it's almost Friday! It's been a busy week around here, and while I had every intention of being ready to go away again this weekend, I'm scrambling tonight. I did help the boys pack, so they are done! I did do Lydia's laundry, so she's just a quick pack. I still need to do laundry for me & Bo, and I confess I ran to the store and bought some undies rather than attempting laundry tonight. It's been many years since I fell to that tactic, and it seems ridiculous considering my lovely new machines . . . but it's 8:30 and it was quicker to buy new ones rather than wash/dry what we have.
I taught Monday & Tuesday, and the rest of the week I've been in training. It's been interesting, and the new company I'm working with is wonderful . . . but it's hard for me to be behind the desk instead of in front of it. It's a very small training class, so it's even more difficult as I can't let my mind wander or work ahead or play catch up.
The boys started their open gym program this week, and it's been a mixed bag. It's tough to go into that type of setting, and we're working through hurt feelings and some overwhelming days. It didn't help that today I got out of my training a few minutes late, and Bo was tied up with a client, and there was a terrible accident on the freeway. The boys MUST be picked up by a certain time, and 10 minutes before that time I was stuck on the freeway 20 minutes away if there was NO traffic. My sister was out of town, but thankfully a dear friend's sweet daughter ran over and checked them out and then waited for me to grab them. And, then we had to backtrack to pick up Lydia from her child care. And, I found out that some girl went out of her way to mimic Nate's stutter to the point he ended up in tears. This, after Colin was insulted the 2 days prior and came home feeling very hurt. On the plus side, it's a ton of physical activity and Nate is loving that.
It's been a long week for all of us.
We grabbed some fast food, did a little shopping, and the kids are all bathing now so they can collapse into their beds. I am going to pack (we're headed to Camp Verde and Out of Africa this weekend) and then follow them to bed! Another day of work tomorrow, then we're off!
What's up for you this weekend?
