tuesday



Today I discovered an extra hour and half that I didn't know I'd have. Dave is home sick and took Andrew to play group this morning while I went to my doctor's appointment with Sprout. We were planning on me taking over for him at play group when I got back, but when I called on my way home, he said he didn't mind staying and doing his sniffling with a roomful of toddlers. So, I found myself alone in the apartment. A rarity.

You might wonder: what did she do with her time? How did she enjoy herself? 80's music and crazy dancing? Time spent jumping on the couch? A nap, at least?

No. I did what I would have done if Andrew was home and there was no playgroup. I made scones, picked up and blogged. Does this make me boring? I think it might.



In other news, tomorrow or Thursday I will be able to cross off an item from my blog's To Do list. This is a first. The list has been dusty and neglected for months. But I'm almost ready. A few more details to pull together and off it goes. Can you guess which one I've done?

You applied for a PhD program. ;)

Alright guys, what are you saying? I might in a bit over my head? Well there are some tangible-in-the-short-term ones! Or is there only one and the answer is so obvious that it feels silly to say it?

hmmm.....so far, 0 for 3. ;)

I knew it! St. Petersburg, right? You didn't blog much this weekend, you know . . .

Seeking La Loba said...

OK, I think I might put in the only serious guess. :) I'm thinking you've almost finished organizing a new home office.

Either that or you've taught Andrew to be kind and reflective. And good thing, too. You better get to that one before Friday!

Ms.Walker said...

well considering all the organzing you've been doing...my guess is organize a home office!

Tara said...

the city quilt - you've probably been dying to take pictures of it, but you wanted it to be a surprise, right?

Firefly said...

If you're crossing something off, you better add something new. How about this one:

"Visit Marti on the farm in California"

Holly said...

I've got to agree w/ seeking la loba and ms walker. You've been doing a lot of cleaning lately, so I think you've organized yourself a home office. What ever it is, congrats! It feels great to accomplish things and cross them off a dusty list!

I am hoping you have applied for the Phd program because you do not have enough on your plate already! Did Dave go to playgroup to exchange sniffles w/ the toddlers?

Robyn said...

He sure did! There's really no better place for a little germ enchange. We got a few thank you notes from toddler moms for sending a dad with the sniffles to play group. ;)

I'm thinking that if toddler playgroup seems like a good way to spend a sick day . . . maybe Dave needs a vacation. Work must be really bad.
