last Tuesday, my mom had knee replacement surgery. The surgery went well, she’s in good spirits, but has a long recovery ahead of her. I’d love any extra prayers you can spare. :)
My grandpa lives with my family, so Lily, Ben, Adam, and I headed to my parents’ house last Monday night where we stayed for the week. We watched a lot of the price is right, drank coffee, ate pepper and egg sandwiches, chatted, and just hung out. My 11 year old sister and 13 year old brother also needed a big sister for the week, and I happily took on that role. Being a chauffer, greeting them with excited kids at the bus stop, spoiling ‘em with Starbucks fraps, helping out with math homework, and talking about their life.
It’s been a nice week being back at home for the first time in 4 years, but it’s also been busy. Thank God for my mom’s amazing friends who made sure we didn’t have to make dinner. Doug’s been awesome too, keeping the house clean after a long day of work every day, and coming to visit us. My sister came home from school, so we came back to our house on Friday night to get back to a little bit of normal.
So that’s where I’ve been (hello, one blog post last week!), how was your week?
