…a little tired. Which might be bad news for writing a Right Now post, because it could be a bit of a downer. We’ll see. Can my Pollyanna tendencies pull through???
Read on to find out!
(isn’t this exciting?)
…feeling slightly disorganized.
…in the middle of doing the seasonal clothing switch for my kids (which is part of the reason I’m feeling disorganized!)
…glad it appears that I won’t need to do a ton of shopping for girl clothes.
…thinking about where I might want to go to shop for Joshua’s clothes. I haven’t got much in the way of hand me downs for him, and his build is difficult to fit at a thrift store.
…happy that warm weather has finally arrived.
…sad that oak pollen will soon fill the air. Well, actually, I guess I’m more sad that Sonia’s allergic to it. Aside from that, I have nothing against oak pollen.
…pleased that I have all the necessary anti-allergy supplies here. I am ready!
…experiencing a touch of spring fever. I look forward to summer break as much as my kids do.
…realizing that this was the scene less than three weeks ago. Things can change so much in a few weeks at this time of year.
…thinking, as it seems I often do, that parenting is no job for sissies. It’s less physically demanding now than it used to be when our kids were younger, but now it’s definitely more mentally challenging.
…remembering that I need to hurry and use some of my Groupons. I’ve got one for a restaurant and one for some photo books that are due to expire sort of soon. I think the photo book one expires first, so I better get moving on that. I did at least get started on one of the photo books, so, um, points for me there?
…remembering that I also need to type up a money email for April. Considering we’re nearly a third of the way through the month (whaaaa??) I should really get on that.
…glad that my kitchen has been filled with a lot of science activities of late (this particular time we were studying the water cycle, and the bowl contraption here showed the basics of how rain works.)
(The book we’re using is The Usborne Book of Science Activities, Vol. 3, which Sonia and Zoe really like.)
So, there you go. That was pretty perky for a tired person, right? Looking for the good does wonders, I say.
