We made it through the week.

I had high hopes for this week. Darren and Casey were going on a campout and I knew it would be hard to run the business and keep everything going at home but...Wow! I don't know how single Moms do it. Murphy's law was alive and well and my nice and easy schedule that we had planned turned into craziness at Classic Floor Care. Jobs cancelled and rescheduled, employees were overworked, customers were "a little disappointed", the equipment broke down, and opportunities for new business had to be "managed" by me. It was all going to be worth it because the boys were having a wonderful bonding experience. Hmmm...the guys returned last night from the high adventure trip with the young men of our ward.  They made it back alive although I think it will be a long time before they go tent camping again.  Casey said it was fun, he learned how to play poker really well (what??), caught a fish, and got eaten by mosquitos. Darren stayed at camp for two days and  then he walked down the hill by himself, exhaused (he hadn't slept since he left home) and sick.  After an i.v., treatment for nausua and a burst eardrum he was able to leave the hospital and spent the next night at the Easy 8 and waited for the rest of the campers to come down the mountain and go home.  So much for the "bonding experience."

It wasn't all bad...
  • Hannah started cheerleading this week and I'm having fun as an assistant coach.  The little girls are adorable, I'm getting some exercise, and so far, only a little drama. 
  • Katie and Brandon got home from their trip to Idaho and they had fun visiting with the Guthries and Jeremy and family.
  • Brendon had a lot of playdates and went bowling and saw a couple of movies.
Overall, we made it through, but an uneventful week would be appreciated...soon.
