It appears that Dorian continues to amble (the NHC website actually used that word, the system is moving so slowly!) north, and hopefully will spare most areas. (If you were NOT hit and want to express your gratitude by helping others that were, this list from charitynavigator gives some good options; I plan to do this today).
SO. Back to normal. Despite my vow to outsource, we took most of the downstairs shutters off of the house yesterday afternoon (thankfully takedown = easier than putting up). We may leave the upstairs shutters for the time being, given that September is peak hurricane season and it was rather treacherous placing them. But it’s nice to have light back into most of the house.
After working from home until the afternoon, I took the kids outside (!) and the weather was just fine. They were SO in need of an energy release and some sun! Today = back to school and business as usual. I have a normal work day today and Genevieve will be back at school for the first time in over 10 days (not counting the 1 hour she attended last Monday before they sent her home due to a very runny nose).
I finished Gravity is the Thing last night and will start reading The Gifted School, which looks especially juicy and perfect for this time of year.
I spent some time this morning (rest days = more morning time for other things) creating my Q4 goals list which is a little overdue. But: better late than never. And honestly the start of school kind of dominated my focus from mid-late August. Now I’m ready to start tackling other things.
Back tomorrow. Since I am writing so many posts and you will all probably get bored hearing about the mundane details of every day – any requests for topics?
