#1 daughter didn’t come in last night, since they had bad weather there, so I have no good update on her. Here’s what I do know:

When she first got there, they put her into a little room filled with boxes of paper. Sort of like the miller’s daughter in “Rumpelstitskin.” She had to input, copy, and file all the papers, and as soon as she emptied one box, another would appear.

The papers were upsetting, too, since they dealt with rapes and murders and things. We hadn’t foreseen that, though it makes sense in retrospect.

They expected it to take several months for her to finish it, but she got it done this week. So they are now going to train her to do more interesting things, such as dockets and stuff. I don’t know what those are, but apparently they are pretty exciting.

Her colleagues are very supportive of her plans to go into law, though they fear that she may be too sweet. Those of us who know her well nod sagely when we hear this. “They just don’t know her very well yet,” we say.

So last night I made dinner at 8:00 when #2 son got home from work, and then just watched TV. Not knitting or anything, just watching TV with the kids. I never do this. And then I slept in till 8:00 this morning. I also never do that. I woke this morning with a headache and a sore throat. I don;t know whether it was from oversleeping, or if I was just really tired. And, since this week has been madly busy and I haven’t exercised or eaten properly, I may just be getting the effects of that.

Still, my husband made me a cup of tea. I was on my way out the door to do the grocery shopping, but it was so nice of him to do that, I sat back down to write this post. Then I will get groceries, and make breakfast (or I suppose it will be brunch by then), and clean house. I have practice with the choirlet this afternoon. I hope all these things will make me feel better.
