When it rains, it pours.
And, in Seattle, there’s a lot of rain in March. We even had thunder today (a much rarer occurrence!).
Okay, yes, it’s also an appropriate metaphor for life this March. Coincidence? Perhaps…
Anyway, March has been overwhelming. All is very well, but the paperwork alone has been worthy of a blog post, if I thought anyone would find such a topic even half interesting. Suffice to say: Refinancing the house. Also, new evaluation for Nicky, so gathering and copying of his entire therapy, evaluation, & IEP history. Phew!
There were birthdays, and a school auction, and a weekend rowing trip, and a lot of stuff I’m not remembering. Finally, the toilet in the main bathroom decided it was done. It gave over thirty years of service, so no surprise…but the timing? Not cool, toilet. Not cool.
After such an intense four+ weeks, I looked at today’s schedule and found myself staring in amazement at a blank, empty, absolutely-nothing-filled day. Jason was doing his own thing, so the boys and I were on our own. What would we do? Where would we go? What would the weather be like?
(Oh. See aforementioned thunder.)
We did nothing. Practically nothing. A bit of homework for Nicky, and some piano and drums for Kalen. Folded some laundry. We sorted through Kalen’s wardrobe and eliminated this:
After taking all this out, his drawers are still full. Where was it all??
Mostly, though? We binge-watched Once Upon A Time. We’re caught up for the first time since September. We’re eagerly awaiting tomorrow night’s episode.
This, my friends, was a decadent day. I was unstressed-enough to happily fix breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the boys. I was not even this relaxed during my birthday massage. Tomorrow, we’ll leave the house a couple of times for church and choir. Monday, I’ll sign more paperwork for the refinance. Then, March will go out…like a lamb? We’ll see.
Bring it on, April. I’m ready.
