Good morning.







-pick up for cleaning people tomorrow


-school pickup

-baseball for oldest (fingers crossed he wants to drive himself - it is a long drive and a lot of traffic so he may be too nervous and I may have to go with him)

-dinner (chicken marsala for kids, whole30 marinated chicken for me)


ETA:  and there is never a dull moment.  DH has left for a business trip and the dog, who chased a squirrel this morning, hurt himself and is limping.  Cannot put his front paw down.  He does get up off the floor and gimps into the kitchen as soon as anyone opens the refrigerator so I'm guessing it can't be too bad.

Good morning! It's a muggy morning after a night of thunderstorms. The temp is supposed to get up to 87* today, which is unusually hot for May. We were still getting frost last week, so it is quite a drastic swing in the weather.

Good morning! I took ds2, ds3, and dmil to the airport early and I am currently waiting at Starbucks for the brake place to get back to me with an estimate. With an old car and lots of miles, you are always waiting for the terminal diagnosis! I can wait a long time here and no one needs the car until 4:45 pm. So today was the day.


To do:

Wait, read, enjoy my iced tea

Other than that, no idea


Have a great day!

MIL is still in the hospital and we can't ward off the hordes of Filipino relatives who want to visit.  Their hearts are all very loving and generous but MIL who needs to sleep and sleep and sleep will not be able to.  But they will not listen to dh or his siblings.

Well, I got a few things out and lived through a conference call.


Unexpectedly needed to drop everything and drive someone to the airport in the middle of the work day.


Now I feel like I'm forgetting something I'm supposed to do ....

Finished all the laundry and dishes.


Fixed the dishwasher.  Actually it wasn't broken; there was a short, and nobody thought to check for that until tonight.  :P


Kids did homework pretty much all evening.  After all that work, I let them watch a little TV even though it was past bedtime.  All work and no play ....


I have lots of work I could be doing, but I think I will sleep instead.  Tomorrow I should be free of conference calls and my boss is out of town, so hopefully the stress level will be low and I'll just crank out a bunch of work.
