the last plunge

Chip comes home tonight.

At the time of this writing, however, it should be: Chip comes home tomorrow night. Because for me, at this exact moment, as the words form on the page, it is Thursday night. And it is late.

It's been a long week. A very long week. I know that it's going to be over and I will be able to relax my concentration just enough to allow my arms to drop just so.

I am tired, is what I'm saying. Far too tired to find something witty or interesting or funny to say. But I can say that I survived these last few days, and I'll survive a few more hours.

This week, I also survived: A lot of my child's nose goo; four bedtimes all on my own; four naptimes all on my own; a badly timed late-night throw-up incident; a few too many tantrums;

Tell me: what are some things you survived this week?

Oh, wow, this has been a hellish week for me. Way too much to put in a comment... so a couple highlights. Teacher called one morning wondering where my oldest child was. She was supposed to be on a train to Philly for a field trip for which I paid a lot of money, but failed to inform me of the date of said field trip so she was at school. Cracked two out of four gingerbread house fronts for the TEN I need to make for kids to decorate for my 6-year-old's birthday next weekend. Multiple trips to elementary school to take items my child forgot (the office ladies now laugh when I walk through the door). What seems like a 2-week long meltdown by my 6-year-old, who I was also informed probably has ADHD. Oh, and just when the high is going to hover around freezing, the heater in my car died. But, yes, I'm still surviving. Just barely. :)

Oh, I can just hear how tired you are! I hear ya.

I think the Universe is asking us for some extra effort this week, huh?

Glad you survived. Not that you wouldn't.

I survived my last night of work travel away from my own little bean.
