WHEEEEEKEND!

I'll never stop missing my mom when she's not with me. I don't think I'll ever be too old for my mama. And now she's here! And it's great. :)

It's been a crazy couple of weeks with work and class and sick kids. Anders is going to be gone all next week on a business trip so I'm even more grateful that my mom is here to help out, and the kids have been wound tight as rubber-bands counting down the days to her arrival. Now they're ignoring us all equally in the wake of the fun gifts that she bestowed. We all made out like bandits, it's been like Christmas around here today.* Then to celebrate her arrival in Sweden after a grueling 24-hour trip, we made her go to McDonald's. ooooooh, the irony.

Martin has had a tough couple of days with ongoing fever, chills, aches, coughs and headaches. He's looked so peaked and wan, it's just heartbreaking. He's finally starting to feel a bit better. Poor little boo. In the middle of it all he lost a top front tooth and when he smiles at me with those big brown eyes and that great big gap it just kills me.

At work, we've been having some discussion about changing my job title because we might be hiring a junior assistant for our department, and there could be confusion between our various job responsibilities. I did some brainstorming and sent a list of suggestions to my boss, which thoroughly cracked me up. I had a little help from this great site, and came up with these: Dynamic Marketing Designer, Creative Coordination Consultant, Senior Implementation Orchestrator, Product Creative Specialist...hee!

I realized today that it costs nearly $100 to fill our car(s) with gas each time we fill the tank. Man, that sucks.

Bonny Bright Birthday Wishes to reebert!

*Books! Candy! CDs! Clothes! Toys! Food! But the best present was Mom. :)
