That’s it – I’m tapped out. With two days to go in the A to Z Challenge I’ve hit the wall.
It is Wednesday. So far this week our family schedule has included:
- 1 lacrosse game
- 3 lacrosse practices
- 2 baseball games
- 2 baseball practices
- 2 dance classes
- 2 dance team practices
- 1 haircut
- Two band concerts
- 1 batting practice
- 3 workouts
- 1 field crew shift
- And last, but by no means least, 1 trip to urgent care (which believe me, is a blog post in and of itself)
We didn’t get to all this stuff. But we got to most of it. Oh, and work. I went to work.
But the real kicker is the announcement from my 11-year-old, as he headed off to bed (late) this evening, that he volunteered to bring corn bread to school tomorrow for his challenge reading class.
So after only a little fussing, I made corn bread. Why, you ask, would a challenge reading class require corn bread? I really couldn’t say. And why, you ask, would I bow to such an unreasonable request? Because I was too tired to resist, of course. I am dog tired.
So I’m headed to bed, without a tip for working parents other than this:
You see that list above? Yeah, don’t do that.
Tomorrow….Z is for Zzzzzzz
