On Monday, my life as I have known it for over 5 years now, is going to change. All three of my toddlers will be going to school. My 5-year-old starts kindergarten and the 4 and 3-year-old girls actually started preschool last Monday. I really don’t know what I am going to do with myself from 8-11:30 without one of my 3 mini-monsters in my presence.
Let me think about that….
Come back home and go back to sleep. But that just seems like a waste of such a valuable few hours. Not to mention that once I am up…I am up.
Take a shower and get ready in a timely manner. With 3 toddlers I am lucky to even get a shower let alone have the chance to shave my legs (and various other parts), put real make-up on (instead of just some sloppy brazed mascara), DO MY HAIR (I recently cut my hair that was past the middle of my back, to now the nape of my neck). This was to avoid the “hair piled in a messy bun” look that I was starting to
trademark use EVERYDAY.
Blog. This is a given. I will be able to complete a thought without being interrupted 300 times. That’s 100 times per child and no I am not kidding. Between them and the horribly slow internet, I am surprised I am able to get any blogging done at all.
Watch TV. Nah, I’d really rather blog. Although I have found that I do enjoy my morning cup of Joe while watching some “Good Morning America”. And usually this isn’t possible because of course the minis want to watch the 50th re-run of “The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse”. It’s truly sad that I have watched so many of their shows that I now just sing the tunes even when the television isn’t even on.
Workout. This is already on my list. Monday starts my body transformation. Juicing and exercise which I will be blogging all about my
disasters failures bitching about progress and sharing my results with you. If you missed the first part of my “herb uses” you can read about it here.
Sit in silence and read. I have a book that I literally started last year on a family vacation and I am still in the process of reading it. Probably because most of what I read these days is blogs. But maybe without all the interruptions I will actually have time to read a book and the blogs.
Make a phone-call. Have you ever tried to talk on the phone with 3 toddlers? I actually had a lady put me on hold one day because the sounds of my minis in the background noise, was too noisy for her. No kidding.
Go to the bathroom without anyone knocking on the door. If you are a parent, there is no explanation needed here. If you aren’t a parent, there is still no explanation needed.
Now there will be days that my husband will be off…
**rethinks writing anything about what will be happening there**
Needless to say I just want to enjoy this time that I have never experienced in over 5 years. Since moving into this house…I have never had any time to myself in the house. There was one day my husband attempted to take the kids to the park to give me a break…only he came home 15 minutes later because it started to pour rain. I think I cried a little.
I am sure the first day I will be confused and a little sad…..oh who am I kidding!
