What a crazy week this has been! The announcement of Eric's new job has come with a surprising amount of publicity and Eric has been busy with that. I launched Rooted Vegan with my friend Kate and the last few days of prep were intense. I kept reminding myself that things would calm down this weekend, but they did not. Here is a little recap of the crazy whirlwind weekend we have had.

So as you can see things have been cray-zay here. I am inclined to take this day off and accomplish nothing at all. Did you have a crazy weekend?

Have a great weekdays this week! No more crazy days for you until Friday! LOL

Sarah Purdy said...

Take a break, Supermom! You absolutely deserve a day off. The dishes will still be there later.

Michelle said...

I'm exhausted just reading about your weekend! There is definitely a reason why God gives babies to the young!

Most of us "elders" look back fondly on the days when we had such full days and nights--but realize that we need to be in the more restful phase of life now.

Grandma Grace says you need a dishwasher... I think it's high time to teach Cordelia to wash dishes...

Maria Rose said...

Trust me, I want a dishwasher, but we can't afford it until we pay off medical bills (in a zillion years). I already have Cordelia washing dishes, but she only washes non- breakaes and the process doesn't exactly save on time.

Victoria said...

...gave a dinner party, which is always crazy. I too think you should put a "dishwasher" at the top of your wish list!! (Come on Maria, just sell a painting...this is Mike's answer to everything on my wish list!)

Kate said...

Aww... those prefolds look awfully familiar! Have fun! I, too, want a dishwasher. The Mister and I often out them off during midterms and finals, then we're left with Dish County; a place where no human wishes to travel.

I spent part of my weekend - Friday and Saturday - with 60 college students. And two alpacas, 1 llama, 1 donkey and 3 sheep. So it was exhausting, a wee bit smelly and fun.
