Funny how some days can begin without a plan, and turn into busy, super-scheduled days where chaos can spring from around any corner.
A quick trip to drop off some paperwork to my co-worker turned into a 3-hour visit & meeting. Then, since I was close, I decided to make a quick run into Costco. It was not so quick, and kind of expensive, but it was so late in the day that I was willing to forfeit my post-shopping Polish at the Costco cafe! After Costco I decided it was finally time to buy the wrist braces Logan has been pestering me to get. I have tendonitis in both wrists since about 3 weeks after Pie came along, and loading the Costco boxes into the car did me in. So I went to Target. And while I was there, I had a return to make at a store in the same shopping center…
Finally we got home, I began unpacking the groceries and unloading the dishwasher when I got a call from the ED at the organization I volunteer with. The grant that was due in a couple hours hadn’t been completed. So, with the milk still out on the counter, I ran to the computer to begin working.
Now it’s time to start dinner – but I need to finish putting away the groceries and load the dishwasher. And Pie needs some attention from me – she was passed around a lot at the office but hasn’t gotten her snuggle time.
I wish I had had more time to write the grant, to fold the laundry piling up on the couch, to clean up, relax, maybe take a shower. But today I can just hope that I get through the things that need to be done. The laundry will be there tomorrow.
