It's still Friday, I might just make it in. Time for Five Minute Friday with the lovely Lisa-Jo and all the awesome participants!!
Today's Prompt - Race
My mind is racing so much ... that I just wrote minding instead of mind. My whole day was a race it seems.
Get up and get my kids off to school. Have a little time to myself while the two kids I watched overnight played happily with Lego. Off to Mom's Alive (an encouragement to moms in our church group)... be refreshed and encouraged by how my story compares to Cinderella (I slave all day over mundane tasks ... but I have been rescued by the King).
Rushed off to pick up my 1/2 day kindergartener and preschooler and then zip down to Panera Bread where I spent a lovely hour plus getting to know Donna O, my ride to Allume --Seriously this was the best part of my day ... so relaxing, so fun, so encouraging!
Then it was off to Walmart to pick up three items, which turned into $80+. I hate that place. Running late, I return to school to pick up my other two kids and rust to the dentist for their annual visit where I am informed that my 9YO has 3 cavities and really should see an orthodontist.
Then we head to daddy's work for some minor attempts at fundraising for the kids' school through Joe Corbi... I am not a fan of fundraising, even though I know it needs to be done. (feel free to click on that link by Tuesday to place an online order of pre-made cookie dough or pizza kits)
Finally, we arrive at home, where my son cries that I let someone else play with his legos, my daughters play tug-o-war with a dress I just bought them, and I can barely stand up straight enough to make dinner. So we warm up leftover homemade spaghettios and my dear husband rescues me and makes grilled cheese.
I head downstairs to do a special order of personalized birthday cards which took some thought, planning, designing, and then creating. (also a great part of my day... I love it when an idea comes together)
Kids emptied clean dishwasher and I intended to load the dirty dishes, but instead crashed on the couch to twitter and watch an episode of Royal Pains on hulu with the fantastic hubs.
Now it's 10:30 and the kitchen is trashed and I won't be home all day tomorrow either...
I want off this merry go round, and it took me over 10 minutes to write out my day.
Now it is almost 11:30 the kitchen is clean and the dishwasher is running and I am posting this and climbing into bed!
Love to all my Five Minute Friday friends!
