my CRAZY schedule.

so I realized today that NONE of my days are the same. NONE. while a lot of things repeat, that doesn’t mean that all of the things on any given day repeat again another day.

pretty much every day starts the same.

    1. my alarm goes off at 5:45
    2. I shower, get dressed, drink coffee, pack lunches
    3. I make sure shane is up by 6:15
    4. start rallying the littles by 6:30
    5. make sure everyone is dressed, fed, teeth brushed, has SHOES on, and ready to leave by 7:20 (this is when we AIM to leave. if we actually leave then, it’s a miracle.)
    6. we drop shane off at about 7:50
    7. drive to layla’s school
    8. sit in the car and read until 8:45  or so, when she can be dropped off.

AND THAT’S JUST THE MORNING!

  • monday and wednesday afternoon:
    1. micah and I leave at 3:10 to pick up layla from school at 3:35
    2. stop at store, library, etc. to kill time
    3. pick up shane from cross country practice at 4:15
    4. we all go home
  • tuesday and thursday afternoon
    1. micah and I leave at 3:55 to pick up shane from cross country practice at 4:15
    2. go home (layla goes home after school with a soccer teammate with whom she goes to practice. dave brings her home with him after practice ends at 6:30.)
  • friday afternoon:
    1. micah and I leave at 2:05 to pick up shane from school at 2:25
    2. drive to store, library, park, etc. to kill time
    3. pick up layla from school at 3:35
    4. we all go home

of course, these are ‘normal’ days. next week starts cross country meets, and I think there’s one a week through the end of the season…

and then I volunteered to help out in layla’s classroom. somehow I will figure out where that fits in. I think.

oh, and I volunteered to help with popcorn fridays.

ugh!

I imagine, once november comes and soccer and cross country are over, every day will look like fridays… unless of course, shane decides to play basketball or join a club or something like that.

in the spring, when track starts, it will probably look something like it does now, except without the soccer stuff for layla on tuesdays and thursdays. but who knows. micah will probably want to play t-ball and she might want to play softball, or gymnastics, or ballet, or who knows what…

so, old blue and I are becoming good friends. (that’s what I’ve decided to name my beat-up minivan – anything you spend that much time with deserves a name.) the driver’s seat and my backside are slowly fusing together… one day, I may try to get out of the car, and find myself unable to…

I may have to call for help.

and of course, these are just the weekdays.

how, exactly, is it that I became THAT mom?
