My daily routine yesterday looked something like this:

*Send Brandon of to the bus stop 8:25 AM.
*Discuss day and other issues with Bryan and kiss him goodbye.
*Check email and FB and write a blog post while drinking my slimfast breakfast.
*Lilian wakes. Snuggle time and breakfast.
*Sort clean laundry.
*Phone calls about ballet carpool.
*Get Lilian dressed and off to ballet 10:50 AM.
*Take a shower and get ready for the day.
*Lilian arrives home. Changes out of her ballet clothes (reluctantly) and eats lunch.
*Look up recipes, make a dinner menu and a grocery list.
*Send Lilian off to preschool 12:50 PM.
