Catching Up

Last week was hectic and crazy. Poor Jenna was sick all week. I mean sick. Like throwing up and unable to even keep down water for most of the week. For a teenager, in HS, with AP classes, this is a recipe for disaster. Luckily, she is well now and we were able to get some of her assignments last week so she will be somewhat caught up. But, she missed several tests that she now has to stay after school to make up, etc. Poor kiddo.

Thank goodness she is big enough to take care of her own throwing up issues now, though!

I had to cancel home visits from Malachai's speech therapist and his PAT teacher. Germs, ya'know. But, at least I didn't have to clean my living room when they came over. Yes, I was a lazy bizatch this week. I did very little cleaning in my house! And, I did not even cook most of the week. With Jenna sick and both Steven and I feeling kind of blah, there was no point in cooking big meals every night.

My friend Cindy B and I actually got to see each other for the first time all Summer. She came over and stole me away and we went to play tennis. Ha! Play. I have never played before so she ran me around the court chasing balls. But it was fun and one hell of a good work out.

My birthday was probably one of the best I have had in years. I went up tot he pizzeria, where Steven was working for the day, and had lunch with no kids. No interruptions! Then I had a re-certification appointment. After that, I had some presents from my daughter and mom. Then, I got to talk to my friends Paulie and Chelle. I miss them so much! And I talked to my mom, MIL and my brother. And I relaxed for most of the day! I did not cook dinner. When I went to pick up Steven from work, we stopped at a local sweet shop and coffee house and had pie and coffee for my birthday. It was really nice.

So, no big things last week, just crazy. I felt like I did not have enough hours in each day, even though I did not clean or cook nearly as much as I usually do!

I am planning my weekly menu but have not finished. I may post again later with it.

Boring. I know!
