Longest. Week. Ever.

Birthday party for Laura.

Karate tournament for Harrison.

Getting ready for a sub in my classroom. (The getting ready for and recuperating from being out of class is always worse than having been in class.)

Laura’s birthday—the one day of resting and hanging out that I’ve had in ages. A veritable oasis of calm in a world of crap to do.

Karate practice.

Karate practice again.

Visiting the doctor for Harrison because, oh yeah, he’s deaf in one ear. (Or very near. Sorry, got a little hyperbolic there.) He’s apparently got so much fluid in his ears that this eardrums don’t move at all in his left ear. He’s now on an antihistamine with the hopes of getting the ear cavities drained. Dr. says that this problem—don’t remember exactly what she called it—is pretty common and usually doesn’t end up in surgery with tubes being put in. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

Interspersed throughout, working in the flowerbed out front, getting layers laid down, puttering with my seedlings, just enjoying the fresh air.

I’m exhausted from running, but for the first time in I don’t even know how long, I don’t have to get up and go do anything in the morning. I’ve got a WOW meeting in the afternoon, but that’s well into the day and I can sleep, putter around and just enjoy my family.

Soooooo ready for Spring Break. One more week! I’ve got plans to get the kids’ sunflower house going and I’m thinking of some other things. Every time I go to Lowe’s I come home with two more packets of seeds. I’m worse than a crack fiend, really.
