A Run, Run, Run Day!

No time for more than a list today! Sometimes those crazy days come along when we just have to "run, run, run" all day!
  • Started out the day getting everyone up and ready for school/work. Lunches packed, breakfast made, everyone clean and dressed and out the door.
  • Drove to Janelle to school while Connor rode his bike.
  • Drove Chris to the car repair shop to pick up our now extremely valuable nine-year-old Neon.
  • Picked up milk on the way home.
  • Grabbed some breakfast and tidied up the kitchen.
  • Started cleaning Janelle's room. Now that is a huge job!
  • Welcomed Jocelyn and her parents and her beautiful 6-day-old daughter Eliana for a quick visit. I even got to feed the baby!
  • Finished cleaning Janelle's room, and going through all the clothes to swap out for summer clothes. Sorted outgrown clothing into bags: good will, back to Tracy, stuff that is still cute enough for Hailey.
  • Put laundry in the washer.
  • Inhaled a quick lunch.
And now I'm writing my blog. Still to do today:
  • Start some pizza dough in the bread maker.
  • Go visit Connor at school to watch part of his "Medieval Feast".
  • Run to Walmart for soccer cleats and dress shoes for Janelle.
  • Stop at the grocery store for pizza toppings.
  • Pick up the kids at school.
  • Laundry.
  • Help Connor get his room tidied.
  • Get the guest room ready for Nana.
  • Laundry.
  • Clean all three bathrooms.
  • Supervise homework.
  • Feed supper.
  • Take Janelle to her first soccer practice of the season.
  • Clean up the kitchen.
  • Laundry.
  • Put two kids to bed (unless I can convince Daddy to do it tonight!)
  • Finish whatever I haven't gotten done yet.
  • Fall into bed, definitely exhausted!
Sorry! No time for being literary or philosophical today. Today I have to be a Mom!


  1. You forgot to add breathe to your list.
    Congratulate Jocelyn on her precious new little girl.

    Julie (so as not to confuse Chris with the initials)

  2. Thursdays always seem to be like that for me. Hope today is slower. Have a good weekend.

  3. I call those days my "Running a mommy marathon" days ... whew!
