Let's just say my Wednesday isn't starting out so well.
First, I'm out of coffee!!!!! Then my youngest son forgot his cleats at the middle school yesterday where he has football practice. Problem is, he goes to the junior high school. And his game is at the junior high today. Grrrr, that means I have to pick him up from school and bring him to the middle school and beg someone to open the mud room for him. Then we have to race back to the junior high to make his game. He's in total freak out mode, and his brother don't help as they say, "Oh, dude, good luck with that. They won't let you back in the mud room once the coaches are gone." I could kill them. They are so NOT helping right now. So youngest son is like, "Great. My last game of the season and I won't get to play." Ugh. I had to convince him to let me pick him up and at least try to get his cleats. There has to be someone at that school other than the coaches who have a flipping key!!!!
After a huge struggle, I finally get them off to school only to have oldest child who just drove himself to school tell me he's riding on fumes so I need to fill the tank up when I get home. (that's if he doesn't run out of gas somewhere, which would be my luck today!) And not to mention, um hello, I will be busy picking up youngest and getting cleats and attending a game in the cold temps and pelting rain we are supposed to get today! (oh, joy!)
Now it's time to wake up Diva and get her in the shower (quickly) as I still have to get ready for the stupid dentist. Then before I pick up son number 3, I still have errands to run, phone calls to make, and hello...dinner in there somewhere! Then the game (if we're successful with the cleats) and then homework, etc, etc, etc!
And I'm supposed to write when????
Honestly, some days I just wonder how we are supposed to be everything to everyone every day! That's life I guess. Most days I love it...today, not so much!
How do you cope with it all? When do you write? What kinds of distractions throw you off your game? Inquiring minds want to know.
