Juggling Act

I'm up before the crack of dawn because we gotta get movin' today.  So much to do with little ones.  The morning will start of with a 9am T-ball game for my son.  My hubby will take him to the game while I get the little one up, fed, and dressed for the day. If there is any time before we leave the house, I will try to straighten it because I won't have time before the sitter comes to watch the kids so that Hubby and I can go out for our date night.

The Bug and I will go to the field where my hubby and I will do the hand off for swim lessons. He will take The Bug to swim lessons and I will stay and finish out the T-ball game with my son.  After it's done, he and I will go to the swim center where I will change my clothes to get ready for a bridal shower that I am attending this afternoon.  Then I will hand off my son to my husband after the little one's swim lessons, and then I'm rolling out for a bridal shower that's scheduled to be 4 1/2 hours long and that I'll still be late for because even with all the juggling, we can't do that hand-off any earlier because of the time of my Buggy's swim lesson.  Whew! That's a lot of juggling in a short amount of time. I will be on the road by the time my husband wrangles the kids and gets them home. I'll get home maybe 30 minutes before the babysitter arrives, in which time I will greet my family and then continue to organize the house so that she doesn't think that we live in a pit.

I feel like I'm running on empty. My husband was gone most of last week for a business trip. He's home and I feel like we haven't had 2 seconds to spend together due to trying to organize our plans for the weekend.  I'm still recuperating from not having him home for a week. I'm sleep-deprived and exhausted. He's still trying to get over his jet lag and get back in the rhythm of being home. Date night will be a relief and purposefully scheduled so that we can have some time together.  It's the time between now and date night that's going to be a juggling act.
