  • Send off reports before leaving for work
  • Take dog for a walk

  • Schedule chiro appt or wait a little?
  • Checking road conditions ad nauseam to avoid flooded streets
  • Write day's reports in evening
  • Have BIG cup of hot tea when back home
  • Praise God - we have not lost power and are fat and sassy in a warm house

Swimming lessons. It only goes for a week, but takes up all morning and a bit of the afternoon


Tidy up house


Still separating new arrival from twins for most of the day. It is working in that there is peace in the house, twins are able to play safely without being bullied or manipulated, and older two are able to cope better. Down side is that new arrival is miserable. But he is miserable either way. It is so so hard. I don't know what to do.......

  • Work and exercise.
  • A little reading.
  • A little housework.
  • Pick up kids at school & drive them to book club.
  • Kid needs to finish derby car.

I'm annoyed.  I was all ready for my 12pm conference call, and at 12:02 the other party called to postpone it to 3:30.  If you knew how much it takes to build myself up for a conference call, you would never do that.  :P  Also, 3:30 is a bad time - at best I will be in the car outside the library.  (Wouldn't you know this is the one day of the month that I have to be somewhere for my kids before the end of the work day.)  They offered to postpone it to tomorrow, but that would be worse.  They also clarified the purpose of the call, and I'm hoping my super rare accounting mistake, which happens to have occurred on this particular transaction & which I caught in a later quarter, doesn't muddy things up ....

Crazy morning. Dropped ds off at college, drove home. In 16 minutes (six more than I really had available) I fed and medicated and pottied two dogs and a cat. And made my bed. And made and ate breakfast. And got an appointment for ds at the doctor. Drove like a madwoman to pick ds up again from college and am now at the doctor's office with him. Where I finally get to catch my breath.

Round two of craziness:


Dropped ds off at home after doctor. Went to pharmacy. Waited for them to get together his four prescriptions. Got one substituted to a cheaper one. Got some chocolate as a prescription for me while I was at it. Finally got to see dd at noon! Ds has his first meds on board. Now for lunch before I tackle a topsy turvy house and start grading dd's work.

Well I had that conference call in the car.  It started while I was still driving because my bratty kids weren't ready when I came to pick them up.  Their ears are probably still ringing from my commentary on that.


It was not a great call.  It took me a while to understand what they were talking about.  But I got through it.  I will follow up with a written analysis, which is my strong suit.  :)


Now to go get my ragamuffins from the library, and go home and finish that Pinewood Derby car....

Basketball and swimming done

Went to grocer, returned broken mixer that I bought as a frugal replacement for the fancy one that broke while making daughters graduation cake. It broke while I cooking for new year party. Refuse to buy another. Staying off the mixers for awhile


Still didn't vacuum


Really only going to make grilled cheese for dinner. They got veggies in fridge.



But I did buy ice cream
