Ordinary Life

I keep trying to think of stuff to blog about and I don't have anything exciting.  My life is pretty ordinary for a working mom .....
  • Spending countless hours on the soccer field
  • Making lunches and dinners for kids who either don't eat them or complain the whole time they are forced to eat them
  • Trying to work with a teacher who doesn't e-mail (even though she has a school issued MAC) and isn't the most communicative
  • Trying to teach a 4 year old that she isn't in charge and that screaming will not get her what she wants
  • Painting cabinets in my free time (uh - what's that)
  • Trying to train for my half marathon that is 4 weeks away and raise a few more dollars in the process (thanks to everyone who donated - you rock!)
  • Wishing my house would clean itself
  • Listening to countless stories about a girl in Chatty's class who can speak Chinese (umm... duh - she is from China)
  • Wishing for cooler weather
  • Enjoying Sunday evening dinners on the patio (or the porch as Bia refers to it)
  • Trying to spend more time as a family ....
So that's pretty much it.  Nothing extraordinary, just our ordinary (but good) life!

I feel your pain. If only there were a few more hours in the day. A girl can dream, right?

Really Chatty? Impressed with 2 languages? Geez.

Have her read Suri's blog for what is really important.

There is never enough time in the day!


When you figure out that thing with your four year old pass it on to me. I could use the secret.

Sounds like a good life to me! Poor Chatty - if only she'd been born in China. :)

Train for a 1/2 marathon? I envy you. My running has been very sporadic lately. I'm sucking it up.

If you figure out how to get your house to clean itself, let me know!

Happy Wednesday!
