Today was really the first day that had a huge impact. Today I needed the car. Up until today I stayed at home with Elijah during the day with no car. I was actually impressed that I wasn't bothered to have no wheels. I just kept thinking of all the money I was saving.
Being a one car family means being organized - not something my husband would say I'm good at. For me, being organized means writing to do lists.
Here is what I did today:
-took Jim to work w/ kids
-got Sara ready for school - and on the bus by 8:11am
-usual morning routine
-went to ShopKo Express to print pictures needed for Eli's preschool
-gas and washed the car
-went to library to return books
-went to local Christian radio station to claim my prize that I won :)
-returned home -made lunch
-usual afternoon cleaning
-went to Eli's preschool open house
-drove home to pick up Sara from the bus (and to quickly get changed into my work clothes)
-immediately left to pick up Jim from work w/ kids
-Jim dropped me off at work on the way home
Wow, what a day! I don't like busy days. Usually my days are much simpler!
So how was your day? busy? or simple?
My days have been busy with my hubby being gone in MN for a class. With Ethan starting school at 8am, Zachie at 10:15am, Zachie ending at 12:15pm and Ethan ending at 3pm, I spent about 80 minutes total in the car yesterday. Whew. Feel like a bus driver these days!
Dana - that sounds like my every day. I covet your home simple days. I try to get those in on Sundays now. what do you do for work in the evenings?
Denise..that's your day every day? that sounds so exhausting! I work part time at a drug store down the street.. we call those nights "wife appreciation nights" :)
Ethan's mom - what's your first name?! :) it sounds like you are a taxi driver!
