on display at daycare (cute!!)
4:00pm get the girls
4:15pm arrive home
4:20pm leave for Wal-Mart with Katie; girls stay home with Alex (thank heavens)
5:25pm leave Wal-Mart after buying most of what we need
5:40pm arrive home (had to get gas too)
5:55pm finished unloading and putting away
5:55pm leave for Kroger for missing items
6:15pm home and unload
6:20pm start dinner
6:25pm start laundry
6:50pm eat dinner
7:25pm make cookies
7:40pm make lunches
And the night isn't over yet.........
And this doesn’t count the basics that go on everyday. You guys know all about that, I’m sure. And to top it all off, I think I am getting a cold.
I will say that when Dave arrived home at 6:20, he put the girls in the bathtub before we ate dinner, did storytime, and picked out clothes for them before they got in bed at 8:00. Otherwise, I’d be even more crazy.
My parents arrive tomorrow for the weekend, Dave’s mom flies in for the day on Saturday on her way to Nicaragua for a mission trip, Dave has Army drill all weekend, and we have friends joining us for dinner on Saturday. I’m sure it will be a terrific but tiring weekend.
Gee, I think I’ll go to bed now. Y’all excuse me if I start to snore.
I know I am not the only one in the same boat. Please share your woes with me to make me feel better.
