Well, to be honest I am feeling overwhelmed and behind in all aspects of my life. The last couple of weeks have been a roller coaster of emotions....and it seems to continue.
I have wanted to post about Christmas, the Santa, our giving gifts and more, but have not had time....having no power for a week didn't help!!! This week, as my husband drives Jared back to school, I hope to find time to write those.
My week, last week, ended with a gorgeous wedding. And seeing a beautiful young woman I have known since her birth marry the love of her life. What a JOY to be part of it!!!
The next day, after all the family and guests left, her mother and I just relaxed around the house and tried to clean a little and NOT eat any more wedding cake! :) I made them all wings to go with the football game....delish!
Monday was a struggle for me. It's always sad to leave my friends who I wish I still lived close to. But Alyssa and I spent the day on the road heading home.
this picture at a rest stop cracked me up. duh?
Tuesday was sort of depressing for me. Hard to come back into reality from a great trip with friends. So I laid low most of the day.
Wednesday, my new iPod I got for my birthday wouldn't work...ugh. But I have to say that the service I got at the Apple store was awesome and I was handed a new iPod and sent on my way!!
Thursday, Jared and I had a mother/son day before he goes back to college. We had lunch at one of his favorite place to eat.
Friday I worked on my new Christmas present....an antique wooden tool box. I saw this at an antique store in AZ when we were there in Sept. Steve worked it out to get it for me and completely surprised me!!! I love it!! And I love how it turned out in my foyer!
Last night we had so much fun playing Euchre with Alyssa and Jared and just enjoyed some family time. But Jared woke me up in the middle of the night with severe stomach pain. We tried several things but nothing worked. By morning when he was bent over in pain, we decided to take him to the ER. After several hours (as in 5) and tests, the doctor decided to admit him over night. His appendix looked normal and they think it is viral but just want to make sure. So hard to watch your kids in pain!
So, I am currently sitting in the same hospital I sat with my niece just a few short months ago. He is feeling a bit better and it is looking more and more like a bad strain of the flu. I suspect we will be released tomorrow. He is supposed to leave for college on Monday, but we will have to see about that. Not that I wouldn't be happy to have him for a few more days, but there are better ways to achieve that I think!!!
Well, that's my week. If you aren't already joining us...head over to Fransmama's and share your week in pictures!
