A friend of mine from Sunnyvale called yesterday while I was out and about and left a message. Let me just tell you what "out and about" means for me. It means leaving my house and driving around Chapel Hill and then driving to Durham and then driving to Raleigh and then driving back to Pittsboro because I can't stay at home all day and I need to pick up curtains.
Anyway - I didn't get the message until about 8:30pm when Gabe came in the bedroom and said, "Oh, we have a voice-mail". And then I listened to the message and felt like crying but I stopped myself because Fiona was already crying and that is enough crying for one evening. But I felt very low.
I went into town to meet a lady in the Mother's Club who offered to meet me for coffee and a chat. Then I went to World Market to get panel curtains that had come in after 2 weeks of waiting. And then to Super Target for some super stuff. And then to a Starbucks just because I had to use the bathroom and didn't want to wait for 30 minutes until I got home. And by this time it was 2pm and I realized that I had not had lunch. And then I drove home in the rain and I started to cry. And at some point I realized that the song on the radio was Air Supply and I started to feel sick. A forty something woman, driving, alone, in the rain, listening to Air Supply. How nauseating. So I immediately started to laugh.
Having 2 kids in school full time is hard. I need to go back to work. Or I need to find a new hobbie quick. Anyone with any good suggestions please fire them off to me this instant - because I am in need of some good ideas. In the meantime, enjoy this song from the 80's.
