The Longest Week Ever.

Monday, Mom finds out her surgeon had another oopsie and forgot to let the discharge/nurses know that she needed to be on an antibiotic. So, one week later, with lots of infection, drainage, and her skin on the verge of death; Mom learns that she should've been taking antibiotics all along. In class, we covered another chapter in History, Drew enjoyed Gilgamesh; we turned our sights to Mercury in Science; Grammar, writing and spelling went on in their constant hum-drum; and Reading took a turn for the ... high hopes. Andrew's decided to read three books at once. Normally, we read a long book together and he reads an easier book on his own. This week he couldn't choose between 'Artemis Fowl' and 'James and the Giant Peach,' he decided I should read him both :)

Tuesday, my gramma showed up with an incredible book, 'The Timeline of World History.' It was really incredible, but our day had to be shortened to accomodate her visit. Right before she left, Andrew found our dog, Fred, dead. He was really old (15-16 years) and it appears he was soaking up the sun and just died. I tried to get my assistant, for Cub Scouts, to take the den meeting for me, but couldn't reach her, so we had to wrap Freddie up and leave him in the yard (he's a big dog). I hated to do it, but my hubby said he would be fine. Cub Scouts was.... well. Andrew was voted in as the lead for our Blue and Gold skit (woohoo!) and when we got home we both helped Dad bury Fred. Drew said the Sanctus once we put Fred in the hole. It was sweet.

Wednesday, Gramma came back for her book, but I couldn't go near her. I woke up with a sore/hoarse throat (eye roll). Another short day, because Mom/Magistra was too tired to do much, no History, no Science, again. We did put together and mail our Valentine's cards. My family will be super surprised, because I tend to never mail anything. Karate Wed. night, Drew had a blast, Luke was a pain, and I just wanted to sleep in the car.

Today...... looks slow again. I have to take Jo shopping for her first dance this afternoon and I don't want to do school, I feel like crud. Tomorrow, we're off to my mother-in-law's to use her telescope and work on Astronomy. Saturday there's a b-day party for our neighbor's little girl, oh and Valentine's day. I want to go to bed.

I'm not blogging tomorrow, too much to do, so this is it, my weekly report.
