The days are just packed

One day last week ...

7:45 am -- wake up to David saying, "Mom. Can I play video games?" Me: "No. I need five more minutes David ... "
8:10 am -- actually get out of bed.
8:10 - 9:00 am -- wake up Kate, eat, get dressed, drink copious amounts of coffee, somehow manage to leave the house with everyone in clean clothes and underwear.
9:00 - 10:00 am -- dance at the Little Gym for Kate.
10:15 am -- David's friend comes over, nice visit with friends mom, more coffee.
10:45 am - 12:45 pm -- boys (and Kate) play outside, lunch on the deck, try to catch butterflies, light saber battles, couple innings of baseball.
12:45 - 1:15pm -- boys go to school , quick visit with Mike.
1:30 - 3:30 pm -- Kate and I have a lovely afternoon with a friend and her daughter, drink more coffee.
3:30 - 4:30 pm -- David comes home, quick pick up of the house, mistakenly sit on the couch and don't want to move for the remainder of the night.
4:30 - 5:30pm -- watch baseball game at the high school.
5:30 - 6:00 pm -- pick up pizza, then David at game, then home.
6:00 - 6:30 pm -- eat dinner, discuss the highlights of the day.
David: Why do the days go by so quickly?
6:30 pm - chat with mom, pour large glass of wine.
7:00 pm - ? -- watch Mets game, Kate falls asleep snuggled beside me, David rewinds and replays highlights of the game as we watch tv.
(he's snuggled beside me, helping me write -- he doesn't want you to know he's stinky, but I made the mistake of sitting on the couch again so a bath will have to wait until tomorrow).

I love video games.


  1. You know you've gotten to a place in your life when it's very satisfying when everyone leaves the house wearing clean clothes and underwear.

    That sounds like a good packed day, particularly the copious coffee and large glass of wine.

  2. I always have to ask David, sometimes twice, if he's wearing clean underwear or underwear at all.

    And, any day that starts with coffe and ends with wine can't be all bad.
