When I first typed this title, I typed January. Apparently I’m a little slow. 😉 Here’s what happened on March 15, 2014.
Waking to the pitter patter of 3 hungry little boys racing up the stairs and into the kitchen, (Mr. 8 had a friend spend the night), I was pleasantly surprised that they lasted until 7:17. I started some Citrus Fresh in the diffuser, and took orders for breakfast. They wanted pancakes and bacon. So be it!
8:00 ~ Thankful for the foresight to get a pot of cold brew going the day before, I drained it while preparing breakfast and getting myself ready for the day.
8:40 ~ I made my breakfast to go (bacon, egg, and cheese on toast, and two clementines), stuffed it in my coat pockets, grabbed my iced coffee, and headed out the door. Once a month I volunteer to “work” at the library, which more or less means I get to sit in a quiet spot for 2 1/2 hours and catch up on social media and email. Winning!
11:30 ~ Closed up the library and took the key back to the bank, then picked up the mail next door before walking home. It was a beautiful day!
Oooo, fun mail! Looking forward to an April Oily Blog hop where we’ll all ditch the chemicals in our homes. Stay tuned!
11:45 – 5:00 I’m not sure what happened to these hours, but it went something like this. Clean the kitchen,
(pretty sure I need new measuring spoons; they’ve been bit by the garbage disposal one too many times), supervise “you’re on your own” lunch, snuggle Miss 1 until she fell asleep for a nap, do a happy dance when someone posts on local buy/sell/trade that they’re looking for an extra fridge and we *just so happen* to have an extra in our garage that my husband *just so happened* to be cleaning out at that very moment,
take photos of said fridge, sell it (woo-hoo!), supervise the cleaning out (great job for the kids), decide to grill for supper, bathe a muddy little girl, attempt to pull splinter out of a child’s finger,
make buns for hamburgers and brats, thaw hamburger and brats,
discover rotting produce (hate it when that happens!),
laugh at them laughing with each other. Something like that.
5:00 ~ Then we busted out the grill and got some supper going. Ever ask a 10yo to take a simple photo? 25 photos and lots of giggles later… not so simple.
6:30 ~ Started barking orders for showers and baths and getting ready for bed early, because everyone was exhausted after a long day of playing and working. Kids entertained themselves downstairs (how fun is it to type that sentence?!) until way past bedtime, and as long as they were entertained, I had plenty to do!
7:30 ~ Visited with the people who came to get the fridge. One less thing in the garage. Yes!
8:30 ~ Went to find the littles to brush teeth. Found them here
10:00ish ~ I almost always end my day with an Epsom Salt bath laced with essential oils (lavender and lemon are a favorite combo) ever since I discovered that they completely eliminate my nightly, pregnancy-related, jump out of the bed in the middle of the night, Charlie Horse-type leg cramps. Glory hallelujah!
11:00ish ~ Off to bed!
