Today is school picture day at Buddy's school. Thank goodness I saw a reminder for it on the daily lunch menu and quickly filled out the forms and a check. I always order the smallest package, because really, his photos don't vary much - except the frames on his glasses.
The boys have to wear their uniform, tie and school sweater. They also are supposed to wear long pants (as opposed to the shorts) for the group picture. Someday I will have to line up all those photos and marvel over the glasses changes. LOL.
So, I got him up and ready to go this morning. I packed lunches for him and the Evil Twin (although Buddy took his lunch yesterday, too - but forgot to bring his lunch box home, so his lunch was sent in a used plastic grocery sack. I'm out of the brown paper lunch sacks.... remind me to put that on my WalMart list for next Monday).
I swear that I function as the brain of this house and that's pretty scary, if you ask me. I can be as absentminded or forgetful as anyone, but I'm in charge of remembering what must be done every day - and that changes.
Tuesdays and Thursdays are Buddy's school are gym days. The boys have to wear dress shoes with their uniforms, so they must remember to bring tennis shoes on Tues and Thurs for gym.
I have to stay on top of the lunch menu and ask Buddy in advance if he wants the school lunch that day or a packed lunch (alternately known as: hot lunch or cold lunch).
I was planning tonight's dinner last night - taking inventory of what I had, what needs to be used up before it goes bad and what I think my family will eat given the food items I have on hand to work with.
So, I was pulling frozen chicken tenderloins out of the freezer at 11 pm last night. I'm planning on Chicken in a Garden. That might change though and I can always switch to another chicken dish.
Because my poor brain must work at warp speed the majority of the time, I've decided today is "Be as lazy as possible day". It's almost 9 am and I haven't even made the beds or had a shower yet. Egads. This place might go to hell in a handbasket!
I think I'm going to snuggle under a blanket and laze around with Sissy for a bit. (or as long as my OCD will allow). Wish me luck! And remind me about that item for WalMart later on!
