Super Tuesday

Well it's been a good day to this point, I woke up and went through my usual morning routine, got to take a bath and get dressed before getting the kids up and getting them ready to go to school. I just got home from picking Chloe up at her Preschool which is connected with our Church. I filled the gas tank in the van up gas was $3.21 a gallon, the van doesn't get the best gas mileage though only about 15 mpg. I only had the little time while Chloe was in school so I went to McDonald's and let Nick play on the slides he likes doing that, Cody is starting to try to do the things Nick does now, Aubrey was sleeping in her car seat when we got there so I just left her in there and changed her diaper when she woke up. I feel in such need for a nap now but Chloe doesn't want to take one. I have about an hour and a half before I leave to get the big kids from school.

I drive quite a bit too, just taking the kids to school and picking them up takes up a lot. I did manage to get a little nap in, Chloe was sitting here watching tv when I woke up and the other kids were all sleeping still. I do feel refreshed now.

    With all the kids home it will never happen for me but with them in school it helps me be able to get at least an hour in.

    I guess it's part of being a mom, your always worrying. I like it when they lay in bed with me and I get to take a nice nap.

    I'm usually up by about 5:30 to be able to get a nice bath in and get ready. I start waking the kids up about 6:15 so I have a little time each day to get ready before starting the day.

      Gas here is up to $3.69! :( Our truck is like having a van again...gas guzzler. One of the challenges of having a big family is needing a big vehicle.

      Oh that's so true, I couldn't live without my van anymore, it's a 15 passenger Chevy Express 3500 and it guzzles the gas but it is really a nice vehicle for a big family like we have.

        Ladies - I hope you are sitting down for when I tell you how much gas costs where I live in Canada: It's about $1.30 per litre, which is equivalent to $4.92 per gallon. Now stop your griping :-)

        Actually I'm in one of the states that is in the lower half of gas prices on average. I use Gasbuddy.com and it has helped me save a lot in gas. I'm a member and report gas prices on their site daily.
