I have a ton of work doing resets for one of the accounts my company services. This is an unusual-for-me addition to life, but nothing that can't be worked into my calendar. It's the rest of it that is going to yank my hair out of my head. This week is especially heinous looking but I know we will manage and muddle through it.
In addition to my larger than normal workload this week, I have 2 doctor appointments, baby has 1, the van needs servicing and we're going to Charleston on Friday for dh's grandfather's birthday. All while my husband works his current shift. I'm trying not to get myself worked up over any of it.
Saturday morning my friend's husband died. Ann is one of my CRHP sisters and her dh Art has been dealing with a load of health problems the past year, culminating with a small stroke a couple weeks ago and a major one last week. Their daughter was dealing with cervical cancer at the same time Art was dealing with his health problems. Ann has missed a lot of work amid all of this to boot. There are several friends with seasonal illnesses, a coworker whose dh is having surgery this week.
Lots of people around me need prayers and when I stop and think about it, my problems are nothing. It's all rather humbling.
My prayer for myself this week is that I can maintain the discipline I need to complete my work, get the other stuff done, and get on the road Friday in time to meet the family for dinner. Dh wants to keep the kids home from school but I don't think it's a wise choice given ds15's academic magnet school, and the other things I need to do to get ready. The kids at home won't make it easier for me. I'd rather check them out early or haul hiney as soon as they get home.
