It's Friday. Finally. It feels like this week should have been over yesterday. We've got another jam-packed weekend, and our next three are busy as well - camping over Labor Day, NASCAR, then a golf tournament. I won't have a free weekend until mid-September. Oy.
I like being busy, but sometimes I feel like we're so overscheduled. However, my weeks are not as busy now. Maddy has soccer practice only one day a week, and we won't start gymnastics until after soccer is finished. I think we can handle that for now. It's nice to be able to go home, put on my comfy clothes, and even be able to sit down and watch some TV. I can cook some decent meals, we can get homework finished, showers taken, lunches made, and not feel all rushed.
She's been getting out of bed faster this week, ever since I stopped Tuesday night and bought Krispy Kremes for breakfast. About 10 seconds in the microwave freshens them right up. I've been known to wave pancakes under her nose to get her out of bed, too. Whatever works is my motto.
Wouldn't that be a great alarm clock? One that gives you coffee, or diet Pepsi, or pancakes as it gently awakens you with daily affirmations of "you are fabulous, now get up and show the world what you're made of."
