The littlest member of the family brought home a gift for us this week. If you recognize that very fine-toothed comb up there, you know of what I speak.
I’ve always thought it was rather sweet how the boys end up sleeping together most nights, sharing blankets, pillows, and stuffed animals. And I have never minded it when they wanted to spend the night in my bed while I am away on a trip. This week, though, I’m singing a slightly different tune, as every. single. soft. thing. those two have touched in the last week needs to be laundered.
I’m tempted to make everyone sleep on the cold, hard, kitchen floor tonight until every nit has been picked. Blech. My scalp itches just thinking about it.
This whole thing started two days ago with a call from the school nurse. The day before that it was surprise dental surgery for Neil, which landed him in bed (or on the couch) for most of the day sleeping off the anesthesia, and me in the car picking up medication and playing taxi.
So, yeah, kind of a busy-having, challenging, weird week. It’s taken me three days just to get a small pile of orders out the door, in between laundry processing, scalp treatments, and drug store runs (and if you’re one of my customers who has experienced a delay, I do apologize)!
On the plus side, I bought a rice cooker online, which arrived here in record time, and gave us the most delicious sticky jasmine rice for supper last night. Mmmmm.
Ok, well, I just wanted to check in and let you know I was alive. I owe email to a few of you who were interested in shawl pins, and I will get to it, I promise. For now, though, I have some laundry-related tasks to attend to. Oh, joy.
P.S. Not a fan of bug talk? You’ll be happy to know I’ve been sitting on a less skin-crawly entry since Tuesday, and I expect to get it posted in the next few days. Just waiting for one last little bit of information I need to add.
