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.

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?

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?
