149 Minutes

Leave the house at 8:17...

12 minutes to the post office
11 minutes to Costco
16 minutes back home (forgot my check book for Costco-ugh)
18 minutes back to Costco
8 minutes to Everett's school
20 minutes to Holden's school
22 minutes to home

Home at 12:22

I guess I have officially joined the ranks of harried carpool moms the world over. How is it possible that I spent 149 minutes in my car on Wednesday morning? Part of it is my fault, forgetting my checkbook and choosing Holden's school, but still, come on, seriously?

If you can believe this I only have a tape deck in my car! I know, I know, join 2010 Hanous! I told Ian, I need satellite radio-and quick, because my mix tapes (oh, they still sell tapes, and I still bust out the old fashioned boom box to create my masterpieces) are not doing it for me. The good thing is that this insanity is only on Mondays and Wednesdays, but jeeze, it's only going to get worse as these munchkins grow up, join more activities and sports, and make more friends.

  1. You've only just begun! Not only did I spend many, many hours driving the kids to activities, sometimes I sat outside in the car for the half hour voice lesson etc. It is well worth it!
