What I want to do over the weekend and what I have to do are usually two separatelists. I'm feeling like I'm running out of time, with the monday morning routine loomingominously. My youngest daughter is full with pre-college planning, waiting for every acceptance letter, even though it seems like she just started high school. Monday rolls around too fast and the thought of how to honestly answer, "how was your weekend?" is #thestruggle. My younger sisters' list of weekend happening includes cleaning her garden, washing the dog and spending time in her pottery studio. Her husband and sonwill be on a boy scout trip, and she is planning on soaking up the "me" time. My neighbor has three under 8; she'll spend tonight getting groceries doing some weekendmovie watching, baking and laundry. She ﬁnds no plans are the best with so many littleneeds. She's smart and probably listening to you right now!
She could be Dropping off a forgotten musical instrument to her child's school A cafeteria mom On a ﬁeld trip An Eye Doctor
Right now she could be Frying bacon Fixing her Bluetooth Looking for a band aid Packing for a trip
She vent.. "How many times in one season do I have to remind my kids to wipe their feet?"

Then www.livingtree.com could be the answer to your scheduling nightmares. It's a new free web and mobile app for parents that provides anintegrated scheduling system that's sharable among members of a family and members of your school system (teachers, coaches, tutors, etc).
