As some of you may already know, last week was about as crazy as can be with us burning the candle at both ends with mom away on her big excursion. Left alone to hold down the fort, I was saved by the fact that the kids chipped in to help in a big way. In the end, it's a good thing for them to help out around the house, but they do it willingly and never make a stink about helping out. You gotta love that.
Anyway, it was a particularly busy week with field trips, sleepovers, school, and a very busy work schedule. Now mom is back safe and sound, which we are extremely happy about, but she's feeling a bit under the weather from all that travel, so once again I'm sort of riding solo while mom recuperates. Things are still busy, especially with winter on the horizon and the need to get all the firewood ready. On that note, things aren't looking so bad, though there's always work that needs to be done. Then again, what else is new?
For now we keep plugging along and doing what we know how to do. At some point things will become a little more sane, but I may be too old to appreciate it by then.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Wes Peck for the pic.
