My week looked like this. I can’t even make this stuff up.

FRIDAY-get groceries in the morning. Have mother’s group at my place at 1.
SATURDAY-farmers market day. Blogging do at night.
SUNDAY-SWEET FUCK ALL.
In real life some weeks just have lots of stuff on. And when most of it is fun stuff you don’t want to say no. In these weeks you just try to make sure everyone has clean undies and there is milk in the fridge. At least one of the dinners on these weeks usually come out of a drive thru window or are home delivered. There will be tears. Maybe from the tired kids or maybe even from yourself. The dog won’t get as many walks as she’s used to. Coffee is an essential.
But next week is just around the corner. And it’s looking far more calm (except for Willow’s ballet concert but I can’t even go there today) and there is even a day with no plans at all and one with only swimming.
I think I’ll fold the mountain of washing on the couch then.
I’m joining in with Picklebums for Real Life Wednesday (on Thursday because of mega week lol).
What sort of real life bizzo is happening at your place?
