I meant to post this last night....
I hear Em up way earlier than usual.
Finally find out from her that she's not feeling so well. I order her back to bed with threats of bread and water all day and she can't come out unless she's ready to go to school.
I lysol the house. Em comes out. I lysol again.
I get Abs moving because of course this is the first time that she has slept in, in forever.
Get Junior up and moving. Put him in underwear, but he refuses to go potty, so back in a pullup so he won't pee in the car. Yeah, it happens.
Load up Abs and Junior, take Junior to hourly care. It's a new month, so that means more med cards to fill out. I walked in, they asked his name, and the girl was like "Oh, the boy with all the allergies and meds". Ummmm.....no.
Finish up there, race to Ab's school because I was supposed to meet with the teacher and the principal. (I was kind of glad that we were late and it didn't happen) Drop Abs off. Race back to Em.
Lysol the house again. Add more lysol to Sam's list. Check to make sure that all bathrooms are cleaned and well stocked.
Find lost mail keys that I just paid $40 to replace and go gather days worth of mail.
Em starts rumbling that she's bored. Finally she decides that school is better than being home. Load her up and take her to school. Run into principal who wants to have meeting then, but I have to get Junior. Schedule meeting for 2:30.
Go get Junior, race home, have lunch, play, convince him that going potty is fun. Put him in underwear.
Take Junior to preschool, go to school to have meeting with teacher and principal.
Pickup girls. Come home to find smoke alarm chirping. Leave girls, get Junior, go to commissary to get "batteries". That leads to a cart full of groceries. Go home, insert new battery and chirping continues. I start messing with it, it chirps more.
Kids unload groceries.
Call housing. Housing said they will come check it out.
Gunner calls. Military one source calls to schedule appt for Abs. Tell military one source that I will have to call them back after I have been waiting for them to call for two days.
Junior pees on the floor.
Maintenance shows up, so I pass Gunner off to the kids. Junior lets the dog in who then goes crazy and the maintenance people are scared to come down the stairs. I assure them he won't bite and go to get him outside.
Maintenance leaves and the fire alarm starts chirping. I go outside to wave down the maintenance people. Sammy gets out. Neighbors and I are chasing the dog while I am trying to still talk to Gunner and trying not to run too far so I lose the signal.
Neighbor catches the dog. Abs puts dog in backyard. Maintenance comes back in and disconnects the alarm and tells me it is an electrical problem and they will have to have an electrician come tomorrow. (I have to say that I have never met nicer maintenance men than I have at this post.)
Talk to Gunner a bit more. Bathe Junior, supervise Abs so there are no Eiffel Bubble Towers, and rotate Em through before the hot water is all gone.
Call back military one source and put kids to bed. It takes an hour to get through their process. More on that later, because we can do a self-referral with me looking someone up in the phone book for a lot less of a hassle. She was nice though.
Kids are still asleep. I might need a glass of wine tonight. I want to run tomorrow to try out my new forerunner. I hope I can fit it in.
