What happened to this week?

This feeling doesn't happen to me often (enough?), but it seems like it was just Memorial Day Monday. Maybe it was the long, holiday weekend that made a busy week seem busier or maybe it was just that busy. Let's see...

Tuesday I went to work as usual, had back-to-back meetings most of the day and then left an hour early to pick up Zoe and bring her to her gymnastics "show." It was the last class of the semester and the class puts on a performance. I have to say it wasn't my favorite one of these things. Zoe was still tired from staying up too late over the weekend and I think a lot of the kids felt similarly because the whole thing was low energy and I just wanted it to be over.

Wednesday I went to work as usual. Had back-to-back meetings in the morning, shopped for a dress for Zoe for the upcoming wedding (where she's to be the ring leader) at lunchtime, worked all afternoon meeting-free and actually got stuff done, and had dinner at my Dad's.

This morning (Thursday) I got a 4AM wake-up from Zoe who was sick to her stomach. (I don't think it was Dad's cooking...) So, I worked from home today which sounds like it should make for a low-key day, but it completely did not. I started working earlier than usual because I didn't have to get Zoe on the bus and drive to work, I took a break at lunch time and got the 3 of us out of the house, but then as soon as we got back I got right back to work and didn't look up again until after 4. Then a truly amazing event occurred -- I cooked dinner. I don't mean I microwaved something either. I'm not sure where the idea came from -- the planets must be mis-aligned today, but it turned out pretty well and it was a nice enough evening to eat outside. A few hours ago I realized that I haven't written a blog post or really looked at my blog since Saturday. And finally here I am recounting the tales of my hectic week and coming to the beautiful realization that tomorrow is Friday.
