Laurel asking for help going potty. Making Lee lunch and morning coffee. Let the dog out. Bethel wants breakfast. David wants to talk about his airplane. Laurel wants to play frisbee. I tell her that she needs to be dressed first, so she runs to get her clothes. I realize David isn’t dressed yet, so send him to get dressed. I would really like to make my bed, but first I need to wash the spread. I need a shower, but that can wait. Laurel wants to listen to Beethoven’s Wig (nobody else minds, thankfully), so I help her put it on. Sit down for devotions, remember that I need to write, answer a quick email, pray for my cousin who was recently divorced. I should really start devotions, but first I’ll get breakfast going for the kids.
Sometimes I feel like I can’t complete any activity or thought from start to finish without having to stop in the middle. I used to think that was my personality, but now I’m starting to wonder….
Technically, this wasn’t the first five minutes, since God gave me the grace for a quick run before the kids got up. This post gives the first five minutes when I walked in the door. I’ve enjoyed all the comments recently. I’m not ignoring anyone! Hopefully this weekend, I’ll get to responding to comments and the emails you all have written.
