well, fancy meeting you here... do you come here often?
some days are ace and awesome and fantastically fulfilling and fun. other days are meh. this one was far past "meh" and into "grrrrrr" territory.
retrospective schedule of the day:
make food. drive childA to schoolX. home. (normally childA would be on the bus, but it has an assignment due and NEEDS those extra 40 minutes for URGENT alterations)
try and talk childB into going to school. (she is having none of it.)
make food. drive childC to school Y. home. (THANKFULLY there were no parks around the school, so kiss'ndrop it is!)
WORK - producing video content - aka "being a professional". (interrupt work intermittently to hug childB, make food for childB and generally try and be a good parent while ACTUALLY working on the social media videos on the sly.)
make food. pickup childA at schoolX. home. (childA normally catches a bus home but on sports day they finish early... and waiting is unthinkable)
make food. pack bags. pickup ChildC at schoolY. head to after-school activity D. (pay for extra accessory at after-school acitivity D because I forgot to pack mandatory accessory - of which we have about 7 at home... sigh)
neglect to WORK while child C is at afterschool activity D because I forgot to pack the folder with all the damn paperwork.
head to afterschool activity E with Children A, B&C (where I continue to not work because of aforementioned forgetfulness.)
drop childA at schoolX for activityF. home. (I need to attend activity F also, but since husband Z is late back from work^&*% I can't go just yet)
make food. try to look grown-up in hand-me-down sandals from a 10year old. head to school x for activityF. home. (I am not sure if I passed the adult-test)
some things are immediately obvious to me from this rundown...
J: i am forgetful
K: my kids need to make their own damn food
L: my kids need to start using their bus passes and feet a whole lot more
M: it's no surprise that I don't actually get much work done on a day like this!
N: i am LUCKY i get to have days like this merging my kids and my home and my business life... i am not unaware of this.
you feel me??
**apologies for the lack of capital letters. it's a "screw-the-rules" kinda day.
