Can you still nurse when you're 80?

Today was certainly an action-packed day! I got up (and yes, even showered before 8am- no applause, please), dropped the kids off at school, went to my meeting for my new Young Women calling (excellent!), went to get Ava's immunization's, discovered I left her shot record at home, went to Wal-Mart to get a new battary for my watch, took Aidan to school, stopped by Aldi's for some cheap flowers, came home, called 8 different florists to see if they would donate any wilting flowers (nope), called some nursing homes to see if we could come and deliver flowers to some of the residents for May Day (today), got a 'yes!', agreed to babysit and bring along 2 other girls, found the kids' shot records, picked up the kids from school, went to Aldi's to buy more flowers, picked up Aidan from school, went to Parkview hospital to get Ava and Aidan shots (thought I'd throw him in there too, since he's due for his kiddie-garden shots), found out that they only do shots on Tuesdays and Thursdays (of course, this is after I have unloaded everyone and we're inside), found a different place to do the shots, sat on Aidan for his shots, was baffled by Ava when she smiled through all of her shots (didn't even flinch! Just kept that big toothy grin!), drove by the Hamilton House where we would be delivering the May day baskets, made it back just in time to see my friends pulling up to drop off their girls, Scott threw some fish sticks in the oven, I gave the kids the assignment to write some cards, I folded up 18 papers for baskets, cut up and arranged the flowers, wrapped them in wet paper towels, and put them in plastic baggies, put everything in containers for the trip, gathered our brood into two vehicles, delivered the flowers (the place and the people were outstanding!!), dropped the girls off at their house, got the kids into their jammies, said our family prayer, ate some dinner, called my Mom, filled out some camp forms, called Toni to beg some Ava babysitting out of her (okay, I didn't really have to beg at all), and sat down to write this blog.

Believe it or not, after all that was said and done, while I was gone no magic fairy appeared to clean my house and do my laundry! In fact, it looks just like it did this morning!!! Oh well, there's always tomorrow. I don't do much anyway!

End note: When we told Aidan we were going to a nursing home where there were lots of Grandma's and Grandpa's, he wanted to know who they were nursing!! It's a good thing I wasn't drinking milk, or it all would have come out my nose!
