I don’t think that I have gone this long without writing a little something. I’ve been working. And I’ve gone to work related meetings on my days off. I’ve also gone to non-work related meetings on my days off. The exterior home improvements are almost done but you know how it goes – there is always some little thing that has to be fixed or improved upon which involves telling the contractor the job wasn’t done quite as it should be. Good times. I have sat by the pool 4 nights a week waiting for swim practice to end. I have taken kids to music, helped with homework. Cooked. A little. Cleaned. Not at all. I have finally figured out what to do with the generous donations to Dave’s fund in the way of scholarships. (This is not as straightforward as you might think.) I have created the electronic invite for Dave’s party. And I have looked through lots and lots of pictures in order to send the best ones to my extremely talented brother in law who is creating a slide show for the big event. I firmed up details with the caterer and the lighting guy, and I signed Grant up for his behind the wheel class (hallelujah).
I wrote down this laundry list of things for the sole purpose of reminding myself, should I ever forget, that I am a frigging rock star. Being the only parent sucks. But I am killing it.
