(Even Spidey needs to practice piano. Jack- 3 years old)
By 4pm yesterday, I wanted the day to be over.
Yesterday, Jack and I power-struggled over potty training. You know what they say about one step forward, two steps back ... I believe it's Jack's potty training mantra. But today, we accomplished a poop in the potty, and mom is happy.
Yesterday I made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Brooke reminded me that I hadn't had my weekly dose. But I forgot the salt. Today, I tried again. I didn't forget the salt, but I burned the first batch. Still, better than yesterday.
Yesterday, I didn't get any mail. Today, I got a fun package from Stephanie, and a gift card from Dear Lizzie. But no note on the gift card. I don't know if it was meant to be anonymous, but a huge, heartfelt, sincere thank you to whomever it is from. And to my sweet friend Stephanie, too.
Yesterday, I had dinner with some of my favorite people. Good friends from our old neighborhood that miss a lot. I didn't want the day to be over while I was at dinner, but it was short lived because every minute of our family schedule is accounted for, and I had to leave after an hour to be somewhere else ... just as important.
Yesterday, I found out I am in charge of decorating Maxwell's classroom door on Monday. It's teacher appreciation week, and I was one of two moms that volunteered to help. I am not crafty, nor creative. But I am helpful. And when I have projects like this, I feel overwhelmed and can't function until I have it all figured out. And even then, I am horrible at execution. The door will be ugly. I just need to prepare myself for disappointment. And I hate that.
Yesterday, I didn't do any laundry. Today, right now, I am on my 5th load. I don't like doing laundry, but I like for my boys to have clean underwear.
Yesterday, my boys ran out of clean underwear. Today, they have clean underwear.
Speaking of underwear, Jack has almost depleted his collection. Because I toss when it comes to potty training.
I totally forgot to pick the kids from school- but that was today. Sometimes, I hate carpool. I am probably better off taking and picking my kids up from school EVERYDAY. Why am I not doing that anyway? Next year, no carpool.
Yesterday was cold, windy, rainy, and then snowy. Today is just cold and windy.
And finally, today is one day closer to the weekend. And I LOVE the weekend.
