A Saturday

  • Stumble out to the front room...fighting sleep to reach the much needed caffeine and to fix breakfast for kids (two of which have been up since before the sun)
  • Getting 5 human beings ready to run errands and arguing with two of them who don't want to go
  • Drop off gun and sunglasses to Dad at work because he forgot them
  • Grocery store with 4 kids and a two page list...fully confirming the need to those apple strudels I picked up at the entrance as I try to catch all the "stuff" the little boys tried to sneak in throughout the store (which included two kids books, toothpaste, chips, and oddly enough hand sanitizer)
  • Home and unloading of suburban full of groceries while arguing with the teenagers to move faster than one bag every 5 minutes and to stop Super Wy from twirling with his open drink on the lawn AND Holy Terror from attacking people with the loose branch he found
  • Drama Queen's friend over for science fair preparations where they had to "test" the experiment in the backyard patio, thereby spewing globbing baking soda and vinegar all over the glass top where it dried to a nice hard cement texture
  • Nap time for little boys and Mommy's only 30 minutes of quiet
  • House cleaning a.k.a General duty by Mommy for kids to pick up their things strewn all over the house
  • Backyard BBQ preparations for Hubby and his fishing buddies to cook up recent victories and share fishing stories
  • Fighting the hose away from Holy Terror when he was spraying Daddy's friends
  • Catching Holy Terror as he ran through the house unwinding blue and red party streamers he found in hall closet
  • Collapsing into bed and leaving Hubby and friends outside laughing and talking, daughter and her friend (who was only supposed to stay for 3 hours but ended up spending the night) giggling in the front room, and my son who was pissed because he had to let the girls alone and go draw in his room, and two boys who were passed out in their beds from a full day's toddler work
Just another Saturday at the Norris house.
