My morning started with a routine “tune-up” with my chiropractor, followed by a trip to the town waste management facility that accepts bagged leaves. Since Heather and Jed helped with yard work on Saturday, I have been driving around with seven overly stuffed paper leaf bags in the back of my car. The back seats of my Honda Fit lay down flat giving me a huge space in which to fit a lot of ‘stuff’. The Fit is known to be small on the outside, but BIG on the inside, and I have certainly found that to be true. But the leaf bags took up every inch of space. These bags are about 4 feet high and when Heather stuffs them they are almost too heavy for me to handle. I was determined to get them out of the car, however, so somehow I managed to manhandle them and left the leaf dump with an empty car. I then made an impromptu decision to head off-Cape to return some items I bought on my shopping spree before Thanksgiving. So saying that I went shopping today is not really correct. I went to return things and came home with replacements. Then it was time to pick Jonah and Ollie up from school as Tuesday is my day of the week for pick-up. I always enjoy my time with them and this week I get to pick them up on Thursday and Friday as well. It is the start of the fall public radio pledge drive and Heather works until 7 pm on Thursday and Friday. Jed is working frantically to finish up a grant he is working on before leaving for England on December 8, so I have volunteered to do extra kid duty.
