Home is sweet … the weather not so much. But our favorite people are here, and now so are we.
We got home around noon yesterday … we unpacked the car, and I unpacked the luggage and started the laundry while DH went to the store to bring home fixings for lunch. I finished the laundry by dinner … I guess I should fold it and get it put away, eh?
We’ve got some T-time coming up today. Perfect timing! And if that’s not enough, we’ve got a swim meet this weekend … a pretty important meet. It’s the USA Swim A Championships for the Ozark region. It’s a meet that swimmers must swim a set time (or better) to qualify for … the qualifying times are based on the swimmer’s age and gender. The times are fluid, changing from year to year to meet the following criteria (click on the picture for a larger view):
T#1 made A time for 7 different events … and is seeded 6th for his 50 fly (his strongest event). So hopefully he’ll qualify for the finals in that event (top 8 swimmers in the preliminary events will advance to finals) … and maybe a few more if he has a strong outing. T#2 has qualified for several BB events … the championships will be held at the end of February.
Does thawing the turkey stress anyone else out like it does me? I worry about buying it soon enough so that there’s enough time to completely thaw the bird and I worry about buying it too soon so that it sits in the fridge unthawed for too long. Argh!
The day before we left for “paradise”, I tried to print something from my new laptop … it wouldn’t print. I tried everything I could think of … trying to print from DH’s laptop, trying to print from our iPads, rebooting the printer, rebooting the devices, rebooting the wireless router, reinstalling the printer software. While we were gone, I researched wireless all-in-one printers and had chosen a highly-rated one that was on sale at a good price. We were all set to run to Best Buy to buy it this morning when I decided to give our current printer one last chance … and of course, it works just fine! I don’t have a clue what was going on with it before, but I won’t complain about saving a few $$.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
