So far I have done nothing but catch up. I have been going from one appointment to another. I have been driving kids to get glasses repaired, braces adjusted, dental cleanings and the most important..hair appointment for me. My Aunt Myrna had a knee replacement yesterday and I just couldn't bear not being there to support her. It was the first time I could be there for her and not pay for a babysitter. The day went so fast that before she was out of surgery recovery I had to head home to get the kids off the bus.
My world is really consumed by food. I am constantly trying to come up with new lunch and dinner ideas. I am now making 7 lunches every morning, 3 snacks and then preparing dinner for 8. My refrigerator is full, my dishwasher is constantly full and these kids are always hungry. This will take a couple weeks to get into the groove. Oh and did I mention that 6:15am comes way too early after spending 3 months sleeping in.
