Still tired


I don’t foresee this changing any time soon. I had a long day at work and then came home to a busy time before the girls left with their dad, then more busy-ness while The Chosen One and I tried to finish putting together the pantry. But when we put the doors on the drawers won’t open. Oops!

Today I’m feeling very grateful for my relative good health and that of my girls.

I’m also feeling strong promptings to pray for my brother & sister-in-law and their baby today. I hope everything is ok with them.

In other news I’m tired.

Hufflepuff not speaking until the end of school went well. She had a rainbow ribbon and a rainbow bracelet that says something about everyone having a voice. One boy tried to hassle her and make her talk. He did it right in front of a teacher and got sent straight to the office! I’m very impressed with her school right now. And with her. I hope she keeps learning to advocate for herself in general, but this was one specific type of advocacy that is important to her, and I’m proud of her for that.

We watched HGTV’s smart house show tonight. So cool! There are definitely things we want to integrate into our house, but other things that we didn’t like. The rooms felt really small, and I don’t understand using white upholstery on chairs in the dining room. Hunh? And they said people don’t use dining rooms. Really? Everyone I know does. But, I know Mormons. And people who cook all the time. Maybe that’s the difference?

It also annoyed me that there was a TV in every room. Including the shower. WTF? Can’t we have screen-free zones?

So tired now. Must sleep. And we kept The Chosen One up past his bedtime. Oops.

Tomorrow is Gryffindor’s scholarship interview. Ravenclaw is going to a friend’s house because The Chosen One is at the office, and she’d rather not be home alone with Hufflepuff. :)
