OK, I am not the multi-tasker I might have heretofore considered myself! Phew!
AND…the merry month of May is living up to its name.
It has also set the “special day” stakes high and we are romping along to keep up with birthdays, family celebrations and the ins and outs of out-of-state family and friends visiting from places we once lived.
The drama always builds beginning with Mother’s Day.
From there we bump right up against two birthdays in a row.
Then go for another.
It’s all timed and wedged right up against graduation season so that our shopping and running around coincides with the rest of the County doing the same but for other reasons.
And then there’s trying to get people together for said celebrations while they are also making it to grads and family functions.
Then we breathe again.
This year, fortunately, blessedly, we had family staying at the house, that is, my brother and his wife arrived to celebrate b’days with us!
I snapped pictures but have downloaded none.
I shopped and shopped yet the fridge continually emptied.
I did laundry on the burst but will likely tell you I have nothing to wear. (I did buy a jacket about 8 days ago but got it home and to my horror, found it to be an outright ‘ugh’ so back it goes.) And I saw that HM washed out his own socks this a.m. He doesn’t realize there are pairs and pairs of them in the laundry room, impatient, unfolded, waiting.
We laughed and later, after the errands and dinners and reminisces and itineraries, we fought to stay awake and watch Letterman’s Top 10, a little of our usual routine. And then someone would tell a story, want a snack, suggest a game and we all get our second wind.
It is a blessing, all the activity.
And then everyone went home (sigh) or back to their own places.
Now the house echoes a little.
I turn on loud music.
The Holiday weekend approaches.
We think about sleeping in.
