I may have accidentally discovered my superpower this weekend…..doing 12 things at once and still not having anything to show for it. Maybe all of those colored tights I love will come in handy!
This past weekend was filled to the brim with activity, yet I can’t think of anything to talk about. It’s a contrast to my usual riveting report of weekend adventures of house cleaning and excessive napping.
On Friday I spent the whole day celebrating love and avoiding candy. Before I went on my early morning walk I left piles of goodies at each child’s place at the dining room table complete with teeny boxes of Nerds that were supposed to be stuck through a little card with playful Valentine’s Day saying on them. The Nerds and cards were sold together with pictures on the package of the little box adorably slid through a pre-punched slit in the card. Cute, right? Um, no. I ripped so many of those dumb cards trying to force the box of Nerds through that I ended up leaving 9 ripped cards loosely wrapped around the candy boxes. I eventually had to walk away. This, my friends, is not my superpower.
On Saturday I worked on Shop24 orders then in the afternoon I had a funeral to go to. My friend Sara lost her precious mother-in-law and it was a sad day. After I got home Adam was waiting for me at the door, “Want to go for a bike ride with me?!” Despite being worn out, I couldn’t say no to that hopeful little face, so I hopped on my bike and we rode for a while.
He talked all about his ideas for making a bike track in our field and maybe could he go fishing sometime and he wondered if there were any family members in our genealogy that liked biking or fishing. I just rode and listened and thought about how much I love him. Tired-schmired. It was fun.
Sunday was my big party at Michael’s. Several friends stopped by and we had a blast chatting and doing chalkboard lettering. Crafting with other women is so inspiring. Thanks Faith, Colleen, Stacy, Jenn and Sara for being my special guests!
This week is another opportunity to use my powers of getting 12 things done at one time. James is preparing to take the Bar Exam next week which puts my loving-wife skills to the test. I will be sliding trays of food under his office door and diffusing essential oils in his office to help him magically absorb law facts and hold them in his brain.
Yes, now you know the whole truth. He is the one in our family with super powers. I just bounce around his awesomeness.
Have a great week!
