What does a Pittsburgh housewife do on a Monday you ask? Let's see...
Get up at 6:50AM and realize it is still dark outside,so you can't possibly get out from under the 2 blankets and 1 quilt to go out and run in the 10 degree weather.
7:20AM is now light out. Get up and get Princess Butterball who has been up since before 6:00AM. Go potty, plop her in bed with Daddy and then put on about 3 layers to go out and run in still 10 degree weather. At least it was not snowing.
7:40AM start uphill. Complete W2D1 of C25K, 2.32 miles with an incline increase of 118 feet. Got to love living on a hill. Always have and always will.
By 9:00AM, breakfast is eaten, showers taken, 2 cups of coffee drank, numerous emails sent out as I start planning for the 2010 Buddy Walk(r) in October.
Color with crayons, color with markers, dress dolls, have a tea party, play candy land, play soccer in the house, have a kazoo parade and then make lunch.
Maeve takes a nap, Sean leaves for work, and I now have about 7 loads of laundry to do, more emails to send, gotta hang on facebook, check out ebay and have another cup of coffee all in an hour and a half.
4:00PM start lasagna, read books, play doll house and watch the news. Eat dinner, do dishes, fold laundry, vacuum, have snacks and before you know it, it's 9:00PM and time for Maeve to go to bed. Get her school things ready, do more laundry, realize I didn't blog yesterday and here I am. Typing away and waiting for my Officer to come home.
Pretty boring huh? Nothing like the Real Housewives of Orange County or Atlanta or wherever. Nothing glamorous here. But I do have two people at home who love me to pieces! I think that is probably the best of all!

This is my attempt to share the behind the scenes of a real housewife who idolizes Martha Stewart, follows in the family footsteps in the art of sewing, navigates the world of special needs and tries to keep her head above water.
