Thank you!

We made it home just fine and the trip was uneventful, thankfully.  Well, except that Maggie had me laughing the whole way home.  She's so funny!

Before we left for Boston I went by Harlie's audiologist's office to pick up a device she ordered for us. It acts as headphones, since it is difficult to wear headphones with a hearing aid.  She wears it around her neck and a cord from it gets plugged into the place where headphones would get plugged into.  Then you turn it on, and the sound goes - wirelessly - into her hearing aid.  Pretty cool, huh?  I couldn't get it to work on the way to Boston.  But I tried again at the airport leaving Boston.  I still couldn't get it to work.  Then I tried again on the plane - she wanted to watch Sponge Bob (never give up, right?).  Finally!  I got it to work and it was AWESOME!  She loved it!  This is going to be so great for school and for watching movies in the car, etc.  YAY!  I love that device!!!

Tom picked us up and we went home and had some really good sandwiches.  You know, with deli fresh meats and crisp lettuce on really good bread?  Yum.  Then I went upstairs and got into bed and took a nice long, much needed nap.  Whew!

It's taken me a few days to get back into the groove.  I have felt so super tired - like to my core.  I made myself take a class at the gym and then I went for a run on Sunday.  Today I stayed home and went through all the kids' toys.  They seemed to be everywhere and apart and it was stressing me out.  So, today me and the boys went through all the rooms and separated the toys into throw away, keep, and give away.  And now I feel much better.

So, do you remember this picture I posted last week?


Well, it is now hanging in my living room!  Can you believe some really nice, awesome, thoughtful and anonymous person sent this to me?!  Seriously!  I am SO loved - just like the sign says!  Thank you whoever you are!!!  I love it and it looks so fitting on my living room wall.  Just like it's always been there. I LOVE IT!!!  Thank you!

This one is going to be a short one.  Still trying to get caught up.  And we're watching the Olympics.  So, I gotta go.  I have more to write and will hopefully be able to soon.

Much love!
