OK…so the title is a bit sarcastic because it really hasn’t been that amazing! It’s been eventful at times and boring the other times. Though incredibly busy. And school hasn’t even started yet!
I had all kinds of posts being prepared for this week and of course that means that life took over making me lucky to get anything done.
Tuesday, I was spending practically 1/2 the day trying to fill out an application for a new checking account with an online bank I already do business with. I gave up after calling three times, but I may need to call them again today because they still haven’t fixed the problem! I messed up the application because of information they gave me and was unable to correct it so I’m trying to get them to delete the application so I can start it over.
On Wednesday, my 8-year-old had a horrible nose bleed (both nostrils) for no reason we can figure out. He’s had it before, but it’s been about 2-3 years. That took a good 30 minutes to stop, then I had all the clean-up to do, while he sat watching cartoons like it never happened. Kids are so resilient!
Thursday was another busy day. We did a quick grocery shopping in the morning for buy one, get one free items. In the afternoon we had to go to my 11-year-old’s new school to pick up his 7th grade schedule and get him the required 7th grade shot. I dragged him around a bit looking for his classes and timing how long it will take for him to get to his Gifted Social Studies class from his Algebra I Honors class on the other side of the school. Lucky for him all his other classes are in the same two hallways next to each other! His classes are: Gifted Language Arts, Band (he’ll be playing the baritone), Technology (1st semester–he chose Art for the 2nd semester, but we haven’t received that schedule yet), Algebra I Honors (HS credit), Gifted Social Studies, and Gifted Science. I’m hoping it will be a good year for him!
That evening I was getting ready to prepare dinner and my 8-year-old comes running out of his brother’s room screaming and crying. I immediately thought his nose started bleeding again, but it turned out that he clipped his finger in a folding chair and tore a chunk off the pad of a finger. More blood and cleaning up, though this one wasn’t as messy. It did push dinner back some though.
Yesterday I also found out I won a prize from Stacks and Stacks blog giveaway! So that is one good thing that happened this week!
Hopefully the rest of the week will contain less blood and more good! *Crossing Fingers*
