This week’s daily menu… a whole lot of insanity topped off with large helping of chaos for dessert. On the agenda the girls have daily musical rehearsals, middle school orientation, a culture fair presentation, Star of The Week poster w/pictures, etc., wardrobe shopping for upcoming musical, parent meeting for upcoming musical, half days for conferences and the things mom can’t remember. Next week will be even more insane. All three girls have field trips, the oldest has musical practices until 8:00 pm (parents will need to serve dinner to kids there), there’s a math carnival and the afore-mentioned musical performances begin… all crammed into four fun-filled days. On one of those nights we’re supposed to meet with an insurance agent and there are some other grown up engagements as well, but I can’t remember what they are because I didn’t write them down thinking that I’d have no problem with forgetting about them because they were important. My work hours have changed too.
In addition to this, the house is a bloody disaster. A typical morning routine consists of rooting through the pile of clean, but unfolded, laundry in the living room in search of daily attire. Cold cereal has become a necessary staple. Regular coffee no longer provides the revitalizing qualities needed to successfully navigate the morning without forgetting important details.
All in all, we’re good though. No major illnesses, loss of employment, natural disasters, famine, etc. The girls remain intact and accounted for. Obviously no knitting to share. I need to start looking for a summer job because school ends on June 11. The goal is evening employment or at-home work because we won’t put the girls in day care. Michelle had some really great ideas which I intend on pursuing once time allows. Hope all is well with everyone.
