NaBloPoMo day 2

Hi!  Look at this, 2 days in a row.

Yesterday I went to find the ‘official’ link up and had some trouble.  I guess I’m not paying enough attention to the internet, and, I’m not on the “A” list of bloggers so I didn’t get the memo about where the party started.  I dug around and found a nice list so that is the one I joined and I plan on visiting my blog list neighbors over the month.

I  want to take a second to introduce myself to any new visitors.  This is my spot to write down what is going on in my world so when I forget I can look back (and I do often, love the search function).  Somehow other people beyond my own family also like to know what goes on is what is in my opinion, a pretty typical American house.  I live in Minnesota.  It is a state ‘up north’ for us but I’m not sure how the entire country of Canada feels about that phrase.  It gets cold her but does not actually snow a ton, our falls and springs are really nice and I like the summer – never gets much above 80f.  It is an outdoors type place, lots of hunting and fishing and hiking and camping.  I do 1 of the 4 because what I consider camping does not fit the average opinion and I like my food preskinned.  I like the state though, I moved here as an adult from New York (near ‘the city’ but not in the metropolis) and I still travel there plenty to see friends and family.  Coming full circle, moving is pretty much why I started blogging so my mom and friends would know what I was up to.  I started this blog while I was working and when I had my #3 I started the stay at home mom life.  I can let you guess what one is harder!  Anyway, around here for the next few days you will be subject to my angst at a political race I’m running, election day is next Tuesday.  After that, it will be more focused on whatever is going on in my world.  I thought stay at home life would be dull but it certainly is not.

Just for kicks – here is my agenda for today

6:30- 8 = computer work for the campaign

8-9:05 = motivate 3 children to dress, eat, brush, remember backpacks, pack lunches, sign homework, get out the door, pick up carpool, deliver 5 kids to school.

9:05-9:20 = the most peace I get all day driving home solo.  (This is usually when I call my grandmother)

9:20-9:30 = intake of food while reviewing all the things for the day and then walk the dog

9:30-11 ish = work for people who pay me, campaign, and today blogging

11ish = hot tub w the husband.  hey, gotta have the perks!  We actually use the time together to make sure we are on the same page on things.  Can’t bring a phone into the water so distraction-free time.  Plus, it makes me warm and helps sore muscles.

post hot tub to 1 = more computer work interspersed with chores and dog walk and lunch.

1-2ish = today I will attempt to make my hallway look like less like a boot and snow pant explosion.  If I get really lucky I’ll make a garage that a car can fit into (this has been an ongoing project for a week)

2-3 = workout – arms day. Also my yacking time with Vacation Mom

3-3:45 = try and avoid the computer and get the laundry sorted out and the kitchen under control.

3:45 – 5 = parent!  homework, snacks, referee duty, adviser duty, harass them into doing chores.  Be hugged and snuggled, maybe read some books.

5pm – out the door to a voteyes call center event, leaving the kids with dad and a note that he must make them all shower before I get home and a chicken in the oven.

8:30 – start the bedtime process on hopefully clean kids.

9ish – hang out with whoever is here (husband has people over most Thursdays for an ongoing game)

11 – go to sleep, hopefully before 12 at least.

That is the plan.  Today’s plan at least.  Tomorrows looks similar but not the same.  I promise not to post my daily chore list often, just thought it might be fun to note my life at this point – if this inspires someone else let me know, I love to read about real lives of real people.
