This week is a big one for my family and me.

Sometimes, usually on the days that I forget that I'm an adult (almost every day, actually), I am struck by how major and how impacting things can be.

This week has two big things going on: my grandfather will have a major surgery tomorrow and my husband will take the first part of his CPA exam on Saturday.  They're two very different events.  The first will hopefully restore a level of equilibrium to the life of my grandparents.  The second comes at the beginning of a career and is the start of a journey.

This morning, I realized that each will only take a matter of hours to occur, in spite of months of preparation, hard work, and a good dose of worry.

We're all nervously waiting with some anxious and some excited anticipation right now, hoping for the very best and keeping our finger crossed and our prayers constant.  

You might not hear from me until the end of the week.  I have a few babysitting jobs and a few extra things to do at home.  I'll try to stop in and say hello, though!
