Good morning!

Hurray, a day without any errands or appointments - I love days when I don't have to go anywhere. My boys are coming home after their afternoon classes and staying for dinner, so I'm excited to see them.

  • school w/dd
  • have dh drop mail off at post office
  • office work (trying to get a lot of work wrapped up this week so I can stay out of the office over Thanksgiving)
  • dust & vacuum main floor & steps
  • clean upstairs bathrooms
  • clean fridge
  • water plants
  • tinker around with my hay steamer, see if I can get it working right
  • dd has Model UN and a violin lesson
  • remember to have ds18 sign some bank stuff while he's home 
  • dinner: enchiladas verdes
  • watch end of Youtube series w/ ds18, then watch hockey

Good morning! I feel better after 12+ hrs of sleep. Busy day here. It's Dh's birthday and he got up early to leave for Bible study, so we didn't get to do birthday breakfast. 

To do:

  • School
  • Pick up milk and bagels
  • Deskwork? NEED to do this, but may not have time.   Nope. Tomorrow!
  • Piano.  
  • Church   



  • Moved laundry
  • texted mom
  • mailed a card

Howdy, happy Wednesday!

Still stressed out, though I got a bunch of work out yesterday.  Need to send out a bunch of reports & emails and I have at least 2 conference calls today (ugh).  Also tomorrow is a "deadline day."

Oh and I am really ready to be done with hot flashes!

Positive:  my sleep-deprived kid was in bed about 9:45 last night and slept past 7am.  This is rare and also great because today is a long day for her.

  • Got up late, got kids up & fed.
  • Reminded kids to pack their instruments & practice clothes for 3 sports.
  • Kids off to the school bus a wee bit early, but the bus came earlier.  ?
  • Took out the garbage.
  • Cleaned part of the garage & my car.
  • Washed out kitchen garbage can since something leaked in there.
  • Coffee.
  • Cleaned the kitchen, bathrooms, and some clutter.
  • A little reading.
  • Caught up on news, emails, kids' grade reports, junk mail, social media.
  • Made this post.

To do:

  • More coffee.
  • Lots of work.
  • Some more clutter cleaning.
  • Exercise?  More reading?
  • Call TKD place and see if it makes sense to sign kids up for Saturday cram camp.
  • Find money for the kids' dinner or go to the bank.  Put money in the car.
  • Calendar.
  • Sign up for volunteering at school (not exactly free-will).
  • Get kid 2 ready & off to horse riding.
  • Help kids get through all homework asap after they get home at 9ish.
  • Wash & dry 1 load of laundry.  Get gym bag(s) ready for Thursday.
  • Remember to set alarms to get up early Thursday to drive kids to writing club.
  • Whatever I'm forgetting.
  • Whatever else gets done.

  • phone calls
  • write
  • more school with dd2
  • get everyone where they need to be

I made my kids a chiropractor appointment - the earliest I could get was next Wednesday.  Hope I don't forget.

I checked on the TKD camp and yes, it is good for my kids so that is what they are doing Saturday afternoon.  Since it is hard for us to be consistent with TKD classes with all the school sports schedules, this should take some pressure off.

I did my yoga and old lady exercises and tried some new exercises.  So far so good.  It's only 8 days until my 5K and I prefer not to walk the whole way.

Also snuck a nap.

Now back for my 3rd cup of coffee and a shower before my conference calls do me in.

Whew, it's about 5pm and some of my clients are done with their day.  So they probably won't bother me.

The 2nd conference call just ended and I am still alive (barely).

Got the kid off to horse riding in the middle of my 2nd conference call.  Now they should be out & about for 4 more hours.  The temptation to nap again is strong!

I would like to get at least one more report out before my other clients' day ends in an hour.
