my Tuesday timeout that led me to need another...

I think I want to take back my last post... you know, the one about being glad it's back to routine time. I don't think yesterday could have been more crazy if it tried. Here's the recap...

6:40am, Robyn drove our two girls for early morning basketball and band practices. Nice first day back to school. 7:30, Julianna phones from basketball feeling really sick so I go get her. Home by 7:45. At 7:46, my phone rings again and Emily has ducked out of band practice feeling really sick. I tell her to tough it out for now and I'll be there in half an hour. 8:00 I get Jenny (our 10year old Korean student) and Julianna into the van to head back to school... Julianna's feeling better and agrees that she's just over tired. Drop them off and pop over to the high school to check on Emily. We agree that she is also just over tired and needs to tough out the day. At this point, I/we've been at the school campus 3 times and it's not even 8:30 in the morning. I pick up coffees and head to Andrea's for our first Tuesday Timeout of the New Year. I chug/savor my coffee and we catch up a bit and then get down to a little sewing. End of the school day approaches so I go run a couple of errands and then pick up Emily and Jenny. Back to school again at 4:15 to get Julianna from yearbook class. These were trips #4 and 5 to the school. I then take London to the vet to have her nasty little kitten claws clipped, hit the grocery and dollar store, then make dinner and help with homework. Wolf down/savour dinner and then take Emily back to school as the band is playing the halftime show for the senior boy's basketball game. I don't want to sit around the school for an extra hour, so I head off to Starbucks. (I know, I know... two coffees in one day, but trust me, at this point I needed it more than you can imagine!) Then back to the school at 8 to watch the game and see the band perform. Have you kept track? That's 7, count 'em 7 trips to the school yesterday. I don't even think that's legal! But in the end, no one was really sick, the halftime show was awesome, and we won the game. It almost makes up for the fact that I couldn't get to sleep due to the Starbucks I consumed.

Oh, and as for my Tuesday timeout? I can only give you a little sneak peek of what I'm working on... hopefully you'll see more of it sooner rather than later... if I get a little time off of taxi duty, that is.

Whew. Wow. Here's hoping that today holds less trips in the car for you! And maybe less coffee. ;) Looking forward to seeing more of whatever that project is going to be. And wishing I had a small group of Christian ladies to craft with.

I used to have crazy days like that when my kids were growing up. Now I am glad not to have those kinds of crazy days. Well....most of the time we don't have crazy days. New Years Day was a doozy for us.
