Been off the boards for a little while...August was a wild and crazy month.  First, we had a vacation at the beach with my mom, her sister and BIL and various assorted cousins and their children.  It was great, but it was stressful as I was still juggling homecares and also working full shifts 2 days a week and the beach house and my job are 2 hours from each other.  Between DH and I, though, we made it for 5 of the 6 full days everyone was there, even if it was only for several hours.  The following week, DS had a tonsillectomy and his recovery was a disaster.  Even the ENT said he had an unusually tough time.  We ended up with him admitted to the hospital for dehydration and staying there for three days until they could get him to eat and drink.  Fortunately, he did a lot better once we got him home and he healed up pretty well after that.  This week is getting my room set up and next week starts those interesting and informative in-services we all love to go to before school starts.

Anyway, just wanted to pop back on and say "hi"

Definitely busy!  The busy wasn't too bad, just tiring.  Watching your child scream in pain and beg you for help when there was nothing you could do was agonizing.  Because of the recent discovery of having Von Willebrand's (blood clotting disorder), there was really only Tylenol with codeine to give to him after surgery and he couldn't tolerate it on his stomach.  I felt so helpless.  But, it's over and he's fine, thank God! 

Now, it's onward and upward to the next challenge ;)
