I Need a Break and the Day Isn't Half Over

Thirteen Things I Have To Do Today (crossed off things done)

1. Take van into mechanic. This is a new mechanic, a friend of mine has known since high school. He seems nice, and his office is a mess, always a good sign to me that he is good at what he does.

2. arrange rental car that doesn't cost an arm and a leg (Bad planning on my part, everyone wants to rent a car for the upcoming weekend. Leave it to me to try to rent a car on the busiest weekend of the year, Memorial Day Weekend! I ended up with a PT Cruiser, too expensive, but beggars can't be choosers.

3. Figure out what to do when I realize I left the car seat in the van and the van is already up on the lift at the mechanic's shop.

4. Call a friend and borrow her ancient booster seat, the one with no back.

5. Call my in laws to borrow their newer seat.

6. Drive to my friend's house to pick up the older seat. She lives close to me, and my in laws live 20 minutes away. I need the car seat from my friend to get to my in laws, where I can borrow the other seat.

7. Take oldest daughter to band lesson. All kids come with. We can hang out in the lobby area, the kids play and I chat with a friend.

8. Take the kids to in law's house again, drop the younger two off for babysitting.

9. Take oldest daughter to her doctor's appointment. She really likes him and has been seeing him since she was in the 4th grade. I like him, too.

10. Stop at AM/PM for our traditional snack afterwards. I usually get a Kit Kat and a Pepsi, or guacamole chips. RIght now, though, with my mouth being sore, I might just forgo the snack.

11. pick up kids from in laws after appointment

12. drive to grocery store to get milk and a few other odds and ends. Pray the kids can handle the trip and that it will be done quickly.

13.finish this T-13. and figure out something for dinner. J is going to take JBear to the Indiana Jones movie, so the girls and I will have a nice "girl's night" while they are gone. Maybe we will get pizza!

*I also need to get my house cleaned since a friend of mine is coming to visit...hoping that will happen this evening.

T, who is tired already, just looking at the list

I'm so glad mine have outgrown the car seats. I ended up with three of them though I only needed one at a time because I kept forgetting in one car or another.

Sounds busy. But, then, I like busy with a little not busy thrown in.
