To the Four Winds

I am so scattered right now, I can hardly string two words together, never mind full sentences. Suffice it to say that my kids’ schedules are kicking my ass.

This morning The Teenager had to be at the orthodontist by 8:00 after which we ran to the Hellmouth for the groceries required for tomorrow night’s team dinner.

After work, I raced home to hose down the porch so that the team will have a nice place to congregate during said dinner, then, I raced the Man-Cub to football practice, raced back home to dust and vacuum, raced back to the park to pick the Cub up and then raced back home to make dinner,

Tomorrow, I have to be at the Middle School by 7:30 for a volunteer assignment that I signed up for weeks ago then, I will do a full day's work, race home to do the prep work for the dinner after which I will race the Cub to his tutoring session and then to the football field for team pictures and his game.

Luckily, Hugh will be available to hold down the fort at the team dinner until the game is over and, I’m sure he will do a great job since the dinner consists of grilled hamburgers and brats and, the grill is his Domain so, it’s all good.

I’m just really, really, tired right now. And, scattered, did I mention scattered? Because, goddamn, I am scattered. I probably just need a good night’s rest, unfortunately, while I was hosing down the porch I discovered a ginormous black widow spider lurking in the trim around the garage door and now, I may never sleep again.

On the other hand, just think of everything I could accomplish during the night hours.

I’m so screwed.
