Plans vs. Reality – Guess Who Won?

Today was supposed to be action-packed.  I had to blink a few times and refocus my eyes when I realized I would be leaving the house at 7:30 AM and not returning home until 6:30 PM.  My plans included the following:  

  • Two school drop offs
  • Two school pick ups
  • One workout
  • One drop off at sitter
  • One meeting
  • One pick up at sitter
  • One Tae Quan Do class
  • One grocery store trip

Somewhere in there was lunch.  Being Little Miss Prepared, I had everything set out last night and was ready to go.  Here is what my day actually looked like:

  • One A.P. with a barking cough
  • Four “sorry, I have to cancel” phone calls
  • A trip to and from preschool

It was frustrating, but I was glad I could be at home with him instead of trying to sneak him into school hepped up on cough syrup.  I tried that once and it didn’t go well at all.  You can read about that here. I will still share what I had intended on writing about though.  It makes me feel better to at least do one thing I had planned on. 

The Grand Rapids Civic Theatre Travel Troupe is presenting two free performances. According to the press release, it’s a lively adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s, The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck…”Ducks don’t have the patience to hatch their own eggs,” says Henrietta Hen. “Flibberty-gibbets, the lot of them!” Jemima Puddle-Duck determines to prove the conceited Henrietta wrong.

I have no idea what that means. My working knowledge of Beatrix Potter is a little rusty and I’m telling you about this a little early in case yours is too and you’d like to check out a few books from the library to brush up, and for your kids to enjoy. The performances will be Saturday, February 27 and Saturday, March 13; both at 11:00 AM.  No tickets are required, and all seats are general admission.

And now, back to the hacking.
