Not the best week or two

A.K.A. why I've been so quiet since before Luke's party:

* The kitchen sink broke the Monday after Luke's party. Couldn't find the replacement part because is proprietary to the company that makes it. Good news: replacement part is free. Bad news: took over a week to get it to us. Good news: part arrived today and was as easy to install as they said! Still, over a week without a functional kitchen faucet has been a challenge. Don't realize how much you use something until you don't have it.
* DH came home sick and was home sick for 4 days last week with some kind of virus, likely whatever Luke started with that lead to....
* Luke's ear infection, diagnosed last Thursday after continued fever following the party weekend. First one in over a year. We're being punished for mentioning that at his appointment just a couple of weeks ago. He has to take nasty medicine again, which is such a dramatic ordeal.
* My grandfather was in the hospital for 5 days last week with bleeding. They did get it to stop and he is home now, but this is the second time in a year, so he will have to come off the blood thinners, which makes a stroke (like he had back in July) more likely, but he can't keep going to the hospital twice a year for bleeding either.
* Work blew up big time just before the party. Worked 10-12 hours a day all week last week (week after party) and still not everything is solved. Things are a little calmer for the moment, but it will crank up again in a week or so. I am not looking forward to the next round of having 3 projects turn up together (this was just 2) early next year. I can't go through this again, because....
* As of today, I either literally made myself sick over it or I've caught some kind of stomach bug (possibly both). Started feeling bad mid day yesterday (Monday), went to bed at 6:30 PM, was sick sometime in the night, and have been nauseous all day today. Not sure if it's stress or what. Both DH and Luke had nausea spells with their recent illnesses. Not sure if it is related. Hoping to feel much better tomorrow, because now is not the time to be sick at work (but my manager(s) have been very understanding).

Hope your last couple of weeks have been better.

Currently feeling: trying to hang on
