It is 2:20am, Saturday morning.
I woke Friday morning at 6:00am, only to discover Flyer, who had gotten into the kibble food bin the previous night, had urinated all over my study’s area rug due to her diabetes. At 7:30am, I took the rug to the basement and deep cleaned it. I quickly decided to clean the carpets and area rugs upstairs. That followed mopping and shining the floors. This was quite a process in my study as I moved my piano and a number of cabinets.
At 2:45pm, I was finally finished, and hopped in the shower 15 minutes before my first student arrived from the high school.
Lessons were completed by 6:00pm, and fifteen minutes later, Quintin and I were in car, heading to several stores to grab a few items. After scarfing down a quick supper at Wendy’s, we arrived at Wright State University’s theatre auditorium at 7:30pm to greet our family friend, Suzanne Grote. Up in the balcony we were led through an amazing production of W. Stuart McDowell & Timothy Nevits’, 1913: THE GREAT DAYTON FLOOD. Incredible.
Before returning home, we stopped at Kroger and the video store. In the past several hours I’ve completed several loads of laundry, written several blog entries (prior to this), and completed a few of the housecleaning items from earlier in the day.
I am physically exhausted. But, I am exhilarated from the exceptionally productive day, and the production that was so moving.
My days tend to be satisfying, but this one was most satisfying!
