A New Day!
Woke at 3:33. Thought that was significant and almost…almost!…got out of bed to try to get some work done. It’s the only way I ever will so I have to start getting up around 3 or 4!
Woke again at 5. Then 6. Did not want to get out of bed.
Desire: Go backcountry camping.
Goals: I failed to acheive almost all my goals yesterday. Today’s goals should be to accomplish yesterday’s goals. MUST print some of Sarah’s digital pictures (her school wants them on print so they can scan them in–stupid!). 3 eldest children have dental appointments today. I had wanted to spend this morning downtown at the City County Building and the Chamber of Commerce but I didn’t get my p’s and q’s in order yesterday so it would be a waste of time. I’m so aggrivated with myself!
Spent the latter part of the afternoon building a baby bed for Amy. She loved it! And at one point walked back to the room with the bed, laid down in it, covered herself up and went to sleep for a good couple of hours. She’s such a big girl!
I had a meeting at Sarah’s school to discuss their class trip. I’m going to chaperone. So far I’m the only dad. 24 boys going. I can handle that!
[The human mind is incredible. I just picked a candy sprinkle (like on a doughnut) up off the table. It’s so tiny I could barely pick it up. But I was able to toss it 10 feet into the sink. I didn’t see it fly or land but I heard it roll around in the sink. The toss was done effortlessly. Can you imagine the calculations that had to be going on for that to happen?]
I promised the boys a bonfire for roasting marshmellows so I instructed Tommy on how to build it then we lit it up and had a good ol’ time. We roasted marshmellows, ordered pizza, had more marshmellows, got everyone bathed and to bed. I wanted some time to gather my thoughts but Cathy was bathing and Amy decided it wasn’t bed time so she needed to play then slept in the crib.
