Lately, life has been insane. There were a few days in the past weeks that I spent all day in bed with my crappy immune system. Living in community means we all get each other's germs, and while everyone else was in bed with head colds, I ended up at urgent care getting breathing treatments. Ugh. It's times like these that I want to give all single parents an award, because I can't imagine being sick like that and having to keep up with my crazy, bouncing Nut child.
Also, today launches our Summer Madness, in which we have 3 interns living with us...so you know the last couple of weeks have included some serious catching up on house work! My house hasn't been this clean in, well, I won't say, but awhile. The interns are all guys, so, I will be even more out-numbered than usual for the next few months! If you need me, you can find me in my room.
And, if all that wasn't enough fun, we had a Memorial Day weekend Medlen Family Reunion out at Andrew's aunt and uncle's farm in Mexico, Missouri. We slept in a tent. Every time I sleep in a tent and spend most of the day outside with bugs, sweat, and the smell of my own armpits I am reminded why I choose to live in the city. But, aside from the father-in-law's foot-breaking incident, everyone had a great time.
We have just a quick moment to catch our breath before we dive into the summer schedule of insanity. Here we go...
