So, I woke up at 6am today. :(
It's a Saturday! I don't have to get up that early on a weekday. (6:15 is my weekday wake up time.) I suppose my body is in a rut and doesn't get the whole "sleep in" thing anymore. It doesn't help that there were squirrels performing a tap dance routine on my roof.
I may also be suffering from "too much to do and think about to sleep" syndrome. Not that any of it is that big of a deal, but I live such a slow paced life that this weekend feels like activity overload. I'm taking Kevin to take his SAT in a little bit. That shouldn't be a big deal for me and I really hadn't thought much of it, but now that it's THE day, I'm a little anxious about it. There's nothing I can do, it's all on him, but I'm a mom and I worry. It's part of the job description.
The landlord is finally coming by to look at the trees that were felled by the obnoxious amounts of snow this winter. Of course, I have a million errands to run and really wish he would do this any other day but today, but whatever....
And the reason that I'm rushed to do all my errands today is because I'm hitting the town this afternoon to hang out with a bunch of picture-taking, bloggy-type people on the I heart faces photo walk!! eeeeeee!!!!
Okay, so.... I'm excited because I think it's going to be fun.
I'm nervous because I'm going to meet all these bloggy people (that seemed almost two dimensional and imaginary) in real life 3-D!!
I'm excited because I'm sure to learn a thing or two about taking good pictures.
But I'm worried that I'll suck! (I don't truly think that I'll suck, but my mind plays tricks on me.)
I'm stressing over the fact that I want to wear cute shoes, but know I need to be comfortable and my comfy shoes are just ugly... there's no other way to put it.
And here's the other thing.... I'm trying to plan pictures in my head. DC is such a well-visited and photographed place that I really don't want to take lots of cliched pictures. Boring! But what can I do that is new and different? And have you every noticed that everything in DC is gray?!! God forbid that we have gray skies too!
The other things on my mind are Julia's horse show tomorrow and Grant's recital last night.
Speaking of recitals... here, for your listening pleasure (and because I'm bragging on my kid) is Grant playing his recital piece.
