Nothing too fabulous to report
except that this week has been (and the next will be) busy
for a number of reasons:
It is strawberry season, and in my decision to do more things "Super Oberg", I learned how to make freezer jam (um, that was actually ridiculously easy!). My friend, Cheri, and I made 5 batches the other day. I think we have enough jam to last us 1 year....unless I keep pigging out on toast and jam like I have the past few days (yum!).....in that case, our jam may only last us another 2 weeks.
I put on my nursing hat this beauifully-sunny Saturday to go take care of 90 wrinkly, old (and kinda gross) toes.
I had the same conversation with one of my little old ladies 7 times in the 33 minutes that I did her foot cares. So much fun.
Only 4 more days until my sister, Hanna, comes to visit!! Woohoo! I have some yummy dinners to plan and even yummier desserts to make for when she's here.
Kenadie has cut 4 teeth in less than 2 weeks with 2 more on the way! Can you say "fussy child"?
Due to the teething, I have wiped Kenadie's constantly-flowing snotty nose 247 times in the past week. That may be an over-exaggeration....but it may also be completely understated, because I have officially lost the official count (and I have wiped that nose A LOT).
I have completed 15 of the 24 continuing education credits that are required in order to keep and renew my nursing license. Only 9 more credits to go and I'm-too-embarrassed-to-say-how-few days left to do it in! Go me!
Garrett will be done with his 5th trimester of chiropractic school in 5 days. I cannot wait for him to be done!
Then he will only have 17 more months of school, 20 months until he is graduated, and 20+ years to be the Dr. Oz of chiropractors (because I think he'll be pretty awesome). Hallelujah!
In only 7 days, our family is saying "hola" to San Diego and spending 12 fabulous days of sunshine, avocados, carne asada, beach, and good company with Garrett's parents.
I am so excited!!!!!
(Thank you, Sid and Claire, for living in such a wonderful vacation place!)
I have done 0 hours of house-cleaning this week.
But I have worked nearly 20 hours,
have probably spent most of my free time smooching Kenadie's 2 fluffy cheeks,
have had 3 fun, late-night chats with my husband,
and feel like 1 lucky girl.
