So, this was my day yesterday:

5:50 awake and dressed to go to the gym

6:00-7:00 elliptical trainer at the gym (watched a great talk by Elder L. Tom Perry on the BYU channel)

7:00-7:25 weights (Aren't you proud of me for excercising so well?!!!)
Race back home

7:30-7:50 family scriptures and prayer

7:50-8:30 get myself dressed and ready, and get the 4 little girls bathed, dressed and ready

8:30 snarf yogurt & fruit for breakfast

8:35 drive to string camp

8:45-1:30 teach at string camp
Race back home

1:40 finally nurse my baby while preparing for an enrichment class I forgot I had to teach!

2:45 pick kids up from school
Race back home

3:00-4:30 teach violin lessons

4:30-4:45 do some dishes, clean up and throw some laundry in the washing machine

4:45-6:00 take Akayla to piano lessons, Corina to library, and run errands
Race back home

6:15 finish enrichment class preparations, give instructions to Akayla and Corina for dinner, and drive off

6:30-9:00 enrichment meeting -- my class went great!
Race back home

9:15 finally nurse my baby (string camp may just help me wean Elli!) and read to my poor neglected kids!

9:30 prepare for tomorrow's string classes and read my scriptures

10:30 roll into bed

Thank heavens string camp is only two weeks long........we all may just go insane! I have a new respect for moms who have to work. It is very hard to be busy all day and have to come home to a wrecked house that I have to clean and a dinner I have to prepare. We are all anxious for it to be all done!

Good things:
Elli is learning to like Genelle
3 days down/7 days to go!
My supportive family (including my little sister)

I have a love/hate relationship for days like those. I love that time flies by, I hate that I never seem to accomplish all that was needed. I will have plenty of those days in the next 2 weeks when Livvie starts her summer program. Yeah/Yikes

Whoa! That was some day! It sounds like we will be saying it was SOME TWO WEEKS soon. Well don't tire yourself out too much... That's pretty crazy that you were able to fit so much into one day. YIKES!!!

Genelle said...

...WoW! And I thought I had busy days! Well, you know, I kind of get a taste of what it's like to have kids while babysitting the little ones, but I could NEVER imagine having 7 kids. Ang, you are my hero!
(I'm glad Elli is starting to like me too!)

I have a love/hate relationship with those days, too. I love to be busy and I love to get so much done, but I hate the guilt and neglect feelings! (why am I on the computer!) But I think thats why we have Sunday!

Ang, I can't believe I've missed so many of your posts. I guess I assumed you weren't going to blog while you were doing string camp. Sorry for the neglect. I'm so proud of you for getting up early to exercise! I wish I could do that!

Wow - just READING about your day makes me tired!! I'm amazed you still found time to squeeze in Exercise AND scripture study!

Go go girl! :o)
