For now, I'll just say it's nice to get back home to David and clean sheets and a tidy house (for all his craziness, not every husband would thoroughly clean the house when home alone for the weekend, and I'm so grateful!).
Another full week ahead of us, but if I can just get through it, it will be Thanksgiving and then the last week of class. I'm not planning beyond that, yet.
I'm really not ready to look ahead to December and all it brings... This year Zuzu understands birthdays so that will add a new sad/sweet element to Eliza's birthday. This is also the year she really gets Christmas, so that will be so fun, though I expect it will also be a little bittersweet. I usually prep for my sadness slump by getting shopping and Christmas cards taken care of, but I've bought 1.5 Christmas gifts and I need to get organized.
David's grandma is doing okay since going home last Monday. Not much improvement and still feeling quite uncomfortable, but will continue with another round of chemo and hope that stuff is doing its job. She'll have a scan in December to see if there is a measurable difference in the cancer.
Zu asked me out of the blue today if Grandma Peppa was feeling better yet. She can be so sweet, which is comforting since she was an exercise in toddler sociopathy for much of the weekend.
