Thanks for the info, Catie! (The kitty is Gordon Lightfoot O’Henry… aka Gordy:-)
BTW–Today is Tuesday. Mate has softball. After work my schedule looked like this:
3:30–leave work, go to Kinko’s, arrange to have mansucript copied and shippted.
4:15–leave Kinko’s, pick up kids.
4:30–go to McD’s for traditional chocolate milk and cookies, as well as mom’s mandatory ‘stay awake home’ diet coke.
5:15–after clawing through record traffic, pick up Chicken from home, drop her off at soccer, and return home.
5:40–let the little ones out of the car for 45 minute break.
5:55–sit down for three minutes, which is one minute longer than it took the little kids to run outside and get their clothes wet and nasty.
6:15–put Ladybug in the sink for a bath
6:30–go pick up Chicken, take T to school to decorate for homecoming (most days it would be karate), stop at fast food for crap-all to eat, and come home.
7:15–arrive home, give Kewyn a bath in the sink (because he asked)
7:30–family eats standingup and wandering around the kitchen
8:00–me and little kids lay down for 15 minutes & watch some little kid television
8:15–Chicken asks me in to watch Eureka (it was taped)
8:20–Mate gets home
9:00–Mate goes to pick up T, I put miniature tornado in the crib
9:30–I reprise “Sunshine on my shoulder” for the billionth time, along with the ABC/123 song from Stop the World I want to get off–it’s the only way the Cave Troll will sleep.
9:30 to present–free time–knit & blog & fight sleep, because, damnit, I don’t get much of this time and I’m going to enjoy it.
10:30–Wait for T to take his #$%^ing shower so I can go to bed.
Notice the bags under the eyes in the above photo? Uhm-hm…
