A little story to illustrate how my week has been...

So...yesterday I went to work, went to the grocery, picked up the girls and brought them home. They had choir last night, so I made them do their homework right away and at 5:15 we went to Wendy's to get dinner. After dinner we went right to choir. I met my girlfriend, Carolyn, there and we were sitting in the vestibule chatting when I decided to put my feet up on the chair.
When I looked at my feet.....

I was wearing.....

2 different shoes!

That's pretty much how my life has been in a nutshell lately.

Feeling very efficient today...

but very tired. I have completed the following today:
  • got up at 4 with daughter #2 who refused to go back to sleep
  • cleared off the 'counter of death' in the kitchen
  • made a coherent grocery list after searching the ads
  • went grocery shopping and forgot nothing on said list
  • browned 3 lbs of ground turkey
  • crockpotted 4 lbs of chicken breasts
  • made 2 lbs of macaroni noodles
  • packaged the above for freezer/fridge
  • went to the eye doctor
  • took girls to birthday party and picked them up from said party
  • made a plan for the week's dinners
I am tired.

So, I'm driving from work to pick the girls up at school. I go through a neighborhood where the speed limit is 25, and I am being careful (since I saw a million cops in the neighborhood on my way to work) to go 30. There is a car behind me with 2 teenage boys in it. It seems to be following me closely, and it's really aggravating me. I pull up to a stop sign and the car pulls next to me (on the left). I assume he's just going to pass me because I am driving *too slowly*. He signals to me to roll down my window and I am all ready for some sort of argument or taunting about driving a Maxi-van... I roll down my window and the kid asks,
"Does GGG 2000 stand for girl, girl, girl born in 2000?" (that's my license plate)
I answer, "Yep!"
The kid says, "That's cool!" and then signals for me to go ahead.
Darn teenagers! I get myself all ready for a rumble and then they pull that!!
