This Week's Juggling Act 4-28-10: Tuesday

Who says I don't work?

7:00 - 8:00 am  Supervised the feeding and dressing of Numbers 1-4, sent Number 1 & 2 to elementary school on bus, ran a load of laundry, unloaded the dishwasher, packed 2 lunches, determined if Number 4 was well enough to go to school (YES!), showered and appropriately dressed myself for a day full of miscelanny.

9:15 - 9:30 am  Wrangled Number 3 & 4 into shoes and the car, answered 421 questions, then dropped off at preschool

9:35 - 10:30 am  Attended very important mental health "meeting" with some really fabulous friends at my very favorite coffee shop

10:45 - 11:00 am  Attended very important actual meeting about "Motherhood Ain't for Sissies" t-shirts.  Did you order yours yet?!?

11:15 - 12:15 pm  Enjoyed an uninterrupted hour alone for lunch, reading and email checking

12:30 - 2:00 pm  Volunteered for Career Day activities at the elementary school.  Well, I did work AT an architecture firm for 9 years.  Close enough, right?

2:01 - 2:55 pm  Attended a very important meeting at elementary school (I do a helluva grown-up impersonation.)

3:00 pm  Preschool pickup, toddler wrangling, nose wiping, etc.

3:20 - 4:00 pm  Made brownies for upcoming teachers' luncheon at elementary school

4:15 pm  Welcomed home Number 1 and 2 from school, asked all the pertinent questions, looked at all the respective papers

5:00 pm  Fed the whole crew.  We all know how dinner works around here!

6:00 pm  Wished babysitter "Good luck"

6:30 pm  Attended very important meeting with St. Joel at the middle school and tried really hard to act like it was perfectly logical that Number 1 is going to middle school next year

8:30 - 10:00 pm  Got debriefing from the babysitter, prodded Number 1 to finish homework, put off Number 2's homework 'til AM, sent Numbers 1-4 to bed, loaded and started the dishwasher, started a load of laundry, enjoyed previously rescheduled 5PM cocktail, finished writing this post, went to bed and caught up on a little trashy TV.

What are you juggling?

Oh man, I know what you're talking about. Often I feel like the ringmaster at the center of a completely insane three ring circus. But you know what part of your post had me laughing the hardest? This, "answered 421 questions, then dropped off at preschool."

That - that right there - is my life right now! ;)
