  • Bored? I have no time for boredom. I am not sure I remember what boredom feels like. This is my down time right now. Munching on my lunch and reading questions.

  • This weeks different lol. Its prom week so I have my regular daily stuff (clean, cook, errands, etc) plus getting all the things ready for my son for prom. I had to get the tux picked up yesterday, flowers today, schedule the photographer etc.

    Normally though I wake up, get the kids off to school, drink some coffee, piddle online, clean, take something out to defrost for dinner, walk the dogs, do some laundry (usually start it when I walk to the dogs). After that if I need any errands to run (video store, groceries etc) I do them at that time. I come home, mop, wipe down counters, pick up the kids, come home start dinner, finish laundry, and then its homework, reading, bath time for the kids & bedtime.

  • PS I am never bored because if I have time to be bored there are plenty of volunteer type jobs at my kids school. I can pop on over there and ask the teachers or admins if they need me for anything, not to mention I forgot to add all the after school sports my kids play.

  • That's normal day if we are home and have nothing special. On Mondays we are gone all day for our homeschool co-op, Monday nights the kids have scouts. On Wednesday mornings we go to the library for story hour for the little one. We also may have other field trips or activities plan through out the week. I do my best to keep those for after 2:00 pm. That may mean cutting the little ones nap short, but if that happens then I just put him to bed early that night. Today is an abnormal day for us. It's our daughter's b-day and we are having a b-day party for her today.
