Google Search of the Day: "teenage girl in poopy diapers"
Maybe I won't complain about my teen daughter Anna anymore. At least she's potty trained, right?
In case you wonder what I do all day:
1. Get up (very important, but much harder than it looks)
2. Shower and dress
3. Check blogs (also very important, though I don't know why)
4. Feed children breakfast so they'll stop whining
5. Remember that we have to do our yearly standardized tests.
6. Look for standardized tests, always a time-consuming activity.
7. Inflict said tests on 2 little boys.
8. Check blogs again (why not?)
9. Cast on for the first of a pair of socks (3rd try, due to needle size and gauge issues). Completing these socks has become a point of honor. I will finish them or die trying.
10. Feed children lunch early, as my dental appointment is at 12:45 on June 4th.
11. Realize that today is not June 4th. I've spent the entire morning dreading a root canal that is not happening for another week.
12. Check blogs (because I can).
13. Go to garden with kids. Water things. Dig up some humongo weeds. Wonder just how much our garden plot neighbors hate us.
14. Reward the kids with McDonald's sundaes (they finished this year's math). Susie gets one, too. She says, "Now I don't have to poop in the potty to have ice cream!" Back to square one on toilet training, apparently.
15. Prep dinner.
16. Check blogs (don't want to miss anything).
17. Take all 3 girls to Payless Shoes so Anna can find appropriate footwear for her Easter/recital dress. Shoes are found, thanks be to God. Anna smiles and laughs on the way home. Will miracles never cease?
16. Take little girls to playground. Try to knit while there. Yeah, right.
17. Drive Theo to bus. Realize for the first time that he has started shaving. The world suddenly reverses its direction of rotation. Concentrate on breathing. In. Out. In. Out.
18. Cook dinner. I hate dinner.
19. Feed family. Minor crisis because Larry mistakenly bought watermelon with seeds in it. Gaaah! Much wailing and gnashing of teeth ensues.
20. Clean pots, bathe children, quickly, quickly. Must. Go. To. Knit. Night.
Pretty impressive, right? Now you know why I get paid the big bucks...
