The insane days….

February 12, 2009

Everyone has that one day each week that is their ‘insane’ day.. and for me.. it’s Thursdays… mine begins at 9 (well, really it begins when the alarm goes off… but for sake of the ‘out of the house experirence’.. it begins at 9… Every Thursday I work at the gym, and immediately head to the school to work recess duty, and then get home around 1:30… assuming there aren’t any special ‘extra’ things for me to do…like pick up the cub scouts keys (every other Thursday), or groceries or just whatever.. you know what I’m talking about.. I know you do!

Today’s extra insanity is that the older kidlets have their Valentine’s parties at school, and Rosalie’s class has ‘adopt a tree’ (the class members all chose a tree last fall, and they’ve been documenting it’s changes each season, today, they will do their ‘winter’ assessment .. winter.. yeah.. now that all the snow has melted and it’s going to be 50 degrees outside… that’ll make for some interestingly boring winter photos)… Adopt a tree goes from 12:30-2:30, and of course I will have to be late to it…

Instead of my morning running beginning at 9, I’ll begin at 8:30, which really a half hour shouldn’t make a big difference in the big scheme of things but… … it will… that’s the half hour I’d have had to shower, or pack my lunch or I don’t know… breathe?

I’m Emmett’s room mom… so this morning I will be delivering the class ‘treats’ and drinks that he surely can’t carry on the bus… my Emmett isn’t exactly BUFF enough (poor scrawny boy) to carry the 15 drink boxes and the chocolate covered pretzels that were lovingly prepared (and then protected) by myself and Alice…Β  So I have to drive to school this morning as well… ahhh the life of the never stays at home mom!

We finished their valentine’s last night… cute delivery of Conversations Hearts don’t ya think??? Gotta love that Family Fun website/magazine…



22 students in Rosalie’s Class, and 15 students in Emmett’s class… That’s a lot of iCandy πŸ˜‰


Have a sweet day..

I know my kids will with all the candy and goodies they’ll get at their parties… plus we’re going tubing tonight with the scouts and the older ones have the day off tomorrow… but we’ll do it all again for Alice’s preschool party! πŸ™‚

    The iCandy is great fun. I have to be honest though, it would have been one of those projects that I would have looked at and said “how clever! I’m not doing it though.”

    Hope everything went well with all the running around and the tubing was enjoyed by all.

    Next year I need to start earlier. I was up until 11 on Tuesday finishing the cards needed for Wednesday’s party. 27 for each of my 3…for a total of 81. Then I need 41 more for Friday. Next year for our homeschool party, I’m thinking of making the Valentine’s from our family! Those icandy are super cute. My subscription to the magazine ran out…I’ll have to remember the website.
