...because on days like today, I just sit down.
The Nice Kid leaves for Disney in Orlando with the school chorus tomorrow. The Big Boy leaves for Lousiana on business Wednesday.
The washing machine died yesterday and last week was vacation.
Today? Pick up Kid#3 at 3 o'clock. Pick up Kid#2 at 3 o'clock. Drop off Kid#3 20 miles away at 3 o'clock. Drop off Kid#2 at 4:30. Pick up Kid#3 20 miles away at 4:30. Basketball game for Kid#2 at 6. Basketball game for Kid#3 at 7:30.
Kid#1 turned 29 yesterday. She has finals through Wednesday so we didn't even TALK about a birthday celebration. That sucks.
In here somewhere? Food. Homework. Get enough clothes washed to make it through the next few days.
Y'all...this is NORMAL for people with kids. These kids play one sport a semester. Chorus is a class. Christmas programs are par for the course...there will be another one next year. I need to spend an entire DAY hauling stuff OUT of this house, so that I can bring more stuff IN.
I used to be competent. I used to be the organizational FOOL of the English department. Now? I'm just bumfuzzled.
I need a wife.
