So this week I did some sewing, lots of cooking, laundry (my washer is finally and momentarily empty. Don't ask about the dryer or the hampers, I am feeling triumphant about the washer.) and dishes, found a child spraying Dermoplast out of the window (he thought it was bug spray), baked some bread and cookies, acquired a new nephew, fixed my neighbor's daughter's silky so she could sleep at night, finished a book, started reading By the Shores of Silver Lake to the kids, talked myself down from several freak-outs, had several freak-outs, found a child drinking granulated sugar from a glass, wiped a cute little nose a thousand times, bought the ugliest little shadow box at a thrift store (reinvented post coming up!), got lots of kisses, gave lots of kisses, saw a one of my favorite people (thanks for the clothes K.), met another friend's miracle baby, and had a picnic with the kids. That about sums it up. Intersperse that with lots of laughing, glaring, desperate prayers, relieved thanksgivings, and a fair amount of sleep and there you have it. Hope you had a busy and fun week!
