Eek week

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.

I know what you mean! Trent travels a bit and it does just plain stink sometimes. Sorry that it's been a tough week. Hopefully he made it home and y'all had a fun weekend. I admire you because you always handle things very well. You always remain calm and just get things done! You have always been a great example! I'm so glad that I found your blog and that we've been able to re-connect! Hope your week is great!!
