My Week in Review

Can you guess which of these did NOT happen this week? I only did 10 of them, I promise.

1. Organized new after school activity for Andrew, with 5 other children his age.

2. Led successful volunteer meeting.

3. Contracted bizarre virus that caused me to miss preschool pick-up and sleep for 20 out of 24 hours. (Who really needs Thursday anyhow?)

4. Sent ridiculous but original lymric to member of the Dreaded Poet Society.

5. Had my ribs x-rayed.

6. Got caught up on laundry.

7. Caught error in a politician’s note regarding property ownership in our neighborhood, saving time for neighborhood volunteer.

8. Witnessed a grizzly bear receive a root canal within a few yards of the surgery.

9. Enjoyed small talk with an astronaut.

10. Conducted annual maintenance on my dryer and reassembled it.

11. Ran through the pouring rain with a toddler.

You guessed it. I have a lot of laundry to do today.

A grizzly bear root canal. That

Indy said...

My heart says laundry but my head says grizzly bear. What?????? Do explain. Hope you are feeling better. Wow. I have to call and hear about this. Better yet, you call me when you catch your breath.

All this and you "missed Thursday." Slacker.

Small talk with an astronaut. Who does that?

MIT Mommy said...

Anna - It was, well, slobbery actually.

Indy - I'll call you.

There Yet - Yeah, I know. I'm sure we'll all lie on our deathbeds wishing we had folded more laundry.

That's some week you've had, missy. Just realized I never replied to your e-mail, the one I said, "I'll reply later when I have time" to. When I have time... I'm on vacation this week, which should mean I have loads of time, but somehow when you're on vacation with four kids, it just isn't the same, is it? And YOU ought to know better than anyone.

Well, number 9 sounds like fun.
