Crazy Mondays!!

Mondays are always a busy day for me, and today was no exception. I usually try and get all my "chores" done on Mondays, so I can just have fun the rest of the week. Okay, so here is how the day went...
I Slowly get out of bed, really not wanting to face the day. I got the girls ready for school and Stephen got the boys ready ( I love when he is home in the mornings), and then headed down for breakfast. Kissed Stephen goodbye, got lunches ready, book bags packed, and then cleaned the kitchen. Hailey and Kaleb go to the neighbor who we carpool with and Karly and Blake hang out and play. I made out the dinner menu for the week, and realize I haven't eaten and grab me something to eat while I organize my coupons ( I LOVE COUPONS). Then, I sorted the laundry and started a load and finished up with coupons and the grocery list. Finished the grocery list, took the kids upstairs, checked my email and paid some bills. Next, I switched the clothes, with help from Blake, and then headed out the door. We stopped by the bank first, which is a hassle since my drivers side window doesn't work and then headed to the store. The store is actually pretty fun. We always get there when they put out the samples, so the kids and I enjoy all the yummy treats. We rushed today b/c I had my friend coming over to help with a project. When I got home I was on my cell phone with Stephen, and Karly didn't want to wait for me to get off, so she hopped out and went inside. She came back out with my dad and brothers Derek and Kyle, and they brought all the groceries in!! It was so nice. Steph, got there right as I was going inside. I got the kids lunch and started to put away groceries, while Steph was cleaning out the craft cabinet. I put all the groceries away, cleaned up the kids, then cleaned up their lunch, and took Blake for his nap. Steph had her little boy with her, so Karly played with him. I helped Steph with all the craft stuff for about an hour, and then she had to go, but I was so thankful for all her help, I really don't have much left to do. After Steph left, I put Karly in my room to watch TV for some quiet time, and then got dinner in the crock pot and realized again, that I had not eaten, so I grabbed me some lunch. I also forgot about the laundry, so I got the load out and put the other one in the dryer. When that was done it was time to get the kids from school. Picked up the kids from school, helped with homework, practiced basketball with the kids, finished dinner, and rushed off to Hailey's basketball practice!!! We all went to Hailey's practice and then for a special treat went to Krispy Kreme for some hot doughnuts!! It was a prefect ending to a crazy day.
Whoa, I wrote a lot, but it actually helps me feel better to realize I accomplished a lot today. I usually feel like I get nothing done, but putting it all done really helps me to see EVERYTHING.
Oh, and I need to give big thanks to Stephen who put all the laundry away while I was writing this. He is the best husband EVER!!
