Hopeful Thoughts


Busy Week

So, as you can tell by me LACK of posts, Spring Break is long gone, and I hit the ground RUNNING on Monday.  

Sunday night, Hubby and I were down in Dallas to see Andrew Bird in concert.  It was a great show, by the way.  If you’ve never heard of him, check him out.  It’s amazing what he can do with a looping machine and  violin.  Anyway, this meant that I got to bed LATE on Sunday night.  Thankfully, my 1st block conference period  allowed me to git a little extra sleep.

Even with the late start, Monday went pretty good until I got home from swimming.  As I entered the parking lot of my apartment complex, I got stuck behind a SLOW person.  Just as I was getting annoyed, I got something in my eye and it HURT.  So I’m REALLY in a rush now.  When I finally get into the parking space and start to gather my stuff, I drop my keys in the console.  I make a mental note, finish gathering my pile of stuff, and get out of the car.  It isn’t until I’m walking across the lot that I realize I never picked up my keys!!  I call my friend with the spare, no answer.  I call my husband, no answer.  I call my friend’s husband, no answer.  So I make my way up to the landing and sit down on my swim bag as I try to call hubby again.  During this time, I took out my contact, because my eye hurt so bad.  I was so out of sorts that it didn’t occur to me that this was a bad idea.  I mean, what was I going to do with the contact now?  The wind was blowing hard, so it was going to dry out.  I thought about putting it in my mouth, but I had no idea how long I would be sitting on the porch, locked outside of my apartment.  Finally, after several more failed attempts to reach hubby, I remembered that I was sitting on my swim bag.  I had contact solution in the bag!  Problem solved!  Well, at least one of them.  I was STILL locked outside of my home.  So, I finally decided to call a friend and see if she could pick me up and let me hang out at her place until I could get ahold of hubby.  About the time I got off the phone with her, Hubby called to say he was on the way home…40 minutes away!  I talked to him until my friend came to pick me up, and all was well.

Apparently locking my keys in my car wasn’t enough random forgetfulness on my part for this week.  Tuesday morning I woke up to bright sunshine, not dim sunrise.  It was 8:20, and my alarm was supposed to go off at 7.  Too bad it was set for 7PM!!!  I was once again saved by my first period conference block, but I really don’t want to take advantage of my schedule.  I’m supposed to be at work at 8:15 even though I don’t have students until 10:25.  My alarm is now reset and I got to work on time this morning (it’s easier now because, thankfully the new haircut only takes about 5 minutes to fix!)

Wednesday has been fine.  Mostly I’m just preoccupied with all the things I have going on in life.  Between teaching, tutoring, swimming, BTCL, book club, future plans, facebook, etsy, e-mail…Oh MY GOODNESS!!   IN addition,  I’m in charge of a big event this Saturday that is taking a lot of my time.  Hubby if off from work this week, but I’m really too busy to see him much.  Too bad he wasn’t off last week!  So, that explains why there’s been no blog post.  I’m going to try to post once a week, but we’ll see.  Hopefully the weeks will get less busy.  We’ll see!
