Busy, busy, busy

Today was the last day of school. I cried. The kids cheered.

There was so much going on today I kept making mistakes. For example...

- There was a school awards ceremony in the morning; I accidentally showed up 45 minutes too early.

- I put a pot of water on to boil and then forgot about it and ruined the pan.

- I committed to do something for a family member I should not have even considered.

- I forgot to call in to a weekly work conference call.

But despite all of my shortcomings today some good things happened: The 6th grade carnival I co-chaired turned out well. The kids really seemed to enjoy it. We played our new Wii system for the first time today (thanks Mimi!). Patch let me win at tennis. And then there was a lovely rain this evening I enjoyed.

So it was a busy day mixed with both the good and the bad. And although it is tempting to dwell on the negative things that happened today I have decided to throw the ruined pot away, fulfill my commitment, make sure I call in to the work conference call next time, and forget all the rest of the bad that happened. Life is too short not to think about the blessings and bounty we have.

Today may have been the last day of school, but tomorrow is the first day of summer.

Scripture of the Day: Ezekiel 19:2, 10


  1. I love that! I love summers. I really enjoy having my kids home, I always have. When school starts again in the fall I always go into depression for a few weeks.

    Congrats on all the good things that happened to you during the day. And I think being 45 minutes early is much better than being 45 minutes late. Kids remember those mistakes FOREVER! :-)

  2. I have had days like that! What's up with us having school for 2.5 more weeks???
