Tonight as I was about to totter off to bed, I thought - I'm tired. Just so tired. Why am I so tired? Then I realized. I sat down and thought about the stuff I did today. Not anything terribly unusual... in fact, perhaps less to-do items today than other days. But here it is, just for the benefit of my children who will one day sit down and read this to their kids... like how we've read my mom's journal about her busy life with 5 kids... Steff and I have an ongoing joke about the word 'busy' - because we're all busy. But alas - here's my busy day today ~

1am -- went to bed, after late night emailing about multiple Stake items
5am -- Woke up to Kassie patting my face... "Mom are you awake? Sorry to wake you up... Can I sleep on your floor?" Sure honey. Here let me just hop up and make you that bed right at my feet.
7am -- making breakfast, making lunches, doing kids' hair, reading morning devotional
8am -- school drop offs
8:30 -- YW emails reminding for Senior Dinner tomorrow night
9am -- drive to vet to get Geneve's heartworm pills
9:30 -- drive to Goodyear Tires for alignment, oil change
9:30 -- same time, grocery shopping next door. (must multitask)
10 - worked on talk I get to give in a few weeks at Stake Conference while waiting for tires
10:45 - home to put away groceries, assemble new lawn blower
11 - Mow and edge yard
12 - Drive 1 hour downtown to mammogram... 6 month follow-up checking on calcifications
1 to 2pm - mammogram... extra smooshy and tight today to get super good views. Awesome
2 - drive 1 hour back home
2:30 - phone calls finalizing next year's new girls camp site
3 - Vacuum and mop house
3:30 - kids home from school, snacks, briefly look in their eyes
4 to 6 - teaching voice and piano lessons
6:30 - eat quick dinner, host/feed 3 of Stephen's friends over for movie night
7 - drive Kenny to Scouts. Watch him rank up to Wolf.  Hallelujah.
8:45 - home. 1st time to sit down. Listen to message from school nurse about kids' immunization records out of date. Nice - gotta get on that. Put kids to bed. Read to kids (Kenny: random books; Kassie: Kingdom and Crown; Stephen: The Hiding Place).
10 - Hang and chat with Daron. Go thru mail, fix kids' lunches for tomorrow. Look at tomorrow's schedule: exercise, set up for Stake Dinner, fill 8 empty gas tanks, arrange warranty call for broken pool timers, sing with Janae, Kids' guitar/drum lessons, Stephen to YM, host Stake Dinner.
11 - Blogging. It's all good stuff. Lots and lots of good stuff. Very glad to have it all. 8-)
