It's Tuesday and I am drinking my coffee so I thought we could chat a bit for Virtual Coffee.
If we were really meeting for coffee this morning, I would first apologize for being so sleepy. I am having a hard time STILL adjusting to the time change. I laid in bed last night for what seemed like an hour, wide AWAKE. And then had to literally drag myself out of bed at 7:15am. Which, in my house, is considered sleeping in.
I would also whine a little (just a little, I promise) about my sore muscles. Yesterday I went to a class at the Y for the first time ever. I checked in at the front desk and asked for a ticket to the Muscle Conditioning class. A fellow gym-goer heard me and busted out laughing. "They have a class called "Muscle Punishing!?!?!" He must have misunderstood me, I corrected him. But now that I think about it, that might be a more appropriate title for the class. Ouchie!
So, tell me about what is going on in your world? We are busy with swim lessons, hockey class, library, school, meals, all the normal stuff. The stuff that I am so thankful that we get to carry on doing. Considering the catastrophe happening in Japan. I am so sad for the people of that country. I can't even imagine..... an earthquake..... a tsunami..... and now nuclear explosions and fears of radiation poisoning. It doesn't seem fair that they get hit with all of these hardships, all at once.
Chase was watching some of the coverage with me on TV. Oddly enough he picked out a book at the library last week titled "Tsunami's." So we looked through it and talked about what was happening and why it happens and how scary it must be for the people there. I don't think he really gets the enormity of the situation, not that I really want him to at this age. He just wanted some reassurance on the geography. "Mom, we don't live by an ocean, right?"
Well, my coffee is gone and I guess it is time to get back to business.... cleaning.... laundry..... cooking..... not that I am complaining. I am grateful and even guilty to have all these everyday, mundane tasks to do.
I hope you have a happy Tuesday!!
Opps, and some photo shares, you didn't think I would post a post without just a few, did you?
I had to bribe him to get these photos. He begged me to go outside and I said "SURE but I want to take some photos of you with the balloons first." I know, I know... but an obsessed-photo-taking-Momma-to-camera-shy-boys has gotta do what an obsessed-photo-taking-Momma-to-camera-shy boys has gotta do!
