I Just Want One Ordinary Day

I had such a nice routine going during the regular school term. Get the kids off to school. Take care of a few things around the house. Walk with my friend M., and then visit for a bit. Talk to my friend R. Have lunch, tackle something that might take a couple hours. Kids start arriving home.

As a result of unusual activities on my side and others (Thursday morning visit and lunch with H., Friday at Readercon, M. got a haircut on Monday, I had a school meeting today), and the new school session, I just cannot seem to get back into a groove. That plus everything requiring a half dozen e-mails/text messages/phone calls to reschedule, which I just don't do well with.

In the meantime, I'm catching up on what I can, and trying not to go completely nuts. It was super easy getting through the backlog of snail mail -- but catching up on what was in my email was significantly more work. There's a certain amount of underlying commitments and I just moved it from paper to electronic. Ah, well.

In today's useless email, Honda wants to tell me about the 2014 Odyssey Touring edition, which has a built in vacuum system. _Really_. I have to say, I think Honda pays an amazing amount of attention to the desires, stated and otherwise, of their customers. I just don't necessarily want the Touring Edition. But that built in vac? Tempting. Very, very tempting. I wonder how loud it is.
