Deep breath. *exhale*
It’s one of those insane days. Hubby’s at a local conference, which keeps him away. For the first time, I’m having to drop off both daughters at different schools, about a half hour away from each other. And work. And activities. And … everything else.

one-third. It's more of the
Here’s a look at my day:
7 a.m. Up and start nagging to get the other two awake. Feed animals, and make lunches.
8:15 a.m. Drop oldest daughter off at middle school. She doesn’t start until 9 a.m., but on a tight schedule, we need to be early.
8:45 a.m. Drop youngest at elementary school. (Late since she starts at 8:30)
** Target interlude since we have two birthday parties on Saturday, and honestly I need to pick up Halloween candy and two pumpkins.
10 a.m. – Noon Limited work at day-job, but manage to edit a 20-page report.
1 – 2:30 p.m. Teach college class. Today, was a “free” day but I was supposed to be available for consultation. Notice that “was.” For the first time, after driving for 35 minutes, I was unable to find a parking spot. Seriously, they’ve been doing construction and who-knows-what, and I gave up and sent the class a note. Most had already submitted work via email.
** Stop at pet store for bunny food, and I get 30 minutes “extra” at home to eat and play on Facebook.
3:40 p.m. Pick up oldest from school.
** A tiny bit of breathing space at home to do dishes, etc. before …
5:30 p.m. Pick up youngest from gymnastics
6:30 p.m. Drop off youngest for piano lessons
** Are you hanging in there yet? Tired?
7 p.m. Piano done, and I swear we’re getting Thai tonight! Then it’s homework, and hopefully pumpkins and … some quality time?
Somehow, I need to squeeze in: Posting in three online classes, finishing a novella before NaNo (it’s so close), and writing some blurbs, promotional materials.
On that note, it’s almost time to get out the door.
