a working mama.
5:05--press snooze. x3...or more.
5:35-6:30--mad dash to get everybody ready, including myself.
6:30-7:30--hour commute. Awesome.
7:40-2:30--work. Today included midterm exams, making sure that every student got on the bus, file review, CAPT Checklist training, checking on student physicals, connecting with a couple of parents, correcting said exams, etc, etc, etc...How did my TO DO list get longer?!? As soon as I cross off something I have to add 2 more things.
2:30-3:30--hour commute with 1 coffee, with a pit stop at the credit union
3:30-4:15--prepare dinner, play with the two smallest kiddos, and wait for #2 to get off of the bus. Highlight of the afternoon: a special package came all the way from Australia--finally--and it included a Thomas DS cover. Does somebody look THRILLED or what?
4:15-5:30--carpool time with 6 kids. There were 3 cool chicks in the back yelling out PADIDDLE, baby girl rocking out to some Van Halen and Rihanna, and Christian asking for the Call Me Maybe song. Good times.
5:30-6:15--dinner, homework and making 3 kid lunches for tomorrow, all with a 1 year attached to my hip. Go me--I'm at the point that I can cook and hold Ellie at the same time, not even in her Beco.
6:15-8--cardio kickboxing @ the gym and stopping at the gas station, since I probably won't want to stop for gas in the morning with the anticipated snowy mix.
8:15--kisses for the munchkins, cleaning up, getting clothes out for 4 kids for the morning, and a little computer time.
I'm beat--and due to my kickboxing class I probably won't be able to sleep. Go figure. Crossing my fingers for a snow day for tomorrow, but a delay would be just fine so that I can get to work safely.
Days like this make me completely appreciate my Saturday and Sundays at home, and all of the days off that I have as a teacher so that I can hang out with the little ones. Three days left until a long weekend, but who's counting?
