In fact, this week has been long. It feels like it's been a month since we first put the offer in on Tuesday. Jacob in a way, is kind of empathetic, especially towards us. His first 2 days of school were rough, and he didn't do any work at all. Then his next 2 days were great and he got 4 stickers on his reward calendar. But it seemed that as soon as our stress levels rose, he began to get sick again.
Jacob was sick last Friday which was also a PD day for his school. So even though it was a long weekend, it was a write off. Then on Thursday evening, out of nowhere, he began puking. So this weekend, will also likely be a total write off, which is tough because it's Canadian Thanksgiving on Monday. That's officially 2 long weekends in a row in which Jacob has been displaying flu like symptoms. But he's tough and even though he can't eat much, he's still laughing as he watches cartoon.
But now we have our new house, so we already feel much better. I slept about 10 hours last night because I haven't been sleeping much this week. Now we just have to wait until November 15th to move into our new home. It's bitter sweet because we've been here for 11 years and it will be tough to move out, but it's for the best. And I'm sure that we can all use a fresh start.
