Wow, time flies...

...it's been a week since I last wrote. And a crazy week it's been, too. On Thursday, we had a chorus performance at an Interfaith Service. We sounded awful, lol. :p At least for the first song. Seeing as we'd had two days' notice, and hadn't really had much time to rehearse. Yeah, the first song was embarrassing. But the second and third turned out really well. Overall, it was a fun time. Then Friday was spent cleaning the house. Dave had decided to come home early from school to help out. So while I took Kaylee to the dr (her clogged tearducts had gotten really bad again, and I finally gave in and went for some antibiotic eyedrops), Dave decided to clean up the bedroom. I was gone almost an hour, and thought good, Dave should be just about done when I get home. Got home, and almost fell over when I saw the bedroom. Apparently, cleaning wasn't enough, and Dave decided to rearrange the whole room. Not such a bad idea, except Kaylee was more than ready for a nap, and she sleeps in our bed... So, I gave him another half hour and went to pick up Tyler and his friend from school. By the time I got back, Kaylee was losing it, but the bedroom was fortunately done. Of course, it had taken much longer than planned, so all of a sudden we were behind on our cleaning schedule. Saturday was crazy, too. We spent the morning cleaning some more, and then Dave and the boys went to the football game. I was planning on putting Kaylee for a nap so I could do more cleaning (yes, our apartment had been neglected for a while...). And you guessed it, the one day she only slept for half an hour... And nothing got done. Oh well. Around dinner time we left for SLC to go pick up my parents from the airport (see now why we had to clean so much???). We got there just as they had arrived, waited for the luggage, and went right home. How nice of them to be half an hour early! Made for not quite such a late night. Sunday morning was like Christmas morning for the boys. They got to help my parents unpack the suitcases, and found all kinds of treasures. Fun! Monday and Tuesday just kind of flew by, too. It's been fun to have some visitors. Especially the boys have been enjoying their Oma and Opa. Kaylee isn't quite sure what to think. She's a very attached baby, to say the least. :p But she's warming up to them, too. Hey, anyone with a pair of hands to hold on to and walk around with must be a great person, right?! :o) So, here we are, Wednesday, and still lots to do in preparation for Thanksgiving tomorrow. This is going to be our first time doing the whole meal by ourselves, and I'm trying to figure out the logistics of getting all the food made with only a half-size oven available. A whole different rant altogether. Whoever thought of putting a half-size oven/stove into a 3 bdr. apartment, anyway? Um, yeah, large families tend to live here... Anyway, my week in a nutshell...
