Here is a rundown of my day so far:
4:20am - woke up and fed Emily
5:00am - worked out with my husband and his sister in our family room (we started the P90X program yesterday and it is kicking my behind! I haven't worked out for about 9 months and I am so out of shape! yikes!!)
6:00am - mopped the floors (I figured that I was up and the kids were still asleep so I would hurry and get it done!)
6:30am - showered and got ready for the day - at this point I was feeling good about being up so early and glad that I had already accomplished so much - thinking "this is a good schedule - I like this!"
7:00am - made breakfast and ate
7:15am - 8:00am - fed the kids, made Tyler's lunch and got him off to school
8:15am - fed Emily again while sitting on the couch fighting to stay awake - started thinking "maybe this isn't such a great schedule after all - I am really getting tired!"
9:00am - cancelled Nathan's play date with his cousin because I was too tired to load the kids in the car to drive him there!
10:00am - fighting to stay awake again and thinking that I really need a nap, but with 3 kids at home I know that is not going to happen. I cleaned the kitchen and did some laundry.
10:30am - the kids were hungry so I fed them lunch and I had my lunch also because I was already starving from being up so early!
11:00am - fed and bathed Emily and got Matthew ready for school.
12:00pm - got Matthew off to Preschool and put Nathan down for a nap. I start thinking that I might get a little nap at this point.
12:15pm - got a call from Tyler's school that he was in the nurse's office with a headache so I got Nathan up from his nap, loaded him and Emily in the car and went and picked him up. I realized that I am not getting a nap and I actually start feeling less tired - probably my adrenaline kicking in.
12: 40pm - Tyler said that his head doesn't hurt anymore and he wants to go back to school. sorry - that is not happening pal!
2:00pm - Now - the house is actually pretty quiet. Emily is asleep and Tyler and Nathan are watching a show. Tyler doesn't seem very sick - he is acting fine. I am hoping that he doesn't have the flu or something like that! At this point I am thinking "I could do this again, I am not that tired!" but I still have a lot left to do: pick Matthew up in 30 minutes, take Matthew to soccer practice, make and feed everyone dinner, bathe the kids, do homework, do more laundry, pick up the house, etc. etc. etc.! I might be speaking a different story around 6pm tonight!! :)
