Tuesday of Hell Week

I'll use Joyce's comments to base an update on -

Oh no! I know what you mean about that being defeated before the week even starts. I feel like that today myself, Tuesday a.m.!

It turns out things were even worse than I thought. I totally completely forgot that my 11-year old is supposed to serve 8:00 a.m. mass ALL THIS WEEK. So he missed yesterday because it was 8:20 when I figured it out. He went today though.

And my son did a Full [and complete!] day of school yesterday, Seton style! On the holiday. So your family wasn't the only one! He's never been in school nor accustomed to the "school calendar" so we don't have any grumbling about doing lessons when it's a holiday, etc. - I'm lucky!

I wouldn't have any grumbling here if it weren't for the NEIGHBOR KIDS!! Grrrrrr

Is your 3rd son any better? Hope he's not any worse!

He's worse. Actually I took him in to the doctor today because he was starting to scare me and he has scarlet fever!! I took my oldest boy along just for kicks because he was complaining of a sore throat also and it's a good thing I did because he was coming down with it too. They both got big nasty shots of antibiotics in their buttocks and were quite testy on the way home.

The medieval feast sounds like a high-toned and fancy to-do ! That will be fun despite the hefty prep work for you!

I did manage to get my serger sewing machine threaded properly - that's always an amazing job. There's nothing like trying to thread those loopers to remind you that your eyes aren't 20 years old any more!! Samthesecondson had those babies threaded in minutes! I did get my daughter's dress partially serged together but I was making mistakes and had to quit for now - still shaking about the scarlet fever thing. I understand that in 24 hours they won't be contagious anymore so looks like the feast is still on for us - unless one of the other three get strep... or if I do!!!

Do you have a job doing transcription then? Do you work? I type for a living myself so I was just wondering!

I transcribe for a general surgeon and an internist, both for over 10 years. I started when my oldest was a newborn and have been at it ever since. My goal is to get that dictator where the doc dictates and then downloads his dictation into the computer and I transcribe off of the internet, but alas, I'm stuck in the 20th century and do the tape pickup and drop off thing. This really puts me behind when the weather is too bad to go out and pick up tapes. Of course, sitting for 2 1/2 hours in the doctor's office with streppy kids can throw off a well balanced schedule too!!

Thanks for letting me vent Joyce!!
