It's Friday!  Do you ever wonder if you will make it to this day?
Here are some of the things I did this week:

  • Took treats (capri suns and homemade rice krispy treats) to three different baseball games---pheeew!  Now our treat duty is done for the season!
  • Dressed two ballerinas for ballet portraits in recital outfits.
  • Attended 1 tball game, 2 fastpitch games, and 2 machine pitch games.
  • Took children to music group to grow their talent in guitar playing (or maybe just to have fun)
  • Went to a women's church activity--Swap Meet this month.  I did pass on (get rid of!) three boxes of clothing, 1 box spring, 1 old Christmas tree, some random toys, and maybe a few other pieces of junk  treasures for others to have.
  • Have washed and dried many loads of laundry, of which NONE are folded yet.
  • Put a child in braces, and am now feeling $5,000 poorer.
  • e-filed my taxes (nothing like procrastinating until the day they are due)
  • Taught my 5th grade math team about "the great problem" that they will need to conquer at the next competition
  • Woke up at 5:00 every day this week, that is no small task!  I wouldn't have done it if I hadn't had a friend meeting me to go running---nothing like peer pressure.
  • It's hard to say what else happened this week. . . . . . .I can't always remember that far back!

I'm tired.  It's only 5:13 pm on Friday.  I feel like crawling in my bed and watching a movie.  I don't feel like making dinner.  But, as mothers always do------we muster up a little energy and get things done.  Somedays our efforts are gourmet, and sometimes they just work---but both are good to me.  Somedays its chicken nuggets, and somedays its homemade bread and soup.  My list might look supernatural, but its not.  Write down all of the things you've done this week as a mom.  You'll surprise yourself.  We don't have to mention that my sink is currently full of dishes, my bedroom is yearning to be clean, and that the baby is running around the house in just a onesie.  It's a great day.  It's a great week.  Even when we're tired.
