Good morning! It’s been a quiet weekend over here with no high school music events, no appointments, and no travel… well, not for me, anyway. Paul went out of town to visit a friend, so there are just three of us puttering around the house.
It was a busy week after a whirlwind trip to Boston last weekend, so I was ready to slow down and take it easy for a few days. The weather’s been dreary and rainy, so I just stayed home and made a big pot of homemade chili and caught up on laundry and a few computer projects that have been hanging over my head.
I spent some time preparing my Bible Study for Tuesday, and I finally got around to putting together our 2021 family photo book. I hope to tackle 2022 this afternoon, since I’m on a roll with that. I also took a nap yesterday!
It felt really good, but I can only do a day or two of puttering around the house, and I start to go stir crazy. I’m ready to get dressed up and go to church this morning.
I can’t believe it’s already the end of April! Soon Caroline will be home for the summer, and David’s college graduation is just two weeks away. I know he’s ready to be done, and honestly, so am I. I thought his college years were going to fly, but with the disruption of Covid, it feels like he’s been in college for ten years, not five, haha!
He’s been applying for jobs, but not very aggressively, since he’s going to do summer camp one more year and then we have our trip to Italy. He’ll figure out his next steps after that.
Becca, on the other hand, is not so ready for her school year to end. She has so many good friends who are seniors, and she’s going to miss them, but hopefully they’ll get together a lot over the summer. They still have a couple more fun Jazz Band events this spring, so they’re not done yet, but things are definitely winding down for her too.
I’m kind of bummed that my arm isn’t getting better. I’ve been seeing a chiropractor for active release therapy, which usually works when this happens, but he thinks I might have a tear in my rotator cuff this time. I tell ya, if it’s not one thing, it’s another, am I right?
I have an appointment with an orthopedist in a couple weeks, so I’ll just baby it until then and try not to do any further damage. It sounds like there isn’t much besides surgery that can be done for it, if that’s what this is, and no way do I have time for that! I know, I’m getting ahead of myself. I just need to wait and see what the doctor says,
In the meantime, I’m going to start practicing my talk-to-text skills. Or maybe I’ll start dictating my blog posts to Amy, haha!
Have a blessed Sunday, and stay dry out there!
