I feel like I say this often...it was an eclectic week here in the C household. But for real. Many crazy things, some of which I'll go into more detail tomorrow.
I had my last treatment on Monday and it knocked me to my knees. On Tuesday we had a blizzard that left us with two FEET of snow. On Wednesday we made the difficult decision to put a very sick dog down. Two dear friends, both my age, suffered painful events...one lost her mother to a brain tumor, the other received news that her father had had a heart attack. Thankfully he had successful open heart surgery.
On the other side of our world, Shaun's financial services business is officially official since it finally cleared through all the SEC checks. He's been finding that there truly is the need he recognized and its such a good fit for a tax professional and a financial advisor to be one in the same person....all that information together helps in making the best decisions. Its exciting to see all his labors coming together and I'm so proud of him.
And....my cousin Melody was here. She has settled in and taken right over the things that need to be attended to. Before she leaves in a couple weeks I'll have to have her do a guest post...maybe the "tell-all, tabloid version of what really goes on here. :)
Speaking of Melody, most of these photos are from her, which is a good thing because I was in bed until Thursday.
We were happy to welcome Melody!
Amanda loves her daddy.
Snowman pancakes to celebrate a snow day.
Another snow day while everyone dug out.
Melody is a good student, learning the fine art of lego aircraft building. :)
Shaun and I cannot be with our kids all the time making decisions for them so we are trying to empower them to make the right choices on their own. I could barely stomach watching moving things, but I watched the movie so Avery and I could talk about the good, bad and ugly when she got home from school.
At one point Aiden came in and asked what I was doing. I told him I was watching Maleficent because Avery was watching it at school and I wanted to be able to talk to her about it. He said, Oh, I guess the teachers don't care about guarding their hearts (referring to the verse I often reference Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.)
As it turns out, Avery left about 20 minutes in and was able to watch an alternative choice.
