It’s been one of those weeks. You know, the ones where you look up and say where did the time go? Is it really Saturday?
A week ago we lost our sweet Bella Jeanne. She’d been with me for 9 years. She’d struggled with digestive issues for way too long and we decided to do the compassionate thing and let her go. Earlier this year we lost our little blind pug mix, Perry. They were both such important parts of our family. It’s funny how God works. We had two little miracles show up and we had to say goodbye to two of our our furry kids.
I’ve been grieving in small pieces here and there. My mom and I had a good conversation about how once you’re a mom you no longer have the same luxuries you had before. I’ve had to put on the Mommy face and get a good cry in when the kids aren’t around.
And, both boys had colds this week. I toted both of them to the doctor and we were there for almost two hours. I’ve spent more time suctioning the noses as the boys scream at the top of their lungs than I care to remember. Our pediatrician said that kids are rolling in with colds already this week so even though it’s only September. I’m breaking out our homeopathic immune boosters early this year.
Joe was away on business in two (maybe three??) different states. I know it sounds horrible to say that I’m not sure exactly where he was. He’s so busy that if his appointments don’t go on my calendar I forget. Thank goodness for cell phones and text messages because we’re able to stay in close contact even if I’m not sure where he’s calling from.
My freezer meals saved me! I’ll share more on that soon but I got dinner on the table every night. On that note – Keeper of the Home has the Kindle version of her ebook, Plan it, Don’t Panic, on sale for $0.99 through Monday, September 9th. It’s a great resource for serving your family home-cooked meals and saving money while doing it.
And, I found a few stolen moments to look at ideas for decorating boys’ rooms on Pinterest.
