Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

A list full of errands

Thoughtfully penned on June 13th, 2012 and generally concerning Friendship, Life with littles

Yesterday we had a super busy day planned. Doctor appointment at 9, meeting a friend at the mall at 10 to shop for family picture clothes, meeting 2 people at 12:45 to pick up items I was buying, and squeezing in sometime a trip to Target. We are also having VBS at church this week in the evening.

So, I get everyone up and ready and am about to head out the door at 8:40 only to find that I have no car keys! Yep, searched everywhere and no keys. Ugh! I called Matt, and he had to leave work to bring me a key to my car. Then I realized I had left them on the nursery desk at church.

Normally I would have just said, okay, we aren’t going anywhere today, but I really needed to do these things. M has a recurring rash that I’m trying to figure out. Family pictures are Friday! I had made arrangements with the two ladies. We had to have wipes, bread (I didn’t have time to make any), and laundry detergent!

Matt got here, and we immediately set out. Now, I don’t usually plan more than a couple of stops in a day because the kids get tired and whiny. And I do, too. But yesterday they were real troopers!

The doc didn’t know anymore about the rash than I already knew, so I’m trying a medicine recommended by a friend and hoping for the best.

I found clothes for pictures! I bought dresses for the girls several weeks ago but needed things for the rest of us. I found shirts for Matt and J and a complete outfit for me. Never happens that easily!

And my wonderful friend, Liz…she spent all morning with us at the mall helping me find things that coordinated and wrangling my gang (as well as her son) while I tried on clothes. And then, she went to Target for me! She was going anyway, so she picked up my things so I wouldn’t have to get the kids in and out again. She’s amazing!

We made it home about 1:30 tired, hungry, and with Chick-Fil-A in hand.

And today? We’re not leaving the house!

  1. … until tonight! :) Hope your week with VBS is going well and that M and S are handling the long hours in the nursery. Let me know if you need me.
