Katie,
I hope today is an easier day for you. Although staying busy is life in itself.

Woke up at 6:00 a.m. to make breakfast for kids, get dressed and dropped off my little one at school. Thankfully, DH took Amanda and Justin to their school. Came home to goof on the computer, watched a tv show, went back to check on my little one at lunchtime. Came back to goof off on the computer again. Tried to take a nap but my head and throat hurt too much. Got up to have a sandwich and green tea. I'm all wired up so I think I'll go check the washer and dryer, do the dishes and start dinner before I go pick up kids from school. Later, I hope to go for a jog if the darn mosquitos allow me.

Took my little one to school. I realized Justin had left his drop slip for a class so I just rushed up there to turn it in to the counselor. I'm just here sitting around waiting on a friend to pick me up to go to lunch. Later, I'll make an early dinner, pick up kids from school and go to an athletic meeting for my daughter.

Dina, sounds like a day in the life of a busy Mom.

My kids don't go back to school for another week, so things are still in summer mode today.

Just work for me in about an hour, then meet a buddy for coffee, come home, make dinner, fold laundry and do all the crap I haven't done all week! LOL

Up at 0600 and baked NYT raisin bread then caught up on overnight e-mail from the night owls and insomniacs. Showered, then out to edge and cut the lawn. Just finished lunch (fish sammich made with homemade rolls and panko crusted walleye left over from last night) and getting ready to clean out the garage and re-organize my work truck. When DW gets home it's off to the local diner for dinner. No time for either of us to cook today.

1. get info via internet regarding where to take dh for his birthday on 9/11
2. talked to dd and dgs and dgd < who was poopy this morning and wants her moms coffee at 1 1/2 years old
3. hang by pool with computer so I can further check for hot deals
4. later today, I have an assignment so it'll be work for me
5. dinner
6. pick up LC61 so we can go visit Ginger at the vet [ok, kidding but want to]
7. sleep in a favorite place of mine

PS, JoeV, the other day when ds#1 spent the night, I made him Freedom Toast on NYT bread that I'd added Black Hawaiian sea salt, poppy seeds, sesame seeds and flax seeds to. I ate his last quarter of a piece that he couldn't finish just to taste it, it was amazing, who knew?
