For the love of schedules. Sometimes our lives feel like just that. ONE-big-fat schedule.
5:30 - TC wake up and leave to the Police Academy, 6am - at the latest, CC gets ready, 6:30a - at the latest, brood awakens and body slams CC, feed, make lunches, vitamins, clothe, brush teeth, 8:30a - leave for school, drop off 8:50-9:10a, etc....
You get the idea. It's chaos in the most controlled fashion. Thing is - I didn't realize just how dependent I am on the schedule until my husband told me to go in the bedroom and sit. Defensively and DEFIANTLY, I replied 'uh - no! I have a schedule. The kids need....' and so on. He looked at me with wide eyes and said 'yeah. And I am their father. I can do that. You can go sit down. That's what you can do.'
I got in the room and had NO IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF. Sad, I know. So I write - Around Here? Is our giant schedule filled with laughter, tears, craziness, chaos, and love. Doing everything to keep it together day by day with three little humans, two full time working adults, a lazy pit bull and anti-social beta fish.
