This week has been INSANE! 

Tomorrow is Janelle's baby shower, Sunday my mom is having the family reunion at her house and then today Elliana was able to come HOME! 

All of this means a LOT of work for my mom. She has a good heart, but she is very disorganized, scatter brained, and doesn't keep house well. Which means she also stresses... a lot. And doesn't sleep which would put her into a depression. Janelle (obviously) can't help. Karissa my other sister, doesn't cook and waits till the last minute before she cleans (though she does a good job). And my dad is sick and suddenly working all weekend. (WTH?! He has known there was going to be a lot of company this weekend for over a month, and working weekends is optional)


So, Wed she and Karissa came over to put together all the decorations we worked from 5 -11. To get them all done. Yesterday our whole fam went over and worked  on making the desserts from till 7, Then we went back over today and finished the rest of the food, but we had to get there when dh was on his way to work... at 5 am. 

I am so glad we did even though it made for a long long day because with Janelle and Elliiana coming home, mom had to run out some food for supper for them. If I hadn't helped she wouldn't have even started on the food until 1 pm. 

I am EXHAUSTED, but hopefully this helped mom out enough to not let her slip into the stress she usually hits around big events....

It sounds like your week was busier than mine and that's definitely not a good thing.  Hope you'll have time to relax soon.
