Coming Up For Air

Somehow, the culmination of many long-term activities all happened to wind up on this week's schedule.  Dev's final exams, my sister's move, the 4H dog project and fair show, a work-related deadline for me...  And it will be topped off with a six-hour roundtrip drive to deliver my son to his law enforcement career camp.

Last night, I fell asleep sitting up on the couch, in the middle of a really fun text conversation with That Man.  One moment, I'm smiling and texting.  The next thing I know, Ty and Gambit have decided that, since I'm not moving, I must be a mattress good for flopping on.

Today, I have to leave the house only twice, which means I can mae headway on the mountains of laundry.  Someday, I'd like to see the top of my dining table again, though I doubt that day will come until late next week.

After this last month, I'm doing a little hand-wringing over how I'll make schedules work in the coming year.  There are days I'll spend four to five hours in the car, just running Dev to and from work, tutor, and activities.  After the first of the year, I can add at least an hour to that for school transport.  And the earliest Dev will be able to get his own driver's license is June of 2013, when he is 16 1/2.  Sigh.

That's all for now.  That first leave-the-house moment is coming up soon, and I've laundry to rotate first.  Maybe I'll even have the chance to answer email before I leave.  Woohoo!

Good Lord.  What a boring post.  Sorry all.

Sounds like you've been one busy lady! Don't forget to breathe.

I can so sympathize with hours in the car. I'll be thinking of you and hoping it's not too rough until Dev gets his license.

Breathing--yes. Recommended. :)

And I was actually thinking of you as I wrote about the driving thing!
