In 7 minutes

In 7 minutes, I can....
get dressed
make oatmeal for Meg
switch the laundry
make a brief phone call
check e-mail
get kids to the car
start a bath
find a recipe for dinner
plant 2 flowers in the yard
say my prayers
re-pack the diaper bag
change my mind at least 4 times

I am sure there are more things that take a mere 7 minutes to accomplish. The problem I have now is that the bus schedule has changed by 7 minutes. It doesn't seem like that much, but it's 7 minutes earlier. Even getting up 10-15 minutes earlier in the morning does not seem to compensate for thost 7 minutes. We have missed the school bus 6 times in the last 10 school days. We just can't seem to get ourselves out of the house those 7 minutes earlier. It's driving me crazy. Today, I am hunting for 7 minutes. If you find them, let me know.

Ugh! Missing the bus probably throws your whole day off.

I cahn't do half of the things you mentioned in less than a half hour!

I Love this post, and I wish I could tell you I found you're seven minutes, but we are NOT morning people around here. I dread the day Nicole starts school and I have to get up by 7AM. :) Keep Smiling!
