This Week

Today is my day for taking care of kids and cleaning. (I try not to indulge in these activities very often.) Lucas is out of school this week for Thanksgiving. At the moment he has a school chum over playing, which is nice because it’s keeping him busy.  Asher is sleeping. So far, I’m having a good day because I’m not trying to work at the same time. A lot of my stress comes from trying to wear too many hats at one time.

Tonight and tomorrow I have to work (editing the last chapter of our med term book), but then we Wilsons are heading out of town on Wednesday morning. We have rented a house in Bodega Bay and will be there Wednesday through Sunday. I’m so excited about having a proper vacation! (  If I manage things properly, I won’t have to work while we’re away, or at most, I’ll have to write an article that’s due and another little project. It’s nice to have a break!!

This past Saturday we had a Thanksgiving dinner at my MIL’s house—with most of the step relations from Merced. I kind of got suckered into it. I thought she was inviting the four of us over for dinner, and given that we are going to be out of town over the holiday, I said, “Sure. No problem. Sounds great.” Then she told me that the six people from Merced would also be there. Well, it was an OK time, even though my FIL started discussing guns and his teenage life of crime in Tulsa, Oaklahoma, at the dinner table. I don’t like Lucas to hear his grandpa glorifying stuff like that.

Soon, we’ll be playing on the beach, flying kites, and relaxing in someone else’s house.
