It's Been a Wild Week...

...and it's only Wednesday.

After Sunday morning worship, Josh and I took the boys to school for lunch and to hang fliers for the Wednesday night college series at church. Have you ever walked a college campus with a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old? Yeah, it takes awhile.

Then we rushed off back to church to prep for Rainbow Village, but we stopped for something to eat first. Liam got to hold the cheeseburger all by himself in the car. When I pulled up to the building, I turned around and found L Child with 3 pieces of the cheeseburger and covered in ketchup. I had to take off his sweater vest and slacks. Of course, I didn't have another outfit. So he went to church in a dress church and a diaper.
No shoes.
Yep, we were that family.

Thankfully, I was able to hide Liam in Rainbow Village until after church when we were leaving. Someone asked if Liam had Mountain Dew in his sippie cup because if he did, we could win the WT Award for the evening.
Whew! We dodged that bullet; he had water.

Last night the electricity went out right at bedtime so we had to calm the kids down in complete darkness.

I had a temporary crown put on last week, and I was still in pain yesterday.
So I got to have an unexpected root canal this morning.
Not fun.
I had to stop them twice when they got started on my tooth because I could still feel the pain. After half my face was numb (including my left ear), I finally couldn't feel anything. I was in more pain afterwards than I thought I would be, and I could barely talk. I had to miss a meeting and cancel my afternoon classes, but I had to grade some pchem homework first. Fastforward to tonight. I bribed my kids with Scooby Doo, and I'm blogging and watching my seasons of The Office because I feel pretty dizzy and tired from the pain meds. Here's to hoping for a better day tomorrow! I got a pchem exam to write!

And to avoid this post from being a downer, some GOOD things that happened this week...
Watching the boys enjoy the fountains on campus
Watching Case run laps around the clock tower on campus
Watching Liam watch students play basketball - and loving it!
Enjoying the "no-electricity" after the kids went to bed...taking time to just talk with Josh - with no TV distractions.
I got to blog today - A LOT! A nice thing to do when you feel tired and icky.
