Timeline for today, May 15, 2013

7:45                 Ninja wakes me up… “Honey I have to go to work, HoneyBear is still sleeping and SydneyBean has been changed” he says as he hands me a clean SydneyBean.

STILL SLEEPING!!!! Get up let’s get moving!

7:46                Feed SydneyBean

8:02                I pee, I mention this because this is the last time I will do so until 3:49pm

8:05                SydneyBean & I climb up to HoneyBear’s top bunk and steamroll her J

8:10                I pour myself a coffee and pour HoneyBear’s cereal, juice, vitamin D and vitamin bear

8:15                Get SydneyBean dressed and changed again…

8:20               Get HoneyBear dressed

8:30                Wet down and blowdry HoneyBear’s nappy hair.

8:40                Realize HoneyBear has not finished her breakfast and chase her back up to the table, she finishes while I pack her backpack and get SydneyBean ready to go.

8:50                Pack both kids in the van & ready to go

9:15                 Pack SydneyBean in the van & ready to go

9:20                Get home, get SydneyBean out and go check on Mom. She is in a lot of pain and her medicine is not working. She thinks that the tooth that was pulled (due to the chemo) has left an abscess. She hasn’t been out of bed in 2 days. The pain from the radiation is really affecting her. The side effects are lasting longer than we had hoped. She asks me to make her a Dentist appointment with her dentist… she thinks his name is Hutchinson and he is in an office somewhere on Main St.

9:40                Search Google for a Dentist that fits that criteria

9:50                Give up and call Dad

9:51                Confirm with Dad that the Dentist’s name is Ian something on Main St

9:52                Search Google for a Dentist that fits THAT criteria

9:55                 Call Dr Dickinson’s office and convince the receptionist that this is an emergency and get my Mom an appointment for 1:15pm

After reading this, I am officially tired. And ready to eat Domino's, strangely enough. My days aren't that haywire yet, since my girls aren't in daycare/preschool, but I know it's creeping up quickly. So thanks for the peek, lol.
