Early mornings? Check.
Getting everyone but me dressed before we rush out the door? Check. (Please don't let me get a flat tire on the way to school since I'm wearing slippers and a fuzzy pink housecoat!)
School carpool? Check.
Oh, crap, did I forget to wash my face last night? Is that mascara smeared under my eyes or am I just that tired? Check.
House cleaning in a fluffy pink housecoat? Check.
School car pool again? Check. (At least I am not wearing the housecoat this time.)
Laundry? Check check check check! (And where's that housecoat? It's cold in here!)
Dinner? Check. (Oh no, husband's almost home--run upstairs, ditch the housecoat and put something cute on. And lipstick! Did I forget to brush my hair today? *brushing furiously*
I have four kids, three cats, one dog and a husband who drives a semi. For me, the average day starts at 7 a.m. I feed the cats, the dog, the kids, and if I am lucky, myself. I cook a lot. I clean a lot (but not as much as I should), sometimes I wear my pajamas all day and tell visitors I'm wearing yoga clothes. I tackle mountains of laundry!
When evening comes, the kids do their chores and then get to bed by eight p.m. And that is when I take off my "mom" hat and put on my "writer" hat. I sit at my computer and try to put words down on the computer screen. If the words are flowing, I stay up way too late. If they're not, I stay up way WAY too late trying to meet my writing goals. And then, when everyone else has been asleep for hours, my head finds my pillow, I put my ice cube feet on my sleeping husband, and get some much needed sleep.
Thanks for the awesome 'Day in the Life' post, Bethany!
