Baseball is (hopefully?!?) drawing to a close

This is the last week of baseball games....well, until they start tournament this weekend. It's a double-elimination tournament, which means that each team plays until they have lost two games. Since two of the kids' teams are ranked as #1 in their age bracket, I'm afraid we're in for another REALLY long week next week. Last night we had two games...one of which started at 7:30 pm and the second started at 8:00 pm....ending at 9:00 and 10:00 pm, respectively. My kids' bedtimes are 8:00 and 9:00 pm...so getting them up this morning was fun.....

In the mean time, we have at least one more game this week, plus doctor's appointments for myself and the 6-year-old, a WIC appointment today, an 8th grade dance on Friday, and Field Day at two different schools on Friday. I'd like to catch up on the house (yeah, right), the laundry(who am I kidding?!?), and keep up with my work. The vacuum cleaner decided not to work, the kids are too anxious to be outside to be much help and Hubby is now coaching TWO softball teams (as of yesterday) and playing on a third, plus working full-time, and in school full-time. If it is going to get done, **I** have to do it...ALL of it.

So, if I disappear for a while, it will be because I fell asleep and slept through all the alarms....because work always goes faster after midnight, right?

I'm exhausted just reading about it! Yikes!

I'll never understand why children's evening activities are scheduled so late. I'm dreading VBS getting out at 9pm next week. Do you have trouble getting yours back to bed on time after stuff like that, or are mine the only ones that try to take advantage of it? ;)
