It is hotter than blue blazes here today. I have made it through nine days of school with students already, and my girls go back tomorrow. This week will seem like a blur since in addition to our school schedule, we are also starting up soccer practices.
I worked for a bit at school today, watched Middle Sister play in a 3 on 3 soccer tournament this afternoon, shopped for groceries and managed to get in a short run. I have a lot of things I still need to do tonight - like getting school lunches ready and making sure everything is laid out for tomorrow morning when the rat race begins.
Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm Ravaged Hospital by Sheri Fink is calling my name. A non-fiction account of what happened at this hospital during Hurricane Katrina I am amazed at what transpired there without anyone's knowledge until it was all over. I would love to sit down and read until I was finished, but with other things on the agenda, I am going to have to work my way slowly through this book - and the many others- I have waiting for me.
It's supper time already and I have no idea what to make - with this heat outside eating doesn't even sound appealing. I am wishing my family would fend for themselves, but I am doubting that will happen.
How about you? What are you planning for supper?
