All that work, and the to-do list is no smaller.

I am soooo tired. I was ready for bed at about 3 p.m. today. Here was my day.

wake up at 7 a.m.
feed baby
wake kids
feed kids
change baby
take kids to school (8:30 a.m.)
feed, bathe, change baby over and over (except the bath, just one of those)
fold 4 loads of laundry that have been sitting on my couch all week
make and eat lunch
walk around park with baby while simultaneously calling insurance and doc offices to find an orthopaedic specialist that they cover (1 p.m.)
visit hospital to see about picking up x-rays
shop for dinner fixings
park and feed baby outside kids' school
pick up kids (3 p.m.)
help kids with homework
load up kids and go pick up new baby swing
reassemble old swing to prepare to give it away
finish helping kids with homework
make dinner (biscuits and sausage gravy...yum!)
eat fast and take Tiny to church activity (6:30 p.m.)
pick up visiting partner and visit with two ladies from church
come home and feed baby
go to grocery store for dinner fixings for dinner guests tomorrow
come home, feed baby and put him to sleep
plop down on couch with heavy eyelids, weary head, and a desire to not move again (and it's 9:47 p.m.)

I'm tired. And the next couple days will not slow down much. Tomorrow, I have to drop off Mister at school, take Tiny and Little Man to the hospital to pick up the x-rays, and then take Tiny to her orthopaedic appointment...all before 9:30 a.m. Pick up the kids at 3, pop the lasagna in the oven at 4, and have dinner guests at 5. Did I mention that the house is a mess and will need to be cleaned sometime before dinner? At 6, the kids' school Halloween carnival starts and they will need to be in costume. Friday night, trick or treating. Saturday night, H and I get to dine with some of the loveliest friends a girl could ask for and their wonderful husbands/fiancee at a bbq steakhouse. Oh, I'm sooo looking forward to that. Maybe I'll be able to breathe again on Sunday. Here's hoping.

I know that the long list of my day is a bit dull to read, but I think it helps me to see that even though I don't think I accomplished anything, it's evident that I ran my butt off today. I wish all of the above would burn calories like the walk did. Then I'd be in great shape in a matter of days.

Amazing how we think that it's school making us so busy, and then when we're suddenly not in school anymore, things are still INSANE! You are Wonder Woman! I can't wait for tomorrow night's LonDolls dinner!!!
