Arguing over what to wear as soon I open my eyes.
Jon out of town.
Being up early but rushing rushing rushing to get everyone out the door on time.
Work work work for 8 hours, crazy busy at work.
Pick up boys. Cook dinner. Eat. Clean up dinner. Realize there's homework.
Homework includes the usual practice pages and reading. AND a special "go for a walk and collect leaves to bring in tomorrow." It's not even leaf drop here yet. No leaves in our neighborhood. Also we have a Fall Fun List and have been saving this to do with Jon. Who is out of town.
Drive to the greenway. Kids bicker over the leaves. I pull leaves off the trees and suck up as much of a positive attitude as I can. (iphone pictures with PicFrame uploaded to Instagram):
Trip out of the house means we have to rush homework. Rush bathtime. Rush reading time. Rush bedtime. Lots of yelling. Starting the day rushing, ending the day rushing, with a mile-long to-do list after they go to bed.
Laundry. More dishes. Pick up the house and find this among the homework pages and artwork:
Laugh my butt off. Realize life will never slow down so I should find my zen in the chaos.
