Weird crazy day. Work is so hectic and strange lately. I can't even begin to wrap my mind around it. I am trying not to let it make me batty and trying to take a minute to just breathe deeply when I leave work and tell myself that now it is done. For better or worse, done for that day. Some days I do pretty well at that.
Days like today not so much. Partly as I had to bring the kids home with me as K got called in to do a shift at the clubhouse due to another staff worker being ill. Partly because I had to go to do a mailing for my job after I punched out and got home with said kids 20 minutes later than usual. I have to say though, the kids were really good. But no time for breathing and "shedding" work.
I whipped together a quick supper of spaghetti and veggie meatballs, parmesan toast created out of some slightly stale bread, and strawberry sundaes for dessert. I totally caved on eating locally this week, falling under the thrall of a large lucious looking box of them at the grocery store. They were pricey but surprisingly delicious.
Fiona is not calling tonight. She had an altercation with another student and is expected to return to the great school in the city but not in time to chat tonight. We are going in for a visit this month and we will have another off site component. This time our options have expanded from walking in nearby parks. Jane sent me an email today suggesting about 10 different things. The only one I said no to was a toy store. Aren't I the party pooper? But seriously, Jane what were you thinking! LOL I said yes to Barnes and Noble, yes to a farm, yes to a museum, yes to a planetarium, and a bunch of other things. I suggested that she narrow it to the 2 or 3 she felt most viable for Fiona and then let Fiona choose. It would give Fi a bit of a feel of "hosting" and I think that is good for her. And as I told Jane, I can spin anything to make it seem fun to the kids. I mean if I can get kids up and out the door wanting to go grocery shopping every Saturday at 7 a.m. don't you think seeing something new in the Big City is going to rock their little worlds? LOL
