My Day in Pictures

"This is your wake-up call. Get your ass out of bed and go to the gym!"

After lacing up my sneakers, had to do another quick fever check...
boys have been sick for 4 days now. Haven't slept though the night (any of us!) since Friday!

Off to work for to Grandma's for one with fever (you'd never know it by the smile, huh?),
and off to school for the no-fever boy (notice the toilet paper roll for nose-blowing)

Commuting in Miami: sunny skies, lotsa traffic

My "other" children

So much for the no-fever kid...
the benefits of working at the same school your kid attends?
You get to snuggle with him during your lunch break when his teacher calls to tell you he's running a temperature.
Then you get to smuggle him into your classroom and let him sit and have a snack and catch up on homework.

How do I get through a long meeting at the end of an even longer week of state testing? I sit with My Girls and... Hubby. I KNOW...I actually work with some of my favorite people. I'm crazy-lucky.

What did the Amazon Fairy bring me?
Answer: Smut books #2 & 3! (I'm not proud, but I can't say I'm ashamed either!)
Which motivated me to...
take a five minute break with my fave beer & try to finish up guilty pleasure  #1!

Fevers don't excuse homework,  huh? (Toilet paper roll still there..ya think we should buy some Kleenex?)

When Hubby surprised me by bringing home this plant, I squealed so much (I had wanted one of these for a looooooong time), the boys decided to kiss it to show their appreciation.
Our version of reupholstering for our new (old) RV
(more on the RV in a future post...)

Dinner Aftermath

"Holy crap!" We're on TV!

  1. This was fun! And OMG you get up early to work out. That reminds me to appreciate being able to work out midday. I'm SO not a morning person!

  2. Great post! Sorry the kids are sick. Show was great. Exhaustion has finally set in for me too! Meeting was too long. Wake up time, I am in awe. Way too early for me these days!

  3. So fun! I am looking forward to collapsing in exhaustion myself... soon... :)

  4. Ugh! Long day!!! I feel that...I have been having those all week..the difference? Most of my day takes place at night!

  5. What do you think of the book? I'm tempted to buy it...

  6. I am so tired just picturing it.... hope the babies are feeling better soon!

  7. I second Kitch...I'm finally tempted to buy that damn book. Ag.

    I Love Love to see how others spend their day. Here in the internetz we all are mamas doing the best we can. I picture y'all like I picture myself. But then I get to see some real pictures and it makes everything brighter. I love it.

  8. I see that Sarah was already here, and we're trying to divide and conquer, but I just want to say, once again, how much I adore you. I love this post. The TP, the unmade bed, the real life living that goes into every day. All. Of. It! Also, I haven't bought the book yet, but there's room on my Kindle...

  9. I'm glad to be part of your day (& life). xoxo K
