Sometimes, I need to reassure myself

that I'm getting something accomplished during the days.  Everyday I feel like I blink and then its 5:00 and I have done nothing.  Today was a pretty typical day - except that Asher was with Grandma Sue.  So here is what I've done so far today and it is 1:00 PM.

2:30 AM - Alarm goes off to get up and pump.  Yes, I set my alarm per a suggestion from my cousin Milissa.  Little Brudder is now sleeping through the night (5 nights in a row!)  And when I wake up after 8-9 hours of not nursing I'm DYING.  So last night was the first night of  getting up in the middle of the night to pump.  I strapped on my new Medela Bustier which is a must have if you plan on pumping at work and read a little 50 Shades while I cranked out a good 8 ounces.

5:30 AM - Adler is up.  So I get him changed and start to feed him only to have Asher up within 5 minutes asking for chocolate milk and Cheetos.  After Adler is done eating I put him in the swing and get Asher what he needs before I start to pack Dustin's lunch and fill up his water jug.  Today I packed Asher's bag since he was going to spend the day with Grandma Sue who has been gone on vacation the last few weeks. 

6:45 AM - Dustin and Asher leave for the day.  I jump in the shower while Adler is still sleeping.  Then I do a quick run through of the house making the beds and picking up toys.  A couple of loads of laundry too.

8:30 AM - Adler and I are out the door.  Mom is sick today and needed a couple of things and so did I so Adler and I ran over to WalMart. 

10:00 - I go back to Mom and Dad's and drop Adler off with TeeTee while I run up to Once N Again to drop off the rest of my maternity clothes.  Then its back to Mom and Dad's for the Sister to dye my hair.  I eat some jalapeno chips for lunch so I hope lil guy has a strong stomach.

12:00 - I get back home.  Adler fell asleep on the way home (a whole block) so I lay him down in his bed.  I paint my toes.  We have a wedding tomorrow so I stand in front of my closet and cry.  Then I grab a maxi dress to cover my lil pooch.  I know that the halter is too long and its now too big around the waist since I wore it at 37 weeks preggo so I drag out the sewing machine and take it in and shorten the straps. 

1:00 PM - Walk by the computer.  Shit.  I haven't written a blog post in a while.  So I sit down and write about why I don't have time to blog.

The End.

I felt like this when I was on leave after I had Ryder. The time went by so fast and I always felt like I accomplished nothing. I can't imagine how it is with having two little ones!

I'm jealous Adler sleeps through the night, I wish Brock would do that! :(-I agree about the day flying by and I only have one to look after!

A shower!? Wow! What I would do for 10 minutes in the shower without having Brynlee open the curtain while she continues to hit her 3 million question mark for the day! Very productive day! :)
