The kids majorly cramped my style today at hamentashen baking time. Used to be they were all short-attention-spanned and they'd roll out a bit of dough, make a couple of Frankenstein cookies and then move along to another activity, leaving me to make the rest of the cookies in a nice and symmetrical manner. Well, not so today. The little stinkers wanted to stick around for the whole event, resulting in non-lovely cookies and an altogether non-meditative cookie-baking event for me. Not to mention that my back seems to be on fire and I can't bend my legs due to yesterday's two hour kickboxing class. (Please remind me never to exercise again.) My Purim spirit is severely dampened, and I had to spend most of the day cleaning up after the cooking event. Needless to say I did NOT finish my almost-finished baby blanket for Sasha (Sam and Eli's OT who is on maternity leave) and I did not do much else either. My to-do list is weighing me down. I'm sure you will find it fascinating reading, so I'll write it down here for you:
1. Make eye dr. appointments for kids.
2. Make asthma Dr. appointment for me.
3. Make naturopath appointments for kids and me (suggested by new OT, what the heck, it's covered)
4. Find out tax id#s of all camps attended last summer for CPA aka Dad, who has been waiting ...
5. Register kids for camp that opens registration on Monday. What does that mean? Do I check their website at midnight, or is this a 9am business hours deal. Pacific Science Center, anyone know?
6. Decide whether to spend load of money on exorbitant week-long geek computer super-cool programming class for Sam at the UW during the summer.
7. PURIM COSTUMES BLARGHHH!! I still have, what 22 hours, yes?
8. Secret Purim basket for co-worker swap event. Oh crap, supposed to have this tomorrow.
9. Learn to stop putting two spaces after a period.
9. My country's 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to
arrange, my wife to murder and Guilder to frame for it; I'm swamped.
Yeah, I think that's it. Fascinating, no?
Good news is, I'll be bringing lots of hamentashen to school tomorrow to share with everyone. Even the ugly ones still taste pretty good.
