Running Ragged

I ran a marathon today. Not literally, and mostly from my car, and also way more than the customary 26.2 miles.

I have no idea how Totally Tebbs does this on a regular basis.

7:15 - Get Ty in wheelchair
7:30 - Collapse back into bed
8:30 - help Michelle get off to school. Seriously consider collapsing back into bed. Ha!
9:00 - Mr. O drops girls off at school in the van so I can use his more fuel efficient car for my day of driving all over creation
9:15 - Get held phone hostage while trying to take a much needed shower. End up skipping it
10:00 - check Spielberg out of school, drive across town to orthodontist (repair broken wire)
10:45 - check S~ back into school
11:00 - Shower! AND wash hair (complete miracle as there hasn't been a second to do it this week)
12:15 - go to pic up Ellie, realize her car seat is still in my van at Mr. O's place of work and drive across town to get it (beg friend to hang out with Ellie until I get there)
1:30 - drive back across town to attend school meeting (in time for it to be over)
2:00 - get text from school asking if Ty can stay after for a party (but, of course!)
2:15 - necessitates a drive back across town to get wheelchair van
3:00 - visit with friend and pick daughters up from play date
3:30 - pick up Ty from high school (chat with teacher)
3:50 - take Ty home, get him out of the chair, feed him, talk for a minute
4:00 - take Michelle to dance, get as far as around the block before we realize she's dressed for the wrong dance class, drive home, change
4:15 - drive across town and drop Michelle off at dance
4:45 - take new (to me) phone to Sprint store and spend the next 2 1/2 hours watching them try to get it operational and switch my info over
7:15 - Eureka! Success, phone works. Finally!
7:20 - pick up Michelle from dance, drive across town back home
8:00 - detour for onion rings and a Oreo shake (guess I am human, after all)
8:30 - home, at last (daughter must teach me new dance moves)
9:00 - tuck in and read to Ellie
9:30 - upload stuff for Spielberg
9:45 - WORKOUT? First chance all day. I think those onion rings are going to come back to haunt me.

Alicia, how are you still sane?
