Today we have one aikido class, two play dates, one ballet technique and one pointe class, one birthday party, one Nutcracker rehearsal, and grocery shopping. Andrew has to take Big Guy somewhere this afternoon. Oh -- and Eldest is going to meet a friend in the afternoon, too. And we don't have a present for the party yet.
This would have driven me crazy a decade ago. What keeps me sane nowadays is that I finally understand that logistics are puzzles, not problems. Problems are things that involve life-changing decisions or events. Having a health issue is a problem. Being broke is a problem. Losing your job is a problem. How to get everyone to everywhere they need to go is a puzzle. No one's going to die because of scheduling challenges (unless I stress out and commit murder as a result!)
