Yesterday I told you about how much I love my job. I also mentioned that I wanted to give my boys a treat this morning… something they ask for frequently and my answer is almost always “No.”
My mom helped me remember this as I read a FB message from her while I was having my coffee. She wrote, “I hope the boys enjoy their hot chocolate this morning.” Shew. I was glad she reminded me!
I immediately got up and set three mugs out on the table so that when they woke up they’d be surprised.
I’m very thankful that most of my days are spent at home, because Thursdays wear me out. I am happy to say that I got everything done that was on my To-Do list, but I’m ready for bed.
To give you a taste of my day, and these things are actually ON my calendar for today, I’ve put my schedule below:
- 8:00-11:00 – Italy prep and writing. (Me time. I am enjoying this whole “summer break” as I get to do stuff for me for fun!)
- 8:00 – Call D and ask about when we can meet to swap stuff.
- 10:00 – Email Assisi hostel and confirm reservations
- 11:00 – Lunch
- 11:15 – Gather library books
- 11:30 – Stop by Hainerburg Chapel to reserve facility for Carson’s piano recital
- 11:45 – Shoe shopping for boys. (PX had nothing)
- 12:00 – Drop off items at Thrift Store
- 12:20 – Buy printer paper at Power Zone
- 12:40 – Drop off van for oil change. (We were really smart and left Matt’s Durango there before he went TDY. This left me a vehicle waiting for me to swap into while the van was being worked on.)
- 1:00 – Stop at Shoe Center to see if they have shoes (SCORE)
- 1:30 – Let boys kill some time and burn some energy off at the soccer field before PE.
- 2:00 – PE
- 3:15 – Drop off items at DFAC
- 3:30 – Check mail (ship three packages, pick up five)
- 4:00 – drop off library books
- 4:00 – Carson check for lost coat at Tony Bass Gym
- 4:15 – Pick up medicine at clinic
- 4:30 – Go back to Mainz-Kastel to get van
- 5:00 – Go back to WAAF for soccer
- 6:45 – Go to D’s house for swapping things
- 7:00 – Arrive home, very thankful that the boys can cook themselves dinner.
- 8:00 – Call USAA and let them know about our upcoming travel plans.
I had packed two coolers of food. A full loaf of bread, peanut butter, jelly, apples, bananas, avocado (for me), and waters. We ate sandwiches off and on all day and even made one for a friend at PE who was starving. They had eaten an early lunch so I knew we’d never make it until after soccer to eat again. I was really glad I had a full pantry with me in the car today!
Yep. I’m tired. Now I can go to bed grateful that tomorrow’s schedule is not nearly as packed!
(Oh, one last thing… today was my day off of exercise. I think I’m more tired now than I am on days I work out extra hard!)
