Just as soon as I'm done matching socks, I'll be sorting summer clothes out of my kids' dressers and closets. I HOPE!! (This is a job I dread but it desperately needs to be done.)
I wish I didn't feel the need to vacuum real fast to get ready for Ben's speech and physical therapists. (They climb all around my floor making crumbs extra noticeable.)
I'm sure glad that Eve is down for a nap now. I'm pretty sure Ben just woke up.
I was hoping for a whole day to sort tomorrow, but I remembered a meeting I had with 6th grade teachers for PTO.
Next week is October, two surgeries (Anna and Ben), book group (I hope everyone is feeling well enough that I can go), and company for conference weekend. We are up to our eyeballs in sports, drama, animals, scouts, and clubs.
I am often reminded of this quote--
"Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"
(The Red Queen to Alice in Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass)
I'm off to run just as fast as I can-- to get just about where I always am. Almost there.
Happy (oh so happy) to be able to run!!
Life is good.
