I am a little slow in posting today. Tomorrow afternoon we will leave for Round Rock, and I have lots to do to get ready for the trip. Today, I have been invited to lunch with some ladies for a surprise birthday party. There are several things I need to do for the party since it is a potluck luncheon. It is not that I have so much to do; it is that all of it takes thought. I have become a list maker out of necessity - and still, I will forget something. I sometimes wonder how I ever got myself and two kids ready for work and school (daycare and such) all before 8:00 AM every morning. I could teach six classes with thirty kids in each class and keep them busy for 45 minutes with great lesson plans. How did I load up four horses and all the rodeo gear, four kids and all their gear and get them to 4H events? Not to mention all the times I loaded up kids and ski equipment for ski races. I was known as the "mom who brought everything" that someone else might need. Yep, I was a really hip and together mom. Now days, I let my grandbaby beat me to the restroom at church and lock herself in while I stand there knocking on the door and her saying, "I do it myself." I stand in the middle of Wal-Mart wondering why the heck did I come here. Yep, the old gray mare ain't what she used to be.
This morning the cat moved her kittens to the clothes dryer.
