Well, I was doing ok! I spent a little bit of time each morning in Spain keeping the blog up to date. And then the 31 of December came, and CC and my four kids hopped on a plane back to Turkey. Firstborn and I stayed a few extra days, then took a flight to get her back to Germany, where her original (before everything got changed) ticket needed to originate. I flew back in late Sunday and hit the ground running Monday with my full teaching load after 3 weeks gone (the last 1/2 week of which I had a substitute teacher). And then on the following Saturday morning, I got a pitiful phone call. Firstborn was so sick she could hardly talk or even open her mouth. She HAD been sick in Spain, then returned and had class that first morning at 8AM. She went to a doctor at college and was diagnosed with tonsillitis. After three days of no improvement, she went back. She has MONO. So, I have not forgotten this blog. In fact, I'm going to get some pictures uploaded tonight. But that's what I've been doing (and in addition to that, all the exams I wrote prior to leaving for Spain were LOST when our local vendor said he illegally sold us an online curriculum and can not restore it. The early bird did NOT get the worm. I've been re-writing them all....) Please pray for my girl.
