Oh, what a week!

Happy Thursday, friends.

I'm sorry I've been AWOL for so long. It's been an eventful few days. Here are just some of the highlights:

• My son was diagnosed with mono (Poor little guy—he's miserable.)
• I slipped on a wet floor, fell on my 27-weeks' pregnant belly, and had to get an unscheduled ultrasound to check on the baby. (She's fine. ☺)
• My husband and I have been preparing for the surgery he needs to get at the end of the month. (So stressful...)

Good things happened, too, of course, but I have to say that I'm more than ready for a peaceful and quiet weekend.

Until then, I'll let Louis Armstrong remind us all that, in spite of our troubles, this really is a wonderful world. ☺



Wishing you all a wonderful Thursday. ☺

  14. I saw the word "diagnosed" before anything else and freaked out. I'm glad everyone is okay and I hope everyone feels better soon. I would have cried my eyes out if something had happened to the baby or if your son or husband didn't get the care they needed.

  16. So glad you and the baby are alright. Your poor son! Mono is just awful! I came down with it two days before we closed on our house, and can remember being so tired that I just wanted to leave all of our furniture in the old house. I hope things get better/less busy soon.
