8:15am-kids in car, drop off 1 at one school, 3 at another. Have 2 1/2 hrs of freedom-woo hoo.

8:45am-at the gym for a 1hr 15 min bike and 1hr of pilates

11:15am-grocery store-full food shop, can we say, $300, WTF!!!!

1p-laundry and dishes and general clean up

2:30p-drive to pick up kids from 2 different schools

3:30p- drop daughter off at dancing, drag others to swim team

4p-drop son off at Y for swim team-drive back to Cummings Center to pick daughter up

5P-get home, pack up the kids for soccer practice-shove any food down their throats

7P-get home feed everyone dinner, make homemade chocholate cookies, clean up dishes

8:30p-kids in bed-read stories, rub backs

I really need a glass of wine, don't have any, very tired but at least no-one tried to kill each other today, I call that a successful day.
