Good grief! I am in here with a New Year salutation on January 11th. Well, it’s been a busy past three weeks.
Holidays were good. I managed to come down with a horrible cold on the Wednesday before Christmas. I worked Wednesday with a gauze pad stuffed up my nose so that it wasn’t dripping down my face all day. My co-workers loved having me around. Luckily I worked in Microbiology so that when my work was finished I could leave. (And oh, how they begged me to leave!)
Thursday and Friday, Christmas eve and day, I was better…..felt rather crappy, but at least didn’t spend the days with anything stuck up my nose. But, I made everyone stay far away from me, so that they wouldn’t get sick.
I worked Saturday and Sunday. The cold was miserable and I looked like The Walking Dead. Seriously. I couldn’t call in on the weekend between Christmas and New Year, but I’m sure everyone wished I had. Thursday and Friday were better. The cold got better from there on out. Saturday morning, Jan 2nd, I headed down to help Ashlee move from her house (which is now sold! YAY!) and into a rental house closer to her job and in a really nice area of Lakewood. (Just west of Cleveland). I don’t know how many carloads of stuff we moved, between Ashlee, Anthony, and myself…but it was a lot. Then Monday the movers came to move her big stuff in. I stayed Monday to help have someone at each location and to make sure the dog and cats were safe during the move. I drove home Monday night.
Wednesday Ken and I went and picked up Camden, (grandson) since his mom had surgery to remove a cyst from her tailbone. She couldn’t bend or lift him for a few days, so he stayed with us. He is the best little dude. Eats, sleeps, diapers changed, repeat. He gets a bit cranky with you take his bottle out to burp him halfway through. YOu need earplugs for that one! Anyway, once Aaron got out of work on Friday, I took Cammie back home. His mom and dad had missed him terribly. It was so cute to see how anxious they were to get him back.
Here’s Cammie having a nap in his carseat, with his dinosaur feets.
And, here, he’s checking out his jaguar puppet from his play chair. Yes, I put that monstrosity together. It looked pretty intimidating, but really only took me 40 minutes.
He’s just a bit too young for it, but soon he’ll be bouncing and grabbing at everything!
Needless to say, the Christmas tree is still up. That will be coming down today and tomorrow! I think all the busy-ness has ended for now…..I’m sure something else will come up.
Hope everyone is doing good! 😀
