Alarm went off at 6:45 and between then and 8 it was my breakfast, packing lunches, last minute review for a spelling test, signing planners, feeding the kids, picking bus line order, and getting the kids on the bus.
From 8 to 10am it was cleaning up the morning dishes, playing with Matthias, plugging into my favorite podcast, and going on a walk with the little man.
From 10 to 11am I had a snack, picked some basil, made some pesto, took Huckleberry out, and started laundry load #2 of the day.
11 to 12? Playtime with a happy Matthias, watching Matthias and Huck "play", catching up on emails and reading through some articles my friends posted on Facebook like this one and this one.
From noon until 1pm, I had lunch with my boys, emptied and reloaded the dishwasher, and went over Nathan's sight words with him.
1 to 2pm. I wrote and published a post for my adoption blog, folded and put away laundry load #2, re-made the bed that had been load #1, and read Nate's library book to him and Matthias before laying Matty down for a nap.
From 2 to 4, I spent a little time doing some writing exercises from this amazing book I'm reading, went outside and hit baseballs with Nate, and watched Krypto the Superdog with my boys.
From 4 until 5, I helped with homework and FINALLY took a shower (which is not always guaranteed to happen).
5 to 6. I made dinner, began sorting through the pictures I had been taking of my day, fed Matthias (he couldn't wait another second), and gave him a bath while sneaking in a little time with my book.
From 6 until 8pm, we ate dinner, I played (and beat) Adele in cards, we enjoyed some cookie bars that Elise had made us, had some book and bible time, and put the kids to bed.
And finally, with the kids all in bed, from 8 until 11pm, we spent a little time on our computers, drank some tea, watched Project Runway, I worked on this blog entry, played Anthony in cards (and lost), I folded and put away laundry load #3, and we read a little in bed.
There you go! All in all, I'd say it was a good day.
