I made pear butter which was a multi-step process over a couple days. We went to the pumpkin patch. We had a friend from Seattle visit on Saturday. Rosie had roseola for a few days and was really fussy with a fever; I only knew it was roseola after the fever left and a rash appeared. I got together with my new friend Lucy who is new on staff here with her family. I did our bimonthly shopping trip which was particularly horrid this week... not to point fingers, but shopping with a two year old alone would be difficult enough but adding in a three year old and an infant makes me look like a traveling circus I guess. Especially during bathroom/diaper changing trips. I get the most incredulous looks when I am in the bathroom with all three girls trying to manage everyone going potty and washing hands at too-tall sinks and too-tall hand-dryers. It's pretty funny and I can laugh about, especially the next day.
Well, looking back over this post I realize why I didn't do any knitting this week, especially since I didn't even include the regular daily stuff of running the household and the incredibly repetitive and mindnumbing work (just to be honest...) of teaching two small children how to love each other and play together without screaming tantrums and hitting or yelling or tattling. But I won't share much more about that because really, who wants to hear that part of my week? :) But just know that it's there on a very regular basis.
