Mommy Monday


The other day while out and about with Hunter after a doctor's appointment he told me, "Your day is really boring". Ouch! I never feel bored more like overwhelmed sometimes with so many little tasks that need to happen every day. Meg said it best, "...i feel like i'm swimming through molasses." That's exactly how I feel some days.

A Mommy Monday ~
6:30 - wake up.. fold laundry(turn on TV to see who won Oscars).. wake up kids.. breakfast(read 3 pages of most recent Smithsonian).. iron kid clothes(because they sat in the clean laundry pile too long).. get dressed.. kids to school with 3 minutes to spare.. gym.. visit home of a potential Japanese intern host family.. Powells Book Store to pick up gifts for interns leaving soon(they are short 5 books-also purchased In Defense of Food).. pick up Gray from preschool.. visit Powells on Hawthorne to find more books (they have 2 but can't find them).. home for lunch.. fold more laundry.. check email and bloglines.. Sean calls he forgot his gym shoes.. trip downtown with Gray to drop off shoes.. shower.. more laundry.. pick up Japanese Interns for ESL class.. bank.. car wash.. Sean calls again to say, "I Love You and your a great mom" (I needed that).. straighten house.. pick up kids from Meegans (thanks for the great play date).. straight to Costco for Haruka's eye appointment (and a wholesome family dinner).. home for homework and piano.. crawl into bed with Gray for cuddles and fall asleep.

Not a boring day just a busy day. I'm dedicating the rest of the February to not feeling overwhelmed.
