Our new schedule.

Our new schedule.

This schedule is also known as the run around town, try to not die of exhaustion or accuse yourself of being a horrible homemaker. The house is sort of… I don’t even know what to call that. I’m behind in laundry, the beds aren’t made, the toys aren’t picked up – it’s just chaos. I always have the downstairs presentable before Cameron gets home, not sure why. It’s just one of those things that my body knows – uhoh, time to clean. I guess I want to make it look like I’m constantly cleaning vs. running around like a chicken with my head cut off, never finding time to sit down and breathe, even cleaning in between internet message responses so I can pretend I’m actually taking a BREAK. Breathe in. It’s a little intense. Breathe out.

Days like today are a little nicer. I’ve decided that since dinner will be fairly easy and Cam will be in charge of grilling the marinated Thai Chicken, I’ll just throw together a salad, turn on the rice, and fry up the potstickers when the chicken’s almost done. Therefore – from the moment we get back from getting Liv and after I get the kids started on lunch, until around 4:30 when the dinner prep starts – I’ll be upstairs, folding, cleaning, drying, sorting, hanging, dying over, and FINISHING a bunch of laundry. Laundry is one of those neverending battles.

Cameron has tomorrow off, Liv’s got to be at school by 9:00am but other than that it’s a pretty wide open day. I know Cameron has some things he wants to do with the cars, including a little carpet shampooing which will mean that the girls carpet can be washed as well with the leftover sudsy clean water. So laundry is a good way to get things OFF their floor. Then to battle the toys.

Well, my buzzer is buzzing that it’s time to go pick up my big Kindergartner. More tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™‚
