An ordinary day. Bet you can relate.

February 10, 2009

Dani asked me what fun things I had planned for the week….
I know she wasn’t being serious, because really – what fun things do I usually tell her I do during the week?  It made me think though, about what I did today.  Since I don’t have any great recipes to share, here’s my ordinary day:

•wake up when jim heads out.  make sam breakfast. shower. pack school lunch. hound sam to brush his teeth for 15 minutes before he actually does it.  wake claudia up.  make claudia breakfast.  watch for the school bus.  send sam and our neighbor off to school.  badger claudia to actually eat her breakfast, even though she’s sure she isn’t hungry.  find clothes for her and rush her to get teeth brushed.  (take a moment to praise God that I braided her hair on sat. and we won’t have to fuss about it again until next week!).  go to preschool.  go to the bank.  go to the grocery store.  stop at home to coax kitten into pet carrier to take her to the vet.  drop kitten off at home.  back to preschool.  go to playground with preschool friends.  home for lunch and tom and jerry cartoon.  make salted fudge brownies for only the 4th time since i found the recipe 2 weeks ago.  (this time they aren’t for me though!).  answer emails.  try to figure out why i can’t ichat with bea.  go to school to pick sam up.  homework with sam.  off to the library to deliver brownies to my friend.  pick up some books while i’m there, because i can’t walk out the door without something!  order pizza for dinner because nothing is defrosted.  study spelling words with sam.  work on valentines with claudia.  read together.  bathtime – when i threaten to smell sam when he gets out of the tub to make sure he actually touches the soap.  play a rousing game of pictureka and be happy that jim’s playing chutes & ladders instead of me. (it’s not my favorite game).  give the kitten eye drops because the vet says she still has an eye infection.  some blogging while the kids watch tv.  bedtime!  watch president obama on tv.  read a bit.  thank God for healthy, happy, busy days.  sleep!•
