One of the greatest children’s music album that I have ever heard is Snacktime by the Barenaked Ladies. Mia got it when she was less than a week old, thanks Uncle Jeff!, and we have been enjoying it for the past 5 years. We all like it, which is amazing, and let me tell you, when you can’t take one more go around of Let it Go it’s nice to break out 789 or The Ninjas. Anyway, one of the songs is about things he doesn’t like and one of them is spinny rides. For some reason, I can’t get that song out of my head this week. I feel like I’ve been on a spinny ride. I’m not going to say I don’t like it but I will say that at times it felt like I was going around at a higher speed than I would want to and there was no way to jump off.
Monday was Mark’s first day at work. He’s been enjoying it so far but naturally we’re all adjusting to him being gone longer during the day because of the commute. Tuesday we had a showing (we actually think it was two showings back to back with the same realtor) and then Wednesday morning I got a call asking if we could do another showing in less than an hour. I negotiated an hour and a half and got zipping around doing the last little touches and getting all of us dressed and out the door. See? Spinny ride.
No showings today, but it was a workday and I didn’t want to get caught up at work and get a phone call to show it so I prepped the house before work just in case. Two showings on back to back days will make you do crazy things like that.
So it’s been a great week: Mark is enjoying his job and the house is showing a lot for its first week. But still….I’ll be ready when the music stops for a bit and I can jump off and sit on a stationary bench for a little…Maybe tomorrow. That’s what Fridays are known for, right?
