Hi there! Happy Sunday! I hope you've had a great week.
My week was somewhat eventful, though mostly filled by undesirable things. I'm not complaining, though. Everything worked out in the end.
The first part of the week we were reminded that things happen for a reason, and when you work hard to help yourself, God finds ways to give you a little boost. Things didn't turn out the way we had hoped, but they turned out much better than they could have. For that, we are thankful!
On Wednesday I stayed home from work with some sort of stomach bug. I hate staying home from work. I always feel so guilty. But I also think it's rude to go to work when you are sick and risk spreading germs to your workmates. By Thursday I was mostly feeling better and went back to work, and by Friday I was good as new again.
Thursday was the First Day of School for the girls! They were both sorry to see their Summer come to an end, but excited to get back to the classroom and to be with their friends again. We have one on her last year in elementary school, and one on her last year in middle school. Big year for them both!
Friday was spent waiting and preparing for Hurricane Irene's arrival, and Saturday was spent watching her. We are in Central North Carolina, so fortunately for us we only had to endure her outer bands. We did have a little bit of rain and quite a bit of wind. Our only damage was to a beautiful tree in the circle of our cul-de-sac.
I hope you've had a good week. Did you do anything exciting?
