There was a hijacking...

I haven't blogged in forever.  You see, last week, my week was all planned out.  It was going to be pretty busy.  Then on Tuesday night about 11:15, my week was hijacked.

Jennifer, my law partner called.  She was in labor.  2 weeks earlier than her scheduled c-section.  Also 2 weeks earlier than family was to arrive to take care of Joshua.  I got out of bed, loaded up Lola and headed out to where she lives (about 30 minutes away).  I stayed with sleeping Joshua while she went to the hospital.  We thought they'd just go ahead and do the c-section.  We thought wrong.  They gave her medicine to stop the contractions.

She got back home about 7:15 on Wednesday morning, and I went ahead and took Joshua to pre-school and proceeded to do both of our jobs that day.  Then around 12:30 she called and her water had broken.  She did have the baby that afternoon, so I went to pick up Joshua from school and took him to meet his baby sister.  I stayed until I had to go to school and teach that evening.

So on top of my busy week in court, I got to include Jennifer's busy week in court, plus keeping up with the 3 year old for a while, on top of my 4 nights of school last week.  That was my hijacking!  I was hijacked by a 5 pound bundle of joy named Harper Catherine!

A comparison shot!

Tiny, tiny feet...

This is just a staged shot Jennifer sent me today of Joshua, his new tractor & his new sister...nobody needs to call CPS!
I had hoped that this week would be better, but my stress level is at an all time high.  I'm starting to realize that the last time she took 12 weeks maternity leave, it was our slowest 3 months of the year.  Not the case now.  Also, and this is both good and bad, I think we have more clients now than we have ever had since opening in January 2005.  Top that with school 4 nights a week and I don't know so much that I'm swimming as drowning, being resuscitated and thrown back in, drowning, being resuscitated and thrown back in, and repeat.

I'm going to try to be better about keeping up the blog during this mess of a few months!
