Sunday the 12th - Henry wakes us at 3 am, 4 am, 5 am - Rocky takes Henry to the MD - Diagnosis - strep throat
Monday the 13th - Keep Henry home from school for a day of rest. After Henry's "day of rest" I need about a weeks worth of rest
Tuesday the 14th - Henry is back at school and our
Wednesday the 15th - Every child who is old enough to understand the weather report (Henry and John included) knows that snow is predicted. They behave like wild animals who have been caged. We are notified that school will be delayed an hour on Thursday due to impending weather conditions.
Thursday the 16th - 5:50 am we are woken by the phone cancelling school ... but wait ... there is no snow! Around 8 am the skies open up - beautiful flakes begin to fall ... and fall ... and fall ...
Friday the 17th - School is cancelled again. Roads are not plowed and it's like a skating rink outside our door (there are lots of hills here ... perfect for propelling a vehicle in the wrong direction when icy). I am about to lose my mind - the boys have had waaaayy too much together time and all the chocolate in the house has been eaten
Saturday the 18th - More snow play and general 'feeling cooped upness'
Sunday the 19th - Henry wakes up with pink eye. After a call to the MD and some antibiotic eye drops we are cleared to go see Santa. Remember last years pic? Well ...not much changed this year.
John didn't want anything to do with the guy in red. One day ... maybe when he is 20 I will have a picture of him smiling.
Here is our attempt at a family photo
There is always next year.
Somehow this week I did manage to finish the doll quilts, crochet two swiffer covers, finish the boys scarves, sew a scarf, and almost finish a pair of fingerless mitts (until I ran out of yarn - drats!). Hopefully I will have some time to take pictures to share all the goods ... after Henry's Polar Express party, his class party and violin. Oh yea - and I clean my house for the company that is arriving on Tuesday.
You know what - it's all good. A bit crazy but good.
How was your week?
