Good morning!

I'm enjoying some peace and quiet this morning, since dh is off playing pickleball and the kids are still sleeping. I need a day to hibernate at home after the Comic Con trip yesterday. Traffic, crowds, ugh, but also lots of fun. Highlight: Meeting Jon Heder, aka Napoleon Dynamite. *Our favorite movie ever* Got a funny picture of him and ds19, who was dressed up like Rex Kwon Do from the movie.?


  • do some cleaning - it is really a mess in here - have to get after the kids to pick up their stuff
  • put away laundry
  • unpack Vitacost order
  • work with horses, clean & treat feet. Saddles need cleaning, too.
  • clean fridge
  • make plans for a couple things we want to do tomorrow
  • read
  • dinner: I'm taking the day off from cooking, so maybe Japanese food or something from the freezer

I got sidetracked this morning...forgot to post!  

I had to run out this morning to pick up laundry and cleaning supplies, decided to grocery shop as well.

I have been going non-stop since 7:30, just sat down to eat something.  

I want to drop book donations off at library, so I have to convince myself to get up and moving.  

Maybe church tonight, or just watch Netflix.

Hi, chiming in late again.

I will be traveling for the next 2 days and leaving my kids with a caregiver, so I have a lot to do but not sure how it breaks down between tonight & tomorrow morning.


  • I woke up late to get the kids from the lock-in.  Arrived 18 minutes tardy.  I was the second-last parent and I don't care.
  • Drove Younger to a horse jumping clinic.  Hoped her 25-minute power nap was enough to keep her from falling off her horse.
  • Let elder sleep a bit in the car and then charged her up with some frappe.
  • Elder to math tutor.
  • Walked.  It was a great day for walking!  Total walking so far today was 4.6 miles.
  • Took kids to saddle shop.  My 11yo now wears size 10 boots.  This is ridiculous.  Also ordered a new helmet.
  • Went out to Indian buffet for lunch.  Indian puts all of us to sleep on a good day.  My youngest could barely survive the meal.
  • Worked out scheduling for the kids for the next 2 days (activities, caregivers/drivers).
  • Dropped friend off for ethnic singing event.
  • Back home, my kids and I all collapsed into bed.  The kids are still sleeping.  (It's past 8:30.)
  • Yoga.
  • Coffee.  Need more though.
  • I finally got online, checked all my email accounts, social media, bla bla bla.

To do between now and noon tomorrow:

  • More coffee.
  • Lots of "work" work.
  • Do all laundry.
  • Contact volleyball coach to request early dismissal for 1 kid due to schedule conflict.
  • Clean my bedroom as the caregiver will be sleeping in it for 2 nights.
  • Clean out pets' cages.
  • General house cleaning for a casual houseguest.
  • Shower & Hair wash - all 3 of us.
  • Church Sunday morning - the kids and I have to go up front as part of the confirmation program kick-off.
  • Groceries.
  • Get cash, pay bills, mail check to niece.
  • Clean out my car (it's still full of kid mess from the overnight & before).
  • Kids must finish their homework and pack backpacks.  (Need to know their schedule e.g. do they have gym on Monday ....)
  • Don't forget to pack school forms in the backpacks, or they won't let the kids play sports.
  • Kids need to lay out clothes for Monday.
  • Pack up the van to be driven to the conference - we will have presentation stuff as we are hosting the conference.  I hope we don't have to bring the big mega screen again ....
  • Pack up my clothes and work stuff.
  • Give detailed instructions to the caregivers.
  • Try to work in some yoga / exercise somehow?  Some reading??
  • Whatever I'm forgetting.
  • Drive away.
