That's what my week has been like all week long. Up and down. Good news and bad news. It's quite annoying really.
I'm not going to share all the bad, because I don't want to talk about it. But we didn't get to go to New York last night. Everyone was pretty bummed, at least the grown-ups. Especially the one who had to work on his paper all night.
In the good column, Matthew completely aced one of his finals already. He basically got the highest grade he's ever achieved since we've been here, so that's pretty awesome.
Like I said, it's just been up and down all week. Matthew has been home working on papers most of the week, which is hard, since I've still got to do school with Elijah and keep Sophia out of his hair. That's a lot of fun, as you can imagine.
Have I mentioned I don't like roller coasters, at all? They make me nauseous, kind of like this week has. I'm so ready for it to be over and we can move into the happy Christmas countdown mode. I'd be down with that. I've already got a list planned of fun family things to do together. Number one is going to the big drive through lights display they do here every year. Oh and stop and get coffee and donuts on the way! Hopefully tomorrow night! Our church is doing Christmas Eve and Christmas day services and I'm looking forward to attending both. Not just because Sophia has so many Christmas dresses to wear! For one, since Matthew's been so busy with school, it's been a few weeks since we all sat in a service together. Also, as a Christian, Christmas is my most favorite time of year to go to church.
I've got so many presents to wrap it's getting overwhelming! But still on my fun to-do list. See almost everyone in our family finds it easier (and I can't blame them) to order presents online and mail them straight here. So almost everything is unwrapped. I've got my work cut out for me.
What else? Well, we'll be baking cookies and watching Christmas movies too. All fun stuff. If we can just get off this roller coaster week NOW please and thank you!
P.S. Matthew's last paper has to be turned in by five today, after that we're home free!
