So a couple months ago my partner's brother's new fiance got invited to attend a conference in San Francisco and asked if my partner and I could watch their 3 kids. Sure enough I was just about to ask her if she could watch my 100 pound Golden Retriever and tiny shitzu-maltese barking nightmare while Matt and I went out of town to Ocean City, sooo, I had to accept her request. She warned me that in all fairness the three kid's schedules were something of a matrix. For example, on Wednesdays Lilly gets out of school at 3:15 but has to be at softball practice by 3:30, meanwhile the younger duo,Garyian and Maddie, get out of school at 3:45, and Garyeon has to be at football practice by 4:00, but not without getting him a little snicky snack so he doesnt pass out like Lindsay Lohan after a long night of partying drinking "red bull"...Fortunately after we scuttle Garyun off to American football practice we do not have to have Maddy to her practice until 4:30. However we do have to pick up Lilly at 4:45 so that we can transport her to CCD, which I am led to believe is a Christian Children Discussion group or something...needless to say I do NOT want her to be late to that. I may in fact try and find a nun named GIDGET and hope she has flying powers just in case I am running late and need to summon her to my rescue. Fortunately after we get her to CCD we have a few moments to catch our breath, drive thru Starbucks and get a double mocha espresso. The line better not be long. Then, we pick Maddie up from practice and get her to CCD at 5:30, and then leave CCD to get Gary-yen from football and then head back to pick up Lilly from CCD by 6. I don't think Maddies group ends their discussion until 7:30, which to me seems like a long time for 10 year olds to sit and discuss, but I'm assuming they get a lot done!
The reason I mention all of this is because I am currently in PA partaking in said adventure and thus have little time to writ, oh crap I'm down one kid, i gotta go!
