It's been a crazy week at our house!! First there was Evie's surgery. She has pretty much completely recovered, and her eye looks great! I think that the blockage has been cleared up, and hopefully there won't be any more eye goop problems.
Thursday morning, Evie and I made the couple hour trip to my parent's house. Both of my sisters were there too, which was really nice. My parent's house is fairly big, but when my sisters are both there with their husbands, and M and I are there with Evie, it seems like you can't find an empty corner. To make matters worse, one of my sisters has two LARGE black labs, plus Keeka thrown into the mix, and the house seems more like a zoo. M, Evie, and I have been sleeping at my grandparent's house across the street when we visit to alleviate some of the commotion. It's nice to spend a little more time with my grandparents too. They are only in their early 70s, and I hope that Evie will be able to really get to know them.
Saturday morning M and I had to leave early to come back home. We had tickets to The Great Taste of the Midwest, which is a craft beer festival. M works for a beer distributor and he received some leftover tickets through work. I am not the beer snob that he is, but I still thought it was pretty neat. Imbibing to intoxication is not really the point of the festival, but it's pretty much unavoidable. We tried A LOT of good beers, and had fun hanging out just the two of us.
Yesterday was spent recovering and playing with Evie. I have to begin going to school this week to prepare my classroom. I can't believe that I only have two more weeks before school starts!! I know it's cliche, but time sure does fly when you are having fun. I'm looking forward to a new school year. I'm not coaching this year, and I finished my master's degree in May, and there are so many cool things I want to try out this year. I feel like I'll have more time to focus on implementing and perfecting some of the things that I learned in my master's program.
Before all of that, I need to clean my house. I better get to it before Evie wakes up!!
