Cordelia's officially done with physical therapy for now. She admitted to us yesterday that she hasn't been doing her exercises because she's been utterly exhausted, so I'm a bit worried about things going forward.

She made it to the GSA bowling party only about forty five minutes after it started. She said it was a lot of fun but that only four out of the six members of her school's group made it. It was a multi-school event, so there were still a lot of people there.

The eighth graders are at Greenfield Village today. That's an outdoor historical recreation(ish) space an hour or so away from here. There's a large museum there, too, but people tend to go to one or the other. My sixth grade class, back in the late 1970s, spent a day at Greenfield Village. We were all supposed to dress up in nineteenth century clothing (or as close as we could get) for a short stint in a one room schoolhouse. I had a granny dress, so I was set. Mrs Pattinson, who was a very tall, thin woman in her fifties (or possibly sixties), looked very impressive as I recall. I have no recollection of what anyone else wore. I'm pretty sure that we used slates and facsimile primers.

I have no idea what activities Cordelia and her classmates will be undertaking. I look forward to her telling me about it.

I'm going to be spending a lot of time on laundry for the next few days. I'm not at all enthusiastic about it, especially when it comes to tomorrow, but I haven't got a choice. Cordelia can help on Saturday and Sunday. Scott's ability to help depends on whether or not he has to work the weekend. It'll be five loads today (one done, one in the dryer, one in the wash, two waiting). I'm hoping that subsequent days will only require three loads as that's a lot less exhausting.

My hands are hurting a lot, so I'm wearing my heaviest splints. Those will make putting the fitted sheet on the bed a challenge, but I don't think I can do it at all without some sort of splint. Things haven't been this bad since I stopped the Tamoxifen at the beginning of April.

I'm trying to figure out which of my library books I can finish quickly. I'm done with the one book due this week that can't be renewed, and there aren't any due next week that can't be renewed. I would like to get through some of these books or, at least, to read enough of some of them to know I don't want to go further.

I have three phone calls I should make today. Sadly, the easy one is also the least urgent.

Sounds like a good field trip. :) Hope she has fun.

And laundry is an evil at my house right now. I have to tell on myself. I left some clothes in the washer for a bit longer than I should have... and then I ended up Febreze-ing them the other day and running a dryer sheet with them. I just didn't have the time to wash them again.

My theory is that my kids say "I'm too tired" when what they really mean is "I didn't feel like doing it, please leave me alone about it." I don't know if Cordelia does that too, but at least with my kids "too tired" usually doesn't actually mean "too tired."

Would you like me to come by and help with the laundry? I need to run some other errands first, but could probably come help later if you want help.

I like the family PT idea.

Do you know why Cordelia is so tired? That doesn't sound normal. Or, well, that's how one of my kids is, because he won't go to sleep at a decent hour. I think he would be fine if he would just go to bed. Sigh.

Today got eaten up, so I can't do a ride or follow through on having offered to help with laundry. I am sorry.

OH that sounds like a chicken-and-egg problem. She's tired, which makes it easier to stress out, which makes it harder to sleep, around and around in a cycle. Big hugs!!
