A Typical Day


List all known profanities (I think I know them all)

Put dogs out, start coffee 

Let dogs in, make smoothie 

Wash vitamins down with smoothie while ironing shirt

Turn lizard’s heat light on

Toss in crickets, feed crickets 

Take note of empty fridge

List all known profanities (I make up some new ones)

Shower, apply face

Obviously minimal time spent on hair—

(hair will never be a priority)

And I’m off… to work

In car audio French 2 lesson 8 

(je parle un peu le fransais)

Park at bus stop 4. Text kids “r u up?”

Chit chat and pretend to work

Peek at daily prompt at 0720, 

Let those thoughts simmer on the back burner

Down time from pretending to work 

Means work on post content 

If ideas flow publish, otherwise finish at home. 

Text kids “r u home”

Head home

Audio French 2 lesson 8 repeated (j’essaye!)

Stop for food 

At home:

Damage control (“Who put marbles in the garbage disposal?”, “Whose dishes are these?”, etc.) 

List all known profanities (preferably silently)

Attempt to parent calmly

Feed and water: teens, dogs, lizard, crickets, me (why do I come after the crickets?)

Turn on my heated mattress pad remove face

Read, stare at ceiling

      1. Nope. Yours is perfect the way it is. It is good for us to see the life of a mom through your eyes. Makes us realize we have no right to gripe–well, except for physical infirmities, but for the time being (knock wood) I have none of those. I have only admiration for your taking the time to blog. I would miss your absence. I really am going to reblog this, but want to wait until your posting is well down in the Reader Seems a waste to repost it so close to your own.

      1. Oh no! Well, maybe you can give him away? I had one in my early years of teaching. I used him to keep their attention for my lessons. He did prove a bit hard to care for though so I know what you mean.
