That one word sums up the last several days.  I've wanted to blog more but we've been so busy I can barely get from one thing to the next on time.

Here's how today went, to give you an idea.  Let me preface it with the fact that Scot's car refused to start on Sunday so we had to have it towed on Monday and it's been in the shop ever since.

6:30 - get up with Jamie.  Get dressed and presentable to leave the house.
7:00 - Liam gets up, wake Scot.  Spend next 30 min prepping to leave.
7:30 - load up the family and leave.  Take Scot to work stopping on the way to get coffee for him.
7:45 - drop off Scot and head to Jamie's daycare.
8:00 - drop off Jamie at daycare and head to the grocery store with Liam.
8:15-9 - grocery shop then go home.
9 - 9:45 - unload the groceries, put them away, sit down to breathe and have breakfast.  Get Liam changed for swim lessons.
9:45 - leave for swim.
10 - 11 - swim lesson for Liam.
11:15 arrive home and have a dang break.
11:15 - 4:00 pm.  Hang out at home.  Get lunch, do cleaning, work on laundry, try to nap to no avail, make cupcakes.
4:00 pm - pick up Jamie.
4:15- 5:30 home long enough to feed the kids and myself.  Scot still at work.
5:30 - leave for Tae Kwon-do with both kids.  Jamie NEVER goes with us as it runs past his bath and bed time but one car, one parent, no choice.  He went with.
5:45 - 6:45 -TKD for Liam.  Managed to pick up Scot at work while Liam was in class.
7:00 - arrive home.  Scot eats, I throw children in the tub.  Jamie is now late for bed.
7:15 - Jamie in bed.
7:40 - Liam in bed.

After the kids were down, I made buttercream frosting and frosted the cupcakes I made.  Then I sat down to write an email to a friend that was waiting on my reply.  Tomorrow is speech therapy for Jamie and I still have to finish picking up the house.

I know that working parents do this sort of thing pretty much every day so I shouldn't complain.  And, really, I'm not.  But I'm not used to this kind of schedule AT. ALL.  This is what my life has been like for the last several days - hence the lack of blogging.

Swim lessons run all week this week and next.  After they are done things calm down a little bit.  I'm looking forward to it.
