Yesterday, I spent the entire day on my feet, packing away the Christmas decorations, re-organizing my house, and cleaning. I figure I made twenty round-trips up the attic ladders and I didn't bother counting how many times I climbed up and down the ladder in the living room while dismantling my village.
I probably climbed the staircase to the second floor fifty times over the course of the day, as well. I think it's safe to say that, had I made a resolution to get more exercise; yesterday I would have nailed it.
Today, I get to sit on my butt at my desk at work.
You know whose desks won't have butts in them? The desks at the school, the school to which the children should be returning today, following their holiday vacation. Except, today is a teacher in-service day, so, the kids have an extended vacation. I don't get it, either.
Anyway, while I am at my desk, I will be starting the application process for The Teenager's student financial aid.
I think I would rather climb a ladder fifteen million times.
