Working hard

Scott's usual work schedule is from 8-5, Monday through Friday. So he'll leave about 745am and get home around 515pm. Every once in awhile(maybe once a year), they'll have a big project deadline and need to work longer hours for a period of time. That started yesterday and will go through around Thanksgiving(let's hope not longer but he may need to do a little extra time up until Dec. 10). Last night he got home from work at 945pm. This morning he took off an hour early(645), hoping he can leave a little earlier tonight so that he can see the kids before they go to bed. He'll also have to work all day Saturday and maybe Sunday. But we're hoping if he gets lots of hours in during the other 6 days of the week, that he won't have to go in Sunday, or at least not for the entire day. But we'll see. So these will be a long couple of weeks for our family. But so far, so good. Yesterday went surprisingly well for me and the kids and I'm sure it's because Elisabeth and Charles had a lot of really good, friendly play time. They didn't argue and fight as much as normal so that was a little blessing from the Lord for me. And Monday she's back on track which means she'll be in school again and she's really looking forward to that. I'm a little nervous about her going back since there have been swine flu cases around here and she's not vaccinated. Maybe I'll try and sneak a little hand sanitizer in her pocket and tell her to pull it out whenever someone touches her hands and rub some on real quick. I think she'd be willing enough to do it if it meant there was less of a chance of her getting sick.
