OOTD: Iron Chef Prairie Girl Meets Her Inner Yoda

Today I managed to survive a conference call, take my tribe to the homeschool park day and also to Orchestra.  Doesn’t sound impressive? Keep in mind that orchestra requires 5 music stands and 5 violins to be taken to the car, transported, and relocated to a classroom through hallways lined with the distraction of friends!  It also includes assisting my 5-year-old non-reader and 8-year-old autistic son through the hour.  I signed up to learn alongside them, but my own violin has still never made it out of the case.

Whatever Wednesday: Moms Need a Break and 3 Inventions We May Not Want

~One of my recent time-sucker situations~

We’ll take that  extra 35 seconds of daily relief on the couch,

Maybe an extra minute of deep yoga breathing before crawling out of bed in the morning,

The chance to shave BOTH legs today, even!

Yeah, we like time-saving schemes, for sure.
