About That Resolution..00
I seem to remember saying we were going to slow down. This week and last are showing that we're breaking that resolution. It just has seemed to be "the perfect storm" of things to do. I won't even go into last week but this week includes. Mon-2 dance lessons at 6 and 8:15, basketball practice from 5:15 to 6:45 and a 7:00 o'clock basketball game. You'll notice this means I needed to be several places at one time. This involved lots of driving back and forth and leaving the littles in the van, since taking in and out of seats is the time consuming part. Yesterday I also had to return some things to a store (2 wasted hours) and did the taxes (ick!). Tonight is basketball practice and a basketball game. Wednesday is basketball practice, Kid's Klub at church and my ds's birthday. Thursday basketball game. Friday ds #3 basketball game, sleepover birthday party for ds #2, cub scout meeting that I have to attend, leave to pick up ds#2 and then return to meeting and dd #1 has a pizza party at pizza hut for her basketball team winning which I have no idea how I'm going to get her there. Saturday I need to get assorted boys home and we have two basketball practices. Ok, I'm tired just thinking about it. This is the last week for dd#2's basketball team and #2 and #3's should be over in a couple weeks. That will just leave ds playing on the school team. Dd #1 has decided to not do track and be in drama instead. Just as many practices I'm sure but no sitting at track meets or waiting to pick her up from the bus. Ok, this turned into a big vent. It's not that I mind anything they do, I just always feel so time pressured because if you're driving around in the evening all the homework, housework, cooking, laundry, errands must be done before about 5:00. We could become hermits I suppose but I know none of us (except maybe dh, who refuses to leave the house) would like it.
