didn't get a thing done today.....

I totally am having those days where at the end of the night you are EXHAUSTED but feel like you got nothing done.... I was in the shower, at 5PM, discouraged about just that...getting nothing done. I started trying to run down the list of what I did all day so I could figure out why I never get things crossed off my list... there are piles everywhere, dishes in the sink.....

*I got up at 7 after not sleeping AGAIN, even with the sleeping pills.
*Got two kids up
*Got them both dressed
*Fed them both
*Packed 2 backpack
*Packed one lunch
*Found 4 shoes
*Found Frog costume since Olivia was sick and missed Noahs Ark day last week
*Took pictures of said frog outside
*Drove both girls to school
*Made breakfast
*Did 2 loads of laundry
*Did dinner dishes from last night
*Checked email
*Cleaned living room enough so I could sit on the couch and eat cold breakfast I had made half hour earlier
*Watched 10 minutes of TV
*Paid bills
*Got to school to do room mom duties at pick up time
*Went to courthouse with crying child to make sure my husband does not get arrested on Nov 16th for subpoena that was issued yesterday (that's another blog entry!)
*Got all the way to the courthouse door and was told I could not bring my cell phone in....walked all the way back to car to THROW phone in the front seat.
*Went back to courthouse
*Gave proof of immunizations for our freakin dog to lady so husband does not get arrested
*Explained to still crying child why we WERE NOT asking the guy at the desk for a sucker (the answer... I was pissed off he made me walk back to the car with my phone and crying child)
*Went to vet to get money back for overcharge on immunizations
*Sneezed and peed... my pants
*Went to post office
*Return carpet samples
*Got groceries
*Kept my cool while Olivias hid in every available location at grocery store
*Went to bank
*Unloaded car
*Started wash as I only have one pair of maternity jeans and they had been peed in.... its not funny!
*Made lunch for me and my child
*Helped Olivia with crafts

*Picked up Madison from school
*Was informed she had a "pee infection"
*Called doctor
*Wondered if maybe I have a pee infection
*Remembered I was 30 weeks pregnant ( had forgot all day!)
*Started homework
*Had to explain why all the homework was going to be done again because it was so messy
*Got in a "fight" with a loan officer over the phone about car loan
*Did dishes while arguing with loan officer Called father-in-law to verify that the loan officer was smoking crack and I was right
*Was assured of crack smoking being done by loan officer by wise father-in-law
*Ordered school pictures online
*Picked laminae and tiles for a non paying design job
*Called to find a place to hold a moms night out for MOPS( I think the bar is the best answer!)
*Saw husband arrive
*Husband side swiped by stories of "pee infections" and nasty foods
*Took shower
*Helped Olivia memorize her Awana verse while I was in the shower.
*Signed awana book with eyeliner
*Started dinner
*Tried to update husband on all activities for the night while stirring food and holding up to small towel around huge belly
*Worried about cars driving by that could see me in the front window, stressed and barley covered.
*Decided if they did see it they would never look in my windows again when they drove by
*Finished getting ready
*Swallowed Dinner
*Took TUMS
*Went to Arbonne party
*Realized I forgot to put Mascara on when getting ready
*About died when I remembered taking to woman about how great the mascara is.
*Wondered why she bought the mascara when my eyelashes are not even visible tonight.
*Packed lunches for tomorrow
*Remembered no one was going to school tomorrow
*Ran throw tomorrow with hubby as he brushed his teeth
*Called room mom about Halloween Party
*Went and kissed kids in bed
*Blogged about not understanding why I can not get anything done.

If you can figure out how I am not managing my time well PLEASE let me know. I think I am going to have to cut out peeing and eating!

Nikki, I laughed so hard at this list that I was crying!! I think you could enter this to some magazines and get some money for it - then you could use the money to hire a personal assistant!
Love you~

You are a riot Nicki - I got your blog forwarded to me from your mother to my mother, so I knew it was worth reading! And how I relate...that is a recap of 90% of my days too lady :) Elizabeth (Crowe)

This sounds very similar to my days lately. Peeing and all. =) Miss you at Bible Study, although your days seem full enough without one other place to go. We should try and get the girls together soon to play!

Andrea said...

HILARIOUS! I should make a list like this, so everyone knows why I cry in the shower after a long day of "getting nothing done".

Just catching up on blogs I enjoy reading, and yours is one of them. This was a priceless entry. I loved the part about signing the AWANA book with eyeliner, since I just signed my daughters "cubbies" book the other day...I had a pen, but an eyeliner would definitely work. :)

HOW in the WORLD, did you remember all of this? Did you have a notepad, jotting down each incident....when I was raising kids, each minute was a blur into the next. I didn't think that i ever had time to pee or consider yourself fortunate.....that you were able to pee and shower AND that you remembered!!! This was WAY FUNNY!

I agree about the courthouse thing. I had to carry a kid IN THE SNOW and go back to my car and throw the phone in the car. I was VERY PO'ed!
