Tonight's activity. Mommy/son night. My son got suspended from school for tomorrow for chasing his little classmates around with some scissors he found. (It's not funny, but it kind of is. First grade horror movie.) Fortunately no one was hurt. We swam later than usual and I turned off my alarm for the morning. Go Little Dude!
The swim was good for me. I'd been thinking horribly resentful thoughts about how I always have to be the one to take rearrange my schedule because my ex always considers his working day to be so very much more important....
It's true. He does. But resenting it was just taking away from my ability to enjoy some unexpected time with my son. Swimming always seems to wash away those icky feelings. Not lap swimming, but diving to the bottom of the pool and playing around with twisting and turning underwater is so fun. I love that I can be suspended upside down under water. It's a unique feeling. I'm always in a better mood after playing in the pool.
Luckily I have some work to do tomorrow, but no meetings until an early evening networking event that I'm looking forward to. I try to go to events that are interesting to me whether I make any connections or not. It's about real estate development, which is something I really enjoy.
And hey, guess what? It's a convoluted chain of contacts and events, but I had a meeting today with a local developer who wants to hire me part time to help him with a few different things. I hope it works out. Steady income to even out the gaps between commissions, along with being able to do something I love doing anyway would be my ideal work situation. We shall see what happens.
