Is that alll there is?

Did you ever have one of those days when you:

  • Get up early to shower and dress
  • Wake your husband so he is not late for work
  • Wake your kid(s) up for school
  • Make sure your kid(s) get dressed, hair brushed, etc.
  • Make breakfast for your kid(s)
  • Feed the dog
  • Pack lunch for kid(s)
  • Put in a load of laundry
  • Take kid(s) to the bus stop
  • Take something out of the freezer to cook for dinner
  • Go to work
  • Work all day
  • Scrounge something for lunch
  • Eat while working
  • Drive kid(s) to and from after school activities
  • Cook dinner
  • Do dishes and clean up the kitchen
  • Fold a load of laundry
  • Make sure kid's backpack is ready for the next day at school
  • Sign permission slips
  • Write check to the PTA for fundraiser
  • Make sure kid(s) bathe, get pajamas on, get into bed
  • Pay bills
  • Return phone call from your mother-in-law
  • Sit down on the couch and fall asleep 10 minutes into your favorite show
  • Drag yourself up to bed
  • Set alarm to start all over tomorrow
  • Lay in bed and think just before you fall back to sleep "is that all there is to my life?"

(Of course not every day is like that at all, but sometimes it feels that way.)
