G is for Gratitude
Today has been as busy as the weekend was, and I am tired. Katie had her dance recital Saturday night after a lot of practice Friday and Saturday. I found myself in a tizzy when I had very little time to get Katie's lunch. Our downtown has undergone a lot of changes and I accidentally ended up rushing down a one-way street...going the wrong way, of course (no cars were out, so no need to worry, right- NOT). Then I shuffled around and ran into a main street that is being completely dug up and is temporarily closed. I went through the barricade and dirt anyway (the "food place" was on the other side). By the time I had myself all worked up, I made it back to the theatre in the nick of time to eat lunch with Katie before she had to line up for her dances. I was not thinking gratitude at this point, I was worrying and rushing. The "what ifs" were swimming in my head, and it was all for nothing. I made it back. Katie ate. The show went on. What a waste of energy. Maybe that is why I am so tired.
While we were busy, Pete and the boys were off having fun at a work-related crawfish boil...
