Still Spinning

February continues to spin 100 miles an hour. After all of the hectic first couple of weeks of the month, when I mentioned it couldn't get any busier, I spoke too soon. I had to go to New Brunswick for 4 days last week, getting stuck in a snowstorm outside of Moncton and didn't get back to KC until Friday. I was home for the weekend and had to turn around and go to Virginia early Monday morning and returned late last night. My sleep patterns have been screwed up for weeks now and on top of it, I've picked up the cold and sinus congestion that Sarah and the kids had last week. It was amazing returning home to 60 degree weather, after trudging through 60+ centimeters of snow on the east coast of Canada. Mira and the boys didn't have school on Friday or Monday of this week, which they didn't seem to complain about - who would, with yet another 4 day weekend. Mira and I spent a lot of time walking and enjoying the spring-like temperatures, which was warranted - she was in one of those up and down moods that required being in a constant state of motion. She managed to be in a good mood on Tuesday and today, enjoying some cafeteria foods and having some solid days in the classroom. We saw and heard a ton of dragon noises this morning and this afternoon, evidence that she continues to be in a positive mood. Since her last big episode at ophthalmology several weeks ago, it was been eerily quiet on the seizure front.
