Past | Present | Future

It's been a few days since I last blogged so let me see if I can bring you up to speed on what's going on around here.

Past | Stuff that happened last week:
Endured one of the gloomiest weeks I can remember in Colorado. It was cloudy, cold, snowy, rainy, and just generally blah. I'm so happy the sun has begun to shine again.

Went to the doctor about my leg. She thinks I have tendonitis. I'm supposed to rest and take ibuprofen. I haven't exercised in three solid weeks (it's killing me) but now that I'm taking the correct dose of ibuprofen it definitely feels a little better. I'm just hoping that Advil is doing more than simply masking the pain. She also recommended physical therapy.

Kept my cool (that's how I remember it anyway) when my eleven-year-old told me 24 hours before she needed a medieval costume for school. We pulled it off with a visit to the local thrift store but I forgot to take a picture of my cute little medieval peasant.

Sarah ran for Student Council and she was elected to serve her class as one of three representatives next year. Atta girl!

Helped with the Younglife garage sale. Will and Sarah helped too. I haven't heard how much money the sale pulled in but I've never seen so much junk, er, stuff at a sale before.

Helped chaperone a dance at Abbey's elementary school. I sure don't remember having dances in elementary school. It was a sock hop and it was really pretty fun!

Normal, boring stuff like laundry, cleaning, homework, cooking, and grocery shopping. My sweet husband cleaned out the garage and the basement for me on Saturday. I offered to help him, but he let me off the hook and told me he preferred to do it alone! 

Survived the busiest weekend we've had in a long, LONG time.



Present | Stuff happening today:
Hmmmmm, let's see. 

I have an awards assembly to go to today, and I'm taking my teenager to the doctor because he has a very, very sore throat and ran a temp of 102 almost all day yesterday. It's the last week of school AND he has a few final exams to take, and if he has strep he needs to start taking meds today. 
UPDATE: Will's strep test came back positive. He has one dose of antibiotic in him and the doc said he could go to school tomorrow if he feels well enough.


Future | Stuff happening this week:
Have I mentioned that this is the LAST week of school! It's hard not to be excited about that.

Field Day is this week. It's my favorite day of the whole school year!

Report cards. We're so proud of our kids. They've worked hard and have done excellent work all year long.

A fun family outing to celebrate the end of another terrific school year. 

Some friends we haven't seen in awhile are coming for a quick visit.

Hairapy! Hallelujah. As I inch closer to forty I seem to find more gray hair every day. You have no idea how desperate I am for a cut and some color.

A little shopping for my trip to C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A.

It's our last week of school too, and I am so happy about that. It's also field day, which I am not happy about. It's one of my least favorite days of school (it's hot! Don't hate me).

I hope this week is bright and sunshiny!

I'm glad you finally got to see the doctor! I hope you're on your way to a full recovery sooner rather than later.

Congratulations on not completely losing your mind with the endless winter! I hope you all are finally on your way to some sunshiny, warm weather!

We have field day this week but one more week of school after this one. This should be our last week but someone somewhere messed up the calendar (boo hiss). To rebel, I'm taking the kids out of school Monday to go on a little long weekend trip. I'm really looking forward to it.

Hope the teenager gets some good meds and does well on his tests!

I'll be taking my 7 year old in for a strep swab today....
She slept in my bed all day yesterday and then when it was bed time she went and infected her own bed while I changed all my bedding. I guess I'll be washing a lot of sheets and blankets today.
I'm really glad the doctor didn't confirm your fear of a torn ligament. Your California tan will look so much better with out a leg brace farmer tan.

School gets out this week here, too. Poor Arkansas is going till June and our kids our out next week. not that I have a school kid or something. It just makes me giddy thinking about summer vacation!

Sorry about the tendonitis. PT really can give you good tips on how to protect those knees and legs. And for me Percogesic helps all muscle aches. Makes me a little drowsy but it doesn't hurt my stomach.

Enjoy Cali. What part are you going to? We're heading there in October, but to visit in-laws so not that exciting.

Yea for you! I wish our school was almost done. We still have half a year to go, our year runs jan-dec.

Enjoy the CA sunshine!

Hope things are well at your house - I know you're running 90 to nothing these days. May is a crazy month.

I'm glad you're starting to get some relief for your leg.

I hope your son starts feeling better soon. It sucks to be sick at the and of the school year when all the fun stuff is happening.

YAY for California!!

Really???
An elementary school dance???
How weird.
Sounds fun, but weird.

You've been busy!! Maybe you should mark one day on your calendar to do nothing but watch gLee reruns and keep the soundtracks on repeat!! ;)

Gretchen said...

You and your last day of school in May people. Insert grumble here.

Hang in there with the leg.

Getting so excited with you for your trip!
