This week, this week. So long.
Sunday – got Patrick home from Chile, drove to Aiken, watched Brayden play ball. Typical weekend (minus the airport part). Unfortunately, we got bad news about one of Patrick’s favorite uncles passing away, so the day was pretty somber.
Monday & Tuesday – work, work and more work. Longest 2 days EVER. Katie had a dentist appointment on Monday that I forgot about until I got to work and looked at my planner. Of course, when I pick her up at school, she has no idea why I am picking her up. Her mind runs from something happened to a family member, or she is getting her teeth pulled. No, no teeth pulling today, just a cleaning. No cavities – yay! Tuesday, normal work day – nothing exciting.
Wednesday – no work, but I went up to Walhalla to be with Patrick for the funeral of his uncle. It was good to see all his family, even under those circumstances. I loved hearing all the stories everyone was telling about Uncle June, and everyone had a story or another. What an amazing life he lived. I am sorry that I never got a chance to meet him. We got home around 11pm that night, after the 3 hour drive home.
Thursday – quite possibly the LONGEST day of work I have had all year. It was so incredibly slow. Its fall break, so no students and then most professors take the day off. However, it was the birthday of three of the most important men in my life. My daddy, Patrick and my childhood pastor Mark. All have influenced my life in so many ways, and I am forever thankful for their presence in my life. Another happy occurrence on this day was, I finally found a house! Allison went with me and we looked at a house in Lexington. Quiet neighborhood, clean and did I mention quiet? Talked with the owner who will be renting it out and its mine. I am so very excited! Bought new shoes for Natalee and came home.
Friday – quiet day at work, nothing major. Looking forward to a quiet evening at home with the kids. I have laundry to do, cleaning up from the week. We will of course watch the Amazing Race to see Katie & Bray’s orthodontist & his wife compete. Then I will be watching Blue Bloods.
Today (Saturday) we have to do yard work. The homeowners of our current home are coming to do a walk thru of the house on Monday. So the grass & bushes need cut, and a run to the dump is needed.
The thought of packing up another house is overwhelming…didn’t I just move???
