Today...

I've had a rockstar day so far today...

*Went running first thing
*Came home and made my children a hot breakfast
*Stretched and did some dishes
*Folded about 6 loads of laundry (and put it away, thank you very much)
*De-junked/cleaned the boys room and rotated all of their clothes (this may be a bit premature. Oh well, they can wear a sweatshirt :)
*Ate my breakfast... at about 11:30 (better late than never)
*Fed the kids lunch and put Bart and Sayer down
*Straightened up the house and did more dishes
*Took a shower and got dressed
*Had scripture study while Asher watched Madeline (I am so ready for his spring break to be over!) 
*Got organized, made some lists, thought about dinner (gasp!)
*Ate my lunch
*Started reading a new book (my treat for being so awesome today) 
*Did some posting on facebook and my blog (clearly the most important accomplishments of the day)
It may not sound like much, but that's a lot to accomplish {for me} before 2:00 pm, I'd say!  I feel completely justified in posting about my awesome-ness today, because this kind of day never happens for me, seriously.  Sad, huh?  So I'm not bragging really, but rather, just documenting for my own benefit, that days like this are possible, despite what I may think. ;)

And now, it's only 2:45, the kids are all up, and I am completely wasted.  Hmmm... not sure how I will make it to the end of the day, but pretty sure heading out to the park will help... always does :)

Just one more little nugget...

My friend Clare posted this picture...
on facebook, and I think it is pretty much the cutest thing in the world.  This is Addi, one of Asher's very best friends.  They have known each other for almost 3 years, which is practically forever to them.  I love how his arm is around her and her hand is on his chest/side.  They look like a little couple.  Clare and I always talk about how we will get together when they are 16 and they will probable have little crushes on each other. :)  They will actually be moving to Dallas at the end of the summer :( and I know that Asher will miss his little friend a lot!!

hey, way to go, all together quite an amazing accomplishment. I would count myself lucky to get two of those done.

That IS an awesome day! I am just now getting all the dishes done from Easter dinner last night. Still haven't touched laundry or any other household cleaning. It is hard to be productive with a newborn and toddler. I am working on it though. I need a day like your because I have family coming to visit on Wednesday. Maybe tomorrow...

Wow! I'm super impressed! That's like 3 days worth of stuff you did before 3pm! Way to go!

Totally impressed with your day. That should be my goal for tomorrow :)

Hi, Morgan - I live in the same building as you do, and stumbled across your blog a few months back while looking for info on the fire we had in September. (We've met briefly once or twice, and have a mutual friend in Ravi, who speaks very highly of you and Nate.) I enjoy reading your blog because it's interesting to see how another mom copes with small kids in the city! I also find your posts on running encouraging, as I'm training for my third marathon. Good luck with your upcoming race - I hope your training goes well, and that you have a lot more "rockstar days."
