Some Days Are Like This

I had a long list of things to do today in preparation for Advent and the feast of St. Nicholas later this week.

I stayed up late last night working on our Jesse Tree, baking a cake for Kansas Dad to take to school today and (later) listening helplessly as Kansas Dad was violently ill.

This morning, Second Son has been getting sick here and there all over the living room. Kansas Dad still feels punk and has a tenure application to finish. (It's due Monday; pray for him!)

So I guess I'll muddle through the day and get done what I can.

Now that I think about it, that's how a great many of our days go.


  1. Ugh! I hope everyone is well again soon! I will pray that Kansas Dad is able to do everything he needs to by Monday.

  2. Prayers and sacrifices for you.

  3. Thanks, ladies! Yesterday went remarkably well. I finished my to-do list and Kansas Dad made great progress on his tenure application. He should be finishing it up today.

    Kansas Dad was up with Second Son who was still sick last night, but we're hoping today will be the last day of quarantine and no one else will get sick.


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
