Hmph. Well, it seems that if your kids go to school on Thursday, then they usually go on Friday too. Another free day. This time, I’m prepared! (Though I must tell you that I really enjoyed August Rush yesterday. A wonderful movie that I’m sure will be on my shelf someday.
I just returned from Massage Envy where I used the last of my birthday gift certificate. Man oh man… I hope Mr. Right decides to pamper me again like that! It’s been heavenly, not to mention completely relaxing. I loved every pressure point moment of it.
Now for the rest of the day I’m working on dinner for tonight (chicken enchiladas), shopping the specials, clearing off the kitchen table and then I’m going to read. The seven books on the side of my bed are calling my name very loudly. I’d love to at least delve into one, if not two.
Oh, we did have a mixup with the bus for The Girl. When she got to school, the computer showed that there should be a pickup across from our house, but the bus services said there isn’t one. Hence no pickup yesterday morning. So after talking with bus services, they gave me some additional stops in our neighborhood. We drove around until we found the closest one which is about 3 blocks away. Gah. Why can’t they make it simple for people on our street! It only takes a few minutes to get there, but again when the weather is cruddy, I’d prefer that my child be able to get home quickly. Anh – I should just be quiet. At least she gets bus service…
School was wonderful for both kids. All emotional crisises have been averted for the time being. The Girl came home, claiming two new friends and several classes that she likes. The Boy came home, claiming one new friend. (I told him to sit with the other kids at lunch and that will help. The Boy chose a spot all to himself with nary another boy around him.) They were both ready to head back today, so that’s a good thing.
Job update: I haven’t heard anything from anyone. God’s definitely teaching me patience. This character-building time isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I’d just like to learn it while earning a paycheck. :)
If I’m going to get anything done, I’ve got to head out now. I’ll catch y’all round the blogosphere! Happy Friday!
