I do as much as I can. I do the important stuff. Then the semi important stuff. Then the stuff that can wait. So basically the dishes and laundry get washed daily. The dishes get put away before another load is started. The laundry does not.
I teach my kids school. But sometimes we go out to eat for dinner or I'm throwing together the quickest meal possible at 7pm. I'd prefer to have a plan but they does not always happen. I simply can not preplan how my day will unfold.
Tuesday is an example. The baby got up later in the morning (still wee hours but later) to eat so we got to sleep later. The other 3 in turn slept later because the baby and I were not yet up. So when we were all barely up I called to get a doctors appointment. I had 1 hour and 5 people who were not dressed or fed. Well, technically I was feeding the smallest when I decided to call the doctor and he could stay in his footy Pjs. I sent a text to my neighbor hoping that she could take my older two but she didn't get the message until I was already at the doctors office. We got dressed and food in before we left. We were at the doctors office for 1 1/2 hours. Then home to get ready for the X-ray visit. My husband was coming home from so I could just take the baby to get the X-ray. I had to eat lunch and pump before I left. Preen I got caught in construction traffic and high school traffic. Finally to the hospital parking lot and I was lost. Found my way, got the X-ray, headed to the pharmacy. It is now after 5pm. No plan for dinner. Not home long enough to set anything out. I'm pooped. We made it through. It worked out.
Wednesday, I chased my tail some but I managed to get a few necessary things done. Including dinner!
I look forward to my next nap or day I fall into bed before 11:30. But until then I'm going to be hugging my babies.
