Rocking and Rolling

I am on FIRE today and am so excited I just have to post and share my joy. Baby has finally gotten on a decent schedule where he takes two (long!) naps a day and is in bed by 6:30 for the night. It has opened up a whole new world for me - I feel like I'm starting to get back in the groove of things.

So why am I so happy today? Here's what I have to be thankful for:
-My cleaning lady came this morning and my house is clean from top to bottom.
-I'm working on an awesome work project that I love and had a great meeting with a colleague this morning about some exciting other new opportunities.
-After the work meeting, I had time to make three stops of errands on my list before I had to get the kids from school. Bonus points - they were all returns, which means I actually got crap OUT of my house instead of bringing more in!
-My kids had Stay-N-Play, which means they ate lunch at school and I didn't have to mess up my (clean!) kitchen.
-The two youngest took a nap, which means I got quality one-on-one time with Cade - yay!
-The baby slept and the boys entertained each other so I had time to make not only tonight's dinner, but tomorrow's as well (chili). This is a lifesaver because Cade has choir at 5 pm on Wednesday's and scraping together dinner after that is always a nightmare.
-My hubby came home early and children are still either sleeping or occupied, which means we might get to ACTUALLY HAVE A CONVERSATION!
-Since he is home early, dinner will be early, and I will have time to run to the gym.

I am so happy I could just cry. Life is good. And yes, you may address me as "SuperMom".

Ok, I realize your age group is all about electronic stuff versus hard copies and paper - but PRINT this blog portion and permanently affix it to the front of your refrigerator!!! :)
