My Weekend Resume

What a whirlwind weekend. And we are just hitting the home stretch. If I were to create a resume reflecting this weekend alone it would be:
1-Nutrition specialist (I've been to Bi-Lo Grocery store twice already and forgot I am making dinner for guests on Monday night so I'll be going back there tomorrow after church)
2- Musical sound check. As the praise band played at the church spring fling today I shouted "that's too loud!"
3- This is the weirdest one, Tattoo Artist. I ran the airbrush tattoo "parlor" at the festivities today. I brushed dragons, roses, snakes, dolphins, crosses, even those little hearts with "mom" inside of them on the kids (and a few adults)
4- Personal shopper. I helped Britt pick out the perfect bathing suit for her trip home next week. If you've ever shopped for a bathing suit you can imagine how much work that can be.
5- Chef. I made a delicious ice cream sandwich dessert for dinner with the Mathis' tonight. It's really easy.
24 ice cream sandwiches
16 oz. fudge ice cream topping
8 oz. Peanut Butter
2 big tubs cool whip
3/4 c. chopped peanuts
In a bowl melt hot fudge and peanut butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds so you can mix it all up. Let it cool down while you:
Layer half ice cream sandwiches in baking dish.
Spread half of the cooled fudge mixture over ice cream sandwiches
Spread 1 tub of cool whip over that
Sprinkle on half the peanuts
Repeat the layers with the other 12 ice cream sandwiches, fudge, cool whip and peanuts. Put in freezer for a few hours to harden up.
6-Creative writer. I need to think of things to say to you while we wait for the final copy of our home study to come so that we can get things moving!
7- Mom in practice. By wearing all these hats, I think it's good practice for being a supermom! We've all seen those "Mom Salary" spreadsheets. If moms really got paid for all the work they did-It would look something like this according to CNN Money.....

Here are 10 top duties mothers perform, the time they spend on them every week, and the annual salary they could generate.
Housekeeper -22.1 hours
Cook -13.6
Day care center teacher -15.7
Laundry machine operator -6.7
CEO -4.2
Facilities manager -5.8
Van driver -4.2
Psychologist -3.9
Computer operator -9.1
Janitor -6.3
Total weekly hours -91.6
There you go. Moms everywhere- I give you a raise. I am so tired and I don't even have kids yet!
