A little all over the place

I apparently have six drafts in the works. One of which I strictly saved for one sentence that I want to remember to use. 

So it’s not that I haven’t been writing. I just can’t decide what to finish. 

I took Matt to the art museum today. We went to the library. I love having a nerdy kid. We enjoyed the art but whispered jokes and made threats of pushing each other into sculptures. The employees watched us cautiously, not buying that we were there to enjoy the art. 

We put together a puzzle, and walked the galleries.  Matt was a little upset that his favorite was closed for renovations. But overall it was a fun way to spend time together. 

At the library I worked on my blog layout. I do everything from my phone or tablet and so it’s hard to really lay everything out nice and appealing. I worked for half an hour on one particular blog and we came home. Pork fried rice for dinner and we’re getting ready to revisit House. We watched every episode and finished roughly a year ago. 

According to my Facebook memories, we also visited the art museum this time four years ago. 

It’s funny how history repeats itself in my life. Good or bad. 

Tomorrow we’re going to visit my Aunt at a local festival where she will be selling her candles. I’m super excited for her, and hope she makes a small fortune. She lost her husband, my Uncle, last spring and while we often talk about our respective grief at losing someone close to us – me, my dad, her, my uncle – I can’t imagine how hard this has been for her. Everyone’s grief is different, and we lost someone important to us in different ways. I’m just glad she’s getting out into public and doing something she loves again. 

Chase is with his dad, and I hope he is enjoying himself. I’m working on a post about my little guy, and let’s just say I hope this visit does him some good. Maybe the problems we’re encountering have something to do with his dad’s new work schedule. 

For now I’m content with my quiet day. I also did some reading and some napping and some coloring. I’m a little off balance with all these days off. I’ve previously said I’m not a napper, but here lately I have been. I’m a little anxious to get back on track and have my normal hectic schedule back. I have not used these days off in a productive way. Unless reading book after book and naps are considered productive.

Happy Saturday, folks!
