It has not been a great day at all. Problems at work: messed up paper work at one of my sites, budget confusion at another, no response from a clerk in regards to payment to one of our vendors. Ugh.
I did manage to do some quick shopping before the kids got home. I found some stocking stuffers for the kids. I was so proud because I usually am so last-minute with those gifts. I also found a gift off KidI’s “Wish List.” I shouldn’t have patted myself on the back so quickly.
I was so consumed in picking up bananas and lumpia wrappers to make dessert for KidC’s Culture Day Party tomorrow that I totally forgot about KidI’s violin lesson today. Ugh.
I rushed to make dinner and then rushed to KidC’s band concert and then tried not to rush through after-concert dessert with the in-laws. Then home, kids to bed, and follow-up with emails to KidA’s piano teacher. (Which good thing I re-read because I had mixed up what she wrote telling me she was moving practice from Wednesday to Thursday. It’s for NEXT week! I would have been two-for-two at missed lessons this week if not.)
Tomorrow I’m waking up early, but not to do my usual jog, instead I need to fry those lumpia and then get KidI up because she wants to curl her hair for their Christmas performance which is in the morning from 8am – 9:30am, after which I’ll rush back to work and work to resolve those problems I mentioned earlier.
I feel frazzled and exhausted and unfocused and unorganized all at once. Yes. This is totally what I meant when I named my blog Slight Turbulence. As Mal so eloquently put it, “This is the captain. We have a little problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and then – explode.
