Tough week.

Sports practice x 2 teams and 4 kids… normal household stuff, meetings, appointments, etc. Add into that a tragic death in the (extended) family and I’m exhausted. I’m headed to Tucson for the weekend to work my horse races, then from there I’ll be headed back to my home town for a funeral. I hate that it takes a funeral to bring my family from all the corners of the earth but I’ll enjoy seeing them again.

How was your week?


Off to Start the House Ape Round-Up

I do it almost every day, for part of the school year it’s one simple trip, go to the school, pick them up, come home. However, spring and fall, both when school starts and when it ends (coincidentally, the hottest parts of the school year,) is not so simple. I’m still picking them up, but then I have to shuffle things so I can get four kids to their softball/baseball practice/games, fed, homework, etc. Not that it can’t be done but it’s a little stressful, and have I mentioned how much I detest the heat? Oh, and all this running really cuts into my writing time, it’s really difficult to type while driving. Plus the police really frown on it. Sticks in the mud.
