Good morning! Safe travels, Jean! We found out yesterday that the part needed to fix car #1 is on back order. The dealer will be getting us a rental car. dh is planning to look at a few cars this afternoon to replace car#2. I will say that that the car deprivation has been good for dd2-she is home, resting, playing games, getting her work done. A much-needed detox from her team friends. "Silver-lining Jen" is my new nickname.

  • coffee/paper
  • write/Jen things
  • daily chores
  • keep ds2 sorting and organizing
  • take dd1 to pt
  • dh to look at cars-might go with him
  • figure out dinner (pasta salad? or check freezer)
  • hang out at home (ds1 might come over)

Have a great day!

Ha - I forgot it was Wednesday.  Apparently I liked Tuesday so much that I wanted to do it again.

My housemate asked if I was planning to take out the garbage.  Whoops.  Well I did take it out, not sure if I was too late ....  I didn't take out anything from the basement because (a) late timing and (b) no treelawn with the construction project still going on.  I put the garbage bins in front of my neighbor's house ... hope they don't mind.


  • Finish some work deadlines in the wee hours.
  • Slept Idunno 4 hours?
  • Kids up & off to camp with packed lunches.
  • Took out the garbage.
  • Cleaned the kitchen.
  • Put away some laundry.
  • Coffee.
  • Paid driver.  (She is doing all the driving today.)
  • Some calendar work.
  • Got caught up on emails, social media etc.
  • Made this post.

To do:

  • "Work" work - I am behind on a number of some "soft" deadlines.
  • The Terminix guy is coming?  Not sure if he needs to come in or not.
  • Call sister re procuring horse bridle somehow during the week.
  • Call Sylvan re make-ups.
  • Some logistics re my kid's gymnastic shoes for tonight, which I think are buried in the trunk of my car, which is halfway down the street ....
  • A little reading, exercise, housework, might do a load of laundry.
  • Figure out what is needed for kids' school papers - usual due date is August 1 but they have changed the system ....
  • Might need to do a Fed Ex run, not sure.
  • Kids return home about 9ish.
  • Vision therapy.
  • Read-aloud(s).
  • Whatever I'm forgetting.
  • Kids to bed.
  • Work or sleep.
