And the Week Comes to an End...

Pink-eyed girl

Before I start, I just want to remind everyone that you have until tonight to enter for a chance to win a $25 Walmart gift card from Olay!  Just visit this post from the other day.

It's been an eventful week.  Actually, a week I'm not sorry to see come to an end.  Not like it was a bad week overall, but it was a little out of the ordinary in a lot of ways.  This week we saw an unsuccessful first swim lesson, a bout of pink eye (causing me to work from home on Tuesday to care for the Princess), my husband hit the half-century mark (which isn't a bad thing, just relevant), his receipt of his AARP card the day before (tell me that isn't cold and cruel?), the cancellation of his birthday party due to an impending, much-anticipated, "monster" snow storm, the incredible disappointment of said "monster" snow storm that barely amounted to much (and shut down the whole region for no reason and causing me to work from home again on Wednesday), the making of a (successful) snowman, an impromptu "little-bit-of-snow-day" celebration with some neighbors for Steve's birthday, and...oh, I guess that's it. 

That's enough, right?

Samantha and the dirty snowball.  She rolled the head all by herself!

By the way, can I just say that putting drops in the eyes of an anxious child is not. fun...  And the crazy thing is, her resistance is primarily to me.  Daddy?  Not a problem.  So the 5 days of drops supposedly 3x/day is really 2x/day since I'm the only one around in the mornings to do it. 

Anyway, happy weekend to you all, and to my US peeps who don't live in Arizona, don't forget to change your clocks on Saturday night!

She looks much better than J did!! Once we got the gunk, puss and swelling to go down....we found broken blood vessels! I'm thinking we caught it from Chuck E Cheese! Drops are no bueno! What a fight!!

Claire hates getting drops in her ears I can't even imagine if I'd have to put them in her eyes!
Love the snowman with the sunglasses! Hope your weekend is great.

I can't even put drops in my own eyes, let alone anyone elses! I, too, am very happy for a new week to being. Both of my boys have been to the hospital in the last week!!!
