It's Been A Crazy Busy Two Weeks

Thursday, February 9, 2012
The past 2 weeks have been cuh-razy. I'm not complaining. I'd much rather be crazy busy than be sitting around idly. But a little downtime here and there would be nice.

Last Wednesday, Harper was home sick for the day. Between running her to the pediatrician's office and having prescriptions filled, the day was a complete loss. Last Friday, she returned the the pediatrician for a follow up visit. After leaving, I had to take her back to school, pick up forms from the nurse, take the forms back to the pediatrician's office to have them signed, pick up a prescription, drop the forms and medicine at the school nurse's office and attend a math game day with Emma. The opportunities to visit Emma in school are limited. The parents aren't invited to the 4th grade celebrations. So, when there is something special, I always make time to attend.

The Hubs was traveling last week for work, so I had no help here at home. I had 3 deadlines and had to request extensions for 2 of them. Hate doing that, but it was a necessary evil.

The weekend was just as busy. Between, Harper's investiture ceremony for Daisy Girl Scouts, running errands, and watching the Super Bowl (OK, the commercials and half-time show), I felt as if I was running and being pulled in every direction.

It didn't slow down much this week either. I had more deadlines and had some extra projects on my plate this week. All good stuff, but it was work that isn't normally on my schedule.

This week Harper was the star of the week in her classroom. I had a chance to be her special guest yesterday. I love visiting her classroom. Her teacher is lovely, and I get the biggest kick out of her classmates. I read "If You Give a Cat a Cupcake", and we decorated foam cupcakes with stickers. We had a ball! Unfortunately, I didn't get any pics because I was busy with the kids.

After visiting her classroom, I came home for an hour and worked and headed out again to take Harper to the dentist for her 6 month cleaning.

The madness continues this weekend with another visit to the pediatrician, 2 birthday parties and a Daisy meeting for which we need Valentines and a birthday treat for the troop to celebrate Harper's birthday (which is Monday).

I hate to say this, but I really need a debilitating snow storm to slow things down. Can't believe I just said that.
