As I mentioned, I went to schools six times yesterday. The Mister did the last of it, saving me one round-trip. Woot!
I got Sadie’s pill and met a whole new dog at the vet. I dunno what kinda dog it was — if a pibble took a lot of steroids and did a lot of lifting, leash like a tow chain. Enormous head at my hip, tiny ears. Beautiful, happy beast, whatever it was. I would like to meet new happy dogs every day, wouldn’t you?
Then I picked up three kids from two schools. I decided to serve the soup so they had dinner at a reasonable hour (eat faster!) then off we went again. I had to drop two kids a bit early so I could get to a meeting.
See, I was supposed to attend an informational meeting, but since I attended that very same meeting a year ago, and I was basically an empty shell of person, I decided it was not necessary. I went to the meeting early and walked up to the speaker all, “Hello. I so enjoyed your presentation last year, but I would like to go home now. If I could get the registration info, that’d be great.”
“Sure,” he said, handing me the papers.
I felt the eyes of a hundred parents on my back as I left.

I went home and found myself with two glorious hours to enjoy before bedtime!
I went to bed at 9:30. 9:30! I know my bed was concerned.
I fell asleep around 11 and woke up this morning minutes before my 5am alarm. I did that thing where yes it’s still dark, but did I oversleep?
This morning is wet and cool, and smells like fall. Mmm fall! Orange and yellow leaves dot the shiny pavement everywhere.
I’ll get Moo off to school and then I have big plans to be at home until I collect Sassy. I’m going to iron and do laundry and bake a lazy day pie. Maybe give myself a lil mani pedi attention. Maybe snap some pics.
The Mister is going to bring home ingredients for tacos. Then we will all be together, eating the tacos. Together. At home.
I’ve already given this Tuesday credit for probably being better than yesterday. If Tuesday wants to impress me, it should offer me a new dog to pet. Course, this dog makes me smile the most.
How’d you survive your Monday? You think this Tuesday has potential or nah?
