Hello there everyone! It has been a super busy week for me. I really did not get here to myLot as much as I wanted. Monday was Keith's first day on first shift and it was very different getting up at 4 am to get him ready for work. I packed his lunch, made his coffee and sent him on his way. After he left, I tried to go back to sleep until it was time for the kids to get up for school. That was an epic fail. I tossed and turned, probably should have been myLotting instead. I keep finding myself getting the kids off to school and then going back to sleep at around 8 am. That is putting me behind with all of my daily chores. I hope to get my schedule straightened out soon. Tuesday- Plasma Center and grocery store Wednesday- IEP (Individual Education Plan) meeting for both twins at the school. Thursday- Plasma Center, pharmacy and bank Friday- Field Day at school! I am hoping that next week will be much better and I will have more time here. How has your week been?

I remember how busy I was when I had small children in the house. Some day you will look back and see just how fast they grow.

@PainsOnSlate I already see them growing up way too fast. The twins will be in first grade in August and Lil Keith will be in third.

@PainsOnSlate Yes, the twins are 6 and will be in 1st grade in August. I look at them and sometimes feel like crying. Lil Keith will be in 3rd grade and he is already too grown for my own good. He has such a busy personal life already.

Week has been fine. Not much happened. Went ahead and did some errands in the bank and picked up some items that I'll put up for sale in my online store.

We were in and out all the time this week. Monday hospital for some tests my husband had to do. Tuesday he had to go to the visit to renew his driver license (done), Wednesday it was grocers store day, Thursday it was a holiday here and Friday I worded all the day in the garden to plant my veggies.

@LadyDuck How is the process of renewing drivers licenses in your country? Here in my state, it means long lines and an all-day wait at most places.

@Shellyann36 After the age of 70, you have to go to see a public Doctor who checks if you are still in enough good health to drive. He takes care to send the report to the Motorization Office, there is nothing else to do. As you fix an appointment with the doctor, there is no waiting at all.

@LadyDuck Wow! You mean you don't get to the driver's license office and have a big crowd standing in line in front of you? That is awesome!

You've got a full plate in front of you. Mine has been hectic, I went to ma's house every day to get stuff that needs to be recycled into the recycle bin plus clean a few areas then I had to take care of the whole EIN business that I had to do because of ma's estate, the IRS wants to make sure they get every penny they can. Now I'm educating myself about the 1041 form and how that affects me given that ma didn't have taxable income when she was alive and I don't have any either. It's a learning experience. There's still lots to do but I'm making progress.

@rebelann I don't envy you. Mama had to deal with the same stuff when she was handling Aunt Helen's business after she passed away. It took over a year. She finally got it settled though. You will too but it will take a while. Hugs to you!

I hope you never have to go through anything like that @Shellyann36 I'm determined to simply get what is valuable out of mom's house and letting a cleaning crew go through and junk what's left then clean it really good.

@rebelann I hope not either. I must admit that my mama has been a packrat over the years. I think she learned a lesson from having to clean out Aunt Helen's mess. She has begun sorting and getting rid of stuff. I think that is the best idea. So much easier than having to do it all alone.

@Shavkat it is good to feel that the week has been productive! When you do so much and don't feel as if you have accomplished anything that is when it is too overwhelming.

@Shavkat Yes, I guess one has to keep things in perspective and look on the positive side to keep the negative thoughts at bay. Cross an accomplishment off of the list and know that it is done.

I had a lot jammed into the first few days this week , today is not as bad but the weekend is full. The girls have dance recitals this weekend so that will keep us busy since they take a looong time.

@mom210 it is good to see you here! Lil Keith and the twins have Kicks for Christ (karate) on Wednesday evenings and this year Lil Keith will be playing football when the season starts again. My eyes are getting blurry just thinking about it. How did the recitals go?

Sorry you couldn't go back to sleep after he left Monday. My brother had IEP for school. It helped him a lot. What is the plasma center for? You donate? I hope you have a great weekend, and then a better week here next week!

@Courtlynn I am getting accustomed to it slowly. The IEP has certainly helped the twins. I really have to stick to a learning schedule this summer so that they don't forget what they have learned and hopefully when they go back to school they will be further along. Yes, I donate to the plasma center. Hope you have a great weekend too!

@teresatrotter Do you ever get out and explore Florida? I have always wanted to move there but I found that it is far too expensive. I love the panhandle area though.

Is the plasma center to earn extra cash?

@AmbiePam I do earn extra cash at the plasma center. If I can make it twice a week every week I can earn up to $305 extra per month. If I were able to make more online now, I would not worry about it and stop going but the days when I was making five or six hundred dollars a month online are gone.
