This week…well, it’s been another in the books that hasn’t gone at all like “normal”, but now I’m starting to think that this is our new normal. Monday was a “typical” day, minus the snow and the break outside much of the morning for playing and shoveling. Tuesday we skied. Wednesday I spent the morning taking care of Kindergarten enrollment, then we had a fabulous few hours playing and chatting with friends. Thursday I spent the morning in the pediatrics office, finding out what we can do to start solving our 6 year-old’s tummy troubles. It included a blood-draw, which was exhausting. Poor kid is very sensitive, and just the thought of having his blood drawn was enough to induce a crying spell that left his cheeks red and blotchy. Friday I ended up baking a birthday cake, and 5 dozen cupcakes. The cupcakes were a last-minute request by my husband for a work need, and I only needed to have 25…but the first batch baked so wonky that I only was able to use 10. So all morning I baked, and did school with my oldest, and rushed the cupcakes to work just after noon. Then we had lunch all together (a nice treat), and then it was rush home to pick up practice books and violin for my daughter’s lesson.
I’m so glad it’s a 3-day weekend for us! Today is my husband’s birthday, so Happy Birthday, Fence!! We love you tons and I’m so incredibly blessed you are my husband, so much I can’t even describe it.
