We had a close call this weekend. My oldest daughter was tentatively diagnosed with Whooping cough and our family was quarantined for three days until the results came in -negative! So we had three days of family togetherness which was nice. Rearranging work schedules was not fun but it all turned out fine in the end. We have had a local outbreak and one child in her class was positively diagnosed.
I am having a big case of the blahs. I'm feeling panicked/anxious which is typical for me in the week before my period. I'd really like to crawl into bed with a meaningless but fun book and an endless cup of hot cocoa.
I am going to 'Sin City' in a couple of weeks for a conference-I need to log 30 hours of CE every other year for my professional license. I am looking forward to it, I need some help to turn me off this trail of burn-out I am currently on. I dread it because i know i will be in 'domestic debt' for leaving my husband alone with the girl. I am going to attend some of the small ruminant lectures-goats, sheep, llamas, oh my! If I want to own them I better learn more!
On the up side -while cleaning my closet I found some family reunion/history documents I had stored (thrown) in there. There are stories and drawing of the home my great-great-great-(great?) grandfather lived in Norway. Beltane rituals, food storage and preparation, these are taking on a whole new significance for me as I try to go back (forward) to a new way of life. I will spend some time copying a few stories into my blog as I have time.
