  • 7:45am - register Alex for high school.  Wow.  High school.  Sports make music seem cheap.  Oh wait...I have one in music AND one in sports.  Matthew's books yesterday were a little over $600.00.  Gasp.
  • 9:00am - Met with a woman who is making new 'curtains' for my family room and is also ordering all the new blinds for me.  In the meantime, we have nothing covering our windows, which is actually how I like it, so if you want to see me in my jammies, just walk on by.  Oh wait, I am usually outside talking with one neighbor or another in my jammies.  Scary.
  • 10:30am - Brian's friends arrive to play, which they do for 15 minutes before I have to load them all up in the car.
  • 10:45am - pick up Alex on the side of the road, for reals, and do my Meals on Wheels run with 4 kids.  Matthew is, at the same time, playing for the opening service at school and I am missing it.  (she says sadly.)
  • 12:15pm - finish Meals on Wheels (boy oh boy, do those old ladies love my middle son or what?) and drive my carload thru the drive-thru at In N Out.  Praise God for gift certificates.
  • 12:30pm - home to a group of teens laying on our front lawn.  In they come to play video games; out the little boys go to climb the trash cans.  Yes, that is the newest activity, but is the end of summer and he is a 3rd child.  Climb away, son.
  • 2:45pm - big boys leave for the pool and Brian's friends go home.  Brian is still outside with neighborhood kids and I am blogging while waiting for his soccer clothes to dry.  And no, I shouldn't be unloading the dishwasher or sweeping the floor.  Nope.
  • Soccer is from 4 - 5:30pm.  I'll drop Brian, run to the store and try and come up with something creative for supper.  Any ideas?  Alex has training from 6:30pm - 7:30pm, so now I am thinking of skipping the store and just making TJ's orange chicken.  Perfect...thanks for helping.
  • Once home, maybe, just maybe, that guy that I share a life with will be home at a decent hour.  1st round of crushing lives was yesterday (when the call back list was posted) and the 2nd is tomorrow...after call backs and that list is posted.  Makes him stressed.  
Ohhhh...just got a phone call that training is cancelled.  Life is good.  Champagne is chilling.

  1. Books? I keep getting calls / texts about nursing supplies my daughter needs. There probably was a list of all these things but knowing Elizabeth she was never aware that it existed.
