A Little Overwhelmed

Photo of Myles still for a moment and awake. Ordinarily he’s either asleep or moving 100mph.

All at once things are taking a bit of my time and I’m afraid I nearly missed posting today. I like a little something here to remind myself what was going on.

As we are on the cusp of summer I finally did some spring cleaning. I should have done it during the whole stay home thing (which we’re just coming out of) but my mind was elsewhere. I got the first floor done with help. The windows are cleaner and the curtains are done plus the regular cleaning.

School ends tomorrow though really it ended Wednesday when N turned in all his books and cleaned out his locker. The last few days have just involved checking in with teachers and the cross country coaches.

Tomorrow the plumber is coming. The toilet in the small (and I mean really small) bathroom is leaking. And has been for a while. That is the first of the string of neglected things that are to be dealt with. I’m going to try to shoot for scheduling one per day: cars need service appointments and inspection stickers, the dentist, doctors and therapist and then we’ve got to decide what house project to do. Though the plumber might decide that for us.

So yes, stuff is going on. Plus a wee bit of knitting and I’ve got yarn on the way. Enjoy your Sunday!

    Sweetie Myles is looking so handsome. I’m sure he will be willing to help you — or distract you 🙂

    • He likes to distract by stealing things he shouldn’t have like socks or a piece of food left too close to the edge of the counter and then run through the house while being yelled at. It’s a regular occurrence:)

    It sounds like the typical day of a homeowner. I look forward to seeing the new yarn.

  4. So glad things are moving along for you. It can be stressful taking care of house and life stuff, but it’s so nice when it’s done! Looking forward to seeing your new yarn, and always, Myles is such a handsome boy 🙂

    Hang in there, and things will settle down. It is amazing what a deep clean does for one’s outlook when it is finished…I always feel so accomplished when I finally get it done. 🙂

    I performed locker/gym locker clean out for our middle school students. A week later, I was bedridden with “flu-like symptoms” I was so mad. I honestly don’t know how they are going to maintain a clean school environment once the students are allowed in. Compounded by the fact that they love eliminating a custodial position when one of our team retires.
    Hi Myles! You look so handsome!

    • I hope you’re feeling better now. Our school only allowed about 20 kids in the building at a time. They required masks and took everyone’s temperature before they were allowed in. I think no one is quite sure how to do anything safely. Keeping surfaces clean is going to be impossible. Kids touch everything without even thinking about it. They may have to just set aside 10 minutes each day to have the kids wipe down their own desks and lockers.

        I am not out of the woods yet. 😦 It will be an interesting re-opening in September, if that even happens. Can you picture kids in masks? Masks all over the floor and in lockers?

      • I can’t imagine dealing with elementary school kids. The high school kids aren’t great about following the rules.
        Did you get a test? I know they’re tough to get. It takes weeks to recover. I’ll think healing thoughts for you:)

        I did, and thankfully, it came back negative. Still not feeling great, but doc said it could be a bad virus like the flu. good grief!
        Thank you for the good vibes.

    It’ll be interesting to see what how COVID-19 regulations affect our kids’ sports. Cross Country has so many kids running at once. Tennis it shouldn’t be as bad I hope.
