Is tired. She got up to get kids out the door then worked for 20 minutes, got a quick shower, dressed (in shorts that... mostly... fit), then bathed the baby and dressed her. Then they left for the doctor's office for Lynae's check-up. Lynae is 50% for weight, 50% head, and between 75 and 90% for height. She weighs 9 lbs 9 oz (funny for the 9.9.09 baby!) and is 22.5" long.

From there they went to SAM's club for drinks and a few other essentials that are cheaper bought in bulk. Then she went home to get the meltables out of the car. Yes, it's still 99 degrees with the heat index here which means the car is much closer to 120 when it's closed up.

Up to the church for lunch with her husband then to Wal-Mart for milk, babyfood, and some fresh veggies that she didn't want in bulk. Home to unload then to the school to pick up the kids. Home to a spring because there are 5 children.

She did convince the 5 yr old that it's fun to take sheets off of beds. Now there are 4 naked beds. If only she could convince him it's fun to put clean ones on too. She also has 4 baskets of laundry that have been washed in the last 24 hours and the washer and dryer are both full. There's a load of sheets still waiting to be washed and clothes in her hamper. But every dresser drawer in the kids' rooms is empty.

Meredith got a call from a friend on the way home that she'd made extra soup- one of the friend's family favorites- and wanted to bring us supper or have Mike go pick it up after work. Either way, she is grateful to this friend for thinking of them. It's wonderful how the Body of Christ cares for one another.

So now sh is off to get the dining room table cleared of 'school debris' while her alter-ego types this blog post. Because everyone knows she isn't blogging with her 2 minutes of free time. No, that would be like resting. And today isn't really a good day for that. Tomorrow, however, she plans to spend the day at the house unburying it from 5 weeks of neglect. Yes, that's the plan. Or so she thinks.
