Slice of Life #4

It happened again today! I got sucked into a project that I'm working on with Kate. I picked her up before ten so we could do a Community Plates run together. We came back to her house to work on the project, and she ended making me lunch. And there I was, leaving Micah with her so I could run and pick up Stella from school. And of course, Stella wanted to play with her cousin, Laila and I was still working on this thing with Kate. Then, I finally became determined to leave when it was time to go meet Alice's bus. I got the kids all ready to go. Shoes, coats, everything. About to walk out the door. Nope. Not happening. Somehow, I ended up leaving both kids to go meet Alice's bus and bring her back to Kate's house. Before I knew it, Kate was making all the kids dinner while I bounced a drooly baby gnawing on my thumb and tried to figure out how to lift a text off a background (tear-my-hair-out-frustrating, okay, seriously!). And I still haven't figured it out. (I don't want to talk about it anymore, okay?)
I always like to be home before Henry so I can do a little housekeeping and get dinner ready, so I can at least PRETEND I got something done during all those hours he's been gone... because, I admit it, I don't want Henry coming home to a messy, chaotic scene though he often does and I totally blame Kate. I do. I'm easily plied with coffee and lunch. I'm a total sucker. That's totally on me. But it's still Kate's fault.
(Do you hear me, Kate? Are you reading this?!.... Coffee tomorrow?)
But on a more serious note, I'm doing kind of a sucky job with my word of the year, FOCUS. I've been collecting inspirational quotes and things to a board on Pinterest but I clearly need to pin it to my brain because it ain't sticking...
