Just for fun lets recap April….
April 6-9: Justis went to Washington D.C. Without us. He had a great time. I teetered on the verge of an anxiety attack.
April 14-17: We took a mini-vacation to Chicago where the kids I love to pieces drove us crazy for four days…I mean where we had a ton of fun.
April 19: Skyler had her tonsils removed. She was the best patient there. I fought back tears and tried to be a big girl.
April 21: We joined Justis at his confirmation dinner. There was trivia about God, our church, etc. I got two out of like 20 answers right. And they let me shepard kids at this church.
April 22: Justis turned 14. And a piece of my heart broke in two as I realized in just four short years Justis will be [according to the law] a full grown adult.
April 23: Justis was confirmed and we celebrated his confirmation and birthday with the family at brunch. And I smiled.
April 25: I gave my BIG team speech at school where my knees shook and my voice quivered and I almost passed out.
April 26-May 1: Lee abandoned me with all five kids for five days straight during the busiest month of our lives! [Did I mention I tend to be a tad bit dramatic?]
April 26: The bus driver overreacted and held my kids hostage as he called the cops about a minor scuffle between two other boys on the bus.
April 27: My rearview mirror took a nose dive off my windshield and buried itself under the backseat while I worried that I lived in a neighborhood where rearview mirrow stealing hoodlums hang out.
April 28: I abandoned three of the five kids at the bus stop and one more at the doctor’s office as I played completely disorganized mom for the day.
April 28: We discovered Keaton has a fractured heel. As if abandoning children wasn’t good enough. Lets through in some broken bones for added fun.
April 29: Spencer lost his very first tooth ever! And the tooth fairy took some time off from the picket lines to exchange a dollar for his tooth.
Tomorrow I have a big final draft paper due. Next week I have finals. And the week after that my boss is going to come to town and hang out with us for three to four days. Could I put a few more things on my plate because I’m not sure I’m
crazy busy enough yet? Is this God’s way of giving me a slow and painful death?
