Last week looked something like this:
Monday:eat sandwiches and chips, throw some snacks and drinks in a bag, run around making sure I have my phone, my computer, something to do to occupy myself for 4 hours while the girls (and two friends) take state issued standardized testing, leave at 11:15, say goodbye to a very sad dog, drive one hour (one way), sit in a hotel lobby with a bunch of other cyber-school parents and preschoolers for 4 or so hours and do whatever I can to occupy the time while the girls take tests, get girls Starbucks. Get home between 6 and 6:30. Jeremy has a board meeting-he’s already at church and won’t get home until 9:30.
Tuesday: Repeat all of the above except take girls to Chic-Fil-A for dinner, stop at BAM and Michaels, get home at 7:30. Jeremy has EMT class and won’t get home until 10:00.
Wednesday: Repeat all of the above except get home at 6, go straight to church , make hot-dogs and scavenger some chips and drinks from the church kitchen for the girls and friends and husband for dinner. Eat found ice cream and Diet Coke for my own dinner. Forget I have a meeting after church and get home at 9:30. Jeremy and I walk home together.
Thursday: Leave house at 7:30 a.m. for last day of testing, get home around 1:30, head to church to get a few things done. Make Dinner for 4:00 to get Anna to riding lessons for 4:30, Say goodbye to Jeremy as he goes to EMT class and confer with each other that we’ve only seen two hours of each other this week. We go to riding lessons, only to realize we didn’t have riding lessons this week.We come home at 5:30 put on pajamas and watch copious amounts of Boy Meets World re-runs. Jeremy gets home at 10:30.
Friday: Sleep in and Day Off School! Prayer group at church form 10-11 a.m., work at church for an hour or so after, run to Subway because there is little to eat in the house. Jeremy has no class! I clean the garage, the girls wash the cars, Jeremy comes homes and we have friends over for a cookout. Lights out at 9:30.
Saturday: Sleep in and have a family day at home.
Sunday is Sunday. It is a full day.
And now here we are.
I’m so thankful for naps.
And Starbucks. I’m also thankful for Starbucks.
