Thinking Day

So, this morning was not our typical try to sleep in while the kids watch cartoons in the next room kind of morning. First, I got up late 0700 - not late you say? My alarm went off at 0500, but I decided I wasn't ready, so I shut it off and went back to sleep.

Bad decision. I had a beef roast to boil and bake, a black bean spread to be made and used to frost some flat bread, 10 cups of rice to make, 10 passports to finish, all the while trying to get a shower, get dressed, etc., get 3 kids moving and doing the same to get on the road by 1000 to pick up 2 girls to arrive at our destination by 1045. Didn't happen quite like that.

Thankfully, Jesse's TDY didn't happen as planned and he was back last night, awaiting the new flight schedule. He was such a sweetheart this morning and helped the kids get ready, me get packed and on my way. Even with the extra help, I didn't get on the road until 1045.

It's 10:26 P.M. and I just finished another email for cub scouts and made a list for the Blue and Gold tomorrow afternoon...*deep breath*

I'll try to get some pics up from Thinking Day tomorrow and maybe even the Blue and Gold...really.
