Life Needs A Hefty Bag

Something that will hold everything, expand beyond comprehension, and still not split at the seams.

You Just Never Know

Well this week has certainly started out interesting, that's for sure!! Sunday was my best friend Rhonda's birthday. She turned 29, and swears she's done aging LOL There's been a virus making the rounds here, and I wasn't feeling the greatest, and even after talking to her for over an hour that day, and seeing her briefly to give her some clothes I found for the kids on clearance, I still didn't remember until late afternoon time!! That's proof right there that I wasn't feeling well...I'm usually right on top of the birthday thing!! LOL Sounds like she had a good day though, and that's a great start to the last go-round of the turbublent 20s! LOL

The other werid thing that happened this week was, that same day, AFTER I'd realized it was Rhonda's birthday and called to tell her what an idiot I am for forgetting LOL was that my best friend Kayte called me frantic, telling me that her sister was in the hospital. After listening to the situation, I went up to sit with her for a few hours. When we went in to see her sister, it was really strange for me. Not seeing her in the condition she's in, but not being intimidated or scared of what I saw. Of course my heart ached for her and I immediately wished there was something, anything I could do, but of course I'm helpless, and I hate that feeling. But at least I wasn't scared or intimidated. I was calm and, most importantly to me, able to be a support to Kayte. For those of you who are the praying type, if you feel so inclined to keep their family & friends in your prayers of healing, I know they would all appreciate it.

This weekend is probably Trey's last swim meet. I've looked at the qualifying times for the meet next weekend, the state meet, and he's a good 10 seconds off the mark for any of his individual or relay events. I'm sure next year he'll have a better chance of making it to state, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there. He's already expressed a desire to be on the team again next fall, so I'm happy to be able to know that so we can start working towards helping him be on the team again. He's really enjoyed it, and his swimming skills have improved significantly!

Otherwise not a whole lot new. Just trying to hold on tight while this virus makes its way through the house again. I work the rest of this week, all of next week, and then I have an ENTIRE WEEK OFF!! There's only been one other time I've had a paid "vacation," and that was when I was on maternity leave after Derrick was born. That wasn't much of a vacation though, cuz we were going to the hospital every day for the first 19 days, and we got married somewhere in there too LOL I was only off for six weeks before I had to go back to work, and a lot of that was just run, run run!! This time around I'm going to RELAX, even if it's just a little bit!! We were supposed to go visit a friend, that was the original plan, but since she's not talking to us I guess that's not gonna happen. That's okay'll give me a chance to get some spring cleaning done around here, and spend some quality time with my guys...definite bonus!!

I'll post again soon...have a great one!!
