The Week That Was a Glorious Mess
Several times this week I found myself on marathon phone calls with the call waiting buzzing in my ear and Facebook and Twitter going off with messages from family and friends all in a wonderful jumble. Yesterday was a day of online class planning, conference calls, and prep prep prep for a new adjunct teaching opportunity.
If I've picked up a book this week, I fell asleep next to it shortly after, angering the dog because I dropped it in her spot.
I hit 10,000 steps on my FitBit for the first time ever yesterday. Working from home, no less! Since I was a captive audience on all those conference calls, I figured walking in place or dancing around was as good a pastime as any.
I've picked up the kiddo from his after school program early on a couple of afternoons. Last night we got through homework so quickly and effortlessly that Greyson and I snuggled up together on the chaise lounge, and he watched YouTube videos about Zootopia while I petted his hair and dozed.
David is out of town for the second week, so sleep is spotty. Why Susie the Basset hound needs hugs at 3am I'll never know. This morning I was awake at 1:30, 2:30, 4:30 and again at 5:15.
Next, I'm off to the cardiologist for a preventative appointment before my insurance craps out. My father died young of a heart attack, so an EKG and stress test are in order. Glad I've had my coffee. I'll overlook the fact that the office gave me the wrong appointment time by two and a half hours.
I hope you're all having a gloriously messy week. Because if it's gonna be messy, I hope it's at least glorious.
