I was out of town last week for work for three nights - the first time I have been away from home since my daughter was born (7 years ago). It was a bit hard on everyone. Even though I could tell it was getting her down, Chloe was a good sport.
Since then, I've been running to catch up. I have a meeting for a town commission I chair on Thursday night, and I have been trying to get organized for that. I'm also homeroom mom for Chloe's first grade class - had a meeting for our annual auction fundraiser on Friday morning, 9 hours after getting back from the airport. Had to go in to do library - reading the kids books and helping out - at school on Monday afternoon. All while trying to keep moving with my workload. Running the vacuum and catching up on sheets and towels has just about finished me off... I was snoozing while Chloe was reading her books to me this evening.
My current excitement is at having found a group to play mah jongg with. My regular day off is Friday, so come 9:00 am this Friday I will be hearing the click of tiles. Music to my ears!
I have a few ideas of posts for the next couple of weeks I want to get to - a giveaway, some stone info, a few book reviews, etc. But that's it for now.
