I had delusions of grandeur I tell you! (That is certainly not out of the ordinary for me.) The kids went back to school today. I thought I was going to go to school, help in the computer lab for about 45 minutes, leave, get my run on and then clean my filthy house and maybe write a blog. Did I mention that my little petrie dishes went back to school…can I get a hallelujah, amen?!?! I love my kids but cleaning house when they are home on break is nothing short of futile.
So, this is how my day went… Woke up to a text from my neighbor that I missed last night. Her daughter (who recently had foot surgery) was being admitted at Tripler due to an infection in her foot with surgery scheduled for the next morning. I immediately offered dinner. On the way to school my lovely teen mentioned that she forgot her ID. We turned around. We got to school as the bugle rang. Thankfully the teachers were lenient… It was that or they saw the crazed look in my eye and decided it wasn’t the best day for a tardy. As I prepared to walk my little friends to the computer lab for 45 minutes of joyfully telling them not to click that… I realized it’s not computer day. It is in fact articulation day. That means 3+ hours in the library with kindergarten classes plus recess. Shelving books, writing names, wiping noses, praying I don’t get sick… I leave and jump in the car to run to the store for dinner supplies. Get that… and a few other things. I start dinner and then car line.
Car line to Mount Washmore and more dinner prep… My day was chockfull. I feel like nothing was accomplished. Anyone else feel like that? At least if I’m going to run on a hamster wheel, the location of the hamster wheel is pretty much perfect.
I’ll leave you with a shot of aloha as your cussing me for complaining about my schedule while you’re freezing with a worse schedule than mine… Just come visit. It’s like the bumper stickers say…”Relax. This isn’t the mainland.” I think I need to keep repeating that.
