Crazy week

22 08 2008

It’s been a week since my last post.  And, what a wild week it has been!  This week has been an absolutely crazy week in our household.  We have added not one, but two people to our little home!

First, our 17 year old neice decided last Sunday to come live with us for the school year.  We had invited her a few days prior, and after mulling it over for a few days, she made the decision to move in.  So, we have been in scramble mode trying to buy grocieries for her, getting her a liveable room, and getting her enrolled in our local high school.  That alone would have made for a crazy week…but it’s just a small part.



Secondly, our precious little daughter was born on Tuesday!  My wife started having irregular contractions over night.  Then, by about 10am, they started getting more regular and more intense.  We went in to the birthing center at noon to get checked.  She was dilated to 2.5 cm so the midwife suggested we go get something to eat and come back in an hour or so.  We went back in about 2pm…and by 4pm, our daughter was born!  I am sure I will have plenty more to say about her in the coming days, but for now, I will just leave it at that.  Isn’t she cute?


On top of those huge impact changes on our lives this week, we are also dealing with an insurance claim to our car (see previous post) and trying to get our son ready to start pre-school for the first time next week (last night was meet the teacher night:))

It has been one of the craziest weeks of my life.  And, that’s about all I have time to write now.
