All before 1 o’clock in the afternoon.

October 22nd, 2010 - By Stephanie Precourt

Today I

boiled eggs for breakfast and did the dishes

then washed a load of cloth diapers.

And then I took Ivy and Gray to the library to pick out CDs and DVDs

and then we took Carter’s left-at-home homework folder to the school

and then we went to the grocery store to buy stuff for baked ziti (Noah keeps begging for it) and our big pancake breakfast tomorrow morning (a new Saturday tradition)

and then we dropped our groceries off at the house and drove the car over to the tire repair place to get a nail taken out (thank God for road hazard)

and then we walked home with the double stroller

and on the way Ivy fell asleep, so we left her in the stroller (she’s still asleep) and I fixed Gray some lunch and he watched his DVD

and I sat down and typed this out.

All before 1 o’clock in the afternoon.
