Crazy week = No Blogging.
Oldest son with bronchitis + approaching end of high school swim season = Not ideal situation.
Oldest son getting over bronchitis = Happiness.
Oldest son giving Mom bronchitis = Very sick Meredith.
Sick Meredith = missed week of work, missed visits with ill Mother in Nursing Home, fatigue and sore muscles from coughing.
Kitchen granite delivered on Thursday = Happiness.
Wrong granite delivered on Thursday = Big bummer as now kitchen will not be completed for two more weeks.
Mother-in-law visiting = Happiness.
Mother-in-law visiting without a functioning kitchen = Frustration.
Unpacking kitchen/laundry = Happiness.
Having to wash dishes in my bathroom sink for two more weeks = Frustration.
Unpacking, taking care of sick son, taking care of sick Me = No time for knitting or crochet.

Hope your week = Happiness!!!

Ohhhhhh no! Being sick with all that frustration = even MORE frustration! You poor baby! Wish I was next door...I'd happily take care of you and yours! You could pass your dishes over the back wall and I could re-deliver them clean and full of yummy eats. =) And I so feel for the comment about muscle fatigue from coughing. Whenever I get a violent cough I VOW to start doing sit-ups regularly so my stomach muscles won't get ripped apart from coughing. There is nothing worse! Again...poor baby! That kitchen will be so worth it when it's all done, but stepping through the whole reconstruction thing is U-G-L-Y!!!! Hugs to you my sweet blog friend. I would love to have your address...if you're willing to share with me, send me an email to valover11484@yahoo.com. I promise to keep it to myself and use it only for joyful purposes! A.

OH MEREDITH I AM SO SORRY YOU ARE ILL, WITH ALL YOU HAVE TO DO THESE DAYS.......HOPE YOUR SON GETS WELL SOON, AND YOU....TRY AND GET PLENTY OF REST WITH HOT CHICKEN SOUP, AND HOT TEA......IT DOES MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD. RUB YOUR CHEST WITH VICKS, AND PUT ON WARM PJ'S CRAWL INTO BED AND WATCH A GOOD MOVIE, AND YOU WILL GRADUALLY FALL A SLEEP.....GET WELL SOON....RIZZI

Yikes! It sounds like you've had a largely miserable week :( I'm so sorry you've been sick along with your son and fighting the frustration of your house as well. I am glad that you've been able to see some of the happiness amidst the gloom though. That takes a special person :) Once your house is complete I'm sure you'll be immensely satisfied on multiple levels! I do hope you get to feeling better and that this next week treats you well. Best Wishes!

Aww... Hope you all get feeling better. I've done the bathroom dishes thing before. NO FUN!

Claudia said...

Feel better, sister. I didn't know you could give bronchitis to someone else! I hope you feel better soon - bronchitis is no fun at all. I used to get it quite a bit in my smoking days long ago.

Say hi to Grace for me.

I'm sorry to hear that your sick on top of the madness. Hang in there and take very good care of yourself!

Oh goodness.. tough times for you. I have chronic bronchitis, in other words, if I get a cold or flu it almost invariably goes into my lungs and the dreaded B. How frustrating to have your new counter tops be the wrong ones.. sheesh.. can't wait to see it done, though. Hope your next week is better.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Hi Meredith, What a week you have had, so sorry to heard that. Lots of tea, rest and TV is what you need and of course loved ones to help mom. One disappointment after another, life sure is a test, but we come out stronger, so they say. Hope you are feeling lots better soon and able to do a little yarny goodness while you recoup. xoRobin❤
