I will never learn!

Our flight leaves at 7:00 am on Thursday morning...I need to do laundry, go to the grocery store, get the girls stuff together , schedules, car pools arranged, clothes for school, clean up the guest room and put on fresh sheets for my parents, get the puppy stuff together, etc...

Here is what I did today. Up this morning, got the big girls off to school, answered some email, threw on "play" clothes head to Target. But, first I had to meet my uncle to give him hand me downs from Lulu for my niece in Virgina. Did I mention, I went through Lulu's closet in a matter of minutes to get some more things together to send down. The off to Target, just to get furniture for our deck. I went for this, came home with this....

We went for four club chairs. After a few other odds and ends I head to the check out. Did I ever consider how I was going to transport two HUGE boxes home 20 miles away? NO, of course I didn't!!! But, don't fret! As I was driving to the front of the store I saw one of my very best girl friends getting out of her very roomy mini van! So, I tracked her down in the store and she delivered the other box this afternoon! What would I have done if I didn't run into her?

Lulu stayed with MBM this morning, thank God, too or I would have had to tied her to the roof. When I got home we had lunch. I was itching to get the screens in the porch. Did that! Christened the porch with a Diet Coke sitting on the floor in the middle of the empty porch by myself! And loved every second of it!

The big girls came home from school, carpooled to CCD, home to clean up and continue painting the powder room. Dinner, thanks to MBM, homework, baths, bedtime and finish the powder room!

MBM and I both tackling the laundry. If we keep it going all night we should have it all done before we leave on Thursday! My Lord how does that happen?

Will I ever learn to prioritize?

When you learn will you teach me??? I think it should be a course in school, don't you?

I think the wrought iron set is lovely but I really like what you brought home, it looks wonderfully comfortable! I could certainly benefit from some prioritizing lessons, myself!

I am an infamous procrastinator when it comes to preparing for a trip. I'm not sure how it happens but it never fails that I'm up into the wee hours of the morning before we leave on vacation and I'm running around like a mad woman while we're trying to leave the house.

The love the furniture!!!

If only they taught you how to prioritize before having children.

Love the new outdoor furniture!!

I can't prioritize either. I'm always up half the night before we leave for a trip. Even when I start laying stuff out a week ahead of time, it's still down to the wire.

Your new furniture looks lovely.
