Wow, what a day it’s been.
I should’ve known though. My horoscope said to get everything done that I could before lunchtime because nothing was going to go according to plan after that.
Well, it was spot on.
I got a call from Little Bit around mid-day that her glasses were broken. Drop everything, run down to the school, pick her up, get her glasses fixed, race back home for a conference call, help her with her school work and homework, start supper preparations…
SuperMan calls and says he will pick up the big girls from school so I think maybe I’ve dodged the bullet and that was the end of the derailment for the day…
oh, you are so naiive, I think much later in the day.
SuperMan DOES indeed get the girls and Little Bit and I are able to run an errand in place of sitting in carpool.
But just as I’m putting the orzo in the soup for dinner I get another call. This time I have to go rescue SuperMan as he’s swapping rental vehicles (and companies) and needs a ride between places. In rush hour, in the rain, in the dark.
It was a doozy of a day for sure.
My family is home and we are all safe and dry and warm. And for that, I am thankful. The derailed day could’ve been much worse. Instead, it was just a Monday. I told the girls, who had “Mondays” of their own today, that we all have them and that the good thing is that they don’t last long and we get to go to sleep and try again tomorrow.
Much to catch up with you on – like the accident(s) that SuperMan has had, the soup(s) I’ve been making and the knitting projects I’ve been up to. I’ll try to post again soon and give you another update.
But for now, I’m going to knit, sip some tea and be glad that Monday’s almost over.
