And it's not because I have a pre-toddler almost toddling around.
This is how my day looked.
6:45 - Leave for work. Almost late, but not quite.
7:30-2:30 - Teach kids.
2:30-3:30- Grade kids' writing while other kids help grade vocab notebooks. (it never ends...never...never...)
4:00 - Pick Dylan up from nice grandmotherly lady who is watching him until Nanny #2 starts late next week. Yep. Nanny #1 bit the dust. That's a story for another blog entry.
4:30 - Thankfully take the wrong way home and pass Rubio's. (If you're not from a state that has Rubio's, definitely get a fish taco when you're in the West!) Get a very early fish taco since I'm hungry. So fortunate since I would not have another chance to eat for 3 hours and it probably would have been a frozen burrito. Or cereal.
4:45-7:20 - Eat. Play. Try to get Dylan to eat. Try to keep Stella from hurting Dylan (also a story for later). Try to get Dylan to sleep without lots of crying.
7:20 - SUCCESS! Dylan literally cried for one minute.
7:22 - Shower so as to look presentable for kids tomorrow. Been relying on dry shampoo far too often as of late.
8:00 - Eat ice cream and drink wine and watch Revenge. (This was the original blogging slot, but wine and ice cream won out.) Trying to make sure I keep energy enough to pack Dylan for his "nanny" tomorrow since I'm single-parenting tonight.
9:00 - Wash bottles and pack Dylan's food and milk for tomorrow.
9:53 - Decide that you really do actually want to write that blog entry...before feeding Dylan again at 10.
It's 10:04 now, so I'm a little late, but this is my life (at least when I'm single-parenting). By the way, single-parenting is no joke. Thankfully, I usually only have 1 or 2 days at a time. I know many moms who have weeks at a time and a few that are always single parents. I cannot imagine how hard it is, but RESPECT ladies!
Ok 10:05. I really do plan to blog much more. It's just that I keep assigning these damn writing assignments so that my kiddos learn to write before they leave high school and then I have to grade all of the damn assignments and then I have no time beyond reading them and raising my son to write this blog! Maybe I should spend less time at my other two jobs. Just kidding.
To be continued...

(Ack! I edited a bit and now it's 10:16...ok, 23 minute blogging.)
