In our lives… It was my first week of treatment for Hep C. This month the treatment is one self-administered shot a week and pills twice a day. Another set of pills will be added the month after. The first day after the shot was miserable, but the rest of the week was better than we all expected. I am hoping that my luck will hold and the meds will actually work while I get to enjoy this holiday season. We already set up our tree and mostly decorated the house. We also started doing activities from our Christmas list and got out our Christmas books yesterday – yay for holiday reading.
School:Anna enjoyed her school week, they started learning about weather and set up a rain gauge just in time for our first winter storm. Here it simply means “rain”. Anna just loves “doing real science again”. Her teacher arranged a “repeat parent teacher conference” for us, because Lars couldn’t make it to the first one, and we will meet with her again on Monday.
Afterschool: Anna was hinting that she wants a Wii for Christmas, and my husband finally came out and said that we already have a Wii. Needless to say, there was a lot of Wii playing this week, and daughter can occasionally beat me at bowling, which makes her very happy. We also played some board games – I am planning to write my own gift guide about our favorite board games later this week.
On Anna’s Christmas wish list this year:
- A cute little stuffed puppy from Ikea
- New games
- A pretty green and blue dress
- Nice parents
- Lots of chocolate and chocolate cookies
- 2 or 3 candy canes
- Next Story of the World – book and CD
