Catching My Breath

If you've read here for any length of time…

…then you know when I disappear for a week or more at a time there's usually something going on at our house.

Last week was filled with meetings, appointments, and make-up/rescheduled work hours because of sick kiddos (Luke) and then this week didn't start off much better.

Mary Catherine has the stomach flu, and again I find myself juggling lots of responsibilities.

Sometimes that means having to take a break from blogging…

…which I hate!

Half-day of school tomorrow…Grandparent's Day Celebration (we had to cancel our Grandma Visit b/c of the flu!)…and then carpet cleaners coming.

Need I say more???!!!

    1. Thanks, Billie Jo! I must've felt good vibes coming from your way! Yes, lots of Bleach and Lysol! :) Just hoping the boys don't come down with it so that Mimi and Papa (my parents) can make the trip!

      Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, too!
