Wow, that was not the day that I expected. First of all, my hand is in better shape today, hurrah. Not great, but not so demanding. I give it a week to get back on track. No, today just took on a crazy life of its own. I helped another class with art this morning. Didn't seem like a big deal at the time. Then took Ian to the park to play with his friends. Then to his gymnastics where he was super-sensitive so I had to keep going downstairs to console him (parents watch the floor from a loft-area). Then home for quick lunch, then to pick up Anika and grab stuff from class for tomorrow. I am trying not to get in scramble-mode where I don't know what we're doing until I walk through the door. I want to be prepared :)
Then to Anika's gymnastics, later than I hoped, then hitting massive traffic as another school let out along the way. Then I get there and the parking is full. The accessible spot (disabled spot) is blocked because it's in a corner. And talking to them about that hits a nerve, where I back-pedal saying it's not a big deal, really. Even though today it was a kinda-big deal. So I drop Anika off in front of the doors, then circle around the building twice waiting for something to open up. I finally give up and park halfway around it (a big building). Get upstairs and Ian says, "I wet." He's figuring out the bathroom. So back to the car where I don't have an extra outfit so we stay there for the next ten minutes.
Oh, and it's hot by now. I don't handle heat so well anymore. It unravels me.
Then I remember, Bunny Meeting. Today is bunny meeting.
That I didn't schedule into my energy-allotment for the day. So home for quick dinner and back out to bunny meeting and home around 8pm. Phew!
And the strange thing was that it wasn't so awful. I felt pretty good today. Alert and capable. To the point where I was trying to figure out, what did I do right? I took some extra anti-inflamatory medicine to help with my hand. Maybe that took the edge of the pain, which made me less tired. Pain is tiring. I don't know. I had good energy-luck, maybe.
The real question is how will I feel tomorrow?
That I won't know until I get there. :) I need to be disciplined about my tech curfew. For my hand and also so I get the downtime before tomorrow. Teaching day :)
