If The Past Two Months Are Any Indication...

Then I will:

Call 9-1-1: at least once
Pick up a fallen baby: 127 times
Put on shoes: 213 times
Push on swing: 24 hours
Fill sippy cups: 279 times
Make: 45 meals
Dread feeding triplets: 93 times
Clean the table: 60 times
Sweep the floor: 60 times
Change: 465 diapers
Wipe Noses: 372 times
Listen to crying: 90 hours
Blog: 18 times
Submit: 2 writing lessons
Put babies in bed: 93 times
Do: 14 loads of laundry
Write: 5 chapters in my novel (more if I can find the time)
Drive back and forth to school: 32 times
Listen to: 248 hours of babbling
Listen to: 124 hours of kids talking

And to add to that for the month of May:

Drive: 17 hours to Florida with five kids
Go in the pool: 14 times for a total of 28 hours
Watch Kaitlyn finish 2nd grade

Yes, these figures are accurate. Scientific multiplication and careful counting brought me to these numbers :) Give or take...

P.S. The laundry count is completely accurate - I have a very large washer and dryer and it holds 3 baskets of laundry at a time. Every other Monday I wash 7 loads of laundry. Every other Tuesday I fold 7 loads and put them all away. It's a very easy system for me. Every one has their own laundry basket so the dirty laundry is always contained. Laundry is one thing I have under control. One down, ten thousand more to go!

Surely, you do more than 14 loads of laundry in a two month period!

I too was amazed at how little laundry you do! Is that math correct?!? If so, what's the secret?

That's so funny...and I have to say, I'm so jealous of your washer and dryer...they are awesome! And your iron is pretty cool too! (I ironed a bunch of Kaitlyn's school uniforms for Kirk when you were in the hospital on bed rest...remember those days?)

Do give us the dish on what type of washer and dryer you have so I can start begging for one. The iron would be helpful too. I have actually been looking to replace mine.

Please write more chapters of your book than 5. My mom and I are dying to find out what happens.

It seems kind of crazy when you look at it that way! It would be great though if you could go without the 911 call this month!

I have so much to catch up on but I have really missed your blog and especially the novel I have tried to keep up I think I'm only a chapter or 2 behind now.
