6:00 am – The alarm clock goes off. I moan and hit the sleep button. Repeatedly.
Eventually I crawl out of bed, take a long, HOT shower, and wake Todd up by hitting his foot. Repeatedly.
7:23 am – Daniel leaves for the bus stop.
7:40 am – Todd leaves for work, Sarah leaves for school.
8:30 am – Joshua and Emma leave for school. I wake up Jakob.
9:00 am – Jakob and I head out to Josh’s kindergarten class for kindergarten helper time.
10:00 am – We are finished being kindergarten helpers. I am glad I chose not to teach kindergarten.
11:30 am – I drive to school to pick up Josh since it is raining. Warm chocolate chip muffins and boiled eggs await us at home. I discover that warm chocolate muffins are MESSY.
The rest of the afternoon is spent cleaning the kitchen, admiring various Bionicle creations, and doing lots and lots of laundry (don’t worry, all of the cell phones are safe – this time).
2:50 pm – Sarah arrives home.
3:10 pm – Daniel arrives home.
3:30 pm – Emma arrives home. We celebrate by eating ice cream.
4:00 pm – I assign chores and head out to the local grocery store for Monday shopping. Emma is my designated “shopping buddy.”
5:00 pm – Make some dinnah.
Strawberry Cheesecake for dessert!
(Yes, ice cream and cheesecake on the same day. We deserve it for having survived another Monday. Also, the strawberries aren’t moldy. They’re just frozen. )
7:30 pm – Family Home Evening (This never goes well.)
8:00 pm – Begin sending various children to the bath tub. This is especially important for Jakob, who is wearing the day’s meals.
Oops – one more batch of laundry in the background to fold. It’s just jeans (with Sarah’s jacket thrown on top). It’ll go quickly.
9:00 pm – Bedtime – because in my overly pregnant state I require about a bazillion hours of sleep.
How was your Monday?
