6:40 - Arrive at gym (We try to get there earlier...but it usually takes forever to get our stuff together, get the kids ready and make sure we're all fed! Why did I have 3 kids again?)
6:45 - After unpacking all 5 back packs, all the tennis rackets and 3 children we head into the gym.
6:46 - Scan membership card as children rush past us to the nursery. Try to catch up with children with haste.
6:53 - Children have been signed in (stating they got there at 7pm...shhhhh), nursery lead has been introduced to all 3 monsters, monsters have been threatened (for about the 5th time) that they will NOT go swimming if they are do not behave. Time to head to the tennis courts.
6:55 - Go to reserve a court before we change. (Made the mistake of reserving it after we changed once...ended up on the outside courts with the sun glaring in our eyes and mosquitoes eating my legs as I served)
7:10 - How sad is it that it takes two full grown adults 15 minutes to change into their gym clothes? Well now that we are changed we grab our (tennis)balls and walk out to our assigned court.
7:12-8:00 - Tennis! YAY! To give you a mental picture....imagine two full grown adults (well one looks about 12 ... but still) flailing their arms and rackets all over the place, missing most returns, barely able to hold a volley, and balls flying all over the place. We ROCK!
8:05-8:20 - Put away the rackets and give a mad dash to the cardio/weights room. Hubs usually works on weights while I force myself to run a mile...usually completed within 10 to 12 minutes. I kinda look silly running and I'm not sure why I force myself to do so. I can barely keep on the treadmill without holding on to the handles! I kinda look like a drunk trying to run in place. It's not a pretty picture.
8:20 - 8:25 - Mad dash to the showers. Take the worlds quickest shower and slap on a bathing suit, then cover it up with a large t-shirt.
8:25 - MAD dash to make it to the nursery to recover the kids before our hour and a half is up. (After which the rate goes from $1 per kid for an hour and a half to $2 per kid for 10 minutes!) Emphasis on MAD dash
8:27-8:45 - Help children get into bathing suits. SHOULD be an easy task, unfortunately it is not
8:45 - 9:15 - Even after an hour and a half of working out, we must now endure another 30 to 45 minutes of swimming with our three children. Usually the water is cold and I am super tired. But apparently the kids enjoy themselves....sigh
9:15 - 9:30 - Get everyone into PJ's and head home...AFTER gathering up the 5 back packs, tennis rackets and now 3 tired children
We get home about 9:45...and what do the kids do? Go to be would be the ideal answer...but no...
"Can we have a snack!?!?!"
Have I mentioned I was tired this morning?
