This was - as you know - a very busy weekend in my household. The Girl made her first Communion on Saturday and we had a beautiful day for it. Sunny and warm (actually hot is more like it. It was well into the 80s) and not much in the way of breezes. Unfortunately, the Boy came down with a fever on Friday, which resulted in my having to go pick him up around 10AM, so he and my husband had to miss the ceremony (is it considered a ceremony??) which really sucked. The Boy was still sick on Saturday, his fever went up to nearly 102 degrees, then came down, then went back up, until it finally broke for good Saturday night.

The Girl is also sick now as well. She started Saturday morning with not feeling well and by Saturday night, she was running a fever. She was out of school today and most likely out tomorrow as well. Sigh.

But I have to admit, for not feeling well, she stayed in pretty good spirits during the party. Her cousins were here, so she had a blast running around with them and I guess it's easy to forget how lousy you feel when you're having fun. The Boy was proof of that.

He went for his evaluation today with the pediatric neurologist, and I'm thrilled to say it is official - he is not  autistic. ADHD, most likely, but most definitely not autistic. My husband and I breathed such a sigh of relief because, until now, all anyone would say was they didn't think he was, but couldn't be certain. Now we are certain and it's such a weight lifted from our shoulders. Thank God.

I should have the final edits on After the Storm turned into my (very patient) editor by the end of the week, and then I should have a release date shortly thereafter. Yay! And then I begin another round of edits on The Pursuit. And then, hopefully, I will  be able to share the news I've been sitting on for so very long... or so I hope. :D

I'm posed and ready to party when you make the announcement. Very excited for you, Kim!

Isn't it ironic how kids always get sick at the most inopportune times? Alex had his first ear infection on the day of his baptism. Oy.

Funny note: my word verification is "discure".
