Today is Friday for most people but for me it is my Monday because I head back to work tonight at 6pm for my overnight shift. That means that I have to get some sleep. It also means that I have to try and get as much done before 1pm as possible. I figure that a four hour rest and nap should get me ready for the overnight. I’m not thoroughly sure though as it is only my 4th weekend on so far.
I really thought that doing weekends would make the month fly by like crazy but for some reason I started working this job on the month with 5 weekends in it. May 1st was my first Sunday on so yeah 5 weekends in May. Crazy. It is going well but Fridays seem like sort of lost days. I did pack a few books but didn’t get into too much of a project because I’d be heading off to sleep.
I’m also trying to fix the desktop because it went crazy again so that is not working, it is running through a bunch of tests that let me know that the computer is working. Except it doesn’t work, so with a mixture of black magic, voodoo and a copper or two to Gates it may yet work again.
So the Kite thing. I’ve watched Mary Poppins about 30 times with Eva as she’s grown into a very inquisitive toddler. In the movie the children simply want their workaholic father to stop and pay some attention to them and fly a kite with them. To George Banks it is a frivolous waste of time. However, we find that doing that one thing with his children made all the difference and was the completion of his transformation from a stand off father to a loving father to his children.
When Eva and I went to Walmart on Tuesday there was a row of kites for $1. She picked out a Barbie one and I figured what the heck, it was a buck. Turns out that this little cheapo kite looks like it will provide hours of enjoyment for Eva and me. We just have to find a windy day instead of running around the driveway like crazy people. Did make for a cute photo though. Also this activity reminds me to take a little time with Eva and play with her, just simply play.
