Big Day Today

So, really, I'm just trying to hype myself up for it. Today is one of those dreaded days for daycare providers. One of those days when the big kids are out of school. Don't get me wrong - I love my kids, really a lot. But when they're out of school, they think they should get to do whatever they want - all day long. That doesn't work so much when I've got a house full of little ones who have rules and a routine to follow. So there is more wildness than normal, more fighting between the kids and the other kids than normal, more fighting between all the kids and me than normal, more messes to pick up, more food to fix, more noise all day and .... Well, you get the picture. And then it all repeats tomorrow. Yay.

So, this is me, trying to find the positives.

* It is not supposed to rain.
* The sun is supposed to shine so maybe, just maybe, it'll dry out enough for us to get outside.
* S has a check up this morning so I get to get out for a while, leaving B with the kids!
* I am prepping our preschool activities to T and B can do them with the kids while I'm gone.
* The last debate was last night so I don't have to sit through any more of those.
* The guy is coming to measure our house for new carpet today.
* It's my favorite TV night.
* My workshop for this weekend is already done and packed up.
* Tomorrow night I get to hang out with my girlfriends.
* I don't have to wake the kids up early to get ready for school and it's quiet right now.

That's enough for now. There are enough reasons there to focus on that I should be OK, right?
