Just A Moment, Young Lady

January 28, 2010 by Michelle

I have a Progresso giveaway going on here. And who doesn’t love winning free stuff?


I’ve had a bit of a busy week.

Tuesday I worked in the office and didn’t get home until somewhat late. When I got home, I had to go through the volunteer schedules for a museum exhibit we were hosting yesterday and today at Little Miss’s preschool and finalize some arrangements, which took until bedtime.

Yesterday I left the house at 8:20 to get to school for the museum training. I worked there until I left to pick up Mister Man for language group. I then returned to the school until around 1:30 – when neither Little Miss nor I had eaten lunch. We got home in time to eat a quick lunch, then she napped for 45 minutes (yeah, that was fun to wake her up) while I typed up the instructions for the additional volunteers based on the morning experience. I picked up the carpool and dropped them at their houses before running to the chiropractor. Then it was back to the preschool for our family night, and then to Mister Man’s school for a presentation on next year’s school stuff. By the time I got home, it was almost 10, and I had to straighten the house before bed.

Today, I got up, got the wee ones up and off to school, and then I worked. Amidst answering calls from the school about issues with the exhibits, I got done what I needed to, and then I made dinner and fed the wee ones and got them into bed. Somewhere in there I snuck in a load of laundry.

And now? Now I was planning to relax. I was going to quietly sit and catch up on blogs and get some reading done and maybe watch a bit of tv. Ahhhh….

Silly me. I checked my email and saw a note from the principal at Little Miss’s school with her article for the newsletter. Oh. Yeah. I have to write the articles for the newsletter tonight and lay them out. I forgot about that. Or maybe I just blocked it out. Either way, it’s back to work for me. Annnnnd maybe tomorrow I’ll catch up on some of that relaxation.

There’s no rest for the wicked!

    I'm pretty sure you need an assistant. Well, very sure.
    Hope you get to sit and veg soon.

  • Regina

    Let this be a lesson – when planning to relax NEVER open email before blogs. LOL

    Hope you get some relax time over the weekend.

  • Connie

    What's the saying, “There's no rest for the wicked and the righteous don't need any” So, it doesn't look like you need any rest!
    Good luck with all you have to do.

  • Mary~Momathon

    Ugh. I am not looking forward to putting my kids in school (and filling up my calendar!)

  • Pat

    You are Superwoman. When I was this busy, having 3 kids at home and working full-time, sometimes I had a mental image of me pushing an elephant, sybolizing all the things I had to do.

  • Karen

    Hopefully you got a few minutes to yourself this weekend.

  • septembermom

    How do you get it all done? I'm impressed with all that you manage to juggle.

    Hyacynth – Oooo wouldn't an assistant be nice? But I did get to have fun. Friday night was my quarterly girls' night out in the city and Saturday my husband and I went out to eat with friends of ours at a great burger tavern. Yum!

    Regina – Wellll yeah. But it really did need to be done, and I had planned on doing it Thursday. I just forgot.

    Connie – I hadn't heard about the righteous part before, but I like it!

    Mary – Haven't you already been through this all before? You should be an old pro (no emphasis on the “old” part, I promise)!

    Pat – Not really. I don't do any more than lots and lots of other people. I just messed myself up.

    Karen – Oh I absolutely did. The train into and from the city was gorgeous. Ahhhh.

    Kelly – The same way you do. It happens. And sometimes… it doesn't 😉
