And People Wonder How …

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.

Stress Relief -- and I only ate
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.

Send some energy!
