A friend of mine asked that question of ME last week. ha. Short answer: I don’t know. It just gets done.
Longer answer: But by the grace of God. By the skin of my teeth and by being in a constant state of chaos. Controlled chaos, mind you….but chaos. And my girlfriends…..they are all right there with me whether they stay at home or work outside the home, it’s a constant go…go…go..gooooooo.
Case in point:
This morning, up at 4:30 to hit the 5:15 a.m. Spin class. Crazy. yes, I know. But it’s only twice a week and I just can’t make the p.m. classes. So. Up and at ’em.
Come home, get kids going, shower, make breakfast and lunch, decide on dinner and out the door at 7:15.
Work. or the easiest part of my day…if you call 50 patients between 8 and 4 (who the HECK does our scheduling anyway?!?!?! )…fortunately, I enjoy my patients and co-workers so it makes the day a little easier.
Lunch will be post office, making phone calls to the insurance company (ridic to the Nth degree of how much I am fighting them for reimbursement. of money I am due. for a product I have already paid for. super close to hollering fraud. super. close) and any other personal errands I can squeeze in the hour.
Off at 4:30, taxi duty, dinner prep and then the girls and I will sit down to catch up on Once Upon a Time–since they were way too tired on Sunday.
So. There. That’s how I do it. Just like everyone else. Carry on, people. Carry on!
My view from the track for the next few months…BUT….it’s guaranteed cardio, so there’s that!
‘Tis the last week of summer for us and I’m taking off Wed-Fri to chill and occupy the children. Except that I panicked at the thought of the next 4 months being utterly sucked up by soccer and cheer practice/games and any opportunity of any travel outside of games is POOF, gone, so I decided to make an somewhat-impromptu visit to see my girlfriend in Atlanta. Taking my girls, of course. (the boys aren’t interested…they are too cool for that, besides her boys won’t be there…)
what bored soccer players do at cheer practice…
It will be a busy few days, because that’s how I roll….all busy and hectic and such…it’s black and white with me sometimes–ok mostly. Balls to the wall busy or slug.
Anyway, possibly a day trip to Gainesville to see my pregnant friend before she enters the world of 4 kiddos, birthday skateboard shopping for our almost 15-year-old! WHhAaTt?!??!?! Meet the teachers. Pick up middle schooler’s schedule/locker/etc.
But first….let me get my arse off the chair and get ready to GO VOTE!
Have a great day and hopefully will have some fun stuff for you at the end of the week!
