I’m the only adult in the house. The relatives are back home in Alaska, Nik is back at work, and it’s just the kids and me at home. Miraculously, they’re both sleeping and so I can cross item number one off of my to-do list for today, “Put Ellie down for a nap with a minimum of crying on all of our parts.”
Here’s the rest of the list:
- Put Ellie down for a nap with a minimum of crying on all of our parts.
- Get all of us dressed.
- Eat breakfast and lunch.
- Make two important phone calls.
- Go to Mark’s 3-week doctor’s appointment.
- Eat dinner.
- Go to bed.
Making both phone calls might be overly ambitious but I did make one of them already! And we’re all dressed! And thanks to our lovely friends, we have dinner all ready to go in the fridge and they even made our morning go much faster with a fun play date.
Perhaps, tomorrow, I’ll be really ambitious and add, “Do the dishes” to my to-do list. I’ll keep you updated on how that goes.
