It’s been a week. We kicked off the public phase of our work campaign last night with a very large event at Biltmore. It went really well, but 8 a.m. until almost 10 p.m. is quite the workday. (I did get to come home for 90 minutes around lunchtime, but not long enough to nap without fear of oversleeping.) I’ve been working on the website for the campaign this summer and it’s exciting that the public finally gets to see it. And the video. The campaign video is excellent. The students featured in the video just make the video (and I know their feelings. I’ve felt those feelings as a student and now as an alum.)
We celebrated my mom’s birthday on Thursday night and I can’t believe that was just 48 hours ago. It feels like a week has passed.
Today my boy woke up super early – around 6:30 – and did not want to listen to us. He desperately wanted to watch super heroes on Netflix and it took some working to get that going (I had to reset our wireless network last night, and changing a password on the blu-ray is not as easy as one would hope.) I went back to bed, but never really fell back to sleep. And that’s been the theme of the day.
After the boy’s nap time, we walked to the corn maze and spent almost 2 hours up there. We did the middle distance maze – not the longest as I had hoped – and I’m tempted to purchase a Groupon so we can visit again. There’s so much to do at the corn maze (corn cannons, a spider web to climb, a bounce pillow, hay rides, corn “sand” boxes) that it’s really hard to fit it all in during one visit – especially if you’re visiting with a young child. Lucas told us on our way home that he needed to be carried because his legs “felt broken.”
So here’s to a restful Sunday. And a lot of sleep tonight. I’d also like a calmer week, if anyone can make that happen.
