Yesterday I pulled the sheets off my bed to wash them. I stuck them in the dryer (no room on the clothesline) and headed off to Johnnie Mae’s memorial service. Of course, when I got home they weren’t dry and I was well on my way to bed, so I slept on the couch. It looks as though I will be there again tonight, as well. This time they are dry, but I simply don’t have the energy to clear it off and make it!
I think I hit the wall, energy-wise. I have always been fortunate enough to fall asleep easily (for the most part), stay asleep, and wake up refreshed. My usual challenge is to simply let go and go to bed. But today I woke up tired and creaky, an obvious result of having too much fun yesterday (some might say I was working too hard, but most of it really was fun).
I am anticipating a lovely, laid-back day tomorrow. The girls and I will get to help our priest fill the rest of the backpacks that have been donated for us to give to Pinkham School, and then deliver them to the school. And I will have an end-of-summer lunch with a good friend before she returns to her teaching job the next day.
But best of all, I will be driving to Daddy’s in the afternoon. Our Cuesta Doll Club Auction will be Tuesday, and I will be the auctioneer. I can’t hold a candle to the job Mom used to do as auctioneer, but I am honored to be her stand-in. We will have fun, get rid of unnecessary “stuff”, possibly pick up some bargains, and raise enough money to run our club for the next two years.
I can hardly wait!
