Morning Madness....

Yesterday, Vanilla woke me up at 5AM. Since Chad is gone I would have had to get up at 5:30 anyway to take Myshel to seminary, but I really would have appreciated that extra 30 minutes. The migraine from the day before seemed to be gone and I was feeling pretty good. I was grateful for that since it was going to be a busy day with lots of running around. As the morning went on my headache crept back in, though. It wasn't as bad as the day before, but still annoying. They always seem to come when I have tons to get done, which is probably why they come. Anyway, Chad usually takes Myshel to seminary on his way to work and then I pick her up, but this week, I get to take her there at 6AM. After I drop her off, I run home and check on the other kids and make sure they're up and getting ready, and then run back and get her. I'm only home for about 15-20 minutes. I've started dropping Myshel off at school on the way home from seminary, too. It's nice for me and she seems to like being there 30 minutes early. I think she hangs out with her friends in the commons area. Then I get home and about 10-15 minutes later Vance has to leave for school. Then I have the next 30 minutes to get McKaylie and Noah ready to go, because for some reason Vance won't do that while I'm gone, or they won't listen to him. It could go either way. McKaylie heads out to the bus stop around 8:10 and Noah and I leave as soon as she gets on the bus. I'm usually back home by about 9AM.
Yesterday at 9AM, I was completely exhausted! I felt like I had run a marathon or accomplished some major feat! But except for taking Myshel to seminary, this is a normal morning at our house. I don't know why yesterday morning was so challenging. The kids were good......I don't know, but it took everything I had to get up and get some cleaning done in the 2 hours before I had to pick up Noah and take him to speech. Being a mother is crazy some days!

Yes, being a mother definitely is crazy some days!

I'm glad you had a nice Easter Eve and Easter. Your kids are very creative with their coloring of Easter eggs. :-) That is a lot of eggs to boil and eat!

Yeah you know how our life goes. Its the life of the soccer mom!

BTW have you seen that show the secret life of a soccer mom? It was on mondays on TLC (I think) but they just switched it to Sundays.

Anyways yeah I have another one of those wednesdays today. Today we have a conference for my oldest after school (atleast no popsicle sales today YEAH!), then bowling, soccer, and church.

This week though they changed activity days to Wednesdays too and its not at the church. GO figure. She isnt going because I am only one person and they want me driving all over tarnation. haha.
