There has been a lot going on with us in the past week, not the least of which was the crazy weather that hit the Houston area a few days ago. Thankfully, other than throwing off our routine, the weather did not otherwise impact us. Let's take a look back, shall we?
Last Friday, I headed to La Grange with a few co-workers to volunteer for my company's MS150 team. Brian graciously held down the fort with the twins at home while I kept busy setting up/cleaning up for the event.
On Saturday, it was more of the same but the highlight was getting to play the part of our talk show host for the evening's entertainment:
Ladies and gents, allow me to introduce you to my alter-ego, Manny.
On Monday, the skies opened up and resulted in historic flooding which I'm sure everyone has heard about at this point. Our offices were closed and so was the daycare, so we were hunkered down at home and did our best to combat cabin fever with the Olivers.
On Tuesday, our offices were open but daycare was still closed, so after some frantic early morning schedule shuffling, we shuttled the twins over to Mimi and Granddaddy's house (lifesavers!) to hang out until we were off work.
As usual, they received no attention and had no fun ;)
On Wednesday, we finally had a normal day. Apparently all of the early week's chaos had caught up to us, however, because by the end of the day, it was clear that Colby and I were both a little under the weather. The only scene to share from you that day is this one:
That would be the twins' underwear that I accidentally brought into work with me. #workingmomprobs
On Thursday, this mom called in sick to work, but as everyone knows, there's no such thing as a true day off for moms, so I spent the morning helping drop the kids off at daycare and then taking Colby to the pediatrician in the pouring rain. Thankfully he was well enough to go to school so I was able to spend the rest of the day
coughing and being worthless on the couch recovering.
Trying unsuccessfully to wait out the downpour
Which brings us to today! We have another full weekend ahead, but hopefully we'll have plenty of time to rest so that we'll be back in our normal groove next week. Happy weekend, my friends!
