Apparently things are not publishing…
You are going to have to believe me on this, but, Wednesday I put up a ‘wordless Wednesday’ post and yesterday I did a 3 things Thursday that while not curing cancer or marching on Moscow – I was wondering why I got zero ‘dings’ of approval. Something must be amiss with my phone app for publishing. I suppose you get what you pay for.
To fill you all in, Wednesday was this
A picture of Zoe home ‘sick’. She actually did have a horrible gacky sounding cough, but, so does nearly everyone and in my opinion not a reason to stay home. However, Zoe is nearly never sick and with both sisters having sick days in the past week she needed some quality time. She also did wake up in the middle of the night congested and since that is so rare for her it did freak her out and she was of the opinion that the end was near. Daddy decided she should stay home and while it was not something I would have done, it was a good call because she needed the quiet day. I gave her tea and fruit and she stayed cozy all day. At one point she did get bored and said she wished she was at school and that she did feel much better…
I do want to also point out that I now have a milk pitcher! The thrift store finally had something of the right size for kids to pour. It isn’t gorgeous but it also isn’t ugly (well, too ugly) so that means that if it breaks I won’t be sad.
Thursday turned out to be a very very busy and fun day. I started out with the normal bustle but then went directly to coffee with the moms club. We had a nice chat that included the startling news that our city council is trying to get rid of the Police Department in Forest Lake! I would like to see their numbers for rational why, but, I’m against taking away one of the reasons we have such a good community! Next one of the moms and I hit up a second hand store to find some workout gear for Lars. He is actually going to 2 or 3 classes a week and his current collection featured sweat pants from the early 90’s complete with holes and paint stains. He had some nice stuff but not enough… Before now he had been working out in a dojo so he had a Gi (or 7) and now he has decent workout stuff again and that prime specimen of a sweat pant is now in the rag bin.
There was still more for Thursday! I had a normal afternoon with Fiona and housework etc and then at 5 Lars and I went to a serious ab workout class (in his new gear!). He took charge of the kids and I went off to a School Board committee meeting. I had to skip the actual board meeting because I had another board meeting for MOMS club to run over to followed by dinner and drinks with the Moms. Busy busy night and way more than three things.
Today was American Presidental inauguration day. I’m divided on the president. I believe in the office and the system and like the monarchy – the citizen that takes the crown BECOMES the Crown and the office. He is a controversial figure for sure but I tuned in and listened to his speech. This is me at the moment of the presidential oath of office. Things here are about the same.
Now for a weekened of no plans, but, I have things to do always! 2 kids and 2 sleepovers to start and fill in the details as we go.
