At least for me. I'm sure the rest of you were leading busy, productive lives. Not this granny.
I ached all over yesterday. Even trying to sit at the computer was more than I could do. I drove the girls to school, put the laundry away, and went back to bed. Woke back up for a little while and back to bed again. The girls ate corn dogs and packaged potatoes for dinner and I managed to help with a little homework.
That was my entire day. I'm so glad they're old enough to fend for themselves once in a while although Ray was here and pitched in.
I'd planned to attend my writing class and then go watch Rent with Tim in the afternoon. I cancelled both. (I'm sure the writing class went on without me).
Tuesday had been one of those too much driving days. I don't know if I picked up whatever the girls had or if I was just tired but by the time I came home for the last time on the day, I was exhausted. (That's where I left off on the blog and never got back to it).
Ray's finished with therapy and that should make a big difference. Much as I enjoyed sitting in Starbucks, the drive clear across town and back was getting to me.
Anyhow, enough whining. The City has their annual Open House tonight and the girls want to go. There will be games in the alley behind City Hall and all the public works equipment will be on display. I think they'll discover they're a little old for it but I won't try to tell them that. They can find out for themselves. I doubt that Elcie will want to go but I'll take Rochelle and Rebecca. Maybe. Other than that I have nothing scheduled for today outside the house so I'm going to try for one more day of laziness and see if I bounce back. Today seems better than yesterday already.
Rebecca and Elcie both have the beginnings of colds. We're trying to make the school week with lots of tissues.
This isn't much of a post but I wanted to let you all know I was okay. I don't usually take two days off.
My sympathy to my Canadian friends, especially those living in Montreal. The United States has grown far too accustomed to school shootings but I think it's a rarity in Canada. (It's a rarity here too but w've still had far too many). What an awful day it must have been for them.
Thanks to all for the comments and good wishes. I'm sure I'm fine; just needed to regroup.
Take care everyone.
