Toni expresses how I'm feeling today. I thought I was snapping a picture of her adorable face, but she yawned just as I pushed the button.
Every time I think I've got a handle on life, and a regular schedule, things get interesting again. This week has two curves: summer colds and home construction. I have a horrible summer cold, and I think D has caught it, too. I spent the past four days dozing, reading, and knitting just a little. Today I ventured to the office to polish a presentation and prepare for tomorrow's meetings. I doubt I will last all day, though. Yesterday, our master bathroom ceiling was replaced. The roof has leaked in heavy rain since we moved into our (then brand new) townhouse 2 years ago. It caused significant water damage and mold in the master bathroom. Last week, the builder finally fixed the roof (on the fourth or fifth try), and this week they're installing a new ceiling. Today D is home sick while the painters make everything look as good as new.
The little girls have been troopers throughout the construction. We just corral them into D's office for the duration. Yesterday, the did not cower behind the computer the whole time the builders were working. They enjoyed watching the world go by and demanded love every time I checked in on them. Maybe my cats will stop being afraid of visitors soon.
