The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker

It's the grade 7/8 camping trip today. They get back tomorrow.

Micah didn't go, which means that he gets to hang out at home for 2 days. Only half a dozen or so didn't go, so they get to play hooky, as the teachers are out at the lake with the rest.

This gives today a slightly more relaxed feel.

The 11:30 lunch rush is not there. I don't have to stop what I'm doing for an hour to feed him.

I will, on the other hand, stop what I'm doing to tag along with my Husband when he goes downtown to keep an appointment this afternoon.

I've been looking, in vain, for bras, and after checking Sears on-line, I have a little hope that I might find something that fits there.

The thing I hate about going away is that it brings the inadequacies of one's wardrobe into the full light of day. 

It's one thing to have more "laundry day" clothes than "going out into civilized society" clothes when you're home and not going out much... but it's quite another to be away from home and needing to look civilized every day.

For 2 weeks.

It was hard enough packing for one week in Victoria... but 2 weeks will be more of a stretch.


Today is baking day. The Home and School are bringing chocolate chip cookies for a dessert treat for the Play Day lunch tomorrow. Three of us are each bringing 5 dozen. Not so bad.

And I still need to work on that "meal replacement" type bar. I have the powdered soy protein and the 9 grain cereal... and some loverly dried berries and fruit...

And tomorrow I get the results of my most recent 3 month blood screening... (HbA1c- they can't convince me that that isn't witchcraft...) so we'll see how that affects my packing plans!

Yet... here I sit... in avoidance... unmotivated!


Alright, alright.

I'm going.
