Tomorrow I will…
– Wake with a grateful heart (as always). At 6am (not so grateful).
– Get showered, dressed and make DS’s packed lunch.
– Be out of the house by 7am with two kids and their relevant bags, snacks and sports kits.
– Drop the kids at school, come home, be at my desk by 8.15am.
– Work till 12pm, have lunch, work from 12.30pm to 2.30pm, cook supper till 3.15pm.
– Drive DD to dance class the other side of town while listening to her school reading in the car. Hang around for an hour, bring her home.
– Give the children supper while talking about their day, supervise DD’s homework, bathe DS, cajole DD into the shower, read to one or both of them.
– Put the children to bed (DH is travelling).
– Get changed (maybe brush hair and put on lipstick), run downstairs, set the dining table for my book club group: set out a cheese platter, grapes, crackers, wines, soft drinks;, plates, glasses, napkins; arrange the books, think about what I’m presenting.
– Host book club… kick out book club. Tidy up after book club.
– Fall into bed exhausted about 11.30pm (I hope – but book club can go on…).
Hats off to every other mum working the same kind of schedule – or more. And the Daily Mail wonders why women are Oblivion drinkers. Oof.
