Life has caught up with me this week. Things at work have been incredibly hectic with two staff members who have been out sick all week. When we have a max number of 4 staff at work on any given day- it makes it interesting- to say the least. Needless to say, I've been feeling exhausted and overwhelmed this week.
But I do have a few bits of good news that have brightened my day.
First- Debbie at Happy Days has given me an award!
Isn't she the sweetest thing! Let me tell you a little about Debbie. She is a regular commenter here and always has something sweet to say. She definitely brightens my day. She is a wonderful Mom and devoted Grandma and is always trying to learn new things.
I'm supposed to pass this on to other bloggers who make me smile. Now, there are lots of blogs I follow that make me smile but honestly, with the mush that is my brain right now, I can't pick five. Sorry. You all make me smile. Thanks.
Another bright spot of the day... I got an email from one of I11's teachers. At first, I had a bad feeling- wondering what was wrong- but she was writing to let us know how much she enjoys having him in class, telling us that he is polite, conscientious and a hard worker. WOW! I LIKE THAT! We don't usually hear good things about our children and it's nice to know we're doing a good job.
Hmm, another bright spot- my order of books from Amazon has shipped. I ordered the Edible Forest Gardens books for my classes I'm planning to take. But Yowza! They aren't cheap!! While I had free shipping, I also decided to order Gaia's Garden and Last Child in the Woods.
And the final and biggest bright spot of the day? We got word today that the closing for selling our house in town will be March 5th. Almost a month early and only two weeks away. Hurrah!!! That makes this the last month with a payment on one loan and only one more car payment before we can pay it off.
I'm glad there are only two more days left this week to work. And I'm REALLY glad I don't have to work this weekend. I need a break. I'll try to be better at posting regularly but I've just been a bit frazzled the past few days.
I hope you are all having a good week.
