This week, we fit more things into Friday, Saturday and Sunday – than most people fit into an entire month! Our weekend makes our weekdays look somewhat dull – however looks can be deceiving…
After a low-key, much needed dinner out with friends on Friday evening.
Saturday and Sunday were fill with family birthday celebrations for my husband and I.
Throw in a little soccer,
some work time for me,
a birthday party invitation for our daughter,
and our first outing in our Halloween costumes…
And you get a VERY full week fit into only 3 days!
After our fun-filled weekend, the 24-hour stomach flu
(or quite possibly food poisoning?)
found its way into 3 out of 4 of our family members
and also hit my mother-in-law (who spent Sunday evening with us).
I still managed to lecture for 5 hours
(OMG was THAT hard!)
at the college I teach at, but afterwards:
I sat in my favorite chair and barely moved.
By Tuesday we were all feeling much better.
Our busy day was filled again with the typical:
However my highlight of the day really was my toddlers speech appointment.
His therapist is amazing! I can’t believe how much he has improved
after only 3 appointment and intentional work at home.
Not to mention – he just thinks he is playing the entire time
and then takes a HUGE nap in the afternoon.
(allowing momma some much needed work time!)
I had a phone conference that afternoon
and it was a beautiful day outside…
so I sat in my car,
and enjoyed my surroundings while working!
(See my office view of the park’s woods above.)
Thursday was busy – between work, school, piano lessons and soccer practice. We even
managed to fit in a visit to a preschool we are looking at for our toddler next year.
Has your child ever made a simple decision that filled you with pride?
This week’s Mothers Central Blog Post was inspired both by Halloween
and (in many ways) the political climate surrounding a presidential election year.
