I feel like I'm always coming back on Mondays with some version of, 'what a weekend'. Though usually what I mean is ,it was crazy or emotionally draining or just too busy not awesome. Here I am at another weekend and yes it falls in the above set of categories. Friday afternoon the husband started feeling ill and went down with the same stomach bug the children had just gotten over. I still have yet to get it, or I did, was asymptomatic and became a carrier. Either way I think I dodged a bullet. Then Saturday while we were hibernating because of the sick, the family issue I mentioned last week ramped up to almost tragic causing my stress level to shoot through the roof. The stress of that wasn't relieved until late last evening when things settled down again. I'm honestly surprised I managed to get anything done at all.
The only other tatting I got done over the weekend was finishing up a couple of small orders that are still sitting in a pile. Since today is a Federal holiday, there's no mail. I hate having things sit around longer than they need to, but I can't send them by pigeon, so they wait.
Today the husband has the day off work and the kids have no school and while everyone is finally healthy, I have a feeling we'll be spending the day inside with video games and maybe some movies. I hope now that the stress has mostly dissipated I can get some real tatting done, but no promises, it's still a Monday.
