Today in List Form
One thing after another happened all day long. None of them were unexpected things, they were just all thinky, important, and urgent. So I did not get many spaces. Instead I:
Managed school departures and arrivals for four kids.
Put together and ordered our annual Schlock thank you postcard.
Began work on the 2013 Schlock calendar, because this year we want to customize the calendar pages rather than just dropping in some pre-made calendar pages.
Did the accounting.
Met with Kiki’s art teacher to talk about Kiki and what she can do to get some scholarships.
Helped Patch assemble a display for his science fair project.
Listened to Gleek’s newly-learned, short, repetitive song about manatees about a bajillion times.
Gave Kiki the tools and materials to matte her art for an art show.
Made dinner, while simultaneously running homework time and cooking a double batch of cookies all on a deadline because we needed to get out the door for cub scout pack meeting.
Attended pack meeting.
Came home to finish cooking the cookies and realized that all the cookies are ruined because in the chaos I did not add baking soda or salt. Threw away all the cookies.
Now I am tired and feel discouraged because I made that lovely list only two days ago about how I was going to make good use of my time, but right now all I want to do is shut off my brain and stop thinking about today.
