My desk reflects the busy week. It’s a haphazard jumble of paper stacks the used to make sense and random items that don’t belong to me including a broken cell phone and a Hello Kitty bracelet.
At least I unearthed the checkbook.
Last weekend (Thursday to Monday) a few relatives were here for a visit, so prior to Thursday was devoted to getting ready for company (even though they stayed in a hotel) while still keeping my regular plates spinning. Just one of my many party tricks!
And since they left, it’s just been busy.
If we aren’t driving kids to music lessons, we’re sitting on a field somewhere watching practice or a game. We’re in meetings, coordinating schedules and working far too many hours.
My biggest achievement this week was ordering two cell phones to replace two broken phones (one due to overuse and one due to an encounter with the washing machine). I spent an afternoon on the phone getting that arranged and I only wish I were exaggerating. I spoke to four different people in three different departments.
But hey! It’s Friday night! Work’s done for the week and I get to sleep in tomorrow. The weather is supposed to be lovely, as usual, and someone else is cooking dinner tomorrow night. Grace has a soccer game tomorrow afternoon and a birthday party on Sunday.
Now, to sleep to dream about free time.
