Who's going to tackle Wednesday with me?

Recommended Posts

Started out as a busy but normal day

 Was thrown a  curveball.  Will have to see how life plays out  in the next few days.. weeks....

certainly threw my day plans out the window

Early orthodontist appt
Pick up milk
School
Appt at 1:15
Piano lessons
Trader Joe's? 
Dinner on the go! 
Kids to church activities: choir and youth Christmas party

 

Contemplating school for Ds (for next semester anyway) ...considering options. I think it would be good for him to see what it is like and I think he and I could use a break from each other.

Howdy.  Happy Wednesday!

  • I slept enough I guess, though I did that whole alarm - snooze thing from 5am to 7:30.
  • I was supposed to review homework last night, but my kid was so late bringing it to me that I put it off and went to sleep ... bad idea ... only got part of the review done.  Oh well.
  • Gathered and packed school library books to return.
  • Kids off running to the school bus exactly on time.  Whatever.  I'm over this morning crap already.
  • Work discussion before my coffee again.  Did not make me more efficient!
  • Took out the garbage.
  • Did a little work in the backyard & garage.
  • Cleaned the kitchen.
  • Partial lunch order so the kids don't get yelled at again.
  • Calendar work.
  • A little filing.
  • Caught up on emails, news, social media.
  • Coffee.
  • Roughly a mile of brisk walking.
  • Made an Amazon order.

To do:

  • Lots of client work!
  • Yoga and practicing my TKD form.
  • More walking.
  • Some AHG work?
  • Try to get organized where I can ...
  • Kids will be driven around by the driver tonight.  Kid2 has horse riding, Kid1 has math tutoring, cheer, and trumpet lesson.
  • Push kids re homework and AHG work.  And showers!  What is it with young teens and hygiene?
  • Clean kid1's trumpet?
  • Laundry?
  • Whatever else gets done.

Coffee!

Dh is on the road with a load of lambs to the sale yard. He'll drop them off, leave the trailer in Poncha Springs, and then head to the hospital in Denver for scans, stay overnight, then cancer infusion all day, pick up the trailer, and head home tomorrow.

Order of the Arrow meeting

trash out--almost forgot!

write kids

mail letters

take dd out to lunch

drop off books to a grandma friend--her 8yo is out of things to read!

walk

sweep

laundry is started, more to go

finish painting dd's nutcracker. I want to get shiny spray to finish it--all I have is matte. 

talk to the lady at the Catholic Church--figured out why she was so confused. The Scouts meet in the basement of the church, NOT the Parish Hall. I couldn't figure out why our food pantry food sort was being such a big deal. I assured he that we are cleaning up our corner of the basement--it is a mess!

Realized today that my life is very odd: I checked a duck for bumblefoot. I think it's a slipped tendon. Took photos for dd of her sorting cattle on her slightly crazy 2yo gelding. Went to an Order of the Arrow meeting for Scouts. Dealt with a crazy Scout mom--no we're not going to provide a uniform for your kid to get Eagle in! Forced dh to take scrapies tags to the sale yard--yep, they had to be tagged--it's a federal law. Suggested to dd that she get her dad a new kitten for Christmas (what was I thinking???). Proofread a grant proposal for a canoe. Congratulated dd on her 1000th mile of running. Looked through a zillion photos and actually found one of dd on a ship off the coast of Japan. Looked at Smith & Wesson pistols. Printed out five recommendation letters. Walked 10 miles. Admired a friend's wedding photos. Dumped mouse traps. And finished the evening by watching video of St. Barbara's Day--the patron saint of field artillery! Norwich does a big celebration involving very loud rock music and shooting off WWII howitzers!
