May gets a little crazy sometimes. Michael commented yesterday that it seems like I've been out of the house a lot. I told him that's because I have been out of the house a lot. In the space of three weeks Ella has five concerts, a sleep-over and the opening of Star Trek: Into Darkness, plus a band car-wash fundraiser. I have two graduation ceremonies, one retirement dinner, an all day workshop in Syracuse, a school budget hearing, and a meeting of my school reform group.
This is in a family where we like to come home from work, walk the dogs, go to yoga, eat dinner, watch a little TV, then do the crossword puzzle before bed.
Here I am at tonight's recognition dinner hosted by my union with my colleagues Liz and Jacqueline. There was a lady there who has worked for the same organization for Forty Years, which kind of blew my mind.
