I'm just blogging today in joy that the week is almost over and Nathan is on an airplane, on his way home from Norway, right now. Some weeks just stink. I won't go into details, but we've had the last remains of e. coli infections, migraines (I've been in denial for a long time, but yes I sometimes have real migraines. I hate to even mention it because it sounds so whiny, but right now I don't care), some other random infection that's driving V crazy, eating and sleeping issues, and the house is a mess. And it's been really cold. TGIFriday.
On the plus side, it's supposed to be nice weather over the weekend, M's teacher thinks he's a genius (he is), and I love ibuprofen and the Gilmore Girls. (We bought the first 2 seasons on DVD after many recommendations from friends, and it's as clever as they said.) Oh, and not the whole house is dirty. The living room's clean, thanks to cracker-pretzel party mix and Brave Combo's All Wound Up! CD, my kids' absolute favorite. Now I'm going to run a load in the dishwasher so it doesn't look like I haven't washed dishes all week, even though that's oh-so-true. The kids had to really scrounge for clean spoons to eat yogurtwithsprinkles this morning. We had sandwiches and grapes for dinner, no silverware required. Eek.
