This and That!

Mr. S is finally back at school. He has had bronchitis and a lovely sinus infection which makes his asthma do a happy dance. On top of that, he was allergic to the medicine. He looked like a leopard after 2 doses. He said, "Mom, I am a Missouri Tiger, not a leopard". So, no medicine for 2 days until the penicillin was out of his little body. Let's just say, I get very little done while he is home. High-maintenance...but I wouldn't trade a second of it. What is next for me...I feel like I have been on a "not so fun" ride at the amusement park since last Spring. I don't know if you have read Heidi's blog...http://heidiswapp.typepad.com/ She keeps posting about Gratitude... It is a powerful word. I am thinking of making a gratitude journal. I need to look closely at every moment of my life. Life is short...I have been reminded of this. Maybe thinking about all I have to be grateful for will change my attitude and get me heading in a better direction. A clean storage room and my studio moved will help even more. wink, wink...

Okay, Catherine sent me this...http://cmscanlon.blogspot.com/ Isn't she just terrific. I needed a good laugh and she delivered. This is called "Boobies". Get it-BOO bees. It had me in stitches. It is the little things in life..isn't it?

Glad your little one is feeling better, nothing worse than having a sick kiddo at home! So glad I could make your day, that cartoon tickled me too!

Happy Halloween!

Ah, the joys of motherhood! I can relate, although I have to say, none of the munchkins have been too bad lately, knock on wood!!!
Yup, a gratitude journal always helps, I guess... sounds like a great idea, actually! Can you share when you start it / are in the middle of it / finish it???
Thank goodness your little one is better now, sending many hugs his way!

I'm glad to hear your little fella is doing better. I kept a gratitude journal for awhile; it was a wonderful "pick-me-up". Just the other day, I was thinking I should get back to keeping track of all I'm grateful for. Thanks for the reminder. And good luck with your journal:)

I always have mixed feelings when the girls are home sick. It definitely is a disrupt to my routine, mixed with it is hard watching them not feel the best, especially at that age, but then all the wonderful chats and snuggles...

I totally laughed at the "Boo Bees"! Too funny!

Poor Sutton! Thank goodness you realized he was allergic. Hope all is better really quick.
Funny thing . . . I came by your blog to give you something that Vicki gave me (it's on my blog) and find that you gave me something that Vicki gave you! LOL! Boy, kindred souls and all that! Thanks for my gift hope you like yours.
Hugs,
