Oh, so sunny!

Oh ... yes! Back to the real schedule! I am sorry there was no blog yesterday. Thursday is my longest and hardest day and I crashed at promptly 7:45 pm last night. Thank God for TIVO!! It was a very productive day, but exhausting. Our middle child, Little Mister, has therapy on both Wednesdays and Thursdays that end up eating all the time from 2 pm when I pick him up from school until 5 ish when I return home. It sounds not so bad unless you figure in the 20+ minute trip to and from which always involves some sort of traffic delay. Add in some fussy, tired kids and the ever grumpy Little Lawyer and it becomes almost toxic! But, it is over for this week and the weekend is looking oh, so sunny! And the upside of it all? After eight months of therapy we are about to see the end of the Wed/Thur craziness! I will be so excited to tuck that one away in the completed pile!

I learn so much about myself with these sorts of things. I recently compiled a list of 100 things about myself ... oh, so enlightening! I learned I am very anal (kind of already knew), kind of rigid and way pickier than I would have thought I was. Maybe 2009 will be the year of relaxing! 2008 is already the year of getting in shape! If you have never done this ... do it! You will be glad you did!!! Maybe if I get up the courage I will ask Lawyer to make a list of me for me. I am afraid to read that one ... it would say things like ...

Freaky anal, morning person (yuck!), doesn't eat anything fun, grumpy after a long day with kids, Makes me pick up after myself ... yah, yah, yah.

Never mind - don't need the hastle! Have a great day ya'll!
