  1. That is a busy day by the numbers. This was an interesting way to document your day.

  2. This is a clever way to record one’s day! Give yourself a pat on the back for having a very full and rewarding day…so much accomplished. And thank you for the reminder about laundry…I am enjoying my first snow day in two years and really could be less idle!! Thanks for sharing.

    A very busy, productive day. I must say, I am most impressed by the laundry being washed, dried, AND folded before school. That would be a HUGE accomplishment in my home!

    What a day! You need more than 6 hours to recuperate your energy.

    And here I am, thinking that I had had a busy day! Whew! Glad you made time for an ice cream treat, though.

  6. Yikes! That is one full day.
