I would be referring to the past 5 days. There is so many factors that seemed to culminate but I believe it started when the house shoppers that showed up late on Thursday night wanted to see the house again on Saturday morning. Do they know that it is no easy feat getting the house spick and span and the children out before they have time to undo everything you have just done? And take the dog on top of it?! Alas, we went to the tea house, which is always a treat, but by the end of the day my mother was not feeling so well. And from there it went….
On Monday I was desperate to get back into the groove and go to Physio despite the blizzard warnings for Calgary and surrounding areas. It’s been almost 3 weeks of forgoing school and therapy on account of the flu, a cold and all the other bugs flying through this little town and I was determined at the first sign of recovery to make it in. And we did make it, albeit late, only to arrive at an empty dark pool. (there was a message on my machine when I got home telling me it was cancelled….thank you very much.) Oh well, we had to pick up a sleep monitor (Oximeter) anyway.
I think that was a cracking point and should I not have been in the middle of a hospital, I would have broken down right there. To make it up to Jakob we went down the road to Market Mall where they have a spectacular play area which always seems to have a half hour wait list and let him loose. I think it helped…Jakob….and mommy.
….And here I thought I had a couple more days to fill you in on when it is only Tuesday….that pretty much sums it up. The kids and I took my still-sick-mom to the airport, grabbed so McDonalds on the way home to soften the blow and spent the ride trying to think of what I was going to do for my photography homework….and missed my exit……
