Less than stellar

That has been the kind of week we've had here at the Williams' house. I feel like all I've done all week is run around like a chicken with it's head cut off. Somehow I became in charge of some things in my district (???how did that happen, maybe I volunteered for one of them???), both of them have meant meetings, aaack. One of my friends had a baby, I want to munch his sweet little feet, and of course we had to visit the hospital and take dinner this week because I need newborn sweetness so my fill is met without having one of my own.

Laine, bless her heart, has had the stye from HELL this week. I can't even explain to you how horrible it looked. I should have taken a picture but really, it was so bad I didn't want to. She has been to the pediatrician and the pediatric opthamologist. She is on an antibiotic and a eye ointment. The stye actually burst last night, much to our relief, and so it looks better and Laine feels better. And I mean by looking better that it's smaller, however no less gross looking. I don't even know how she was seeing around that thing! it's almost in the corner of her eye.

Jonathan is feeling lots of stress with his job right now. Please pray for him, he has done a huge thing for our family by moving jobs and I want him to feel Happy he made the switch. AND let me tell all of you how awesome Jonathan is! He was supposed to be home early today and that was going to be great because he could help with taking supper to the Crowell's and then I could go get my haircut at 8 tonight. Well, things went yucky in Georgetown and he couldn't leave until 5:30 and it takes 3 hours to get home. I was really disappointed about cancelling my haircut so he called and found a high schooler to come over while I go get my hair did! What a guy! I love him so much!

Columbus Day Weekend!

We (the kids and I) made the trip to San Angelo last weekend, we had so much fun. It's great now that the kids are a little older, they entertain each other so that the adults can visit! We spent the weekend eating (Linda, thanks for dinner on Friday night, and lunch and breakfast, OK pretty much all the food all weekend long) making bows, fixing jewelry, and talking. We took a trip to the park on Sunday morning, the kids had a blast!

We headed home on Sunday and then took a trip to the Zoo with Mere, Ryan, and Blake on Monday morning. It was a great day for the zoo, a great day at the zoo for me is a day you don't sweat.
