One Thing At A Time

There is just far to much stuff going on around here right now and I am swimming up stream and this is very hard work.

Monday Rene` came home to a house full of sweaty cranky kids. Allen in particular is not happy because I will not let him go outside all day. It is just to hot for that right now and he does not understand when to stop and come inside. Physically dragging him back inside is building me some extra muscles that I do not use. I decided that once Dad got home from work and Rene` got here we were going swimming and a picnic. We also stopped for ice cream on the way home after all of that hard work. It was lots of fun and it tired some of us out.

Tuesday I left the house at 6:30 am as Lauren had several medical appointments at Gillette. That was the usual hurry, wait, fill this out, do this, do that routine, but we got it all done so other then the orthodontist she is good to go until November. We met a relative for lunch and picked up some needed groceries. I had planned to go to the adoption support group in the evening but when we were more then a half hour from home yet at the time the meeting was starting I decided that was not going to happen, oh well we did get a lot done for one day.

Yesterday we did the school shopping for all five kids, yeah it is all done. Hanna absolutely hates to go shopping and she gets an attitude so this was no fun trip. The rest of the bunch did well.

Today it is paperwork, oil changes for two cars, and trying to catch up on laundry and housework.

I can only do one thing at a time and there are only so many hours in a day to do it, never enough time to get everything done. I am glad that Rene` and Karre are both is a helping mood. The three of us can get a lot done when we work together, now all we need is an attitude free day from Miss Attitude and things will go smoothly.
