It's been a rough week. A celebration-filled rough week.
Yes, we've celebrated. No, I haven't blogged. I've been taking care of a sick baby all week and I'm exhausted and haven't felt up to blogging.
I'm also feeling over-emotional, so much so that I broke down in tears in the middle of teaching Sharing Time in Primary today. Yeah, those poor kids. I certainly got their attention, though, even from the ones who weren't paying attention before.
It's been a rough week.
On the happy side, after we celebrated International Waffle Day, Thursday, March 26 was Make Up Your Own Holiday Day. The kids made up holidays, but we didn't have time to celebrate much. Nichole's was "Make a YouTube Video Day." Sorry we didn't get to that, Nichole. We'll try another time.
Jr.'s was "Minecraft Day." They did play that.
I don't remember what Jr. Jr.'s was or if he really had one.
Mine was "Celebration of the Baby Not Throwing Up The Whole Day." I picked that one in the morning and was really hoping I'd get to celebrate it. Fortunately I did. Unfortunately he had other troubles instead of throwing up that day.
Friday, March 27, was the anniversary of when Singin' in the Rain premiered. I thought that after the again rough day, we'd all get to sit down and relax watching that movie together. The kids watched it but I didn't get a chance to relax and watch it. I listened to it in the other room as I made dinner. Sigh. I'm glad the kids enjoyed it, though.
Saturday, March 28, was Something on a Stick Day. Skipping our traditional homemade corn dogs because I had a baptism to go to, we had different food when I got home because the family of the girl who was baptized sent me home with a bunch. They knew I had sick kids at home and that my husband was home taking care of them. Such sweet people.
Then Nichole and I went to the church building to watch the General Women's Meeting of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was the first time that Nichole and I were able to go together. Last time we watched on the computer at home and the time before that, Nichole had a dance show the same evening. There's something special about that mother-daughter time watching an important broadcast together at the church building away from the distractions of home. The theme of this broadcast was all about family. I loved it.
I have so much to be grateful for and I am grateful.
