I’m getting unreasonably excited about things in my future. Which, while exciting, also make me very anxious. Next week we go to my parents’, which means eating and drinking and extra hands for the kids and swimming in the pool and Disney. (But then I remember having to drive all three kids and two dogs on my own, because Ash will already be down there. And then I have a minor panic attack.)
At the end of the summer session, my boss always has a picnic for the new people and that is so awesome. People bring food and we swim and it’s just… nice. (But then I remember how much work must be put in before any of that fun can be had.)
And of course, come October, I’ll be in Hawaii. But SO much has to get done before then I can barely bring myself to think about it. SO, I’ll take things one day at a time and try not to be grumpy. Though I was grumpy this weekend and I don’t know why. Friday was fun: Ash and I had Mexican and beer and decided not to see a movie. We were going to walk some trails but instead, we took a nap.
We didn’t do an awful lot on the weekend; we ate and played outside and shopped a bit. I did get some cleaning done and I worked out. We had Momo’s pizza for lunch on Saturday and Elliot played at his friend’s. But since today is his last day of school, it feels like we’re on the edge of change. You know, that odd summer time. This week and some of next, I have nothing for him to do so he comes to my office. And he does OK, for a little while. He plays and watches movies and reads but then gets whiny. Thankfully he has camp after we get back from O-town.
So yeah, that’s what we’re up to and now it’s time for music!
I’ve been feeling James Taylor again lately because XM has made an entire channel. Here’s one of my favorites.
And I’ve been feeling this Jimmy and Little Feat song too.
