I can remember that game – Pole Position – my brother and I played it all the time! (he almost always won) It was a cool racing game before racing games were cool. haha The point of the game, of course, was to maneuver your car into first place and win. You did this by racing around corners at badly animated speeds. (well, bad compared to now)
Looking ahead to this week, I can already see an exhausted me at the end of it. We’ve come to the part of the year where we have something almost every night; sometimes two or three things. It’s pole position – just in real life; with better graphics, no music and people instead of cars – maneuvering around obstacles and insane curves (schedules), trying to get to the finish line (friday night).
Monday night, I have my standing meeting for the bond. (and there is a board meeting but I can’t go to both) Wednesday after school is Munchkin’s dentist appointment. Thursday before work is an appointment I’m looking forward to. Thursday afternoon is the egg stuffing party for our staff easter egg roll. This weekend already has plans rolling too.
We are less than a month from early voting. This rush of information has been good practice and helped me really hone my time-management and organizational skills. I’ve always had the ability and I really good at pulling off the impossible (most of the time) but I’ve certainly been able to put that ability on the test track with this bond to where it is an all-the-time endeavor, rather than a project-based focus.
Even though it’s crazy busy, life is really good. I made an appointment at the end of May for an all-girl day with Munchkin before school is out. We’ll go to lunch (anybody know a fru-fru place open on Saturdays, in Temple?), haircuts and new nail polish at the salon then, the day I’ve been promising for going on five years – I’m going to let M get her ears pierced. That way, she’ll be a few weeks into the routine before she goes to her dad’s house for the summer. We’ll be a week from summer break (I told her she could get them the summer before third grade). It will be our special day. I will probably cry. (because I’m a sap like that)
I’ve got to get her registered for summer arts camp at the CAC before too long and find somewhere for Princess Crybaby to be during the summer since her daycare is through the school district and it’s only during the school year.
Also on my Munchkin list – she is asking about baptism so we’re going to make an appointment for her to sit down with Brother Andy (our pastor) to talk about what baptism is and why it’s important. Then we’ll know she’s really ready.
*whew* I’m going to be ready for a vacation or something after May 14. Hold on, folks – here comes another corner!
