April 21, 2018: Going Bonkers

Saturday. We really needed some diversions today. Yesterday’s events were wearing very heavy upon us. And they will for a long time to come.

Started the day with some coffee. It has been a very nice week, warm and sunny. Today it turned chilly and rainy.

This afternoon, Dominica, Paul and I took Liesl and Luciana to Going Bonkers, an indoor play gym thing for kids. It was a good chance to get out of the house and get the kids away from all of the drama going on.

Going Bonkers was way too loud for me to handle. I had to hide in the high, sealed observation room where it was still loud, but not so bad. I had my Chromebook with me and talked to Maggie for a few hours. Had to get her up to speed on all that was going on, and let her know that finally after years of trying, we are now able to hire her. So Maggie is now no longer just on the fringe of the team, but a core team member now. We are starting quickly to reinvent the company. We have several positions to fill now, quite suddenly.

The girls had a good time and it wore them out a bit. It was a good idea to go out today. We all needed to get out of the house. We might have just gone to a playground today, but it was raining.

I did some DuoLingo with the kids this evening. They are enjoying doing it on a regular basis.
