Update

Okay, Thursdays and Fridays are definitely going to be a challenge.

Thursday, because it's going to be so damn busy, with Rookettes and working, AND because it's immediately after a full worknight.

Friday, because the off-work day is a temptation to veg in front of the computer all morning, catching up.

Yesterday I:
  • Dried a load of laundry before leaving the house
  • Made the boys breakfast - Tigger had sausage bits, Critter had a spam omelette
  • Finished a chapter of Order of the Phoenix
  • Got the boys to empty the sinks
  • Caught up on the hand-wash dishes
  • Put the last load of this week's laundry in the dryer
  • Picked up ladonna_rena
  • Started up Rookettes bowling, including extra start-up bookwork
  • Bowled a 192, 152, 132 series, thus screwing myself next week; our team took three points.
  • Dropped off LaDonna_Rena
  • Made King Ranch Chicken while Knight kept me company
  • Finished cleaning out my car in carline -- today I'll start in on coupons, fershur
  • Got to work on time and indexed over 7500 check numbers after indexing and double keying two tiny queues.

Today I:

  • Made sausage, egg & cheese biscuit for Critter, and spam biscuit for Tigger
  • Caught up the kitchen again -- Critter emptied the dishwasher sink without being asked, and the recycling sink was empty
  • Read another chapter of Harry Potter
  • Folded all the towels and put them away
  • Sorted the rest of the clean clothes
  • Caught up on email, but not LJ
  • Added a bunch of stuff to my calendar (and will hotsync after I get offline)
  • Haven't gotten dressed yet, so now I'm in a rush.

Amusements

This morning was the first dress-up day of the school year. Neither Critter nor Tigger nor I could remember how to tie a tie. Tigger couldn't find one of his, and he's still a *tad* short for Flar's. Flar tied the boys ties, where I could see, to be reminded how. And we bought Tigger a tie on our trip to WalMart.

This afternoon, as I was leaving the house for carline, I called the dogs to go outside. Flood followed me closely, and went out promptly. I had to call the scotties again, and they trotted into the jacuzzi room, right into the crate. Where they sat there, and stared at me. I couldn't coax them outside, even by offering biscuits (Flood got one), so I called Flood back in, and she got a second bone for being so obedient when I left them in the crate.

The scotties may be weather dogs. There was a brief but heavy thunderburst while we were out.

We got the errands-out done (my Wal-Mart list bloomed from 7 items 15 with the help of the boys), and I've finished my part of the laundry, including folding Flar's clothes, which I consider to be optional. The boys still need to sort and fold and put away their clothes, and Flar needs to put away his. But *mine* are all put away. Woo hoo!

Now we're working on policing the downstairs rooms for floor-level choking hazards, and other miscellaneous getting-ready-to-have-an-ambulatory-1-year-old-in-the-house class activities.

After dinner.

We're still on a sliding 1.5-hours-til-they-get-here time table, as I haven't heard from Wolf and Sydb on the road, yet.
