I’m so busy, I’m basically going non-stop this week.  (Warning:  complaining will now commence.)  Keep in mind that I now have to get up at 5:30 to drive Bri to seminary (a religious education class) every morning.  She loves it but I can’t wait until she can drive herself.

Monday:  Wake Bri up at 5:30am because she overslept.  Drive her to Ashland wait.  Drive three kids to high school and drop them off.  Return home at 7:30.  Get Will on the bus at 7:50.  Workout, go to grocery story, Lizzy stays home because of a “stomach ache,” Pick up Bri from swimming, take her to piano, take Will to MyGym class, pick up Bri from piano.  After school hours absent from home:  5-7:30. 

Tuesday:  Up at 5:30 back home at 7:30.  Marcy makes me workout, library, get Will of the bus, pick up Jake from school take him to EmPower, get home 2 hours after I left, go back to Jake’s school for Back to School night.  After school hours absent from home: 3:15-8:00 minus a half an hour.

Wednesday:  Leave at 5:40 to drop Bri off.  Drop Jake off at school at 6:30 for river rafting.  I have to wake up Will and take him with me because my husband is in North Carolina.  Teach classes at Y, finish at 12:15.  Skip parent group meeting from 1-2:30 at Will’s school because I need to sit down.  Will’s therapy is from 3:15-5:15.  Pick up Bri from swim practice at 5:15.  Will’s piano lesson.  Pick up Jake at 7:00 from school and drive him and Bri to a roller skating party.  A friend took Lizzy to her 7:00 activity.

Thursday is my light day.  Marcy made me workout with her then I came home and wasted time online.  Will has therapy.  I have to pick up Bri from swimming and I’m looking forward to a back to school night at the high school tonight.  Then if I have time I’ll go walking with Linda.

Marcy told me to downsize but I’m conflicted . . . I mean which kid should I list and should I go with Craig’s List or Freecycle?

I’m definitely keeping Jake because when I got home from dropping off Bri on Monday and Tuesday he had given Will a shower, gotten him dressed, fed him breakfast and packed his lunch!

That is how it is, I am sorry to tell you, Marjorie. Once I left home at 6:30 in the morning, commuted to work in Rigby. Got home at 4:30 and chauffered kids until 10:00 at night (never got out of the car). Fixed food. Ate. Then slept on top of my bed with my clothes on.

I was surprised when the alarm went off at 5:30 and I was still laying in the same spot, on top of the bed, with my clothes on. I considered saving time by not changing and just going back to work in the same clothes. They weren't even wrinkled.
Love to you and yours,
Marie G.

I'm exhausted just reading this. Btw, I think you should go with e-bay.

Thanks for the advice. Maybe one kid is just as much work as four. It's going to get better on October 1st. Then my friend's son Alex can drive Bri in the morning. Happiness!! Jazz Hands!
