This past week has been especially bonkers. In addition to the usual busy-ness, and some getting-ready-for-Christmas stuff, there has been some fantastic (volunteering at a Gifted Outreach conference that Will participated in on Monday, and attending an amazing We Day with Noah on Wednesday), some fun-but-tiring (helping the boys and their team all week to get everything ready for tomorrow's full-day Lego League competition), and some downright ugly (acquiring a gigantic and painful bruise on my leg while climbing over a stadium seat one afternoon -- long story -- and noticing last night that there was a puddle of water on our furnace room floor, which resulted in a new hot water tank having to be installed today. And Mom, you will be proud of me when I tell you that I did not, as is my habit in any situation involving plumbing, yell in a panic, "SOMETHING must be DONE!!" when I discovered that puddle. Shocking, I know!)
I'm hopeful life will slow down just a little next week. We have now at least reclaimed our living room (the gigantic Lego table was returned to its usual home tonight), so there's that. I plan to return to our regularly scheduled programming around here soon!
In the meantime, I'll leave you with a fun little game for a Friday night. It's called "Can You Find the Cat?".
