Chad & I agree that the last few months have felt like a blur.
We rush to complete the immediate fire in front of us to move onto the next fire that needs to be put out.
Keller comes bounding in our room thinking its time to be up. [Thank you Daylight Saving Devils.] He is promptly sent back to his room twice before I can comprehend opening my eyes. That lasts until 6:07AM.
Thank goodness the remote is on my side of the bed. Thanks to Disney Channel's Chuggington for entertaining my wide-awake child while I still try to figure out what day it is in my 'not-awake yet' daze.
It's Monday. Dang. Hit the office [i.e. the extra bedroom 10 feet down the hall] and start to answer the work e-mails that have hit over the weekend. Yes, I get to do this in pajamas & non-brushed teeth.
My saint of a husband has made delicious breakfast sandwiches. Kel preferred his Cinnamon Life cereal.
Chad leaves for a project. Keller leaves for better TV viewing downstairs. I leave to go back to the office.
Chad returns with a spliting headache. I'd like to split a few hairs with some of these e-mails!
Realize I better shower for the day to be out the door in an hour for a high school presentation. I think the students would appreciate.
Keller has now taken over the office & rules the pbskids.org world.
Out the door I go to drive 40 minutes across town to share the good word of SUU with a mere 2 students. Miscommunication at the school, students didn't receive passes, blah, blah, blah. Sure hope those 2 girls who seemed to care more about telling me about their weekend than college choose SUU.
Return home. Grilled cheese time. Proof a paper for Chad. Log into the 3 systems necessary for a simple conference call / staff meeting. Office just sent me a web cam. Oh heavens...do you really need to see my laundry on the extra bed behind me that I sometimes like to fold when I am on the staff meeting call?
Chad & Keller have rearranged Kel's room. Kel is still arguing that he can't understand the need to de-clutter. Shouldn't every child need a basketball hoop, TV with VSmile, dart game & locker in their room?
Out the door I go again. Had a gift certificate from Mothers Day [6 months ago]for a massage that was going to expire. Rough, I know...I mean....that masseuse had strong hands.
Return home to change posts with Chad who is now looking spiffy in his suit on his way to teach a little Dale Carnegie. I return to comfy clothes & a matching game with Kel. Kel decides Captain Crunch sounds delicious for dinner.
Keller has now downed 3 bowls of Captain Crunch.
We better get to the grocery store tonight or there will be a revolt in the morning that there is no milk for beloved chocolate milk.
Return from store. Pretty sure it feels like midnight [You Daylight Saving Devils, you!]. Keller wants to read his Elmo book. It sortof creeps me out because it is a book with a plush Elmo. But, Elmo has now lost both of his googly eyes. It creeps me out to read with Blind Elmo.
Last load of laundry is in the dryer. I might be able to watch a DVR'd episode of The Soup while I fold it all.
Chad should arrive home. I should be done folding laundry. Instead, I have a feeling it may be me & Blind Elmo asleep on the couch with an empty box of Captain Crunch.
Welcome to our blur!
