Gearing Up

So much to do and I'm just so unmotivated to do it.

DH had surgery to repair a small hernia on Friday. He could have waited longer but since we have no idea if and when his weird neurological symptoms may return and how much time he may end up needing to take off from school, he scheduled the surgery for before school started.

Fortunately they were able to squeeze him in.

Unfortunately we both had to miss some of our week at the shore (my parents rented a place for all of us, including my sister and her family, for the week).

Fortunately they were able to watch the kids so we could deal with the surgery ourselves.

Unfortunately the doctors were not able to do it laproscopically since they had already done that twice before.

Fortunately they sent him home with good drugs.

Unfortunately he's nearing the end of the bottle and he still hurts.

Fortunately he's doing better.

Unfortunately it's not soon enough for either of us.

But that's enough of that.

I still have so much to do to prep for school, to make sure all three kids are ready for school, to figure out how J will be getting to and from school (no bussing for Kindergarten and it's only half day), to sort the mountain of paperwork that is always looming, to do massive amounts of grocery shopping, and to finish organizing the entire house.

And maybe figure out how to bring about world peace.
