Day Three, Four and Five of the long weekend

Trying to catch up about my days off.

Sunday I was up by 7:30, which of course the dogs don't mind one bit. I read some more on a blog I am reading (4 years of the family working towards it dream goal, very inspiring). I don't know if it's from going off all his medications or what but DH has quickly gone back to a more "normal" sleep schedule. He's in bed by midnight or 1am (versus 3 or 4 am) and up between 8 and 9, so that is probably a good thing....(though don't tell anyone, I really liked my couple of hours of just me time and the peace and quiet!).

DD and I planted all the annual flowers in the window boxes and whiskey barrels.  Looks nice and I don't know how, but I purchased exactly the right amount of flowers and potting soil!

Monday and Tuesday were a blur....we are still dealing with many issues related to our estrangement from our son (he seems to think all the thousand and thousands of dollars of assets we let him take with him out of the country (which was originally just to be for 6-8 weeks, and is now 10 months) is his and his to do with what he wants. I honestly don't even know who he is anymore. It's causing much stress for all of us, including my mom, to say the least.  I don't even think I slept more than a couple hours total Monday night and when I was asleep I kept dreaming that I couldn't breathe.

Today I'm back to work - trying to wrap up the specific documentation and explanations requested by the IRS auditor. Their CPA emailed me the list yesterday morning, but I since I had the day off as vacation, I decided I wasn't giving it up to work on this (nor was I in any mental shape after a sleepless night) and emailed back that it would be to be completed on Wednesday. I'm almost done with it, I just need to type out my notes. I have lots of pages as "proof", so I am going to wait until I am at the office tomorrow so I can scan them all. If I tried to use my home scanner it would take me hours, as it only does one page at a time. Our copy machines at work will take a whole stack of papers and scan into a pdf in seconds.
