Setting up my Daily Schedule

This week's daily schedule is easy: 6am - 7am - Up, shower, make breakfast 7am - 5:30 pm - Babysitting for Mr. B 5:30 - 6:30 - Recovering from babysitting for Mr. B 6:30 - 7:30 - Dinner, clean-up 7:30 - 9:30 - Recovering the house from Mr. B 9:30 - 10:30 - Try to stay awake 11:00 pm - Go to bed See? Easy-peasy. Mr. B's "other" babysitter is taking the week off to have Spring Break free with her family. I can't blame her. It's difficult to spend time with your kids when you have six other kids under 5 years old clamoring for your attention. Unfortunately, our weather is not going to cooperate. Snow(!) on Monday and cold (40's and 50's) for the rest of the week...sigh sigh sigh. It's so much easier to babysit when Mr. B can spend his time outside riding his tricycle or playing in the sandbox! But... I can do this :) And I'm fortunate to have the opportunity to do this! Let's not forget where the priorities are here!

Much as I love my grandbaby I know that 5 full days in a row and I'd be dead! Perhaps an adult beverage should be incorporated into your schedule.....after 5:30pm of course!

Yes. I think I'm getting the feeling too. Keeping up with a five year old that wants to do EVERYTHING is for people younger than I am. Love her to death but.............

And I'm only visiting.
