“Saturday night’s alright…”

  • Wake up at around 6:00 a.m. to be to work by 6:30 a.m.
  • End shift and leave work at 9:30 a.m. and get back into bed until 11:00.
  • Tailgating from 11:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Never make it to a game once.

  • Nap until 7:00 p.m.
  • Dinner
  • Get gussied up and begin pre-party party in our rooms at the house.
  • Leave for frat party at 10:00 p.m. Kiss a boy. Dance on a table.
  • Stumble to bed at around 4:00 a.m. Sunday morning.
  • Repeat.

2001

  • Wake up by the sunlight streaming into the windows, check the clock, notice it is 9:00 a.m.
  • Roll over, kiss new husband, snuggle closer and go back to sleep.
  • Wake up again at 11:00 a.m. Shower and get pretty for new husband.
  • Late breakfast/early lunch at Koney. He gets a Hani and I get breakfast.
  • Go to the mall for a cute new outfit. Have a late lunch.

  • Crawl into bed at around 1:00 a.m.
  • Repeat.

2006

  • Wake up by the sound of A chatting to Duckie about her dream last night, check the alarm clock, notice it is 6:00 a.m.
  • Lay perfectly still, pretend to be sleeping as husband stirs in his sleep.
  • Fall back to sleep.
  • Wake up by the sound of A yelling into the monitor, the content of which translates to say, “I know you can hear me, so wake up and let’s start my day!” Check alarm clock, notice it is 7:00 a.m.
  • Lay perfectly still as husband stirs and awakens. Pretend you don’t feel him nudging you. Smile as he gets up to get the Bean.
  • Hug the Bean, snuggle with her under the covers, try unsuccessfully to coax her back to sleep.
  • Avoid disaster no less than three times as the Bean attempts to lunge over the side of the bed while attacking the dogs. Drag self out of bed at 8:00 a.m.
  • Spend next ten minutes convincing M that it is breakfast time and that she can’t sleep her life away. Receive grunts and angry glares.
  • Breakfast and playtime.
  • Naptime for Beans, chore time for Momma Bean.
  • Lunch and then off to Costco/Target/Lakeside. No shower needed. Barely any make-up required.
  • Attend a child’s birthday party, visit grandparents and pick up carry-out and a movie.
  • Dinner at 6:00 p.m. then playtime.
  • Bathtime and bedtime at 8:00 p.m., then into my jammies the minute their heads hit their crib.
  • Claim best spot on couch, snuggle under blanket, and watch ¾ of the movie. Fall asleep.
  • Wake up, blearily check the clock, notice it is 11:00 p.m. Trudge upstairs to bed.
  • Repeat.

Life is good.

Man have I missed checking in on all the blogs! Can you believe work actually wanted me to work for the past two weeks? ugh. the nerve!

Anywho! I love this post! You may have inspired me to do one like this of my own! You know, we've considered putting them in bed by 8, but then that means they wake up early, so we put them in bed at 10 and they wake up at 9-9:30 ish. Bad momma huh? Yes, my own mother gives me "the look" sometimes. ah well such is life!

Meanwhile, I wish I would have done more of your first set of Saturdays!
