I’m gonna be honest, it’s been hard to keep up with the blogging for the past several months. I do a lot of one-day-a-week blogging where I publish posts for future days. Now that school has started, I can barely keep up with that.
I fear we are a bit overscheduled.
Monday: each girl has a music lesson during school, Phoebe has her violin duo after school and then after an hour break the three of us go to Mother-Daughter Hip Hop.
Tuesday: Lolly has gymnastics and Phoebe has sewing class. I spend an hour and a half on the train taking Phoebe to sewing, picking up Lolly, then picking up Phoebe before we head home around 6
Wednesday: Right after school the three of us go to Central Park for some circuit training. Usually we run/walk for about 15 minutes, then do some side gallops along the mall, go up and down the stairs at Bethesda Fountain and then run/walk some more. After that Lolly has flute ensemble.
Thursday: Each girl has a private lesson during school. (I include this detail so that you can picture 3 backpacks and two instruments being schlepped along with wildcards: umbrellas, groceries, shopping bags, mail for the post office) Is our free day to do things like orthodontist appointments, errands, playdates or vegging at home.
Friday: Phoebe has tap class.
You’d think I would have some free time during school hours (certainly NOT in the afternoon), but instead my time is filled up with auditions, rehearsals for my show (are you coming?), PTA responsibilities (I have more this year), cooking (often I make dinner ahead of time now that I have a handy dandy meal plan), visiting teaching, lunch with a friend, and running.
Jason has been sick now for 17 days, tonight his fever is 100 degrees and his cough is something to behold. Finally he is helping out with some of his chores again, but for a while there I was go – go – go! Ok, let’s face it, I still am….which brings me back to the beginning. Fitting the blogging in has been a challenge, but I am trying to keep afloat!
