This morning I took the kids for a walk down to the fire station and back home. When we got home my morning “fun” started. This is what I did the hour before lunch.
I needed to get some laundry started, and I told the children that they could watch a DVD, thinking that this would expedite my getting some things done. So I get the little DVD player and take the baby’s shoes off. They picked out a DVD for me to put in, which I did before I put the stroller away. On my way to the washer I filled the cat’s water bowl and moved the fan to blow in to where the children were watching their DVD. I read a page of a kids book because my son wanted to know the name of the puppy in the book. Then I clipped my hair out of my face and off my neck because I was hot from the walk. It’s much cooler now, just sticking out all over. Still didn’t start the washer.
I answered approx. 20 questions from my son and remembered I needed to brush my teeth, but made myself get the washer loaded. While the washer was loading I handed out beef sticks to the kids and realized I needed to make some drink. I got out the pitcher and told my son to bring his basket down while I hung a towel outside to dry. After settling the dispute about my older daughter being on my son’s side of the couch I checked the washer. On the way I picked up the baby girl’s stuffed dog to put in her crib because then I wouldn’t have to look for it at nap time. The washer was full and agitating so I shut the lid.
Back to the kitchen I went to make the Kool-aid. While that was filling I brushed my teeth; thankfully I had taken my shower before my husband left. After the Kool-aid I made a jar of sun tea to put outside. While that was filling I poured drinks for everybody, noticed there was a letter that needed to be mailed, and turned on the computer so it would be ready in a little bit. After answering some more questions I carried the sun tea out to the sidewalk and the letter to the mailbox; all the while hoping that nobody I know would drive by because my hair really is sticking up crazy. After picking up the baby that followed me out I went back inside to upload the pictures. Photoshop was next then I finished Wordless Wednesday.
The washer was done so the clothes needed to be put in the dryer. The baby girl had spit up on her clothes and the couch so I cleaned her and the couch up. After I put the DVD player away and answered some more questions I got the table ready for lunch. I switched the clothes to the dryer, put my son’s clothes in the washer, and went to get his sheets. I told the oldest two to get the bologna, cheese, and carrots out of the fridge as I was carrying the sheets to the washer.
After I closed the washer I went to eat, but first I had to get the kids started…
