Dunno if it would help or not, but some of these might be able to be done at night. Specifically making lunch for the next day, getting one of those alarm coffee makers so it automatically starts brewing coffee at 7 or whatever time you program it for, setting out backpacks and jackets (and shoes) near the door, and setting out clothes (both for you and the boys) for the next day.

Sometimes I manage to get things done the night before, but usually I am just too disorganized. What I really want is a staff to do this shit for me and wake me when it's all done. Is that too much to ask?

I'm tired after just reading the list.

Like Green said, I am anal about getting ready for work the night before. It is the thing that keeps me sane. That and the boys can pick out their own clothes now.

Hmm, What is Mr Dog doing while you are running around like a headless chicken? (sorry chickens!) He could take over lunches or breakfasts, maybe?
