Who's going to tackle Tuesday with me?

Good morning!

Got my mammogram done yesterday and about 8pm, my wonderful doctor/friend called to say she had just received the report and everything looked fine. They almost always want me to come back for further testing, so I was pretty thrilled to get a good report!

Today looks to be a beautiful day with sunny skies and a high of 80.

  • school
  • office work (a few bills, organizing, order office supplies)
  • post office
  • vet appt. at 2:00 for staple removal - yay!
  • definitely need to vacuum. Floors need mopping, too, but that might not happen today.
  • laundry - a few loads of sheets and towels
  • dinner: General Tso's tofu

Work: I'm drafting about 37 motions in my white collar case today. 11 down, 16 to go.

Home front: I checked in with and reminded DD about picking up a volunteer application at the library this week, found out which day she plans on going, and asked her how her day is going, and asked her to find her life-hack pencil grip so we can go get the insulated tubing to make more of them. Then I dropped in to the Echo to see how DS's day was going and remind him to do his summer activity sheets this week.

DH home today.

We have DD5 cousin who is also 5.

Went to open gym. A place for kids to run around and play with gymnastic stuff.

Lunch at DQ

LOL a place for kids. It has art center, dance area, dress up area, books, trampoline that covers a section of floor, etc. We bumped into their other cousin.

All three girls then went to the pool.

Ice cream then only one cousin home with us for a little while so they can play.

Take cousin home.

Get DD ready for a bath an early bedtime. She will drop soon after cousin leaves. Very active day today, just the way i like it.

Jean, the way you phrased "squeezed into the chiropractor" made me giggle 

I filled 7 bags, 2 boxes for Goodwill while listening to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.   Ds is dropping them off, picking up lunch for us.  I showered, put on comfy clothes, contemplating my next move.  Strike two on school option for dd; the center by us closed down.  She wants to attend 1-2 days a week for a few hours, but I'm struggling to find something.  Our local school insists that she attend 5 days, no exceptions.  She's just not there yet.

I need to take pics of the curriculum I found lurking in some boxes, list on Craigslist. I'll give it a week, then donate to library.  Just want a clean workspace.
