it all started out like it was gonna be awesome. monday the husby had a surprise half day! we celebrated; jumped up and down for joy and high-fived each other (well we didnt actually high-five, but we felt like it). tuesday i went to bible study, had the time of my life, as usual. then it hit. like a ton of bricks, an "emotional roller coaster." you may know what i'm eluding too, i'm not gonna spell it out for you cuz this is kinda public. anyway. i was not feeling myself and had a crap day. a real crap day. the kinda day that before i had kids i would have just slept in, ignored everyone and kept my mouth shut. these things are impossible when you are a parent, especially the ignoring everyone part. all day i was trying not to lose my patience, which of course i did, which of course led to shame, like i'm a bad mom or something (stupid shame). i'm not a bad mom. i know this. i digress......
we survived. the husby got home we ate, the kids went to bed and ooh! adult time. a real conversation!
well the rest of the week just got worse. our dog got stolen. yes stolen. i'm pretty sure at least. he's gone and we're all just a LITTLE sad. then aaron's check was like a quarter of the size it normally is. that's when i cried, stressed out about money. stupid money. (actually i may have cried more than that.....)
then we GOT THE FLU. (in the middle of the night so we are still lacking in sleep) ack!!!
so i think you will agree with me, this week sucked. we're all on the mend, though. healthy again. i also have a nice warm house. we found a cheap heater on craigslist and we are even toastier than before. i also have a wonderful husband who took care of me and two kids, cleaned up vomit and kept the house clean all weekend. he really is amazing. oh also.... i met some new neighbors, so that's always good.
i just wanted to keep things real here. we are on the mend, i'm still grumpy, we are alive and will survive. also i realize that these are very small problems in the big scheme of things but i dont want any of you to think things are perfect over here or anything.
and.... i dont even have any pretty pictures to share with you...... oh wait! i can come up with something:
ps i'm also VERY thankful for PBS.
