Someone asked me what I do all day long...I am a stay-at-home mom you know. My life is a cake walk apparently. It stung. It cut, I have to admit. But, I decided to look at what I do all day long, to take note of it. So here is my day...just today until 6:00 p.m.
Text a discouraged friend.
Stumble to get coffee.
Make sure the boys are ready for the day which requires multiple attempts.
Set them up for school.
Teach them how to read, write, math, science, social studies, art, etc. etc.
Finally get myself ready for the day, but the legs will have to wait for another day.
Say for the millionth time...and I am not exaggerating...Don't bounce the ball in the house!
Finn comes to visit while daddy goes to school and mommy goes to work.
Run to the bookstore across town to get Amanda her book for Honors English that no one in town seemed to carry except a small used book store...clear across town.
Run to the grocery store to get spaghetti sauce for dinner.
Run to my friends house to drop off some things I borrowed a month ago.
Run the book to Amanda.
Run home to finish up school with the boys.
Make a lasagna for dinner.
Run Amanda her soccer shirt she forgot...yes, I am aware I probably shouldn't have done that if I am teaching her responsibility.
Run to Evan's soccer practice.
Run home to get Lindsey.
Run to Amanda's soccer game while dropping Ian off at football practice which requires getting tons of gear found and ready.
Get home to throw dinner in the oven.
Get a call about something I have to do tomorrow.
Sit down to send Ryan a paper for school that is on my computer.
Answer a few important emails.
Which leads me to this....
I have no idea what I do with my time. I guess I should get a job that brings in money so that I can do something important with my life.
