A Week with Kansas Dad

0.5 days - attempting to discern the problem in our washing machine without success

0.5 days - traveling two hours each way to attend part of the graduation celebration for our wonderful sister-in-law, who is now officially a doctor! ("the kind of doctor who helps you feel better when you feel sick," as we say to our doubting First Son)

1 day - attempting to discern the problem in our washing machine, after the repair man expressed confidence Kansas Dad could fix it, without success, dismantling the machine in the process

0.5 days - researching and selecting a new washing machine with Kansas Mom

1 day - suffering through minor outpatient surgery

1.5 days - slowly recovering from said minor outpatient surgery while (amazingly) helping Kansas Mom prepare the house for a party

0.5 days - preparing hamburgers and grilling out while entertaining the students from his major class

Nearly every night this week - waking 2-5 times a night at the cry of a child, the weather alarm, or pain

We are tired, glad to have survived the week, and hopeful next week will be full of clean clothes and absent any surgery.

  1. Sounds like you had a week like I had! Mine is starting to look up again, hope yours is too!

    By the way, I live in your neighboring state-Missouri.


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
