April has proved to be the busiest month I've had in a really long time! In case you live under a rock and didn't know, I do Relay for Life with Team Go Go at Temple Terrace Relay for Life. April started out with our team's biggest fund raiser. We have an auction and invite all our friends. We raised right at $7000 this year in just a few hours!!
The following week, Mom and Aunt Ninny came down on Wednesday. They got to watch MK at gymnastics. Because it is in the middle of the week, not many people ever come to Tampa when she has it. Thursday we woke up early and took MK to school then headed to the hospital just in time for Monkey's surgery. He did great! We worked on packing up the rest of our stuff for the big move on Friday. Friday I signed the lease for our new apartment with the plans to start moving little stuff. When I got to the apartment complex I was told the carpet had not been replaced yet and it would be 3 before we could get in. We went to visit Monkey at the hospital. He was still being a trooper and had to have very little pain meds. (He had crano something or other. The plates in his head were fused together and he didn't have a soft spot, so they went in and separated the plates.)
Wes got back to Tampa and after a visit to the hospital to see Monkey, we began loading up his plant truck like a moving truck. We had a few friends come help and we got most of our stuff in one load. We knew it would be a late night, so we left MK with Mom and Ninny at Brother's house. Saturday was MK's birthday party. Luckily it wasn't until 3 pm, so that gave us time to get things together. She had a GREAT turnout and got lots of stuff.
Our Relay was on April 15th, which was also MK's 3rd birthday. I got to the Relay site about noon on Friday to help set up the Survivor area. It was a great event! I had to leave at about 7:15 am to go to work. We work 2 Saturdays a year, of course it had to fall the same weekend as Relay and MK's birthday! I got home at about 12:30, so yes I was awake for more than 24 hours (minus the 1.5 hours I slept in a camp chair at Relay). I got up about 3:15 and we headed to Brother's to get MK. We ended up going to Chuck-E-Cheese for an impromptu birthday party for her. Jessica has recently moved to town and treated MK to pizza and fun at Chuck-E-Cheese! Brother, Nat and Mac also went with us. I went to bed the same time as MK! I also had to work Sunday because a co-worker and I have been teaching our adoptive parent classes on Sundays for the last 9 weeks. As you can guess I've been exhausted!!
The following weekend was Easter. We had a low key weekend. We went to Brother/Natalie's for Easter dinner. It was good to hang out with not much happening.
Hopefully I'll be better at keeping update!
