I thought for three months now that one of our boxes from Switzerland had been lost (or stolen) on it's way here-- the one with our computer in it, with FIVE YEARS WORTH of PICTURES on it!.!.!. I was sick-- two babies born and growing up--all of the little video clips of my kids for FIVE YEARS, speaking their first words, dancing, playing, swimming in the ocean-- all of our travels in Europe, you get the picture. FIVE YEARS of pictures. *****MY MOM JUST CALLED AND TOLD ME SHE FOUND IT!!!!!!!****** Crying such happy, grateful tears. So happy. Sooooooo happy.

Sunday - Stake Conference, Henri and his mom over for dinner
Monday - Jethro baseball game
Tuesday - YM and Activity Days
Wednesday - Orientation piano lessons for Hazel and Jethro (luckily I found someone who seems great who is willing to come to my home to give the lessons), Talmage's last soccer
Thursday - Hazel and I had mother-daughter bookgroup
Saturday - pick up Jethro's glasses, Brett, Hazel, Ethne, Talmage, ward service project all morning, 2:00 nurse came to draw blood, etc. for Brett and I as part of the life insurance process, 5:30 Jethro baseball game
And somewhere in there I planted peas, planted an apple tree, Brett's been working on shelves for a linen closet, taking apart his tractor to fix something on it, building a little PVC pipe chicken run, call about getting different lessons set up, and obviously normal things like getting groceries and cooking and cleaning, and so on. And also (just to keep things in perspective), I still have several duffle bags of clothes on my floor in my room, waiting to be unpacked and sorted into closets and dressers. I don't know when (or if?) that will ever happen.
I realize that this is a very normal, every-week type of schedule for a lot of people. But I am not a lot of people. And it feels kind of crazy to me. But it is getting better actually and I am not feeling so crazy. Only about a month left of school.
