Crazy few weeks here en La Casa del Blogger.

I believe I’ve mentioned that we’ve been doing some renovations over the past two months. Well, I took my first shower in our completely remodeled bathroom Tuesday morning. We’re still waiting on some lighting and a mirror, but we’re almost done. But we’ve had contractors in the house for the better part of eight weeks, which has thrown us all off our games a bit.

We’ve also been dealing with round two of the cold season. All the girls have had awful coughs the last two weeks. L. often coughs so much in the middle of the night that she makes herself throw up. I’m fighting a nasty cough, too, and S. said her throat is a bit sore. She’s been working almost constantly, too.

So it’s been a weird couple of weeks. Days fly by without getting much accomplished. When I get a chance to crack open the laptop and write in the evenings, I’m often too tired to focus.

But refueling time is coming. We’re packing up the family truckster and heading to Kansas City on Thursday. It’s the first time the whole family has come with me in over two years, so we’re very excited. We’re looking forward to seeing many of you over the weekend. And hopefully next week the girls will be healthy again, we’ll all get full nights of sleep, and I can get back in the swing of things on the blog.
