Who's On First?

This year has become a bit more complicated with the wee one's schedules. But hey, I'm the one who was so busy in college I had color coded markers to help me remember where I was supposed to be when in my calendar. And it worked!

MWTh - I work. Mondays I go to the office, and generally I work from home on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

M-F - Little Miss goes to preschool on the bus in the mornings.

M-F - Mister Man goes to preschool on the bus in the afternoons.

MW - Little Miss goes to daycare after preschool, and the bus drops her off there.

MWTh - Mister Man goes to the "kingergarten" program at daycare in the morning and gets on the bus from there.

Last week, Little Miss was sick all week and we kept her home. My mom was a huge help and did babysitting for me when I was working, which made life so much easier.

So someone please explain to me why I was sitting on the front porch on Thursday at 12:15 while my mom was on a walk with Little Miss (she was feeling a bit better then) waiting for Mister Man's bus.

Seriously. I even called my mom to ask where she was and why she was still walking and not home waiting for Mister Man's bus. Oh. Yeah. I'd dropped him off at daycare at 9am, and the bus was coming to daycare around 12:30 or so to take him to preschool. No bus.

And I wonder why I have them signed up only for swim lessons on Saturday mornings and no other extra curricular activities at the moment.

All I can say is I feel your pain. I can't make a move anymore without consulting my dayrunner. Clearly, my brain can't be relied upon anymore to keep up with 1 schedule, much less the other 3 individual schedules in this house.

WOW - craziness - like my house!

Good luck with your schedule - take care - Kellan

Yup, I hate to admit that I'm right there with you!

This post made my mind spin. Ugh, I don't know how you do it!

LOL sounds like me! I finally got a PDA phone so that I can keep a calendar updated and have it use alarms to tell me when to do something! Thanks for stopping by my blog last week when I was the featured blogger, I am STILL trying to catch up on all the comments :)

Angie - That's my problem. I've got everything in my head instead of on the calendar.... Maybe I ought to start writing more things down. Like the fundraiser I'm going to tomorrow. Hmmm... almost forgot about that one!

Kellan - Isn't everyone's house chaos like this once children are introduced to the mix?

Cookie - Apparently we're not alone. I'm not sure if that makes me feel better or not!

Shelly - Ummm, necessity? If there's another option, let me know!

Trish - Welcome! I can imagine that it has to take a lot to go back and revisit! I may have to look into a PDA phone. In two years when my contract expires and I go phone shopping again. That is a good idea though!
