Wake up boys at 6:30 to take Roxane to the airport. Get boys to eat and change them for the car ride. Drive in torrential rain, hit Starbucks drive-through, then drop off boys at day care.
Get home, change into running clothes and hit the treadmill for an hour while watching 2 episodes of Weeds. Work all day with 30 minute lunch break to shower, eat lunch, and change Alex's sheet where his overnight pullup leaked.
At 5PM, pack dinner for the boys. Pick them up from day care, give them food to eat and tell them if they are good at Target while I'm buying overnight diapers for Alex I will let them eat a marshmallow on the way home. Talk to boys in car, then hit Target, hit grocery store, give the boys marshmallows for car ride home.
Unpack boys when I get home and really try not to get pissed about this. REALLY try. I knew Alex was too quiet with that marshmallow.
What's that you say? Perhaps the profile picture will show you that Alex rubbed marshmallow ALL OVER his face. Sticky wet marshmallow.
I could almost laugh about it until I saw his legs. HIS LEGS. I totally see why you would want wet marshallow on your face but your KNEES?!
Clean off Alex. Unpack car. Boys were still hungry when we got home so make them bowls of cereal and fruit. Bath, books, bed for boys.
Microwave some leftover pasta for myself to eat while watching an episode of Weeds and decompressing.
Get up to unload groceries, unload Target purchases, unload dishwasher, load and rerun dishwasher, do two loads of laundry including folding and putting away, talk to my sister, talk to my friend, talk to Jon, take out trash and recycling, pick up the house, make to-do list for next day. Do all of this (except phone calls) while catching up on NPR podcasts.
Write blog post. Go upstairs to bed at midnight and read until I drop my book.
