what did you do today?

Sometimes when I am overwhelmed by all the things I need to do - if I get that one last project out of the way I can unlock my repressed potential and fly into action. Or something like that ... I'll be speaking at our women's conference THIS WEEKEND and have a long way to go in preparation. Knowing this and that I had a million loads of laundry to do, a messy house to clean and a full day of homeschooling to put in I decided to take apart my piano, remove the "upright action" (a.k.a. the keys, not the hammers), fix key #60 and 64 (the key lever had split) thoroughly vacuum underneath the key board and replace all the parts. It was so worth it.
As it turns out I was able to get a lot done at my computer after this. I took the kids outside and let them run wild (they were snail hunting) while I sat under at tree on a little chair from Eliannah's play kitchen. Now if only I could figure out how to tune a piano I'd be in business ...
