The Not So Planned Weekend

Sometimes the best laid plans go astray.

Have you heard that before? Well, I certainly have, and unfortunately, it describes my weekend, and the past several days perfectly.

I worked on Thursday, and towards the end of my shift, I began to get a headache. No big deal. I’ll take something, and be as good as new…or so I thought.

I had made a mental list of everything that needed to be done this weekend. I needed to finish making our Christmas cards, mail them, finish any last minute shopping…

However, none of this happened. No instead, I was confined to the couch and my bed for three days – Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, sick. And when I wasn’t occupying those spaces, I could be found in the bathroom. This was not exactly the weekend I had planned.

I am just now starting to slowly emerge. Something about not being able to keep anything down for over 48 hours leaves a girl weak.

While I wasn’t able to do the things I wanted, it did give me a rare opportunity to observe a few things. Based on those observations I made a few conclusions:

  1. I have said this before, but I’ll say it again…I have a great support group of family and friends that are always willing to help without my asking.
  2. My husband is capable of doing housework! Though it wasn’t done to my specifications, it was done, and for that I am thankful.
  3. My kids can wear wrinkled clothing (refer back to #2).
  4. My kids can get their own bowl of cereal…why do I continue to do this for them?
  5. Ruthie is quite the beautician and inspector. She managed to fix her hair, comb Owen’s, and make sure Griffin’s looked acceptable.
  6. Ruthie is also a wonderful chef. She “cooks” a mean peanut butter and jelly, along with whatever else she could find.
  7. My kids can work together when necessary. This makes me smile.

So was this the weekend I had planned as Christmas is fast approaching? Certainly not.

Am I blessed? Yes, more than I know.

Only At My House,

  5. There is a set of Prototype Medic Power Armor in the sewers of
    Old Olney. Resident Evil and Silent Hill are often at the top of survival
    horror games lists. Crippling a limb will make them far less effective, and
    they seem to drop weapons easily if you aim for the
    torso. Missile Launcher – DMG: 20 + 150 AOE – The Missile Launcher in Fallout 3 takes its styling queues from the more realistic, single-shot bazookas and RPGs found in many modern first-person shooters.
    If this therapy is not yet available in your area, locate the nearest behavioral optometrist for more traditional approaches to vision therapy through the Optometric
    Extension Program Foundation International or the College of Optometrists in Vision Development.
