Workout – 8 easy miles on the schedule
Tuesdays are generally a busy day with kids, school, dance, living the high life. very glamorous. Here’s a glimpse into this fancy shmancy world of mine. minus the coffee. there is no coffee in the container this morning. not a good sign.
Wakeup bright and early – 4:30am. Try to get the little crazy back to bed and than give up on life around 5am.
Change a diaper
5:15-5:30am – Tweedle dee and Tweedle dum join the crew. everyone is alive and well. #1 doing her homework for today. no time like the present to teach procrastination. I’m very good at it.
Hubs shoots out to the gym. It’s his day. I have to figure the run in at some point throughout the day or tonight.
Change a poopy diaper.
unload dishes. throw in some laundry. hug a baby. kiss a child.
Davey gets home with COFFEE. the day has been saved.
I get to make everyone breakfast – a la carte. Lately I like to just have a peanut butter bagel. everyone else usually gets eggs and cereal of some sort. along with ovaltine milk. yummy vitaminy chocolatey goodness.
and I put together some protein shakes for D-man and I for later.
Get the kids dressed. Plop them in front of the TV for half an hour so I can breathe real quick. Pack the bookbag and dance bag for school.
See a terrible message on the news that there is a 90 min delay due to 2 inches of snow = no a.m. kindergarten.
shoot me now. I love extra time with my kids.
#1 would be off to get educated by 8:25. if it didn’t snow.
Stick the kids in the car and go to
MY FAVORITE PLACE IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD the last place I want to be but spend entirely too much time there – the grocery store. we didn’t make it to the store yesterday, and Target didn’t carry lentils (the nerve), we run to the store. not literally. that’s a little crazy.
Get the goods and head back home, unless I have to run any other errands. I usually max out at 2 or 3 stops. it’s a pain getting the kids in and out of the car. and it’s cold. we had snow last night. did I mention that. thank goodness I got my deal of the year on snowboots for the kiddos!
Gammy to the rescue! I get to go to the gym before Anna goes to school this afternoon. I’m sure it was tough, but they managed to get all the snow cleaned up in time for the afternoon kids. there is a God.
I should probably feed them lunch. 12:45 – bring the preschooler to school.
Big girl goes to dance for 1:30-2. Little guy usually falls asleep on the way and that 20 minutes constitutes a wonderfully delightful nap. I would prefer 3 hours. but again, we don’t live in a perfect world. I’ve accepted that.
The whole crew is home by 3:30ish, and the dinnertime craziness begins. little more cleaning, laundry and I’ve got bedtime dreams. The official bedtime countdown begins by 4pm. it’s official.
All in a day. repeat tomorrow. new day. new fun.
Is there snow yet where you live?
Do you plan your dinner meals out in advance for the week?
How many times a week are you at the grocery store?
