A Day In My Life.....

Just had the craziest day ever. Had to work until the wee hours of the morning to then muster up some energy & get Evan to swimming practice early this morning. I was so exhausted but I didn't want him to miss his make up session, so I took him (in the sweltering heat). Afterwards, I brought Evan over to the lab for some routine bloodwork. I was impressed at how nice the phlebotomist was & at how she took the time to explain the whole process to Evan & even gave him a big hug & some stickers when he was done for being such a good sport =) After that, we grabbed a bite to eat then went to the library and reminded Evan a million times that he had to whisper in there. lol He was so excited because he loves books....he couldn't contain his excitement. We signed out a bunch of books then headed home to drop him & big brother off to relax at home while I went to Gio's school to buy him this years uniform & school planner. I'm so glad that I got that overwith because I was about to lose it with them the year before (they kept messing up our order). Thank God things went smoothly & Gio has his stuff. I just have to find someone to fix the length cause the slacks are a bit too long but I'll worry about that on Monday. We then ended up going to the bank then back home to find hubby looking miserable and asking me to go Urgent Care with him (I was so ready to collapse from exhaustion, but I took him). The staff worked quickly and gave him a shot of penicillin & some prescriptions so I'm hoping he gets some type of relief cause it's been 2 weeks of him coughing up a lung. I THENNNN had to take him to the pharmacy to get his meds, picked up a few snacks for the boys at Target as well as a pizza cause I had no energy left to even think about cooking. We finally got home, took showers, & ate. I went to lie down in bed & I passed out until 10pm (which means I'll probably be up all night now).  This is why I can never, ever relax.....always something to do, always on duty as mom, nurse, cook, taxi cab...etc. but I wouldn't have it anyother way =)
