I was trying to show off how responsible and posty I was. And then I didn't actually manage to publish the post (the previous one where I touted my ability to post two days in a row) And then my fingers developed an allergy to keyboards for a week. Geez, a week?
So, here's my having a go at a recap (mostly for my benefit-- hate to be a crashing bore)
Academic Performances for kids' school. It was very very hot. I got a replay of what it was like last summer when I was perpetually overheating. I wish there was some way to tweak ones' internal thermostat. VERY hectic day. 8:30 - 10:00 second grade performance. Then off to take friend to the doctor. Then 1:30 to 3:30 fifth grade performances.
The kids did great.
The three-year old did not have a melt down. Or a nap.
I crashed as soon as I got home in the afternoon and slept until it was time to go see Carrie Newcomer. It was awesome. I am such a fan-girl. I was quite grinny.
Something must have happened this day. I took kids to piano. Then something else must have happened. OH YES! This was the time that I happened to notice while driving the kids home from piano that it was a city-wide clean-up day for Saint Paul and I happened to have my brother's truck.
So we loaded all the crap from the garage and a fair amount of crap from the basement into the truck and spouse and son spent hours and hours waiting in line to get rid of it for cheap.
Went to meeting. It was nice, although there seemed to be some difficulty for intense child #2. It was one of those times that I wished we were all a little less EMOTIONALLY EXUBERANT because it goes equally far in both directions. Up, down and sidewise.
Afternoon I gardened and gardened and gardened. I created giant piles of moldy leaves and branches and dead old perrenial bits. I fell into a sound slumber. When I awoke, the yard-waste fairy had visited my house and whisked away all the debris! It was awesome.
Evening I helped a friend with details for a trip home to England to see her family. It is nice to feel useful. Even if I also felt a little bossy and pushy. When those things are backed up with self-righteousness they feel just fine.
took meds every single day
exerted myself out of doors every day
Ummm... nope. That's all I got.
Grateful Crap: energy to do all this stuff. Even if i
