Nothing like the unexpected to completely derail progress. If you can call rewriting eight pages for nothing progress. But it made me realize how great it's been this year: everyone's been healthy!
During the last school year, we spent eight solid months with one of the two boys home for one or two days each week. I had three weeks last year during which I had a whole five-day work week to get things done. Yep, three weeks.
This year, they've had about five sick days between them.

*stops to appreciate just how wonderful it's been that we've all been healthy*
*knocks on wood again*
I can't begin to express how grateful I have been for that time.
It even makes up for the dreaded email that landed in my inbox on Friday: lice. At the school, in the rooms where Boss Man's been lately. The same rooms where I recently found him wearing a crown.
Saturday involved a fine-tooth comb, a bright light, a magnifying glass, and a lot of time with the kids in front of a movie and me inspecting every inch of their scalps and hair. We got lucky—no need to shave their heads.
*knocks on wood some more*
Now, back to that chapter...
