It is empty except for me and two rodents (hamsters) who live upstairs in Hannah's room.
Our tenacious one is shadowing at the local Catholic middle school. She is registered there for next year for 7th grade and wanted to see how it would feel to actually be there.
She is shadowing with a 7th grader whose family I've known for years, though she has never met this particular member of the family. She did exclaim upon first seeing her, however, "You were Mary Poppins!!" I think they will get along famously.
I have many things to do today:
- do homework for Bible school
- pick up Wayne's pants from the cleaners
- shop for a requested item for one of the kids
- fill out paperwork
- make a mammogram appointment (ugh)
- think of something to make for supper and make it
The only thing I really want to do is take an uninterrupted nap.
This is my procrastination from that, while I have a cup of coffee and enjoy the peace.
Around 3 o'clock all will return to normal when I go get Hannah from school, drop her off to watch Max while I get our shadower from choir practice, and eventually actually watch Max for two hours. Thankfully, there will be no homework to conquer.
This could be the new normal come August though. Unless God throws me a curve ball and offers something amazing to keep me busy while all the kids are in school once again.
