You know what this week was? Calm and peaceful and not too busy. Just the way this stay at home introvert likes them.
For some reason I was organized when it came to dinner. I was able to take stock of what was in the house, something I should be better about doing. I accidentally overbought onions a week ago, and combined with the last few tortillas in the fridge, it seemed like a perfect night for fajitas. Normally those last few tortillas are the ones I forget about until they are stiff like Frisbees and my onions grow trees, so I was happy. Everyone ate and enjoyed dinner without one complaint. I almost pinched myself to verify I wasn’t dreaming.
Mikey did well at his baseball game. I was relieved, because a few of the kids did winter ball last year while Mikey was swimming, so their skills have increased dramatically. Let’s just say one or two of them were ribbing him about his skills a week or two ago.
We went to the dentist for a cleaning and survived. For dinner I used up leftovers in a way that no one knew they were leftovers, so no one really complained (that much).
I returned books to the library almost on time. Success! I went to the pharmacy and they lost my prescription. Failure! This pharmacy is always screwing something up, and if they weren’t so convenient I would go somewhere else. I kind of let the guy have it and he never lost his cool. Not once! He was unflappable, and not in an apathetic way. He genuinely felt bad and let me grouse over a mistake a coworker made. I’m not happy that the pharmacy screwed again, but I’m glad for the opportunity to interact with that pharmacy tech. He was professional and calm, and I feel like I learned a lot from him. Later I got home and snapped at Nicholas for dilly-dallying when he should have been doing homework so I didn’t learn that much, but I’m at the pharmacy every month and, trust me, they’ll screw up again. Plenty of time for me to review my lessons.
It’s Friday and it’s Lent. That means one thing: pizza. Does anyone have a great pizza crust recipe? All the ones I’ve tried have been a little dense. I’m thinking maybe I should try a focacia recipe for a lighter crust.
Mikey has baseball and Nico starts tennis. I don’t think we have anything else going, and that’s A-OKAY with me. I would really love to finish The Historian.
Have a happy weekend, everyone.
