This is literally how I feel tonight. We shopped, we ate and we can consider the day a success. I tried to multi-task, and this is the way I feel afterwards!!! I should have known better. I am a single-tasking sort of gal, and research DOES now prove that multi-tasking is NOT a good idea, and I agree.
For starters, I decided to get my car EXTENSIVELY serviced today while we were in Des Moines school shopping. (FOUR hours worth of service work) which meant my son and I were dropped off at one point for FOUR hours. That worked well for the 1/2 hour we were in the mall. Other than that, we had to WALK everywhere we went. Walking is good. Right?? but not with new school supplies, salon supplies, new shoes, clothing and a new backpack!!! and I think it HAD to be 100 degrees today with 100% humidity. Right?? it certainly felt like it. We walked for what seemed like MILES to go everywhere within walking distance and some places that should have NOT been considered walking distance.
And before all of this started, my son began the BIG day with taking his Learners Permit test. He passed it. Whew!!! so……..I must be getting easier with age, but about 12 hours later and on the way home (on the interstate, mind you) I finally told his he HAD to drive the rest of the way home. My legs were cramping, restless leg and I think I have something severely wrong with my left foot (anyway that is a whole other story!!)….he had no choice. He was flattered. He has always had a very keen ability to drive most things, so he passsed MY test with flying colors!!! He did a great job and we arrived home safe and sound.
Next weekend, I am going to do this all again, with my daughter and her best friend (might as well be another child of mine) 🙂 it will be a GREAT time, and this time…..we are going to have a vehicle the whole time!!!!
Good night. I am TIRED.
