A really SUPER day!

Let me first start by explaining that Thursday was a really awful day.

Tucson experienced the coldest temperatures ever!

On my way to take Shyla to daycare I was informed that the pipes at the daycare center were frozen and I needed to take her to another rearranged center. I called my co-worker and told her I would be late to our morning meeting. After dropping her off I hustled back to my car thinking I could perhaps still make it on time. Then I hit ice and fell. Not too hard, my knee took most of the fall, there was blood, there were tears, but I was fine. People at work (surprised that I wasn't my normal 15 minutes early to my meeting) tried to get me to go to the doctor but I knew I was fine, just shocked.

I talked to my sister and found out she had hit her face on her bathroom wall and was bruised. Also found out that her school didn't have water or flushing toilets but they weren't sending anyone home.

Then a pipe burst in our cafeteria, which resulted in the sprinklers going off, which resulted in the fire alarm going off, which resulted in us evacuating at about 9 am. Still very, very cold.

Then I found out that Shyla has another ear infection. My mom took her to see her doctor and apparently one of her tubes got clogged with debris so it wasn't doing its job and an infection formed. So she is back on 2 types of antibiotic. She didn't sleep well all week, but is definitely on the mend. (Thanks, again, Mom!) The mom guilt gets me everytime...I wonder how long she was in pain and I didn't take her to the doctor. Arrggghhhh.

Anyway, after we got through Thursday and Friday it was the weekend and today, Sunday, was a really great day!

We started with a trip to the grocery store. Shyla was a good helper so we got to go to Starbucks for my coffee and her shortbread cookie.

Then we went to the zoo with Aunt Chelsea and Lilly and Zac.

Then she took a 2 1/2 hour nap (after sleeping for 12 hours last night), catching up on the sleep she missed last week.

Then we had fun at my parent's annual Super Bowl Party!

Enjoy some pics and I hope you had a nice weekend too!

Our continual attempt to get a pic of the three kids!

Handsome Zac!

Silly Lilly!

My girl!

And Beth's baby-girl, Sadie, who cries nearly every time I get near her!

That really was a hideous day. I'm glad you survived. I would have recommended a margarita, which is my cure-all, but maybe a mocktail in your current condition.

I'm glad the week ended on a good note...good riddance to last week!

Good riddance to last week indeed! Love you sister!
