Monday Madness... never ends

While I wasn't directly affected by some of the chaos in the office today, it swirled around a vortex that was self-sustaining.

The boys have survived 3 full days of school, through today. Here is my text conversation with Brandon this afternoon:

Mom - texted to both boys - home yet? Shouldn't have 2 remind u everyday
Brandon - Yes im home and remind of what
Mom - 2 let me know that u r home
Brandon - Why mom. im capable
Mom - Yes u r capable of getting home BUT i need 2 know u made it alive. common courtesy 2 obey ur mother
Brandon - Ok

Five minutes later Seth replies - Yea we're home

August 19th

Lots of things have happened on August 19th in my past... My neice was born 15 years ago. A nephew was born 22 (?) years ago. Seth broke out in a measle-type rash on the 10th day after his MMR vaccine... wish I had a picture of that one.

And now 2009 - it's the first day of school! I did take pictures and will post those tonight. Our drive & drop-off times worked well. It's a short day for both boys. I took the afternoon off to spend with them. Maybe we'll do something fun... like shopping!

Twice Yearly Posting?

I can't believe that it has been almost 6 months since I posted here. So much has happened...

March - the boys came to visit Illinois during Spring Break. Loved having them with us, hated sending them back to Oregon. The apartment was sooo quiet after they left.

April - Seth's famous bike accident. More on that in a later post....

May - I don't really remember May.

June - I don't remember much of June either except that there was a hot, humid spell here and it was not fun. Then at the end of the month I attended Women of Faith in St. Louis with my mom. My dad and the boys arrived safely on June 30th.

July - A month of juggling Seth's doctor appts with new doctorsa nd figuring out the best course of follow-up treatment.

August - Now both boys are enrolled in school and are ready to start on Wednesday the 19th. Whew!
