DH works tomorrow, so today might end up feeling like a Thursday!


calls: vet, trash service, mechanic, lab, boarding facility

living room



try to finish prepping garden beds (weeding, forming, mulch paths)

errands: vacuum store, grocery, sporting goods

make some dang bread before lunch!! (bought it instead, lol)

seat work


read aloud



While out, I learned that it's not only my blood that makes me feel faint, though!  Useful information.  How did I parent three kids to this point??


ETA: Nothing traumatic or wild, by the way; just some fellow shopper that cut themselves.  Which makes the wooziness even more inexplicable.

Try to get up early to work.  Hit snooze about 600 times.  Finally get up at 6am but still not start working yet.  :/  Worry and stress.


Will get kids up to get ready for horse camp soon.


Thank goodness my conference calls are in the afternoon, so I only have to worry about the one report right now.


Do some housework, exercise, reading on work breaks.  Try to get the house somewhat ready for the maids.


Auntie will pick up the kids from horse camp (at least that's the plan) and take them to work.  I should send some books for them to read.


Maids supposedly coming at 1pm.  Keep working and get the remainder of the reports out so I don't have to deal with boss's wrath.


Probably have dinner out.


Kids to bed.

Non-fasting blood draw -- done

make and drink SIL's "tea" (I need more fluids) -- made and being consumed (1/2 gallon)

laundry -- in progress

thoroughly scrub stove top (my "sealed burner" stove is more of a pain to clean than the open burner ones I've had in the past)

make sure all is ready for busy day tomorrow, including figuring out snacks to pack and take

check blueberry farm website to see if picking Sunday morning will be a good prospect

visit with extended family


ETA: if I can squeeze it in more tidying up to set up biology lab station



I also realized (while doing laundry) that the reason I can't seem to last one week before having to wash my own clothes again is I had only 6 pairs of the pants I wear through the hot weather.  Before returning home from the blood draw I went to Kohl's and bought myself 4 more pair (plus 3 new t-shirts and 2 skirts).  I am back to being able to last a week between doing my own laundry.  I was so fixed on making sure my kids had enough clothes that fit I forgot to look at my own wardrobe.

Good morning! dd2 had early morning practice, so I have been out and about already. We then shopped for a birthday gift for the second party of the week on Saturday. I fielded a barrage of complaints about numerous things. She got it all out, I kept my temper and decent mood, so it was a win. I have a lot to do, but most of it is annoying and I just. don't. want. to.


To do:


weekly chores

clean off table/chairs in prep for painting

plan driving stuff for this weekend

calendar for next week

pick up ds3 

try to start planning for swim team trip (disaster looms)

ignore everything and quilt a little

practice #2



Have a great day!

Did enjoy his nice make up note


Nag my super awesome daughter (who used her street cred to get the youngest into 8th grade band and free use of instrument for the summer) to do her two chores


Daughter to work


Call lender. I want to know what appraiser said.

I am fried.


I was on the phone with one client (and its board) for 2 hours and then had about 10 more phone calls over the next few hours.  WAY TOO MUCH for me!


This means I have not done much productive work (other than blabbing) for the past 5+ hours.


On the positive side, the house is clean.
