i am inspired to write this post by a new blog friend, Life in Kawagoe. his original blog can be found here.
i woke up this morning feeling good (and by good i mean sleepy) and optimistic about getting back on our school schedule. i was resoundingly overwhelmed by the resulting day, but i want to sort it out. fortunately a lot of the good stuff happened at the end of the day. so besides feeling exhausted, i think i will go to bed with warm fuzzies about the day as a whole. of course there are still quite a few hours until bed time.
the good: (1) the squirm got a new teacher at school and it didn’t seem to bother him a bit. (2) the squirm came home and drank apple juice out of a CUP! i know it seems minor, but it is major. (3) my snow peas and sugarsnaps continue to sprout, carrying me one step closer to home-grown veggies for dinner. (4) i am making my dad an amazing birthday dinner (smothered pork chops, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, stir fried cabbage and peach cobbler) and i really can’t wait to eat it! (5) finger painting!
the bad: (1) the squirt is on some kind of nap strike that makes him highly whinosaurus. (2) the eci ladies have decided that squirticus also shows signs of autism and recommend i rush him to a pediatric neurologist for intervention. maybe i am completely in denial, but as she said “you are so smart, i am sure you have been thinking this too….” i thought, uh, no, not really…. (3) it has been one of those days where everything i attempt to touch, hang up, pick up, cook, or repair either falls, blows away, spills, burns, breaks, or spontaneously combusts. this kind of thing makes me highly cranky.
as scarlet would say, tomorrow is another day!!
