I am good at this- I think i do it subconsciously, probably when because I know myself well enough to know when it is do or die- I do. I always pull it out of the fire. I leave in a matter of hours for 3 weeks in VA!
to get the picture of how i shot myself in the foot--yesterday I:
-promised my kids monkey bread for breakfast ?? (next times its a cereal day!)
-did 5 loads of laundry
-packing 4 people 3 weeks worth of stuff
-allen's promised fathers day roast which has been delayed 3 x
-a stevesongs concert- at 6pm (which was fab)
-end of school year teacher gifts (for the teachers who don't teach him? I found this a bit ironic)
-made 37 cupcakes (chocolate and vanilla at my dear sons bidding) to take to all his friends and various school staff members up till 12 wrapping and tagging summer vacation treats~
-psyching self up and learning the intricacies of train travel c/o the amtrak website with 3 small children
-designing the basement "finish" plan so allen can start on it while I am gone (still deciding one room or two, bathroom, no bathroom?) ahhhh
-trip to the post office
-return library books
-paid this months bills
-6 phone calls!
