As the clock ticks down toward Monday, the pressure is rising to get done all of the things that I want accomplished before the Surgery. Today the list included cleaning house, getting the girls' hair cut, dropping in on Hubby's 93 year old Grandma, birthday shopping for Hubby and Dad and running a few other errands. Apparently, God's plan for my day included locking my keys in the van and spending the afternoon in leisurely conversation with said Grandmother while we waited for the Cavalry to arrive. And it was wonderful. For all of us (except for maybe the Cavalry).
We did still manage to get the hair cuts (or is that hairs cut?), and the shopping done (will someone please explain to me why the Garden department at Wal-Mart is full of socks and underwear and not a single garden item?). The elaborate dinner of Chicken Cordon Bleu turned into English Rabbit, which is a rare treat around here and literally takes 5 minutes to make. And of course, the house will still be here tomorrow.
If you have never read Jan Karon's Jeremy, The Tale of an Honest Bunny, I highly recommend it. It is a wonderful story, and Mr. Pruneholdt's recipe is delicious.
