OMG - I got my table!!!!

Officially the kitchen is done.  Pictures to follow.  The last few days have been filled with craziness, and heartbreak.  I am good.  Honest.  But not everyone in my situation is.

Monday....I am getting ready for the week.  I am in the middle of cleaning the house.  I used to be able to do it in one day, but those days are gone.  I did floors today.  Bathrooms and kitchen were yesterday.

Tuesday....I am supposed to dust.  I do.  I hate it, but yikes, really?!??!  Why does that much dirt come into your house?!?!?!?  Tuesday PM - there is water underneath my sink..........FRICK....PTSD is kicking in....text my contractor.  Nolan and I get the table, chairs, and potato and onion holder.....yay.

Wednesday at 7:47, plumbers show up.  Really?!?!?!  I was told 8 to 8:30.  I am in my robe and my plumbers are relentless!!!!!  Jim was like, "You should see my puppy, but you are in your robe." and Eric was like, "I heard you have a skunk and a possum in your crawlspace."  Anyway, they fixed it and I told them to never come back and I know they will.  WHATEVER.  I love them.

So, this week is busy.  Then Nolan tells me he is sick on Wednesday.  Stomach problems.  But, as soon, as school starts he is FINE.  Really.  Well, stay in your bed and not video or tv.....really?!?!?!  Yes.  Really.  I had SO much to do today and Nolan screwed it all up.  BUT, I did teach him things like, "how to refurbish a wood piece" and "how to "perk up" a lawn area piece, but really?!?!?!? "

So, here I am.  I have done all my work, but then I screwed up my PTA Council Budget because I was in the wrong year?!?!?!?!  OMG.  I suck.  I love my President....she is really nice and supportive, even when I suck.  Anyway, I am going to review it in the morning and send it off.  I hate software.

I was at school for an amazing museum of inventors on Tuesday.  I will be there for Bingo for Book on Thursday also where I just got bags for the kids that "win" so many books for the summer reading program.  FYI - PTA got all the books 3500-4000 of them.  I have been put in charge of Student Leadership and they now are proving so strong and makes me misty.....they are my kids......

Be advised that all the above is noise.......On Tuesday, I was at school and I was idle....I know, right?!?!?!  So I was reading the walls of the school and there was a wall of, "What I want to solve in the world...."  I read the different responses...all sweet and real and then....."I want to solve cancer."  Author, Nolan Hainsworth.  Pause.  Exhale.  Breathe.  Seriously?!?!?!  FRICK.  Pause.  Exhale.  Pause.  FRICK.  When is this going to leave us?!?!?!  He never mentioned anything to me.   A couple days later I talked to Nolan about it.  Nolan was like, "I want to be your oncologist."  I was like, "Nolan, really think about this.  I know you would make an amazing surgeon, but I an not sure you could do the oncologist route.  Hank could talk to you.  I know he would.  He loves you."  (How lucky am I?!?!?)  "Nolan, surgery right now is like video game on humans."  "OMG MOMMY!  That is awesome!!!!"  Lets remember that Nolan wanted to be a surgeon and cut people up and then leave them when he was two also, remember...he wanted to go into the armed forces...this is a win for a mama!

So, there you have it.  I thought life was all about what happens next and it is really in someone else's hands.  It hurts when I see my boys hurt, but I chose this path of honestly and clarity.  People die.  Mason is so comfortable with this he is like, "When this house is mine and Grandma and Grandpa die..."  and I am like, "Mason, better to plan on your own than plan on our death...." I was supposed to die before 2/16/2009.

Happy Wednesday,
