[UPDATE, Week Eight Total Results= Brandon: 22.8 Me: 13. 4]
Golly geeze, I'm busy! You wouldn't think the start of school would create such chaos, now would you? Well, you would be, once again, very, very wrong. (Not implying that my readers are wrong about anything. Just in reading my mind, I guess?).
Here is a synopsis of a busy day in my crazy world (Wednesdays work well. Let's do today):
5:15AM --Alarm goes off.
5:30AM --Meet with running buddy. Walk a mile; run two.
6:20AM --Arrive back home; shower, wake up kids, get dressed, breakfast, make lunch, say prayers, brush teeth, hair, crazy mess, some fighting, finding shoes, etc.
7:30AM --Brandon takes #1 to school. Remember to eat my own breakfast. Feed #4 cereal.
8:20AM --Take kids to drop off #2 at preschool.
8:35AM --Drop off #3 and #4 (with #3's tricycle) off with my running buddy and some of her kids at the nearby park while I attend #2's "mom social".
9:30AM --Hang out at park for a little while; go home, nurse baby (OUCH! Stop biting me!), finish reading Twilight (Yes, Denae, it is wonderful! Sorry, guys, but I likey!).
10:50AM --Go pick up #2 from preschool; go home, feed the kids lunch. Email, blog, dishes, etc.
12:30PM --Realize that #3 and #4 are asleep and #1 has an early day. Grrr! Call a friend --she picks up #1 for me. Thank you, thank you!
1:30PM --#1 returns home. Spend the next hour or so helping with homework, cleaning the house, and writing this post.
The rest of the day will go as follows (if it goes according to plan):
3PM--5:30PM --Teach 5 piano lessons.
6PM --Make and serve dinner; bathe the kids.
7:20PM--Scriptures, prayers, lights out!
8PM --Ice cream, novel, maybe some TV, me. :)
10:30PM --Brandon comes home (he has a class in SF on Wednesday nights). Fall asleep blissfully in his arms. Okay, okay. Usually, I fall asleep in a drool-infested stupor. But whatever.
I forget that the crazy busy scheduling is what my soul thrives on. I honestly have thought about the "sweet" days of summer without a schedule, and had to stop myself for believing that somehow I was "happier when". This new schedule will take time, but I'm believing that I'll get used to it soon enough.
Oh, and to all my faithful readers and fellow bloggers, I promise to catch up on all of your posts soon! I just don't seem to have the time, as my post above indicates. But oh, how I miss you...
