Today was supposed to be action-packed. I had to blink a few times and refocus my eyes when I realized I would be leaving the house at 7:30 AM and not returning home until 6:30 PM. My plans included the following:
- Two school drop offs
- Two school pick ups
- One workout
- One drop off at sitter
- One meeting
- One pick up at sitter
- One Tae Quan Do class
- One grocery store trip
Somewhere in there was lunch. Being Little Miss Prepared, I had everything set out last night and was ready to go. Here is what my day actually looked like:
- One A.P. with a barking cough
- Four “sorry, I have to cancel” phone calls
- A trip to and from preschool
It was frustrating, but I was glad I could be at home with him instead of trying to sneak him into school hepped up on cough syrup. I tried that once and it didn’t go well at all. You can read about that here. I will still share what I had intended on writing about though. It makes me feel better to at least do one thing I had planned on.
The Grand Rapids Civic Theatre Travel Troupe is presenting two free performances. According to the press release, it’s a lively adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s, The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck…”Ducks don’t have the patience to hatch their own eggs,” says Henrietta Hen. “Flibberty-gibbets, the lot of them!” Jemima Puddle-Duck determines to prove the conceited Henrietta wrong.
I have no idea what that means. My working knowledge of Beatrix Potter is a little rusty and I’m telling you about this a little early in case yours is too and you’d like to check out a few books from the library to brush up, and for your kids to enjoy. The performances will be Saturday, February 27 and Saturday, March 13; both at 11:00 AM. No tickets are required, and all seats are general admission.
And now, back to the hacking.
