whew, what a week (or two)

Benjamin has a lovely Aunt called Mary. She recently sent a package of gifts for the boys. In the package she included this card especially for me:
It made me laugh. : )
I do love to blog, and I enjoy the interaction I have with all my bloggy friends. I've been missing it, but I have had a very crazy couple of weeks. I'll summarize in list form (lists are so efficient and tidy).
The bad:
~My wisdom teeth were taken out last Tuesday. (It was a lot less scary than I thought it would be, and the dentist did a very good job.)
~I spent a lot of last week on my mom's couch not doing anything but nursing my poor, sore mouth.
~I managed to catch a cold which I lovingly shared with my sons.
The good:
~I am recovering quickly from my wisdom teeth being extracted.
~We apparently only have a head cold and not the swine flu which is going around our town.
~Benjamin made me a marvelous early birthday dinner, and we had fun having friends over to enjoy it with us.
~I have been able to make tomato soup from my own home grown tomatoes!
~I got to play my flute in church two Sundays ago. I love being able to work with Benjamin and minister to others through our music.
~I finished a couple of significant calligraphy projects!
~I got to go to Helena with Benjamin for him to take a final exam. We had a lovely, relaxed time chatting and being friends. And the boys both behaved beautifully!
~My sister-in-law got to spend a couple of nights with us. We always have lots of fun on her visits.
So there's the summary for you. I'll post a few more detailed posts about some of the items on my list as I have time.
