a smidge too close

Today has been one of those busy days where everything seems to pile on top of each other when nothing was really planned to begin with.

8:30-11:30 work. Typical Monday.
11:30-12:15 lunch, helping child get dressed, school. This is the time of day where I am thankful our son can get dressed by himself. Though I'm sure it's to the point where the teacher wonders if he has any other clothes besides the three outfits that he continually wears. At least they're clean.
12:25-4:12 grocery shopping with the little miss. Quite the helper she was today.
4:12 and 30 seconds. Son off bus. Today was a day I was thankful there was not one cop on Spaulding. Going 60 down a hilly street does funny things to ones stomach. Maybe that's why the speed limit is 35. I gave myself enough time at Meijer to check out. At least I thought it was enough time. I did not have a lot of items, but the cashier would scan one item and look at all the rest to see if there was something way at the end he could put in a bag. As anal as I am, I do put all boxed goods together, canned goods, produce, chips/bread last as to not get smushed. It took a total of 10 minutes to check out. With the 40 or so items I had, it took him between 20 and 30 seconds to scan each. So I was flying out of the store at 4:05 and still had to buckle little miss in and load the groceries. It took me 3 minutes to get home. Would've been shorter if I didn't get behind someone actually doing the speed limit. It was way to close of a call. Way too close.
4:15-4:30 putting groceries away.
4:30-5:00 work and catch up with Ed.
5:00-5:30 piano lesson with son.
5:30-7:30 make dinner, Ed home, jammies.
7:30-now read books and sing songs, bed.
