For the last two months, I looked forward to this week. With Greenville Tech closed for the holiday, I planned to get some things done around the house, work on my writing, and read some good books. Maybe even get together with friends for lunch. The thought of this week got me through a demanding schedule in May and June.
It's Thursday now, and how have I spent my week? Bouncing balls on the front porch, playing with Fisher Price toys (a circus and train from my childhood) and coloring. I have read some books--Curious George, The Ugly Duckling, If You Give a Cat a Cupcake, If You Give a Pig a Party--just not the ones I planned to read.
So what happened? My daughter is a single parent and suddenly got transferred out of town. She started work this week in the new location, but she still doesn't have a place to live. So...my beautiful, three-year-old granddaughter is staying with us.
A fun week, but definitely not the week I planned. Gotta go now. She's tired of finger painting after ten whole minutes! Too bad it's too hot for the park.
Oh well, I guess I need another vacation!
