Say a prayer for me, people. Today will be my very first day home alone with all three girls. John has been back to work for a while now and my parents’ month-long vacation to Hawaii ended early this morning. It would be an understatement to say that I am nervous/anxious. Especially since we have a few things to do today outside of the house.
The parentals did a fantastic job of keeping the house pretty clean, all while entertaining Veronica and Adri. Call me crazy, but I’m going to attempt to do the same myself. For the past week or so, I’ve been jotting down ideas for a cleaning schedule as well as for the daily routine for the girls. I’ve printed out a bazillion calendars and lists to assist with that and mainly just keeping day to day life organized.
I’ve got a few projects to tackle in the house and yard that I’m looking forward to. Vegetable garden anyone? It’ll all be a matter of balance. And a little bit of getting Juli on a schedule. That trip to the hospital this weekend really screwed up what we were beginning to establish. Now with life completely back to our new normal, hopefully we can get something that sticks for all of us.
We’re starting the day off with a follow up doctors appointment for Juli, and then gymnastics in the afternoon. My biggest worry is that it’ll be a total shit-show, which will more than likely prevent me from becoming motivated to do anything more than the absolute necessary in the future. I just need the day to go smoothly as proof that a sane life with three kids is possible.
Let’s hope that I’ve timed leaving the house with three correctly.
