Time Warp Day

Most days I make my mental list of things to do, and at the end of the day have maybe 25% accomplished. The day slips through my fingers, and there are still toys strewn about the living room.

Today, I think the universe ran backwards. At work, we did 7 surgeries in about 5 hours. This is mostly due to the awesome nurses I work with, getting patients ready, finishing the paperwork, etc, and the fact that most of the stuff was routine, straightforward, and uncomplicated. Well, I did pull 17 baby teeth out of a chihuahua today, and a cat neuter ended up being cryptorchid (one retained testicle that I had to search and destroy), but still, overall a smooth day, and I left a little early.

At home, I emptied the dishwasher, swept, took the kids to the park, came back and made an easy dinner. Anth was gone at a meeting, and Colin seemed a little under the weather, so quickly I bathed them and put them to bed. Early. By myself.

This never happens to me! Whatever biorhythms I got today, I'd like some more, with unlimited refills.

I'm so envious. Don't you wish you could have at least one day like that per week?

p.s. Thanks for the pix of the lovely Beverly. I didn't wear braces for that long, but I sure remember how it felt to get them off. Congrats, Bev!
