I am giving myself an award...a really big one

This was a huge day for a girl who can go comatose, occasionally, when faced with too much to do:

  • 8:45am -Take kids to school, remember "Tacky Day" for Nathan, drop off cleaned toys (who just volunteered to start a "toy washing program for her son's preschool...oh yes, that was me)
  • 9:00am - 10am -Come home, quickly clean house, including guinea pig cages (yes, cages...a friend came to school all allergic and so I volunteered to take her guinea pig until she found a new home for it. So I was cleaning a cage of a guinea pig that wasn't even mine...)
  • 10am - Drop off deposit for Nathan's new school next year
  • 10:10am - Return library books
  • 10:15am - 10:55am - Drive to the mall, buy gift certificate for Emma's teacher who is going on maternity leave
  • 10: 55am - 11:25am - Rush to Emma's classroom, throw "you are going to be leaving for maternity leave" party for her teacher, complete with scrapbook, coordinated by some crazy woman (me), with baby and big kid pictures, notes from all the kids, pieces of advice for parents, etc. (Yes, I worked on that for a week straight)
  • 11:25am - Walk Emma to her friends' Dad's car...she's off to a playdate
  • 11:40am - 11:55am - Pick up Nathan from school, along with a whole bucket of new toys to clean
  • 12:05pm - Pick up Katie from the bus stop (half day)
  • 12:10pm - Feed kids
  • 12: 45pm - Answer phone, it's Katie's friend. Does Katie want to come for a playdate? Well, how about you come here?
  • 1pm - Put on clothes to walk and get Katie's friend
  • 1pm - 3pm - Supervise playdate, while cleaning toys for preschool and monitoring dumb dog
  • 3pm - Into the car, drop of Katie's playdate
  • 3:10pm - Drop off Katie at Julie's house for "movie Fridays"
  • 3:20pm - 4:30pm - Drive to Pick up Emma, socialize with her friend's lovely mother
  • 4:35 - 5:30pm - Drive home, home for 4o minutes
  • 5: 35pm - 8:05pm - Take Nathan to new friend's movie watching party
  • 8:05pm - 8:35pm - Leave, drive to pick up Katie
  • 8: 54pm - Write this
  • 9pm - Put kids to bed
I can't even believe the amount of activity and socializing for this basically antisocial girl. I must really, really, really, really, really love my kids.

p.s. - I think this tetanus shot hurts more than my bilateral mastectomy. Just kidding...but that gives me an idea...don't I have some vicodin around here? ha ha
