Peach State says: Keeping Up with My Day!


These weeks just fly by…except for Monday and today is going to drag!
It is going to take a great deal of creativity and skill to strategically manipulate the varied schedules of my family. “Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Danny I will simply wipe my brow and continue Keeping Up With My Day!

I have decided to carry an abacus to keep a running tally of the different routine chores, routine outings, extra-nonscheduled-have to attends, the run me here and theres…not to mention the balancing of each of my 4 son’s different schedules. The blending of six unique and complex schedules can be Bear…which is why I am Mama Bear…and don’t make me mad! Making me mad will cause me to delete your scheduled events. “That will teach them!”

I sat down with my #2 son a little while ago in hopes our schedules would easily merge. He has work at 11-3 then off to the gym by 4. I have my youngest coming home at 4 and he will eat dinner before heading to TKD Awards Night (hoping for the next belt rank). Sometime between 6:15 and 6:20 I will meet up with #2 son and drop off those with me and head to church for a much needed extra practice for our Easter music. About 7:00 my hubby will call and tell me he is on his way home…but we will not be able to chat on his drive home like usual…I will be at practice. “I did mention the practice to him this morning as he rushed out the door to his 7:30am meeting.” ( A special thanks to my hubby’s boss for setting this special early meeting. We had to get up an hour earlier today!)

Somewhere between recruiters and doctors…school and TKD…work and normal everyday chores…I will Keep Up With My Day! “I will sure try my best!” I should fill up and be prepared for the rest of the day…


Here’s hoping we have a great Monday! Have a great day!

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
