Such a great example of WHY you should pay attention to your life.
Because my children will soon look like this,
if I don't start prioritizing bath time, teeth-brushing and general grooming on a regular basis.
I think I am learning my limits.
Blah, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha (obnoxious laugh).
Did you just hear me say that I *claim* to know my breaking point? Yeah, that's bull-oney.
One bible study.
Two playdates, at two separate locations.
One field trip
(I did not chaperone, but just finding the field trip shirt was a commitment)
One birthday party.
Gathering/organizing in order to help "decorate" G's school for it's open house tomorrow.
One swim practice.
One loaf of banana bread.
Thirty minutes of temptation in which I almost made pumpkin cookies, but abstained.
One batch of the thinnest chocolate chip cookies ever made. Plus a few, dirty cuss words when they wouldn't separate from their baking sheet.
Five completely rotted, NASTY pumpkins on my front doorstep. And a dead bird, complete with visible intestines, on my driveway. Lovely.
Big J was the "Star of the Week" in his class...which meant our robo hamsters attended kindergarten as guests. This probably goes without saying, but having to get 4 children PLUS two hamsters ready for school by 8:20 a.m. has DISASTER written all over it. Plus, I thought one of them kicked the bucket this afternoon, when I found it belly up in it's cage. Just snoozing.
It was SOOOO cute, which makes me believe that when these things actually die, it will be adorable.
A McDonald's grilled chicken snack wrap is NOT an adequate source of calories to fuel this kind of manic activity.
Tomorrow: A 4-5 mile run at 6 a.m., followed by 9 holes of golf (walking). Plus, the never-ending string of the most beautiful weather I have ever experienced in November,
which guarantees the kids and I will be heading outside for. more. activities.
I know that sounds luxurious, but it is shaping up to have me in bed by 3:30 p.m.
It's 8:30 p.m., and G has not been home for more than 15 minutes today, and HALLELUJAH that she doesn't have any homework besides memorizing a bible verse (that we have yet to glance at) and reading for 15 minutes. Really, we'll just say she read and tack it on later this weekend,
amidst the 467 activities I have yet to think about.
Because there is zero time for learning today.
There isn't even time for hygiene, as her last shower was on Sunday.
Plus, she's been in a pool twice this week, which means that if I want to cut her hair? All I need to do is bend it, and it will snap right off.
Life is just too damn busy for all that learning and general cleanliness crap.
(Officially my new life motto)
