With Kim gone and Jack working nights, almost everything else is left to me.  Since I got off work at 4 o'clock.....

* picked up Kim's paycheque from one of her summer jobs
* picked up Charlotte at the sitter's
* got the mail
* smooched with my husband while I changed into Mom clothes and he got ready to leave for work
* took out bread, turkey sausage and a loaf of zucchini loaf from the freezer
* gathered, sorted and started laundry
* made supper (french toast and turkey sausage)
* made supper for tomorrow so that Jack can eat before he leaves for work (right about the time I get HOME from work).  On the menu for tomorrow: maple mustard pork chops in the slow cooker, rice with peas (cooked and cooling now), and some kind of vegetable.
* turned up FloRida and BEP on the radio while supper cooked
* got the Littles to do dishes with me after supper
* supervised Julia while she made her own lunch for tomorrow, and I made mine as well
* flipped laundry
* checked Julia's school dayplanner for homework or teacher notes
* from the kitchen window and back step, watched and praised Charlotte's skillz at "running FAST!", swinging, picking up ladybugs and twirling like a ballerina
* discussed how many books Julia could bring home on her weekly library day; 12 is just....too many.  She doesn't agree.
* opened bills, went through grocery store flyer and made grocery list for the weekend
* reminded the girls to feed and water the pets

* finally grabbed my iPod and retreated to LJ land after I broke up *another* fight about who gets to play with the dog/who gets to play in the bedroom alone/who gets to carry the cat/who is whining the most.

It's just past 7 o'clock now, and I need a hit of ...... something ;-)  Preachin' to the choir here, I know.

me to Charlotte just now: "I choose not to listen to you right now.  Leave Julia alone.  Go find your crayons."  LOL.  Back to Mom Duty.

What a week!  Four days of work including three days of cramming for a new job - my brain is mush. 

I christened my scrapbooking space tonight - it's soooo nice to have so much table/desk top space to work on, to have everything I need within reach - it's great!   

This weekend will be spent catching up on domestics such as laundry, changing bed sheets, getting groceries, vacuuming, and washing floors.  Exciting, I know.

Hopefully Kim and I will have some time to finish getting her ready to leave for school - finish packing, tidy up her room, fill a few grocery bags for her...

Right now, I'm looking forward to the clean sheets on my bed and not having to wake up before 8 or 9 a.m :-)
