Unbelievable, February 8 and it is pouring rain outside with a bonus of several inches of snow expected to follow. I think it's actually thundering or maybe that's just the sound of our shingles blowing off... On a cold and rainy night, there's nothing better than sitting in front of the fire with a good book, or better yet, a good blog (hee hee).
Sundays are our family's day to try to get ready for the coming week. You know, compare schedules, make sure everyone knows where they are suppsed to be on what day and at what time. Did you see the word "try". Lately, Sunday has been the day to catch up on a nap and eat until I'm miserable. According to my last entry, those two things might not be considered living life to its fullest. Hmm, I may argue the nap though.
So, the goal for this week - get up at 6 a.m. to exercise then get ready for work, ready the backpacks, pack afterschool snacks, put the dog out and kiss the kids before putting them on the bus. After work, make supper, play with kids, throw some laundry in, plan the menu for the week, bathe kids, read to kids, put kids to bed, wash the dishes, end world hunger, balance the national budget and last but not least, meditate for at least an hour for bed. Yup, sounds like a reasonable plan. I challenge all you other mothers out there to do the same. What's that you say, that's already your daily routine...
On a cold and rainy night...I ate a big bowl of ice cream with M&Ms and went to bed.
