One of Those Days

Just because I feel like whining, this is how my day went:
* 5:30 a.m. alarm goes off. I get up at about 5:40 and start a pot of coffee. Drink coffee and check e-mail.
* 6:00 a.m. shower
* 6:30 a.m. wake up kids (one was sleeping in my bed since Jim is out of town so that one was easy).
* 6:30 - 7:27 a.m. Get kids dressed, fed, lunches made, etc. Yell at Jordan for backtalk. Off to school for 7:30 a.m. parent/child book club meeting before school starts. Late as usual.
* 8:06 a.m. back to the apartment to get Jensen's things for school and put my makeup on since I didn't have time to do it before.
* 8:40 a.m. Take Jensen to school. Get there about 8:55...late as usual.
* 9:00 a.m. Go to house on Misty River to unpack more boxes.
* 9:30 a.m. Meet with landscaper. Go to his nursery to see some stone selections. Get call from city inspector that he is at my house and needs to get in. Rush back to house.
* 10:00 a.m. House passes mechanical inspection...the last inspection (we think).
* 10:30 a.m. Back to landscaper and off to see a few houses he's done.
*11:00 a.m. Bed Bath and Beyond to get items for the bed, bath, and beyond. The list is endless.
* 1:00 p.m. Drop off beach towels to be monogrammed for birthday gifts. Pick up lunch on the way back to house.
*1:30 p.m. Back at house to unpack a few more boxes and wait for people from Star Furniture to show up to fix something they delivered last week.
* 2:00 p.m. No guys from Star furniture yet, but I have to leave to go pick Jensen up from school.
* 2:30 p.m. Back to apartment to pack up kids' gear for swim practice. Head out to pick Jackson and Jordan up from school.
* 3:00 p.m. Back to house. Wait for guys from Star Furniture. Kids play out on the street with other neighbor kids. That is awesome!
* 4:45 p.m. Neighbor Jen takes Jackson and Jordan to swim practice for me (love her) since I am still waiting for guys from Star Furniture.
* 5:20 p.m. Guys finally show up. Fix the problem while they sweat all over everything.
* 5:55 p.m. Guys are done in the nick of time and I leave to go pick up kids at swim practice. Rush back to house, kids inhale leftover pizza and change clothes.
* 6:30 p.m. Last Cub Scout meeting of the year.
* 7:45 p.m. Meeting over; head back to apartment.
* 8:00 p.m. Get kids showered, in pjs and off to bed.
* 9:00 p.m. Ahhhhh.

First of all love the label "Rita whines"

All I have to say if you get around to places really fast! Is the school 2 houses down from where you live? You're speedy :)
