I took yesterday off bc DH was crazy busy with election stuff from 6 am to 9 pm and it just made life easier for him not to drag the 4 yo (aka the tornado) along.
got the big kids on the bus, voted at 7 am, -- the rest of the day -
I did one sink of dishes, and five loads of wash. I got the two boys winter/summer wardrobes sorted out and bagged the little one's stuff for sal val and the big one's stuff (not much - his wardrobe is bare bones) bagged for the little one.
and that's ALL! in 13 hours! cereal for breakfast, pb toast for lunch, Spaghetti for dinner, all kids in bed by 8. and the dishes are stacked like it's been three days...(and none of the laundry got put away... And i was SPENT!
I swear i can get more done in an evening after work!
