I’ve certainly had an interesting week!
Monday, my husband had a doctor’s appointment as well as an errand or two to run before and after. I spent all morning in Class Connect with our daughter.
Tuesday, my husband had other business to take care of in town, and he had to leave early. Again, I spent the morning in Class Connect with our daughter, and completing household chores between classes.
Wednesday was our daughter’s doctor’s appointment, so after Class Connect sessions were over and lunch and homework were done, we left, and ran some errands after.
It was Thursday that was the ‘doozy’. I found myself facing a new milestone, and living it two different ways at once. Well, three different ways. I recall my own experience (when I was her age), I’m reliving it through my daughter, and I’m relating instinctively. It’s awesome, but I also feel as if I’ve aged several years overnight, more so because I discovered it the night before. We were both tired that day and she didn’t feel up to going to gymnastics that evening.
Come Friday morning, my dad’s brother stopped in for a visit since he was in the area. It’s been 14 years since I last saw my uncle, and times have certainly changed the both of us. However, it was interesting, some of the conversations we had during his brief visit. I learned a lot, about our family, about him, and about myself. In addition to my uncle visiting, my husband had another business errand to run early that morning, so while he was taking care of that, I was reclaiming my daughter’s attention during breakfast to get her ready for school. She’d never met him before now, so naturally she would be socially interested.
Now here I am.
It’s Saturday, the sun is shining, and tomorrow’s weather is calling for rain which pretty much guarantees I won’t be able to work outside. I feel the need to re-energize, and being outside, in the fresh country air, beautifying the yard, cultivating the ground, it’s therapeutic to me.
That reminds me, I can’t wait to get started on my vegetable garden!
