A Day in the Life-Wednesday

6AM Up and out of bed. Came downstairs to make coffee, have some quiet time and do some work.

7AM Dennis brought Elyse down. What a sight she is with her messy hair and PJs!

7:30 Dennis left for work. Elyse and I ate some breakfast and watched a little Today show.

8:30 We went upstairs to do a few chores. We rewashed a load of laundry because I overfilled it and it didn't really get clean (I usually never do this...I'm serious). We went and folded some laundry. Elyse got really mad when I wouldn't give her all the hangers to play with!

Elyse then discovered the nose snot-getter-thing and had to go around the room cleaning everyone's nose including her monkey, mama, baby, and the carrot purse.

9:15 I put Elyse down for an early nap. I took a shower. Then I made a plane reservation to visit St. Louis at the end of April. I found a great deal and it will be a lot of fun!

10 AM I got a little more work done. Elyse woke up and we had a snack.

10:30 Gathered our things and headed off to "Hop Skip and a Jump" to meet the mom's club. We had a great time. Elyse loved exploring the place and I loved chatting with some other moms. (And I promise I do not talk on the phone while driving as she is imitating in the above picture).

12:15 Left "Hop Skip and a Jump" and headed off to the grocery store to pick up a few things. I decided to try out this "car" cart. It was much more difficult to maneuver than I expected! Elyse LOVED driving. She also got a sticker from the bagger. Yipee!!

1 PM Finally back home. We were both starving. First though, we noticed a package for Elyse on the front porch. She got a copy of Sandra Day O'Connor's new book from her Uncle Bryan. (Bryan was able to meet her last week!) We each had a yummy sandwich.

2:00 I put Elyse down for a nap. I prepared a few things for dinner and then I had to take a nap too. I fell asleep on the couch and didn't wake up until Dennis came home around four!

4:30 Made dinner, talked to Dana on the phone.

5:00 Ate dinner. It really wasn't very good but I guess they can't all be. I tried this recipe for a "Bourbon Beef Noodle Bowl." I think I added too much water or something because it was too diluted. Elyse loved the noodles.

6:00 Cleaned up the house while Dennis gave Elyse her bath.

7:00 Met with Realtor. I think we are going to use this guy. He comes highly recommended. We were not thrilled with the numbers but we expected them.

7:30 Plugged numbers and ordered a "St. Joseph" figurine to bury in the ground outside our house. Apparently he is supposed to help sell a house.

8:30 Watched "Zach and Miri Make a Porno" with Dennis. Funny but I wouldn't recommend it to a friend. It was good time to spend together.

10 PM Stress out over the sale of our house. Dennis and I go through all the reasons why we will be fine. (I'm stressing much more than him). I make a promise to him not to plug any more numbers or do any searches online. It is out of my control now!

10:51 Blogging. It is past my bedtime and as soon as I upload these pictures I am going to bed! Good night!

I'm awe-inspired at your early risings. I don't roll out until I absolutely have to. Re the house - go back to your inspirational blog entries because I'm sure you have one about letting go (control). You can do it!

I can TOTALLY relate to your stress about the house since we are in the same boat. But, it really does no good, and I'm finally realizing that. Hang in there!!

(Thanks for reminding me I need to get a St. Joseph too!)
