It's Tuesday again. This is our busiest day of the week. We have school, of course. But the girls also have a 90 minute art class in the afternoons. I pick them up with just enough time to get to work.
Today, however, is busy plus. My day was all planned. I had everything down almost to the minute, and still do, with one exception. Morgan won't be joining us for any of the fun stuff. She's sick again. This seems to be a recurring theme for her this fall and winter and I'm so tired of it. I feel bad for her not just because she feels unwell, but because today was a big day for her.
Our martial arts school has a demonstration team, and Morgan is a member. Tonight there is a health fair at a local elementary school and it was going to be Morgan's first demo. But since she awoke with a fever, naturally that is no longer an option.
I still have to go. I coordinated the demo, and am the only adult from the school that will be there. Morgan is so disappointed. And I'm disappointed for her. I've held her while she cried and comforted her how I can. A little homemade ice cream, some Finding Nemo...She'll be staying with her granny while the rest of us go on with all the things that must get done today.
Life seems to be passing me by lately without much participation on my part. This is the first moment I've had in several days to sit and just spill out some thoughts. And I shouldn't even be doing it now. I should be checking and re-checking, packing up stuff for the day and sitting with my girl while I can. But I needed this. Just a few minutes venting it out.
I haven't been able to spend much time browsing my blogs lately. I've missed all my blog friends and what's going on with them. I may read one or two a day, but I haven't felt that like I've had the time to ponder them, to encourage and be encouraged. I miss that a lot. I keep thinking, "when we get back to our normal schedule.." but I'm starting to believe this just might be our normal schedule. Lol.
So, dear friends, I've missed you all. I hope everyone has a great day and week. I, for one, am looking forward to a wonderful birthday dinner on Saturday night. I can't believe it's time for my birthday again, but there's no way to stop them from coming, so I'm determined to enjoy it!
