Sheesh, what a week.
It started last weekend with the arrival of all of the in-laws. Lucky me, I have two complete sets of them (sarcasm there). But really, it wasn't that bad, it's not like any of them stayed at our house. Just dropped in occassionally.
And it's been a week of graduation dinner for Chaco, graduation ceremony for Chaco, Birthday for Meego, end-of-year band concert for Meego... a small part of me is secretly happy that Wolfgang didn't make it to the state track meet. Do NOT tell him!
Of course, life continues to go on in the midst of all this - groceries, tutor students, laundry, crossing guard, etc., etc., etc.
But one nice even-keeled thing this week has been the presence of Chaco. His last day of school was last Friday, so he's been around the house. He's been mowing and weed whacking and cleaning up piles of crap from his various end-of-year school projects. He's upgrading his Frankensteinian computer and using the old parts to build a whole nother computer. To me, it seems like he's been more productive this week than he has all school year.
Of course I jumped on that productivity bandwagon.
"You should clean my computer, it's making funny noises and acting sluggish" (it was).
Here is the "before" pic of the innards. There was about 20 pounds of dust in there, I think, that the photo doesn't do justice.
He not only cleaned the hardware, but he also did a good software scrub, and I'm now blogging from a lean mean computing machine! He put my keys back FINALLY, cleaned the monitor... I feel like a new woman! Or at least a new woman with computer!
And really, I cannot complain about the busyness this week. It's all been for nice reasons. Who wants dull?
But I am looking forward to the weekend.
