Time Flies When You are Spinning

Literally, I was spinning from last Tuesday until it finally stopped earlier this week. I ended up with a case of vertigo and also a sinus infection which just made the vertigo worse. So let's just say that last week was a daze. I did get to the doctor on Saturday morning, got some medication and have been feeling much better since then. I had a follow up appointment yesterday and everything looked good. So that is what I have been up to for the last week, now for the rest of the house life went on.

Last week was finals, so Chad had to finish up the last bit of work. He also felt it was necessary to relax by playing video games with Schneider until the wee hours of the morning two nights in a row. Let's just say that they were in the middle of the week, so it took a toll on his week. We had a graduation party on Saturday that we went to for just a little while. There was another one we were invited to, but it was outside and it had been raining all day, so just think Maddie + Mud = complete filth. Sunday was graduation, Chad went to a party after for a little while and then the Wilke's came over to watch the Tigers on ESPN. It was a bad week for baseball in our house and it doesn't seem to be looking any better this week for the Brewers. At least the rest of the division is losing, so we haven't lost too much ground. Monday was a day off for Chad. No meetings. I did some shopping for Maddie's birthday party. Got some party goods and a few other things. It is a Dora theme, so it is turning into a fiesta. Yesterday Chad had meetings in the morning and then I had that doctor's appointment in the afternoon. Last night was the faculty social. We had a good time. Maddie was a mess when we left, but enjoyed every moment of it.

Chad is at the Astro's game right now. It was suppose to be the baseball coaches, but Schneider and Phill had to bail on them. Since he is out tonight and usually it is girls' night on Wednesday, my night out has been moved to tomorrow. This weekend is another graduation party and trying to get things ready for Maddie's party the following weekend. We aren't sure what we are going to do on Tuesday for her actual birthday, but I'm sure we will think of something.

Happy Graduation to Kendra on Friday. We wish we could be there, but we will see you soon.

Happy Anniversary to Karl and Renee. Hope you get a chance to get out by yourselves.

Emma figured out how to use other things to crawl up onto the chair and couch. She also has gotten good at climbing onto the fireplace ledge.
Here's Maddie at the Zoo two weekends ago. I was really bad with the camera last week since I wasn't feeling well. Then I forgot to take it last night to the party.
Emma in the garden. That is a loner from a friend. It has been moved many times since Maddie uses it as a step stool to get up to the counter or DVDs.
