Who's going to tackle Wednesday with me?

Jean in Newcastle

Recommended Posts

Working late tonight.  Not sure how late.


I just remembered that my kid doesn't have any clean clothes to wear to school on Wednesday.  Well, I did buy her a new jumper, but she was like "eew" because it is kinda big.  :/  I should probably throw a load in when I go down for some more coffee.  I should probably get the kids' lunches together, too, so I'll have one less thing to fuss about in the morning.


Wednesday is garbage day, the day I like to purge stuff and feel less gross.  I need to clean out the birds' cage among other things.


Would love to make a big ambitious list, but I think I will mainly be buried in work all day.

Strange weather we're having here.  Rain in February.  Not loving it.


I worked until about 5:30am and then went to bed.  I couldn't get up again - sounds like that nursery rhyme.  :P  I decided to drive the kids to school rather than leap out of bed at 7am.  They ended up being a few minutes late.  Then I took out the garbage in the rain.  Not a super auspicious start today.  :P


I would love to go back to bed, but I have too many things to do.  I am so stressed out about the call I have at 1:30.  I wish I had a job where I never ever had to talk to clients.  :/

Wednesday!  We had a rough start to the morning with our printer not working.  It worked just fine last night.  Why didn't we get all printing done before bed??  I spent about an hour trying to convince the printer that the new ink cartridges were fine.  I lost the battle and am planning to just buy a new printer today.  It is at least 6 years old and has served us well, but has been having problems the last few months... grrrrr....


To do:

tidy up

find leadership lesson for meeting

meeting at 10am

dentist at 12:00pm

Costco after dentist for printer and a few groceries

stop at Wendy's for free frosty for kids

violin lessons x4

deliver thank you's for yesterday's activity

no scouts tonight!  Yay!

take ds to get a hair cut

think about ways to make tomorrow morning easier - this morning was a doozy, and I don't want a repeat 

ie - pre-pack lunches

 - set out breakfast things

 - tidy up

 - make sure keys are where they belong

 - encourage kids to shower before bed

 - go to bed early!


dinner - broccoli beef stir fry

Good morning! We made an offer on another house yesterday, so I guess we should find out sometime today. Kids are tired today and dd1 has a doozy of a cold. Of course, that did not stop her from going to 5:30 am practice and her study session for her Japanese test today. We have State this weekend, so I have some planning/grocery stuff to do.


To do:

School for all

Order printer ink

Bills/household administration

Sports administration

Jen things


Kitchen clean up/ general pickup

PM practice/ aikido

Bank/pet store


Pizza night! Have a great day!

After many days of feeling ill and then feeling OK for part of the day but awful the rest I think I've finally kicked this bug! So far the kids and I have cleaned my room, had a dance party, pet sat, done dishes, and they are currently painting dd's dollhouse. Still to do...


- finish school

- laundry

- clean kids room

- make list of goals for the new kung fu quarter

- exercise DVD

- read for an hour

Phew, my 1:30 call has been rescheduled by the client.  I am mostly done with what I was supposed to prepare for the call, but it will be better to have a little more time to be careful about it.


If I'd known this call would be postponed, I would have snuck a nap.  Oh well.  Too late now.
