Week in the Life – Friday

There isn’t much for Friday. Usually it’s a bit of a hopping day, waking up early to send stuff for Gingerscraps, the digital scrapbooking forum I work for. But, I woke up yesterday seriously not feeling good. I have sinus issues and that was causing problems up top. I have IBS, and that was flaring up, and causing me issues there. So, I spent a good portion of the day passed out, quite literally, on the couch. I was just exhausted and worn out completely. 🙁 Not a good way to spend the day. I only took like 13 pictures all day. That’s abnormal for me, for the most part. Especially when I’m doing things like this.

And today’s blog is super late going up because today my son had a Boy Scout thing selling popcorn (hey, if you want to buy some, let me know. I’m totally serious! :D). But, the post is here! Enjoy!

Before school, the kids watched a little of the original live coverage on MSNBC. Madison was horrified, and Ethan was full of questions, as usual. We gave them the story of where we were, how we felt, all of that. This is the first year that they really understand what it means, what happened, and why they have so much focus on it.

My husband was also off for a scheduled day off (USPS carriers have rotating days off), so we had a bit of a date day, without the actual date, :lol:.

Now, on to the actual pictures!

The kids saw the second plane hit in “real time” and Madi was appalled.
