Eagerly anticipating only our second “normal” week since November, I threw myself into Monday. I was up early, finished my morning stuff, etc. And then my daughter wanders down. One look in her eyes and I knew this was not going to be the week I envisioned.
I had her quickly eat & shower, so we could start school ASAP. There was no way she’d make it past lunch, I knew, so I wanted to accomplish as much as we could while she was still upright.
She was down until Wednesday night.
And that was how the week went. Just as I got a handle on it, it slipped out from under me. Every day was something. Some days, multiple somethings came my way. Nothing major enough, just enough to keep me off-kilter.
I am no fan of schedules but, at this point, even I am craving normalcy to our days. When we reach that point, things have definitely gotten bad.
New Olympic event: Uniform Fashion Contest (It was a 2-1 victory for the archer!)
Library trips usually consist of picking up a few books at a time. I had ignored my holds for several days, however, so this trip was much larger!
Fly Guy, long past Matthew’s reading level, continues to be a favorite.
The week wouldn’t be complete if it hadn’t ended with a trip to the ER. Matthew is fine, just a really bad 24-hour viral thing. I am normally quite chill when my kids are sick but even this one worried me. No doctor appointments were available, so the nurse line sent us off to the ER.
And that, my friends, is a week I am glad to see ending.
