yesterday was a fairly typical day for me. i thought it might be fun to take notes throughout my day and see how i actually spent my time. here goes:
1:45 am – finally get in bed. waaaayyyyy toooo late!
2:00 am – hear silas wake up. he goes back to sleep. phew!
6:30 am – hear lily as she thunders across the house with her stomping feet into our room. thankfully she wants to snuggle daddy this morning.
7:00 am – sean reminds me i should get up. i don’t.
7:05 am – he’s right. i get up and half make the bed. pillows are all still on the floor.
7:10 am – get dressed, kids ready, lunch packed, backpack packed, check emails, say bye to mom and dad, package up covered button hair clips for show
8:15 am – in the car off to school

3:30 – time to head to costco!
4:30 – home from the worst trip EVER to costco!!! unload groceries, repackage massive amounts of shredded cheese to be frozen, make piles of trash to fill the recycle bin… silas is mr. desructo and into everything. i try to contain him for a few minutes in his crib. HE CLIMBS OUT!!! my patience is running VERY thin.
