And now I'm on a Facebook break. To detox a bit. But I still want to document things, so I though a blog post would be good.
Yesterday Owl fell out of the car and got an impressive shiner ("You should see the other guy!"). The car wasn't running, she was just not being super careful near the open door.
Yesterday Otter got a haircut. Because we have a rule about people with long hair keeping their hair pulled back when they are at school...and Otter had several days of taking her hair down. I told her if she kept doing it then I'd cut her hair short. Eventually I had to deliver on the threat. She doesn't like getting her hair brushed anyhow, so it will probably be for the best.
Last night was Chick's last Elementary Choir and Orchestra concert. She had a solo (though not exactly a "solo" but still, she was featured). She did great, and has loved getting into music this year. She liked violin, but wants to switch to cello next year. I love the sound of cello, so I'm kind of excited, though transporting may be tricky. It's too bad that she can't do orchestra AND choir at the same time in middle school like she did this year. She had to pick one as her elective for the whole year. She picked orchestra.
I also had an eventful day yesterday. Besides the haircutting, and kissing of boo-boos, I subbed for half a day, did PTO stuff, and grocery shopped. And then after school I had a dentist appointment. I've had a lot of dentist appointments, because in December I got a new veneer on one of my front teeth, and then it seemed to have gotten chipped and was sensitive. So in February the dentist took it off and put on a horrible, ugly temporary. And then I kept going back every couple of weeks or so to get the new permanent one, but the color was always wrong. Finally, after almost 4 months of feeling self-conscious about smiling...yesterday the color was right and I got the permanent one on. It is so much nicer to smile now, even though the tooth may hurt a bit while it settles in.
I think that's all of our news from the past day or so. It has been busy and eventful, and today will be too (an end of year picnic at Chick's school, followed by my monthly volunteer gig with her class in the Outdoor classroom, followed by the school carnival over at the other kids' school.
I'm going to really appreciate a calm weekend!! (I'm going to see Les Mis in Seattle with a friend on Saturday, and Sunday is just church in the morning and relaxing in the afternoon. )
