Yesterday felt like Friday all day long, so it's more than a little disappointing that I have to actually go back to the office today. Still, I have plenty of work to do, so at least I'll stay occupied.
One of yesterday's highlights was that the triops hatched. Yep, there are dozens of little beasties swimming around in the tank right now. They look just like baby Sea-Monkeys at this point, except that they're obviously growing much more quickly. I'm glad they hatched right away because that means I can feed them before leaving the office for the weekend, which might cut down on some of the cannibalism between tonight and Monday.
Last night I had my first practice with my husband's band. Considering that I haven't sung since about 1998, it went quite well. I'm out of practice, but I did a halfway decent job on the songs I knew. I'm not particularly worried about singing at our party, except that I'll need to memorize a lot of lyrics between now and then.
I keep meaning to post a photo of my fast-growing pumpkin, but it's been dark and gloomy in the mornings all this week. The pumpkin is now the size of a football, but it's still green and striped and rather watermelon-like. By the time I manage to get a good picture, it'll probably be bigger than my head.
This weekend promises non-stop closet and basement cleaning action! We'll have a short band practice tomorrow and my niece is spending the night with us from about 5:30 p.m. on, but the rest of the weekend will be given over to tidying, sorting and trash disposal. What fun!
