More Craziness!

Well, life hasn't calmed down a bit since my last post. Keep in mind, this has all happened at the same time.

We've had a women's retreat that was too fun. We had a blast and really opened up to each other. Very good time, and well worth it.

Crissy's had an abscessed tooth. The infection spread to just under her right eye. She had surgery to remove all infection from the bone and soft tissue and to pack the empty space left behind with bovine bone chips. Yep, that's right. Cow bone. LOL I told her last time that she was now officially a heifer. :) For some reason, she didn't think that was nearly as funny as I did.

Gracie has been sick with viral meningitis. Yep, you read it correctly. Meningitis. Now that brings up some scary thoughts. Bless her heart, she's been sick for a week and a half now. The viral kind is a milder form than the bacterial. However, both are HIGHLY contagious. You can't do anything for viral except treat the symptoms. No hospitalization needed, unlike bacterial. The problem is that the symptoms are identical. Only tests can tell which you have.

I think Brendan is coming down with it now. Friday afternoon, he mentioned in passing that his stomach hurt. Towards the end of his game Friday night, he told me that his neck hurt. Today, still hurting and feeling bad. ARGH! So, tomorrow, we will go to the doctor to see what he has to say. This means no activities for us for a week or so.

One of my best friends from high school contacted me out of the blue last week. We haven't kept in touch in 12 years. She located my blog through the blog of a mutual friend. What makes this such a God-thing is that just a few days before, I had tried to find her again. She's been on my mind a lot lately. Love you Denise! I'm glad we're getting to know one another again.

Monday is the homeschool faculty meeting. We're supposed to turn in grades. Am I ready? Nope! Haven't even started. I have to do the grades for my boys AND for the class we teach at Co-op.

I guess I need to go off-line and get busy. I have to email the grades today. Fun. NOT! lol
