my Saturday

I'm mentally trying to prepare for my Saturday.  The schedule is killer.  It scares me a bit, but I'm sure I've had worse.  Rich is working an overtime, and so it's all on me to tackle this day's demanding schedule.

Here is glimpse into my day:

9:00am  Mommy & Me "tea" with Aislynn's Daisy troop.
11:00am Kung Fu lesson for Aislynn, Andrew & A.J.  
1:00pm  drop off Avery at a birthday party
3:00pm  drop off Alex & A.J. at a birthday party
3:00pm  pick up Avery
5:00pm  pick up Alex & A.J.
5:15pm   drop off Aislynn at a birthday party
7:00pm  drop off Alex to another birthday party
7:00pm  pick up Aislynn
10:00pm  pick up Alex

(did I remember to pick up everyone? LOL)

As you can see, I have a few conflicting times where I'm supposed to be in two places at once.  I have yet to figure this out, but hopefully I can pick up or take someone a few minutes late.  Either that, or find someone I can carpool with.  It's always a challenge when I have to be in two places at once!

Of course I left out the routine stuff, like breakfast-lunch-dinner-snacks-brush teeth-laundry-clean up, etc ... and I have a few errands to run, including buying Andrew some new tennis shoes (I keep putting that off and the poor kid is running around in shoes with holes at the bottom - he's very hard on his shoes!)

I blog about this schedule NOT to complain...but just so that I'll remember these crazy days!  I love these crazy days, complete with near-impossible schedules.  I'm only thankful that there are no soccer or baseball games scheduled on Saturday!

But even if there were, you know I'd be able to pull it off :)

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog and following. I am now following you on GFC and Networked Blogs, plus I will like you on Facebook!

  2. What a lovely family you have. Thanks for your the tip at Confessions of 30something. I am considering water birth at the hospital, but home will be wonderful if they will offer that alternative. I should blow up my yoga ball and get some figure 8 exercise on it.

    I am a new follower as well :).

  3. Wow! That schedule looks crazy busy, but I'm sure you made it! Thank for stopping by my blog!

  4. Thank you for visiting and following my blog and for the sweet comment you left. You have a lovely blog and family and I have enjoyed reading through it and am following you as well now.

  5. Hey hun! Thanks for following my blog! Came over to follow back ;)

    Re: older/retro movies and kids, I actually used to love watching the old shows and movies as a kid. A lot of them are musicals, which have the same appeal as Disney movies. I love them because for the most part, they are purely innocent. I think it's nice, with all the ick on TV these days, to watch something where you don't have to worry about the content.

  6. What a busy day. I thought my Saturday was busy until I read this! Your kids are adorable though. Thanks for following me, I'm following you on gfc and twitter. :)

  7. Thanks for following :) I'm following you back as well.

    I'm really glad you left a comment, otherwise I would not have known to check out your wonderful blog!

    My husband and I both come from families of 7 siblings, and while he wants to have 10 kids, I'm struggling so much just with one! Haha.

    I love your outlook on raising kids. God does bless you through your children, and a lot of people fail to realize that. I hope God continues to bless you and your lovely family. You're so inspiring! :)


  8. With 4 kids, I've had days like that!

    Thanks for visiting. I am now following you back :) Have a good week!

  9. Thanks for visiting my blog this weekend! So glad that my post helped you with making a button! That's so so great :) I've been a follower of yours for a while and I still love your blog! <3
