This first day of March has been an incredibly busy day. It was busy at school, what with starting the Slice of Life Challenge with my kiddos, regular teaching duties, an extra after-school duty covered for a friend, and then an after school meeting. But that was only the beginning.
I left my meeting to pick up my oldest son and his best friend at their high school, where they were auditioning for the next theatre production. The next stop was another high school in the district where their choir was performing. After the performance, I hopped back in the car with the boys and another student who asked if I could give her a ride. I dropped off first one extra kid, and then the other, before heading to my second son's middle school to await the conclusion of his drama production rehearsal.
I am currently sitting in the parking lot with my son snoozing in the passenger seat (resting up before he finally makes it home and has to spend the rest of the night on dinner and homework) writing my first Slice of Life post of the challenge. Thanks to the wonders of the personal hotspot allowing my iPad to piggyback on my iPhone's cell signal, I will be able to write and post all from the warmth of my car. Otherwise, I might not make it to post before midnight!
You see, the craziness does not end when the last kid is in the car and we are headed for home. When I get home it will be time to finally have dinner, catch up with my husband, pack lunches for me and my youngest son, listen to my second grader read his nightly books, pick out my clothes for tomorrow, review my lesson plans for tomorrow, post my students SOL posts, take a shower and finally head to bed.
And today is only Tuesday! I think March's "in like a lion" might be referring more to my schedule than the weather!
