Today I rode on a bus with eight two-year-olds. Fortunately, there were teachers and one other parent along for the ride, but it really emphasized to me how glad I only have one two-year-old to watch on a regular basis. It was my first time going on a field trip (as a parent), but I’m assuming it will come up again. (Also, Bean pee-pee’d in the potty at the library. Gooooooo Bean!)
I am working from home today because of earlier referenced field trip. It would be a lot easier to do this if I had a manservant to bring me food and beverages. Alas! The architect, although also home right now, has so far refused to bring me lunch.
I am feeling really lazy lately. Between lots of work, lots of sick, and lots of…well…lazy, I haven’t been doing a whole lot lately that involves getting off my ass. That should probably change soon, since I’m running a marathon in October. Nineteen weeks. I am really, really sad that I’m running a marathon in October. I posted in January that I was running a lot until I “had” to do it, and then I’d stop. Yeah, that’s pretty much exactly what happened again. I apparently hate being told what to do so much that I rebel even against myself.
It is a beautiful day from what I can see from my home office. Alas! I am in my office and not outside. I would like to become independently wealthy, now, please.
This afternoon is our first parent-teacher conference for Alvie. I am sure that we’ll be told he’s Doogie Howser-esque but also rambunctious and has trouble with ‘nice hands’. I’m sure he’ll also receive an award for cutest kid ever (I’m positive that’s an award that daycares hand out.)
