Monday Evening Weekend Wrap Up - Tuesday evening edition

Another crazy weekend that left me sunburnt and exhausted! Also still really busy and unable to finish this until tonight.

Wednesday was rehearsal for The Oldest, a baseball game for The Youngest, I had back to back meetings overlapping both events, and The Dude had to work.

Thursday was baseball practice for The Youngest.

Friday was the usual shift at The Boys' school and because I hadn't seen my friends in 2 weeks, I threw an impromptu playdate at the house. I supplied what I had around the house and everyone brought something. It wrapped up pretty early (for one of these), but was still nice and relaxing.

Saturday was working little league snack bar for 2 hours, followed by working the school spring carnival for an additional 5 1/2 hours. By the end I was fried, both literally and metaphorically. The sun burn has now started to fade, and the muscles have recovered, and I hope I will catch up on sleep tonight.

Sunday was little league picture day, hit-a-thon and jamboree. More time in the sun and The Boys in jumpy houses. Even more tired because this was also my only day to do laundry and The Dude had morning soccer game and had to work in the afternoon. Oh, and he took a nap. I went to bed early.

Monday, I went to the office to pack up my cubicle. This is in anticipation for a move to the one wing in which I have not yet worked. Also, my permanent telecommute agreement is close to being final, so I have to do some major cleaning out of stuff over a decade old...

Today, I drove on a field trip that lasted from 7:15 in the morning until 5:00 at night. This is the big 4th grade trip, riding the train to the state capital, touring the Railroad Museum, Sutter's Fort and the Indian Museum. Fun day, but a long drive, and tiring. Oh, and I still dialed into a conference call and managed not to yell at The Oldest, who was working my last nerve. It didn't help that I also had to deal with parents who turn a blind eye to their own kids' contributions to problems... Thankfully, the teachers are far more adept at that sort of thing :-)
