10 am on Thursday

What I've done already today:
  • Got the kids out the door to go to the school building so they can watch movies and help teachers clean for 4 hours. Couldn't they be doing that here? (Sam's day was legit-he still has finals.)
  • Worked out-did my Jonathan Roche NO EXCUSES strength training workout
  • Took a nap
  • Watched the news and wept for the scouts in Iowa.
  • Sent a reminder email about the hike I'm leading for our church's girls camp in a week and a half
What I'm doing now:
  • Writing about my day and trying to focus my energy
What I should be doing:
  • Practicing piano
  • Doing the dishes
  • Downloading photos from Evan's lacrosse party last night
  • Taking a shower
  • Doing yard work
  • Finishing a lesson for Sunday
  • Starting on the knitted socks I am designing
  • Putting away the Giant Journaling stuff from two days ago-I always get motivated for a few days after we meet and do several pages-but it is living on my DR table instead of down in my craft area.
  • Figuring out dinner
What I'll definitely be doing later:
  • Going to piano lessons
  • Going out to dinner with Eric's dear friend Paul who is in town from Sweden (As you can imagine, they don't get to see each other very often)
What I mostly likely will get done from the "should" list above:
  • Start on the socks
  • Practice Piano (I actually like doing that)
  • Weed for an hour (otherwise we may lose the house-they are getting really big and I think some of them have teeth and claws)
  • Shower
  • Get the dishes done
  • Put the journaling stuff away
So there you have it. Second Thursday in June, 2008. No matter what happens, this day will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience...


  1. I hadn't heard about the scouts. Poor kids, they are having some big problems in Iowa and weather. That picture with the cattle on the mans deck is sad too... Just a few more inches and he'll loose not only his house, but his cattle. :-(

  2. I hadn't heard about the scouts either. How horrible.

    Have fun at dinner.

  3. GIve yourself a break! I'm glad you chose to blog.

  4. i shed a few tears over those scouts as well. and i like your approach to the day. thanks for the reminder: even the mundane sort of days are once in a lifetime. :)

  5. i like writing gives you a different way to look at your days. i'm impressed with all you are able to do!
