April 29, 2012: Homework Day

Yesterday I spent nearly the entire day working on projects.  I worked until my brain wasn’t really functioning any more.  I was quite productive, though, so I am happy about that.  I had a lot of things that I needed to get done and I wrapped them up, or mostly.  We are feeling like we are in the home stretch now before going to Europe.  Less than two weeks to go and so much to do that it is hard to think about anything else.  Not because we are so excited but because there is just so much to be done and so little time in which to get it all done.  Heading to another continent for so long with the kids is a bit nerve-wracking.

Today is my homework day.  I have tons to do so I pretty much barricaded myself into the office and just chugged away on that all day long.  Not fun but it had to be done.  I am so behind and I am really concerned that I am not going to have nearly enough done before we have to leave for Europe and doing it from Europe is going to be painful, to say the least.

By the end of the day I did finally get my homework caught up.  I am no longer officially behind.  Certainly not ahead, but no longer behind.  That, in and of itself, is a pretty major accomplishment.

I got us take out from Brookhaven this afternoon.  I made it in time to get food from the buffet but it was a breakfast buffet today all breads and meats so there really wasn’t anything for us to eat from that.

I did give Oreo a bath today.  Or a shower really.  A nice, long relaxing shower.  He likes that.  We have new shampoo and conditioner for him from his vet appointment yesterday that he seems to like.  It is very soothing.  He was very soft after his shower.  His mange is still awful and it makes us so sad.

We discovered that there are “Travels with Kids” episodes to watch on Hulu Plus.  We found this show long ago when it was only one or two seasons and didn’t travel anyplace in which we were interested so we never really got into it.  They’ve done a bit more now so we tried watching it again.  We are always looking for travel shows.
