I woke up at 6:00 am with out an alarm. I was well rested and ready to go because I had plenty of sleep the night before. I cheerfully place a breakfast quiche in the oven that I had prepared the night before. While the quiche cooked I hopped in the shower. I sat at the kitchen table and read my bible and prayed. Then it was time to wake the kiddies. I woke them cheerfully with singing and we all sang while putting on our freshly ironed clothes that I had so diligently ironed on ironing day a few days before. I remove the quiche from the oven and serve the kiddies breakfast we all eat together and pray for the glorious day God had ready for us. The kids lunches are ready from the night before and we all load up to go to school. I made homemade treats for the kids to sweetly give to their teachers and thank them for all their hard work. Josh takes Beck to my moms so I can stay at the kids school and volunteer for a few hours. At 12:30 I pick up the kiddies and we go home and have a nutritious lunch. The kids play great while I accomplish all of the chores of the house. I begin preparing a lovely dinner and head out at 3:30 to pick up Elisabeth. She runs and greets me with a huge hug and off to the house we go. The kids have a fresh fruit snack and do their homework with out complaining. I use this opportunity to homeschool Beck a little and get him good a prepared for pre-K next year. The kids play out side until dinner is ready with their daddy. Elisabeth comes in early and sets the table and dinner is served. During dinner we talk about the glorious day that God blessed us with. We use the opportunity to thank God once again for blessing us. The meal is delicious and the kids clean their plates with out complaining of one green thing. Off to their baths. Nobody fusses over who gets to sit next to the faucet. Josh cleans the kitchen while I make sure the kiddies get clean and have fresh jammies. For the rest of the evening we play a few games read a few books and then off to bed. Josh goes in and reads the kiddies a Bible story and says their prayers. Once the kiddies are in bed Josh and I relax with a show. Then retreat to the bed room. I'll skip over the bedrooms details. We go to bed and sleep through night with out being disturbed until the next morning. (add record scratching noise) THIS has and will never happen.
My day yesterday went a little more like this....
My alarm went off at 6:30 I pressed snooze three times because I had been awake three times during the night and was so super tired. When I finally did get out of bed, I walked into the bathroom to pee. I got up and looked in the mirror and realized my hair didn't look too bad I could just go lay back down for 30 more minutes and not shower. I rested a little bit longer but never could fall asleep because I was too worried I would sleep too long and be late for school. I finally did get up and went to wake the children. They all cried and no one wanted to get up. I frantically ironed their clothes and fussed at them over and over again until finally yelling to get their clothes on. I spent 10 minutes digging through our sock grave yard for a pair of socks for Hogan. (The sock grave yard is a laundry basket full of clean socks that is always full because I hate to fold socks) I finally get us all ready and we hurry out the door. On the way out the door I realize the children to not have lunches so I quickly throw lunchables in their lunch boxes. I pass out a pop tart to each of the children on the way to school. (It was a whole wheat poptart). As I drive out the drive way Beck is crying because he wants to go with me but Josh needs to take him to my mom because I have to substitute teach for the kindergarten class. I hurry the kids to their teachers and settle in to my temporary teaching position. Oh... I failed to mention it started raining on our way to schools so we were all wet by the time we got inside. Plus that would mean no recess for the day. YIKES! We don't finish all the activities the teacher planned for us. The day is hectic and crazy. We go home at 1:00 and I let the children eat cheese Doritos for lunch and gelo with peaches in it. I was tired from the morning so I sat on the couch for about an hour and watched TV until it was time to be back at the school. I drove the boys to moms and then went up to the school to sell HEB giftcards to all the parents as they picked up their children from school. Let me just say, parents dont want to be bothered at pick up. It is crazy as it is and they just want to retrieve their children and get out of there. They don't want anyone harassing them to purchase a thing. After all nobody has any money because we have all paid an arm and a leg in school tuition. After standing in the super hot humidity for an hour and selling one HEB card I head to pick up the boys and back home. I start the kids on their homework and they all fuss because they just got home and it was the last thing they wanted to do. Josh gets home from work and quickly changes because he has a dinner meeting for work. Off he goes again. I take the children to Target and we eat dinner in the Target snack bar. YUMMY!! and so nutritious! or not. I spent $167 on nothing we needed and I have to hurry home because the children need to be in bed. They all cry when I make them go to bed because Josh isn't home and they want to play their DS games. I say prayers with them and go sit on the couch and watch dancing with the stars because I am too tired to do chores around the house. Josh gets home late and we go to bed with a wreck of a house.
Maybe today will be better. :)
