At this point in the day, I am not sure what happened at the beginning of the day, it seems so long ago. Let me think…
I woke up quite early, and despite my aching knee, went to the pool, hoping it would help. It has been well over a month that it has been annoying me and I have seen an evolution of the pain. It never bothers me walking, but now it is particularly noticeable when I get in and out of the car. Thanks to Mary Kay’s knowledge of knee pain management, we came up with a plan. I am a few minutes away from an ice pack.
I headed to the grocery store, purchasing things for the impending cookie production and then came home for breakfast. MK was just coming down from the upstairs bedroom, having just put the baby down for a nap and we proceeded to have something to eat. I then proceeded to finish up my grading for the semester before putting together the grades, producing an excel sheet with the information and then, after recording the grades on the appropriate grade site, e-mailed the excel spreadsheet in to the Division 3 Office of Oakton.
We headed toward lunchtime, doing this and that, and the young charge napped, and napped, and napped. She finally got up and then the next two charges arrived after lunch and the younger of the two was put down for a nap by her mom while the older played.
Samantha and I headed to Language Stars and she had her French class while I headed home for a short time before heading back to pick her up.
Oh, the battery photo…I was on a mission to find this battery in the local Walgreen’s and although I was finally able to read the number, I did not spy any batteries of similar size that said they could replace this one. I got smart and googled it, found a ten-pack on Amazon.com and ordered it (free delivery with Amazon Prime). Now The ‘Dora the Explorer’ Book will play Dora’s crazy song and Kelsey will be happy.
Dinner ended up being with Christian, Samantha, and Kelsey. We cleaned up and put our tired bodies into the reclining chairs. A busy but rewarding day.
