2. This week has been a fruit-basket upset, with moving one boy in to the bedroom vacated by Tim, and all that. Minimal schoolwork has been getting done, as well.
3. Text messages from Jen indicate she's been hard at work, chauffeuring Grandma to appointments, as well as job searching. I pray earnestly she won't get discouraged, but will keep on with a positive attitude.
4. Botanist Boy and Little Bit each have a room of their own now, for the first time ever in their lives! They are finding the house a little empty, and lonely, without their older siblings.
5. Received a Mother's Day card in the mail today, from my girl. Yes, I cried, especially because she wrote: It makes me kind of sad thinking that this is our first Mother's Day that we aren't together for. Sometimes life is breathtakingly painful.
Since I've missed the past few weeks of Random 5 on Friday, and sharing my 100 Days of Happy snapshots, I'll share them all here. Today marks day 50; halfway through!
