Back to the mines

And another day of work and life passes. Today was much quieter than last Tuesday, and felt much more fulfilling, but there’s still a sense of drudgery with work. And with they girls’ school. Blah. It also felt weird that The Chosen One had left for work before I woke up. And I woke up at 6:15. Disconcerting.

After getting everyone to school in the rain (and not finding my good rain coat), work went fine. I picked up Ravenclaw and her friend C from school today because I had promised to pick up Hufflepuff. And somehow I forgot that it was Tuesday so she had a meeting after school. Oops!

Anyhow, Ravenclaw had fun showing off the house to C (whose sister has been here a couple times but she hadn’t). They went outside to play for a while and then rode bikes around. It’s so nice to live in a house with a yard (!!) and on a quiet street where they could just ride around without me worrying!

I made a yummy lentil soup while they rode bikes and played. I was the only one to eat it (though I did give some to our friend M when she came to pick up the girls). The rest of the meal I made was scarfed down, it was just the lentil soup that was ignored. Ah well, I had expected it.

I got about 40% of my book club book read tonight while the girls were at their church activities. It meant I didn’t get some other things done, but there will always be more to do.

The Chosen One and I had a nice time watching half of an Addams Family episode. I look forward to watching the rest of it! Maybe after the girls go with their dad tomorrow… It was frustrating that they came home from church in the middle of the episode! But homework does need to take precedence.

Now for me to get back to the book I don’t like and then sleep. Sleep good.
