Last Week

Life went crazy last week! Completely and totally crazy! So while down at the Y last Tuesday I realized... hey why don't I see if Brielle can volunteer down here! So I fill out the forms, talk to the guy and he made it sound like she could come in Wednesday to Volunteer so I get out of work and drive down to the school and wait for school to let out and while I'm there I get a phone call that Brielle won't be Volunteering until Friday. So Brielle and I go out and do a few things and go about our business for the rest of the day. 

I started off Thursday having to drive Brielle into school for an Honor's Club meeting before I headed off to work.

Thursday I knew was going to be messed up but it got even more so when Pete sounded like he insisted I go pick up Katherine to get her ready for her fancy dinner with the Champions club. So after work I went down to the school and waited until they released the kids and then got Katherine, got her home and had about 40 min to get her hair all done and get her dressed in her new outfit and then wait for Pete to get home so Kat could load up with him so I could get Brielle loaded up to go to McDonalds for dinner and then off to project club.

Brielle had a good time at Project club and because it was only her and one other kid there this time she was able to complete her sewing project while there which is a first for her. She was very proud and happy that she was able to do that.

So here is how Friday went down. I went and sat in the car line for about an hour and a half because I had to make sure I got Brielle fast so I wanted to be one of the first ones there. I got Brielle and by 3:30 I had her in the Y (I get the feeling there were a few speed limits I neglected to notice) and from 3:30 to 7pm I was there with Brielle and we volunteered down at the Y getting packets out for the 5k Run/Walk at the BBQ Fest Saturday. After that we went down and Picked up Katherine from Peter's Magic game and then ran by a pizza place to grab a quick pizza and go home for a late dinner.

Saturday, Brielle set her alarm for 4:30am though of course she refused to get out of bed until 10 after 5 and I was up at 4:45. By 5:30 we had to be down at the BBQ Fest for Brielle to volunteer which meant I was volunteering too. We did that until 10am. It was a long! Busy morning!
After we helped with the clean up Peter and Katherine came down to the Festival and we tried samples and then got some mutton sandwiches and then Peter took Katherine to Pokemon and Brielle and I went home. I went to bed! I passed out for about 2 hours and then Peter got home and we loaded back up and went to a friends house to try and help them with drywall though by time we got there we weren't needed but there just wasn't anyway I was going to be able to go from the festival to drywalling straight I was so tired and hot and it was so muggy.

Sunday it was Mother's Day! I get a day off. All I asked for was a clean house. Peter did try he got the living room pretty clean other than my area which was completely fine. Though I had to help lift couches. Sadly that was the only room that got done and I noticed how much I need to shampoo my main couch so I need to fit that in some how.

In other daily events. Last week I pulled up 7 baby sages and transplanted them and they have done well so far.

Also, ... Tuesday? I painted this while idly helping Katherine with her big school project she decided to leave off until last minute so she was up very late Tuesday working on that and then as soon as we got up on Wednesday she had to do Math homework.
Why do kids do that to themselves? I kept trying to push her to do her work and she ho hummed it. By the end she was like, "Yes, mommy I understand why" for why I had tried to push her so hard before.


  1. Maybe you should change your title of these posts to busy May edition :) just for this month! Whew! I always think we're busy and then, I read your posts. Hooray for a clean living room! I need to clean our whole house in such a bad way. We've been just holding steady with laundry and dishes the past 2 weeks.

    1. well part of the problem is also mon i got really sick so mon i didn't get much done in the afternoon and tue i called into work and slept all day so that put me really behind. doesn't help my oldest didn't inform me until last night that after the orchestra practice she has a concert from 6 to 7 tonight.
      i feel bad though i still don't have my laundry soap made if i don't get on that asap i am going to have to purchase some.
      you're always crazy busy yourself so don't fool yourself lol
      sorry 'shift' button on phone is acting up again... silly electronics.
