Well the last time I wrote I was hoping to make this past week all about fun and be able to enjoy the week my son had off from school....
We all know life does not come scripted so that we know what is around the next bend....I had a great day last Friday went to the cosmetology school and got my hair colored and cut and was pretty excited. I got a couple of red box movies and prepared to have 4 kids in the house for a sleepover. We watched movies ate spaghetti and had a great Friday night.
Saturday morning, I woke up sick...and so did my son bless his heart....he ran a fever and had a nasty case of pink eye in both eyes it turned out. I didn't get him to the doctor until Monday when he was given an antibiotic and eye drops. He was sick most of the week.
I ended up having to see a gastroenterologist after all and have a big bunch of scary to me tests to have done in the next couple weeks. I stopped the new diabetes medicine that was causing pain, but the issue didn't go completely away so we suspect there is an underlying cause. Let me tell you that fear of the unknown can be crippling and emotionally draining so I have not been in a good mood nor up to the tasks of every day life.
The house is still reflecting the presence of the 4 kids from last week, and that it has been a rough week this week. Dishes are all over the sink and counter. I managed to wash only what we needed to use throughout the week. No one has picked up after themselves. It just isn't pretty.
Other misadventures for the week included our van needing repair (thankfully though we found a mechanic shop, our insurance paid for the towing and the repair was only 136.00 and we had the cash to do it.) The stray dog that we took in around the holidays killed one of our our baby chickens and my son was devastated as he was the one to discover it. He was extremely upset and I still don't think he has forgiven the dog.
Sunday though was sort of a chance at redemption....my daughter and I traveled to a town called Perry here in Florida with my best friend and her daughter for a gymnastics event. It turns out though that her kids were feeling a little nauseated the past couple days so there were barf buckets for the ride (which thankfully no one needed) We survived and had a little fun....my daughter got her face painted
My husband and son had a "guy's day" They went to the movies and saw the Sponge Bob movie and looked around at the local mall and a couple other shops. It turns out they had a really good time, and I was so happy that my son got some special one on one daddy time (because my hubby works alot) and had a little fun on his spring break. (even if it was the last day.)
I came home to this sweet surprise. I have not had roses in a very long time. I was super surprised, my son picked out the necklace and they had cleaned off the table from the weeks disasters and had dinner waiting. We had for the first time in a while, dinner as a family at the table.
This morning my son comes to me with a big stack of papers that include a fundraiser, spring pictures, and a note saying he needs snacks for fasfa testing that starts tomorrow.....after being off all week, now I have to take care of it all today....so off to the grocery store my daughter and I go....but I did find out the store closest to me does all their mark downs on Mondays so here is to checking those out. I am sure there will be some dish washing and laundry in there some where today too.....
What is your Monday looking like?
