Okay, in the blogger world, anyway. I've been so busy at work that I was buried in paperwork. Today I spent the better part of the morning getting things organized and filed. Wheh! I'm glad I am not going to get crushed under an avalanche of filing.
I do have more work to accomplish, but I wanted to touch bases with everyone and assure you all that everything is fine here. How are you doing? Good, I hope
The usual rush is on, Mom's Taxi is in full gear as usual, rushing one kid here, another kid there. Then Tuesday night, Rob cut his hand pretty deeply while cooking dinner. He had a ginsu knife in his right hand (he's left handed). He was reaching for something in the cabinet, when a glass fell toward him. While trying to grab the glass, the knife slipped in his right hand, cutting the skin between his thumb and pointer finger.
We took him to urgent care, but they said it was too deep for them to work on and they sent us to the ER. I dreaded going there, because the wait is always so long. Indeed, the wait was long. We were late picking up Josh from practice, and didn't get home until after ten.
He ended up with six stitches. He was blessed not to have cut the tendon or nerves. He's off work for a week. Oh what fun, right before Christmas. However, I am happy he's going to be okay.
Other than that excitement, life is uneventful. Christmas rapidly approaches...and I am still as unprepared as ever. Each year it gets harder and harder to feel the joy of the season....it just seems there is so much rushing about and so little time to reflect on what is truly wonderful about the season. Sigh. I do look forward to being off for a week between Christmas and New Year's. If that isn't reason to celebrate, I don't know what is! :)
That's it for now. More later.
