seriously – i am going non-stop five days a week. i now appreciate weekends like i never appreciated them before!
and don’t ask me about current events – as of the beginning of the school year, i am now extremely out of touch with the rest of the world.
and the only way i get anything done for the before/after school tasks is to do them FAST and to really multi-task. i hate making lunches but i’m becoming a pro. i even have a system. chaeli goes up stairs to change, go to the washroom and wash her hands – by the time she is done, i’m pretty much done both hers and my lunches for the next day.
also, with the two days i come home for lunch to let hobbes out, i now spend 20 minutes cleaning just so i don’t have to do it on the weekend.
