(I typed all of this in for a private web group, but I figure I could edit names and put it here too!)
Jay arrived home Friday morning! YEA! We had lunch and got the girls
early. Then we went to temple for Tot Shabbot. The girls really wanted
to go. Saturday, we had a Girl Scout Shabot at an orthodox temple. Then
Skating. Then on Sunday (with the time change) we had Girl Scout Sunday
(Soleil really wanted to go!) then an ice skating fund raiser, then our
Girl Scout meeting plus her winter ceremony.
Monday- I was planning on a nice quiet day. We did gymnastics, then
lunch, we went to Backyard Adventures to look for a playset. At 3, I
got a call from my Friend Kobyashi.
Crazy H was in the ER getting an IV and
chest x-ray from this flu. Could we take their kids? Of course I said
yes. Then I realized that I had swimming at 5. I couldn’t take 4 girls
in my car unless I put Soleil in the front.
So I went to our neighbor
and she was able to babysit! She came over for the hour while we went
swimming. Her mom came over for the beginning to make sure Erik’s kids
were okay with a totally new person.
We had a meltdown at swimming because Luna had the wrong panties. Sigh. I had her go commando instead of forcing panties on.("NO! I WANT THE ARIEL PANTIES" "honey, those are dirty and stinky and at home" "GO HOME AND GET THEM!")
Then I get home before 6 and find K and Crazy H at our house, they paid the babysitter and I made the kids mac&cheese because their kids needed to eat
before going home.
Then Jay picked up our babysitter (yes, we were going out that night our first night out since DECEMBER!) and she came while everyone was there.
The Crazy H family left, then we left. We had a nice dinner and got home.
Jury Duty in Cambridge. I had to leave the house at 7 am to get there
in time. No internet. Got let go at 2, went to the Backyard Adventures
to setup another congfiguration. Sigh. Took a nap, had a girl scout
adult meeting at night. Got
sucked in to do the Volunteer Awards Ceremony in May.
Discovered a 1/4 inch bulge on the sidewall of my tire. Called the tire
place in town, gave them the size and the guy there got 2
tires for me so they could replace it in the afternoon. Had teacher/parent meeting with Soleil’s teacher. Dropped
off Jay so he could go back to work (telescope proposals are due next Thursday). Got tire replaced, bulge was now
1 inch! The steel belt had broken and was starting to break through the
wall! EEEK! (damn pot holes)
Then had a playdate for Soleil and talked with the mom whom I had met before and always found talking to her ackward. Then she explained she had been in an accident as a teen
and had a brain injury, so she was sorry that she kept repeating
herself. The conversation kept jumping from 1 topic to another then
back to the first because she kept forgetting that we moved off of it.
It was really odd.
Thursday-Today.I am working late tonight. Jay’s home. After Soleil’s
temple school, he’s getting Luna, picking up his parents from the
airport and we’re all meeting at Friendly’s in town
Tomorrow- Girl Scout meeting at my house! Then movie night for the girls at my house! 10 5 & 6 year old girls at my house from 3:30-7! Yea me!
Oh, and we were asked by Temple to take our turn for the coffee hour
(oneg) after services tomorrow night. Jay and his dad are going.
And I need to finish sewing a dress for Luna for Purim. Sigh…
Figured out the Spacecracft anomaly. Looking at ways to detect when this electronic board resets by checking the voltage which depends on the observation. Got a BIG assignment today from Mission Planning. Need Tequila. If you see Jose? send him my way!
