Working for the Weekend

After being back in the good ol' Fort Smith for 8 days, I am ready to get out for a couple. I absolutely LOVE being home, but I have had to make some minor adjustments for the past week. I have played Mom to everyone. Entirely exhausting, but so much fun.

Reasons for playing mother:

- My mom has worked every night since I have been home.. which means she has slept every day since I've been home.. which means I have to entertain myself.

- Martha (the godmother) had a cyst removed off of her hand and is in a soft cast... so therefore she can't cook, fit clothes over it, or drive for a week.

- Mamaw is staying at my house for 2 1/2 weeks while my aunt is in AZ.

So what, you may ask?

Well.... after all of these insignificant, yet multiple things piling on top of one another... it gets tiring!!
Yesterday I woke up, made Mamaw breakfast, went to check on Martha, helped her get some things ordered, went to the grocery store, made homemade pizza for Martha and her husband... since she can't cook, made a treat for my mom to take to a work party, spooned 3 tbs. of trailmix into 20 individual snack size baggies, packed a snack basket for the car, did Mamaw's laundry, washed the dishes, vacuumed the house, went to bed, then took Lauren (child I nanny) to the orthodontist this morning, then Martha to Wal-Mart for a few items, then back to the house.

Summary of the past 30 hours of my life... Whoever thinks being a stay-at-home mom means they sit at home and do nothing is WRONG!

My cure for all of this? SIX FLAGS OVER TEXAS!!!

Yep. All that work for everyone in the fam is deserving of a weekend trip to Dallas. Me, mom, Cameron, Liz, and Mamaw are packing up and heading out.
