Okay, first of all, Happy Star Wars Day!! (May the fourth, get it? May the fourth be with you? Get it?? GET IT?!?)
We are skipping a commitment this morning, because yesterday kind of sucked (3-hour meeting after school, then absolutely necessary errands that resulted in me getting the kids “home from school” at 8:55 pm) and tomorrow’s going to kind of suck (3½ hour ballet practice* for Alice which will necessitate an early school pull-out just to give me enough time to feed and prep her beforehand). Today, therefore, needs to be full of gentle, restful experiences or I’m going to go freaking loony.
(*Her recital is on Saturday, so Wednesday is the last class, and then there’s a 3-hour dress rehearsal on Friday (another early school pickup), and then after the recital we’re freeeeee until September!!)
The kids do have yearly eye exams this afternoon — we stopped by there last week for a routine session of glasses-chiropracty, and when I happened to ask when the kids were due for their checkup, hey, it turns out they were due 6 weeks ago! They’re a bit behind on sending out postcards, apparently. Heh. Anyway, Sammy definitely needs new glasses, because the frames are falling apart and the lenses are so scratched up that it’s probably affecting her vision.
