I know I haven't been around. Things have been...crazy.

Last week--for the WHOLE week--I dealt with a stomach bug that hit my oldest. It pretty much stayed with him the whole week. Next, my five year old got sick....the day we were supposed to leave to visit family. That same day, the youngest got sick. I spent the entire week up to my elbows in ick. I've done so much laundry--the piles of waiting-to-be-folded clothes teeter in their baskets, threatening to topple.

Last week's time was important to me. I needed that time to work on two research papers. The first paper is due tomorrow. I've been working my behind off the last two days trying to catch up on the valuable time I've missed.

On the bright side, school is almost over for this semester. This weekend I'm going away for Thanksgiving. One whole week in which I am not responsible for cleaning house or cooking! (I'll help my in-laws, of course!) I can sleep in, pig out, catch up on my knitting! I CAN'T WAIT! I just need to get through this week.

I have one other little thing to report. I've finally gotten my hands on a WiiFit! I loooovee it! I haven't had much time to play with it, but I like it so far!

So, that's all for now. I'll probably be MIA for the next two weeks, but I'll post pictures after returning from New York! I always get such good photos!
