when worlds collide


The work world: A fairly calm day until the very end, resulting in staying late to get caught up. It was almost 7:30 when I finally left. As of today (barring getting called in for any on-call shifts), I'm off for six days. God, am I ready for this.


The mom world: A kid going away on his first school trip (an academic competition) - a trip that never got mentioned (to me at least) until this past week. (This is the same kid who came home gleeful that he had made the tennis team, but hadn't given me the paperwork earlier - the paper work that had to be notarized before he could play. The next day. Oh, yeah, and the doctor's physical that he needed like, yesterday.) He's clearly got both the brains and the drive. The organization is another issue.


The real world: Packing suitcases, making a sack lunch, getting cash, charging phones and iPods, downloading some music for the drive, running through the supermarket because we were inexplicably out of salsa, slinging dinner on the table (tacos), running through the supermarket again to honor a donut request for tomorrow morning on the bus, tracking down Sasquatch...all set to the tune of a ticking clock.


The blog world: Not tonight. I'm pooped.

You need to pamper yourself and forget about the blogging world for a bit.
Just started our Easter Holiday. Two weeks off. Now what will I do with it?

What is the world coming to when a healthy teenager needs a physical to play tennis? Once he is on the bus you can take a deep breath and relax and enjoys your days off :)

The blogworld can always wait. We are all still here. Sleep well. :)
