I thought it might be nice to share a bit of this week and realized that there are many aspects to it. Some rich and juicy. Others not so shiny. So, in an effort to show what is really happening in our lives as of today here you go...
the bad and the ugly--
-I torqued my neck while swimming on Monday and have been askew since then. It seems to have gotten worse with spasms and I feel triple my age. Plus, if anyone touches my neck I think I might scream. Oh, and did I mention the piercing headaches? Mostly, I'm upset because I've had to miss swimming the last few days.
-My girlie got her ears pierced for her upcoming thirteenth birthday and the guy botched it. One earring is too far toward her face and the other is too low AND too close to her face. The worst part is that she is disappointed. Not what we were going for.
-The big daddy's working hard to finalize preparations for the Friday Medieval Games. He's been nicknamed "The Blur" by his family that love him so. I'll be glad when I can see his face in focus again.
-And..pretty sure I killed the oven. A shattered glass of water dripped down into the back of the stove. It screamed at me for twenty minutes before I finally hit the circuit breaker. So concerned about what "FO" meant that it didn't even occur to me to turn off the power. Plus, FO doesn't sound very nice if you ask me.
-My neck isn't worse than three days ago. So that's improvement.
-My girlie had her ears pierced for the first time. That is a big day. Lots of breathing in and out by this mama. She's growing up. Oh my. Good stuff.
-Once all the "stuff" is done the day of Medieval Games will be fabulous. I will be able to share in the experience with my sixth grade girlie and the big daddy. memory making stuff.
-The baby is over her "whatever-pneumonia-ick" she had last week. Sleeping through the night again. Wahoo!!!
-I'm currently eating a lime popsicle.
-I plan to go to bed early tonight which makes me a bit giddy since it so rarely happens.
-I'm ready for my girlie to turn thirteen this weekend. Gifts are wrapped in silks. Cake is planned. Memories of her birth story are surfacing and bringing a smile to remember my first baby born many years ago and yet it seems like yesterday.
-It's almost summer. lazy mornings. time outside. flip flops. swimming. afternoon rainstorms. laughter. reading. my youngest boy pouncing on grasshoppers and getting quite good at catching them, gently of course. love it all.
-The rain in the past few days has nestled in all the new seeds we planted over the weekend. Even the secret ones that my little guy and I planted around our neighbors in the alley. ssshhhh.
What about you?
