You can get a good foreclosure in my neighborhood!! You can go from your neighbors to some really nice white trash ones!!!!!!

Kelly said...

OH yeah and when are we meeting for lunch with Traci?

Jamie said...

I'm not alone I see.... all us mom's do this dance????

Carol said...

Please tell me life is just like that one day a week?

I felt exhausted just reading.

Now I want McDonald's to comfort myself.

Kori said...

Um, damn. And who said that you would have all this great relaxation time once all the kids were in school? Makes me doubly glad for my job.

Kelly - find me a 4 bedroom house and we'll talk! Don't know...tried calling her 2 days ago and haven't heard from her yet..I'll try again tomorrow.

Carol - wish this were just once a week...but...NOPE! Every Tues, Wed, and Thurs are the same. Monday and Friday we have no extracurriculars...but Monday nights are my Italian classes. So. Weekends are a blessing around here.

Marni's Organized Mess said...

I'll be there one day. Right now I'll take my days though...

Get kids breakfast.

Stay in jammies, no shower.

Oh man, if that schedule isn't enough to make a parent seriously consider boarding school, I don't know what is.

So basically you're telling me I've got it easy right now and that I should buy stock in my Crack Vitamin company??

OHmommy said...

I hear you girlfriend.

Happy2bme said...

I definitely know where you're coming from and I only have one child. Pretty soon we start soccer and baseball so the week is filled with nothing but running here and there with a little food and sleep in the middle.

Suzie said...

Good lord. What a day.

LittlePaintedPolkaDots said...

So you're not busy at all then, huh?? :) Take a breather! Hugs!

Breanne said...

what a day - my feet would hurt too. I have one and she makes me tired.

Colleen said...

Oy vey!

I'm jealous you met with a realtor! I'm anxiously awaiting the day...

Christy said...

Holy crap woman. Your days are entirely way too busy.

Domestic Accident said...

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Meet with realtor? Is your house on the market? Just getting a feel? You must elaborate.

Ps- I could not do your day.

Leslie said...

I need to go lay down now. That was exhausting to just read it.

April said...

Sometimes I'm grateful for my full-time job that keeps me from being a part-time chauffeur. This is one of those times.
