Trudging Through

the week, that is.

Starting back to school mid-week after a two and a half week hiatus is difficult enough. Sending homework home with first graders the first day back after a two and a half week hiatus is insane (and isn't likely to get done). I don't get it.

We aren't exactly back into the swing of things yet, but everyone did manage to get up and out the door on time for school this morning. As for Jack, he's a bit punky. Not sure what is going on with him, but hopefully it doesn't escalate into something that requires a doctor's visit. I've had enough visiting with doctors for awhile.

The insurance adjuster is coming out to the house tomorrow to assess the damage. Having told the story enough times, I have to admit that if it wasn't such an expensive venture, there is an element of humor to the whole thing. A very small element of humor.

And while I'm listing the mundane details of everyday life, I'll add that I've lost my keys. Big bummer. Especially if they are in St. Louis (I've got Peggy looking for them).

Jack will be celebrating his 10th birthday in a few weeks. I'm working on putting my thoughts to words that I will share on his special day. So many emotions. So difficult to articulate. Only so many hours in a day. But, I'll get it done.

Carpe Diem my friends.

Oh my, I hope Jack isn't getting anything nasty, that's all you need. I hate the homework too, Sam has quite a bit at the moment. He isn't that keen on writing yet so he types his spellings up on the computer. He did them last night then switched to the internet before I had chance to print them off, so now we need to do them again. Grrr..

I hope Jack feels better soon! And I hope your keys are not in St. Louis! We are having fun trouble shooting the humidifier right now...it is off gassing some horrible odors. Never a dull moment in our crazy worlds! Have a relaxing weekend.
