6:30am: Alarm. Ugh. Check to see if the girls are awake. Amelia is making tea- good. Vivian is in bed, sleeping, with her clothes and jacket on- nice effort.
6:45: Clean up dog pee. The glamour starts early.
7:00: Check Facebook, Etsy, email, etc.
7:15: Girls out the door. Eat banana muffins (yum).
7:30: Get boys up. They don't give me too much trouble. They eat an entire loaf of banana bread. Wow.
8:00: Shower. Fast.
8:20: Boys out the door. Dry hair. Try to look reasonable.
8:30: Kiss husband goodbye. Off to work. Decent shortcut via low bridge (good). Stop at Starbucks (bad).
9-5: Desk job. Look busy.
5:08: Home. Record time! Hit all the green lights, no trains, no drawbridge. Yesssss.
5:35: Husband is out tonite, but kitchen is clean. Bonus points for husband. Get dinner on the table. Tacos. No bonus points there. Clean up kitchen.
6:15: Take Viv to Bellevue for Karate. Yuck, Eastside. No traffic, so overall good.
7-8:00: Shop for pretty papers in Bellevue! The only thing I actually WANT in Bellevue is pretty paper. Paper spree ensues. Also walk thru Crate and Barrel and have too-long conversation with possibly-crazy person about silicon baking cups. Mmhmm. Run into Safeway for frosting and sprinkles for bake sale cupcakes.
8:15: Pick Viv up from Karate. Still in Bellevue. Gross.
8:25: Re-enter Seattle airspace. Breathe easy.
8:30: Make 2 dozen cupcakes for bake sale tomorrow. From a mix- no bonus points. Mix is left over from The Wedding Cake- bonus points for thriftiness? Give self bonus points.
8:45: Chase kids into bed.
9:15: Kids actually in bed.
9:15-10:59: Cut pretty papers into tidy little rectangles for making candleholders. There are some gorgeous designs here. Like, GORGEOUS.
11:00: Yawn. Bedtime. Write day's timeline on blog. Go to sleep.
Sweet dreams, my crafty minions. We get to do it all again tomorrow.
