School is back in and HOLEEEEE. CRAP. Summer done washed away my memories of how freakin’ busy the fall is. Lord, have mercy.
We are starting to hit our rhythm now that we are done with Labor Day’s brief respite and it’s starting to come back to me. Plan. Plan. Planplanplanplanplan. Ahead. The planner aheader gets the easier night. Truth. Young mamas, take note.
Last night I had the amazing GRACE of our 16 yo son calling me at work to see what he could do to help with dinner. Be still my heart. The boy got those meatballs simmering and then whipped up the awesomely hugemongous spinach salad to go with the Angel hair past and meatballs. WinNING!!! He also chauffeured me to me grandmother’s to pick up some family tree papers to add to our 11 yo’s family tree project . A sweet treat.
Then taking our almost 14 yo to his French horn practice we had a raucous discussion on men’s hairdos (the boy is FINALLY going short–fingers crossed and double crossed, I think the Bieber look is on the way out!!) and somehow we were rolling on a drag queen discussion–don’t even ask–and Mama made a huge funny because that kid was almost hyperventilating he was laughing so much. Mark another “W” in the column. A banner evening. Topped off only by waiting for the horn prodigy for a mere 30 minutes in which I was able to read, get caught up on some emails and do a chapter in my study with my awesome friend.
Tonight I got a great walk in while our youngest was at cheer practice and came home to chicken and dumplings in the crock pot which EVERYONE loved….seriously, do you know how hard it is to find a meal that they ALL love???!!!!? Insanity. Hubs and the 16 yo enjoyed watching the World Cup Qualifying Final with the US and Mexico, I kicked the 13 yo off the computer and made time to blog.
I should stop while I’m ahead. It’s only Tuesday.
