4:05 PM Turn the corner & see children exiting the bus. Made it just in time.

Really bummed for my active husband. He's not in the mood to cook, we are ordering Chinese out.

6:00 PM Quickly realize Owen's teeth are really hurting him, nothing is making him happy.
6:30 PM Dinner

7:30 PM Just a few more emails for work on the iPad while I sit in the rocker waiting for him to go to sleep.

8:46 PM Visit with Mitch and chit chat about nonsense. Did you know Colorado's high's were in the 70's. Hmph.
9:00 PM Back to work
10:00 PM Bedtime for Mitch. Follow him to ask him if he knew the stock market was tanking. I really do have my head stuck in the sand.

11:30 PM Back to work, again.
12: 45 AM Time to go to bed
12:46 AM While exhausted by my crazy life it is a beautiful life & I am happier now than I have ever been. Must document this full day where I felt just a little like an imperfectly perfect superwoman.
1:03 AM Decide this post needs a picture. Pull one from our impromptu play in the sprinkler yesterday.
1:17 AM Really time to go to bed before I rinse, wash & repeat in a few hours.
