silver linings

Oh Boy...
what a week I have had... and it is not even Friday yet...
Some things I can't go into detail with
BUT let me just tell you this week has been from
H-E- double hockey sticks!!!

It all started Saturday with a stomach bug!!!
NOT pretty people NOT PRETTY!!!
well thank goodness it was only 24 hours of fever puke and more...
what a great way to end my Spring Break...
and then there were things I can't talk about...
and that was Monday and Tuesday
and then Wednesday... I thought my raincloud week was gone...
NOPE...
I got the stomach bug again last night...
so today (Thursday) I took off...
my Mamma came and picked me up at 5 AM to head in to get my sub stuff set up...
I am a freak like that... yes I could have called friends BUT I live like ONE mile away
and I was on EMPTY so it was safe to go in!!!
and to top off today I forgot to send Bub in his Pre K Blue Shirt...
that made me CRY like a baby... I mean UGLY cry... big tears... I felt like the worst MOM ever...
I cried so much my nose swelled up and when my dad dropped Bub off he was like...
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR NOSE... I started crying again!!!

Well let me get to the point of this BOO WHO story...
I am not writing you this to get you to feel sorry for me...
I am writing this because I know we have all been there...

I am in control of my JOY... nothing can take away my JOY not even throw up and big noses.

I keep thinking of Kasey Musgrave's song... Silver Lining
and it talks about how you have to have have a cloudy day to have a silver lining...

so I am choosing to focus on my silver linings...
like...

1. My kiddos LOVED playing this on St. Patrick's Day.

 2. Hubs... I mean my ninja... or is he karate kid.... endways... Ralph and I got some good workouts in between my 2 bouts with the BUG...
between the BUG and Body Pump... I am down a few pounds... YAY

 3.  Every Tuesday night is game night with just Bubs and ME!!!
just the 2 of us... love this time together... even though I lost!!!
 4. I got a new pet!!! My hubby is the bestest in TEXAS... and I got to go get my very own.....
TARANTULA... I named her Talulah Rose!!! She is a juvenile Rosehair and is BEAUTIFUL!!!
She is an iridescent copper color and really is pretty!!!
Hubs and I set all of her stuff up last night... and even though I wasn't there to see my kiddos reactions this morning... I was super excited to know how excited they would be to see her!!! and YES that is me holding her!!! YIKES!!!
 5. Today this was my nurse... she followed my every step today... and I mean every STEP!!!
Mostly we cuddled on the couch!!! That's my Dori Gurl!!!
6.  Every Wednesday night I decorate a napkin for Bub's Thursday's Lunch...
I LOVE doing this!!! and he loves it too.... it always has an I LOVE YOU... a remember your rules section... and a doodle!!! He loves getting them... but I am pretty sure I love making them more!!!

7. I text my mama at like 4:45 this morning and asked if she could drive me to school... she didn't hesitate and came right over... love my mamma

8.  all day long I have been getting how are ya messages... my friends and family are awesome
and I am doing good... i will be back at school tomorrow!!!

9. last but not least... I can keep some applesauce down... YAY and  toast!!!

10. OK one more... packing my lunch for tomorrow will be SUPER EASY


so there you have it...
we all have those poopy days and in my case week
BUT instead of drowning under your stormy black cloud....
focus on the silver linings
FIND YOUR JOY
and
focus on your blessings

  1. So glad you are feeling better and kudos to you for looking on the bright side of things! :o) Your pup is too precious! I'm not so sure about your spider...but I guess she's pretty...for a spider that is! Love your little love notes to your son. My parents used to do a similar thing with me when I was young! Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  2. Glad you are feeling better....save the notes ... you know me....reminds me of the orgami swans the dad made for his daughter and when she was leaving for school, the box of them fell and scattered on the driveway...he never knew she had saved each one. :) Love my Dori Granddawg...she is so so sweet. Love my Bubs, even when we play Sorry and he hates to be knocked out but dearly loves to kick me off the board. LOL It's been a rough week, I know...and tomorrow is Friday and you can rest over the weekend. Chin up, upward and onward through the fog because there is silver lining straight ahead. Glad I was able to take care of you this a.m. Love you bunches.....

  3. Feel better girl! I love seeing your pictures and reading about your sweet mamma! I hope your day flies by tomorrow, so you can get some much needed rest and relaxation. Love the name of Talulah Rose, but not so much the tarantula itself. You are brave....so very, very brave!

  4. SO glad you're feeling better! Dogs are THE absolute best when you don't feel well. I miss my two dog terribly. I'm living in South Korea for a year, and my dogs stayed home. :( Oh, and I love the game Sorry. I always have fun saying "Sorry" in funny ways. I'm so impressed with your new addition. LOVE the name...even though I'm not a spider fan.
