Mon. Sept. 20, 2021 – working the list today

I’m hoping for cooler and less humid, but I’m not holding my breath. It got very hot and wet yesterday and put a damper (ha!) on my whole day.

It was a slow day anyway, with me paying the price for my exertions on Saturday, the girls all coming home in the middle of the day, and normal end of week domestic bliss chores.

I do have some extra stuff to do today, as there should be some nice stuff for my wife’s birthday. I’ll probably do a nice dinner, do extra cleaning, and try to get more stuff out of the house. I have some stuff that might work as a gift, but I’ve been slack… and that ain’t good. For instance, I haven’t done anything with the kids to get them sorted with birthday presents for mom. Bad husband. In fact the depths of my screw up are just now becoming evident.

The world is coming apart at the seams but locally life goes on. And it should. We need to hold tight to the history and traditions that define us and give structure to our lives.

So today on top of everything else, I’ll be scrambling to come up with a nice surprise for my wife. Perhaps that’s how I’ll spend my time with second daughter this afternoon…

Stacks of stuff, do your magic…
