In less than two weeks…
I had surgery.
Tegan gave birth to baby Leighton.
My dad is hospitalized.
We had another showing today.
Conferences and long days loom ahead this week.
It is just about enough to put me over the edge.
My friend Sue offered to take the kids during the showing.
I said, "Oh, no thank you." But she offered several times. The kids adore her, so….
I took her up on it and grocery shopped at Target. Alone.
Then when I went to pick up the kids she insisted on keeping the big kids longer.
I came home. Read to Brecken. Put him down for a nap (which entailed teaching him how to climb into the crib since nobody was here to help me lift him). Put away the groceries. Ate lunch in peace. Watched TV. Read.
It was peaceful. Just what I needed.
