The Week in Which I Go in 50 Directions
My life this week seems like this dandelion puff ball. Looking so together and pretty until a puff of wind comes and one by one the little pieces start blowing away willy nilly where ever the breeze carries them. Well my breeze of the week is more like a roaring wind in the form of 8 kids here this week. It's one of those overlapping weeks on holidays where everyone is here and it is busy. And loud. Oh, so loud.
We've got crafts to do, slip and slide to, well, slip and slide in, balls to bounce, bikes to ride, playgrounds to visit. And it's going to be a hot week. So I forsee some quiet time moments after lunch happening too.
And my out of work life is really busy this week too. Yes, I really do have a life outside of work. And that is involving the lake, a picnic or two, taking my son fishing and maybe for a float down the river. That is if it's not too terribly hot. I want to enjoy it. Not feel like a chicken under a broiler. All of the above involve a book in hand and maybe a tall iced tea. A car we're delivering to my oldest girl in another province needs registering and licencing and inspecting.
You might say my week is plumb full. But thought I'd check in and just let you all know I am alive. Just in case someone out there was wondering. ;v)
